Hi Phil, great initiative of you doing this port!

I tried the alpha 3 and 4 but the camera freezes when doing manual upgrade.
I'm not sure if I have firmware 1.00a since I don't know how to display the firmware with the touchscreen-controls, do you know how I do that? Do you know if there exist other firmware versions?

Regards
Kpax

Format an SD card so it has nothing on it.
Create an empty file on the SD card called vers.req (make sure this is the file name, if you are using Windows you may need to enable file extensions to be shown so you don't create vers.req.txt instead).
Put the card in the camera, hold the zoom lever to the left (zoom out) and start the camera with the rear playback button.
After the camera has started, release the zoom lever and then press it left again - this should now display the camera info.

Ok, looks like I have a newer version: 1.01a

Are you interested in having a dump of that firmware? (I don't have any experience in extracting it from the camera so in that case I need some guidelines)

Edited the instructions

This worked for me:
- download sdminst from http://stereo.jpn.org/eng/sdm/file/common_files.zip
- format the card again and then run the sdminst.exe program
- click on the 'Set Script Flag' and then close sdminst.exe
- copy the attached 'extend.m' and 'script.req' files to the card.
- start in record mode and take a picture (this will help make the script text readable),
- turn off the camera
- start the camera in playback mode (with the button on the back).
- after the camera has started press the zoom lever to the left (zoom out), the script will display a few messages in the top left corner, wait until it has displayed the word 'done'

The card should now have the PRIMARY.BIN file on it.

Yeah, now I succeeded, felt a bit dumb earlier when I failed...

Where did you said I should upload the dump?

If you have signed up to any file hosting site then upload there and post the link.
If you're not already using one then box.net (http://box.net/) is free and easy to use.
(Zip the file to reduce the size as well).

Great!

Difference between the 1.01a and 1.00a firmware does not look too great.

Attached is an initial test version to see if it at least boots CHDK.
All being well you should see the CHDK logo and the camera will start up and work normally (it will start up in playback mode, unless you hold the power button for about 2 seconds).

Most functionality is disabled, including the CHDK touch screen interface so you won't be able to do anything much in CHDK.
