If the above file boots, try also this one. This time also the CHDK Splashscreen should be visible and the CHDK Menu int ALT mode accessable (but no overrivedes will be functional).

Thats good!  :D
Next steps are to implement the overrides tasks (Exposure, Capture, Movie, etc.).
I will post a build when i finished that for 101c. ;)

@ ERR99,
is 101a complete?
It depends of your definition of complete... ;)
From the "Feature view" 101a and 100c have the same state of completion. There are of course some minor problems left (optical zooming in videomode hangs sometimes, set_led for script use is not adapted to the S90, blocking of Jodgdial events to the oem firmware in altmode can be optimized). But most off the stuff other should work. If you find something that not work, post it here.

From an earlier post, regarding the second 101a version:

"A few issues for the 101a build:

  The jog dial and control pad buttons are now seemingly unresponsive most of the time, in particular when switching between manual modes.  The Menu button usually works first, and that sort of kicks the rest of the buttons into operation, but there are large periods of time when none of the control buttons work, and then all of a sudden the accumulated many actions are sent to the camera and it sort of goes crazy."

I am trying ver. 101a.  I have not done extensive testing, but I have noticed that when I boot with my SDHC card locked (but not in alt mode) the front control ring does not work properly when changing aperture or shutter speed.  When I unlock the card and boot, these functions work properly.  The rear control dial seems to be functioning properly.

I am also trying to use a USB remote shutter release.  I have enabled remote in the remote parameters menu and have started a couple of the USB scripts, but without reliable success.  Any advice on a script that will work?

The following scripts both triggered the camera occasionally, but not reliably as in the past with an SD870:

@title Remote button
:loop
wait_click 1
is_key k "remote"
if k=1 then shoot
goto "loop"
end

---------------------------------------------

@title Remote button
while 1
  wait_click 1
  if is_key "remote" then shoot
wend

end

  I used a USB remote successfully with the S90 with the first 101a build.  

I don't know if this'll help.  But I heard that the

while a = 0
a = USB_power
wend

code (or something similar) always works, while "is_key..." doesn't always work, so that's what I used.  I didn't try the is_key "remote" though, but with USB_power it works reliably.


EDIT: oh, and I didn't have to enable the USB remote option for that code to work; in the menu it's still deactivated yet the remote works.

Thanks for the quick reply, jblc!

Was that the entire script you ran than worked, or were there other lines?

I ran the following and it froze my camera:

while a = 0
a = USB_power
wend

If there are additional lines I need, can you please post the entire script?

Thanks!

If I get this working, I'll be trying the S90 for some kite aerial photos later this afternoon.  If I can't get the USB remote working, I'll probably just use an intervalometer script that is working well.
