My camera is SX20 ver 102b

Thanks for the answer.
On the FAQ i see that i need to "Copy the folder CHDK and all its contents into the root folder"

the zip file only contain diskboot.bin, is it O.K ?
I don't need this folder also ? where i can find this folder for my camera ?

This folder contains fonts and some other stuff - it is common for all cameras.
Download full package available for any camera and get CHDK folder from there.
Get DISKBOOT.BIN beta version for your camera from the link above.

Thanks for the help.

I stuck now, I have copy the bootdisk and the CHDK folder to my sd card withe the tow method,
Once directly by copy to the root of the card  and the second time by using CardTricks144.

Attached is the content of my SD card.

I remove the lock on my card, put the card in the camera and turned it on on playback mode,
On the menu the last item is "Transition" I don't see "Prim update".

What I am doing wrong ? I don't need PS.FIR or PS.FI2 files in my card also ?

ATM the SX20 beta only supports the autostart loading method, with the diskboot.bin file.
Use a SD card <= 4GB, format it with FAT16, make it CHDK-bootable and lock the card; this can all be done with Cardtricks.

The manual loading method needs a ps.fi2 file to show up the "Firmware Update" menu item; since the SX20 port is still in beta, this is not supported yet, there's no ps.fi2 file.

If I remember I have tried this also but the camera didn't start at all, I have waited more then few seconds.
I will try it again tomorrow evening I hope it will work, any way I will report if it's o.k or not.

is there a date for the release (not beta) for  the SX20 ? Maybe I wait for it

Thank you all, I have manage to load CHDK.

I think that the camera is working very slow but maybe it's because I change somthing in the menu.
 
I will read the Manuel and continue from here.

Have you figured out what is causing the slowness after the new firmware installed?
sx20is 1.02d
