Installing CHDK on SX1 IS

Hello!

Please help me to install chdk on my SX1 IS. In a wiki a read that sx1 doesn't support manually loading. I followed the instructions, and make next steps:
1) format my SD card (2Gb) with FAT
2) copy DISKBOOT.BIN, vers.req and CHDK folder to the card.
After inserting card in SX1 I didn't see any changes. When I try to lock (write-protect) card - my SX1 just says: "Card is locked", and nothing about CHDK.
Additionally, I tried format SD card using HP USB Disk Storage format tool (tried to make bootable drive).
Maybe problem in using Micro-SD with adaptor?
What I must exactly do, to install CHDK to SX1? Please help!

Hello & welcome, Sergio !

1) format my SD card (2Gb) with FAT
2) copy DISKBOOT.BIN, vers.req and CHDK folder to the card.
After inserting card in SX1 I didn't see any changes. When I try to lock (write-protect) card - my SX1 just says: "Card is locked", and nothing about CHDK.
The SD card must also be "CHDK bootable" ("BOOTDISK" at offset 40h on the mbr);
just follow the steps from the installation guide: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK/Installing_with_Cardtricks

Thank you!
I successfully installed CHDK with "Card tricks". And already take some pictures with long exposure time. Awesome. This was the main thing, that I wanted.
What else in CHDK can be useful to take cool-looking pictures?
PS: sorry for my English ;)

the sx1 is doesn't have a shortcut button, neither does it have a face button, how do you activate CHDK?

The shortcut ('Alt') button on the SX1 is the "print" button at the top left on the back.

The simplest way to install CHDK is to use my STICK app - see http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/stick/stick.html
