@Anibal Marquex

He means it is not ready yet for general use; if you want to try it anyway, read here:

Just receive my camera . I tried with that file    sx20_100f.7z with cards tricks and the operation only put two files on my card the ver file and the bin file.
When i star my camera no power comes , I am obliged to take card and batteries otherwise even with card out , the camera doens t initialaze. The card was protected yes. I was obliged to format the card for the camera work again with no problmes.
What worries me is a friend have a sx10 and the cardtrick instalation puts about five falis and a lot of directories.
Did I have installed incorrectlly?

The numbers indicate the CHDK source version they are based on ...
That means CHDK-sx20-100f-0.9.9-866.zip is the newest and should be the most functional.

If you can not get it to run, why not ask your friend (with the sx10) to prepare the card for you:
Just let him prepare your card the same way as his own (using your friend's sx10 files),
make the card bootable, remove the (sx10) PS.FI2, and then replace the (sx10) DISKBOOT.BIN on the card
with the (sx20) DISKBOOT.BIN from your CHDK-sx20-100f-0.9.9-866.zip. Then lock your card, put it
in your SX20 and start.
You will then have all the 'extra files' you asked about - they are the same for all camera's


hope that helps,

wim

We do that , replacing the bootdisl from sx20 and deleting the file you refer. After mounting the card protected on my camera, doesnt switch on , I have to unload the card , open battery container and close it agai to swich on without problem.
So the problem persists , do you think the card is not good?

do you think the problem could be because I am using a 4 gb card?
