I think the project is closed, right? It's almost over a year without any progress. :( I'd be glad to help but didn't find any tutorial. :(

See the FAQ entry waterwingz posted above. Ports are done by people who have the camera.

Porting is not something that can be done by just following a tutorial. If you are a programmer, see here http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Adding_support_for_a_new_camera
Don't forget what the H stands for.

I'm working on a port for the A3100 IS fw 100d.
NOT working: video (not ported yet), leds
Somewhat working: the readability of chdk's menu
Working: overrides, raw (at least DNG), lua scripts
ALT button is Disp
As soon as i have time i'll upload the sources, available now are a compiled package
<link removed, new version in thread>
and the firmware dump

Just being able to boot is a big first step.  Sounds like you are way beyond that.

There have been ports "lost" in the past due to hard drive failures or porters moving on to other things.  Please post what you have as you go ?

I can indeed post what i've got;
<link removed, new version in thread> (src)
But i don't have/don't want/never used (and lost a lot by not using) any kind of version managment software (svn, or even diff), so
- i'm depending on others to convert the files to a usable/includable/prepared form
- i won't take advantage of said others by posting updates every 5 minutes ;)

I've updated the package in the link above to a version with video. The 'release notes' are

****************************************

Camera depending notes:

- pre-Alpha version
- video compression/quality settings do not appear to have any effect
- optical zoom in video past optical zoom limit results in not being able to zoom back to 1x
- set_led() not implemented/checked
- dual partition boot routines for cards >4GB included but not tested
- anything that i have not yet checked, and that is a lot!

+ Raw works, including DNG, Dark frame substraction enable/disable
+ Overrides work (camera does something with the settings that is not entirely unexpected from the chosen overrides ;) )
+ Extra long exposures >64s work
+ scripting (lua) seems to work

This built is based on the port for the A3000 (boot, capt_seq, loader) and the port of the A490 (movie_rec, keyboard routines)

File looks good - making a patch file for submission to the svn will only take a few seconds when you are ready.
