    Thanks for your reply, but I'm so amateur and my English is too bad. I don't know what is the "SD Card Lock" booting only? How to active that mode? And how to start CHDK mode? I'm using 4Gb SD Card at Fat32, should I format it to Fat16?
    Again,  you really should take a look at the explanation about SD card booting that I posted the link for.  I will not simply retype that information here :  http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Bootable_SD_card

    To answer your question,  you should format your 4G card as FAT16.  You do not need to create two partitions as suggested by  altero unless your card is bigger than 4G ( i.e. 8G, 16G etc ).   And you can use the SDMinst.exe or CardTricks.exe from Windows - I prefer SDMinst.exe.  The instructions are also availabel at the link I reposted here.

    Update : There is a lot to learn about CHDK.  You can ask questions here on the forum,  but it might help you ask better questions that will get you good answers  if you can read some of these guides - google translate might help ?

    How many bad pixels do you have?

    Would you please be so kind to post your numbers?
    My count is 8400, and I would like to have a comparison. Thanks.
    On my first try, without knowing what to do, I got about 3000.
    Then, I disabled the flash and put the camera on a stable surface, and I got 10105 bad pixels. Might look a lot, but it really means about 0,067%.

    Beta3 : Fully Functional CHDK for the Canon G10

    The G10 beta test team has finished testing beta release 3 of CHDK for the G10. There are links to the downloads in the first post of this thread at :

     Beta 3 Download Post

    This release has full CHDK functionality except where noted below.

    Notes for this third release :

    1) CHDK RAW & DNG formats are fully supported.  But if you have Canon RAW mode enable,  CHDK will disable its RAW & DNG formats. Also, before you post here that you cannot open the CHDK RAW files,  please read this : Wiki page about CHDK Raw and this Forum Thread about CHDK RAW

    2) Motion detect scripts will work but fast motion detection is not yet enabled.

    3) A list of know bugs can be found here : G10 CHDK Beta Test Bug List

    4) This beta version only supports the "SD card lock" boot method.  The "firmware update" method is not available. If you are new to CHDK,  please read this wiki posting about preparing your SD card : http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Bootable_SD_card

    Thank you to all the testers who tried the first three releases and reported back.  Particular thanks to knonaka, altero, JK4U, RayC, olf, Iormangund, lightfusegetaway and especially Ian for your detailed beta test reports.

    amazing work waterwingz, truly appreciate your hard work.. and commitment to the g10! took a little while for me to work out you need to be out of <alt> mode in order for settings to take effect.. but that just meant reading the manual! (page 6!) i knew it would be something stupid and didn't dare ask..
    now its up and running i'm happy to report all is working perfectly as expected..
    thanks again.. you rock!

    Thanks so much for the port! I'll play a bit with it and if I find anything that is not on the buglist, it will be reported.
