Hi guys! I'm new here and a noob in custom firmwares, so I need some help to flash my Canon SX210IS. First of all which version is the most stable release and where do I download it? And secondly: is there a version history to see what is improved/added in each version ? Thank you very much...

Well,  first of all, CHDK does not "flash" your camera.  It loads temporarily into RAM and dissapears when the power is turned off.

Is there a reason why the SX210 was not integrated in the source code of the Version 1.1 and 1.2?

It was in the 1.0 release but marked ALPHA & "SKIP_AUTOBUILD".    I guess either nobody noticed or nobody did enough testing and reported back on results to justify moving it out of ALPHA status ?

Hmm...

In the old CHDK-DE version (non modular) we had the SX210 integrated in the autobuild system. With this I had a request because not work custom timer bracketing.

Insert '#define CAM_DRIVE_MODE_FROM_TIMER_MODE  1' in camera_platform.h fixed the problem.

I think a little bit cleanup of camera_platform.h (some old no longer necessary entries) and the SX210 is ready for a preliminary ALPHA version.



Hint: We changed our autobuild server to stable branch version 1.1 with DE option and miss the SX210.

Kind of busy doing the A1200 port right now but when I get a free hour I'll make v1.1 & v1.2 patch files.

I've copied the SX210IS 1.00c from release 1.0 to release 1.1 and modified kbd.c so it builds.

It's set as SKIP_AUTOBUILD at the moment; but if you can test it then I'll remove this.

Oh [admin: avoid swearing please] .. was just working on that too.

Did you fix the platform_camera.h stuff (updates attached) ?
