So, what are the S90 users here thinking: Is this a usefull feature?
For sure, it's a great feature!!! thank you!!!
On the same subject, I ask myself if there's features with  rear jogdial and ring lens that can be add with chdk. I don't know, for example: to set the focus during video could be fun...I don't know if people has other ideas and if it's possible with the code...

A last simple question: how can i do to use old scripts??? i don't know code...

If you test the attached test build, you will find two extra options under "Miscellaneous stuff" at the bottom of the list:
"Lock jogdial" which disables the jogdial in non-alt mode.
"Lock keys" which disables the UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT keys in non-alt mode.

So, what are the S90 users here thinking: Is this a usefull feature?



First off...thanks for the explanation of the colors ...I had no idea. 

I did download the latest bin with the jog wheel fix.  All I did was copy it over the existing older version, but when I load the os, I do not get the options listed in the misc stuff area.  I might be doing something wrong.  I made sure I unlocked the card, then copied it over and renamed it.  Am I missing something.  This was for version 100c. 

Thanks,

G

Hmm, maybe i uploaded the wrong 100c build. I cleaned up and rebuilded for 100c. So please test the attached build.

Tried your latest bootdisk.bin file you provided this morning.  I tried it on 2 separate cards (a 1gb and a 8gb).  Use the play button to turn on the camera, then menu, then firmware update, then shortcut key to alt mode, then menu, then to misc stuff.  There is still nothing showing up after (also checked before in listing) "remote parameters". 

I did check the build for both cards and both show chkd 0.9.9-889, May 1, 100c.

Not to worry...I can live without the disable jogwheel feature...or maybe when the final release comes out, I can check it again.  If you want me to continue to test files or provide you with debug info, let me know. 

Again, thanks for the great work.

Aaah, i think now i know the reason of your problem. Your are using the wrong boot methode for the test build. The diskboot.bin files are not started via "firmware update". You must have a old ps.fi2 file on your card, with a "normal" build. So you are still starting your old build. For diskboot.bin, you have to use a bootable sd-card.

I did download the latest diskboot.bin with the jog wheel fix and it works fine.

But i have noticed that the front ring is also blocked if jogdial blocked?

Is this a bug or a canon-feature?

Yup...that was it...I tested and was able to see the wheel setups IF I didn't do the "firmware update".  As long as I do not update firmware it works, if I update the firmware, it does not show the jog wheel settings. 

Thanks Again. 
I mentioned I had both a 1gb and 8gb cards.  I tested the jog wheel setting with the 1 gb card.  I will now try the 8gb (no partitions) and see if I can make it work.  But from what you are saying, because I can not "boot" the 8gb, I will not be able to make the 8gb card take the new bin file.

Its both of them. ;)
The CHDK way to disable the Jogdial, is to halt the canon Jogdial task.
The front ring is also a jogdial, at least it is handeld by the same (now halted) jogdial task.
Thats the reason why it is not working. Currently i dont know a solution to handle both of them seperate.

Please try the attached PS.FI2 100c build. This should work via firmware update booting method.

That did the trick.  I am now able to "firmware update" with my 8gb card and it runs the latest build of chdk with the jogwheel settings.   And that is the way I prefer to run the program anyway...when/if I need to run chdk, I just make sure the sd card is locked, then play and do the firmware update.  When I do not need to run chdk, I can just unlock the card and have the camera work as normal.  So all is great!

Thanks Again ERR99
