Dumping Powershot SX150 IS (newest model). Some canonbasic changes?

I try to dump newest Powershot SX150 IS model. And there is some unpleasant problems. I try to use Canon Basic/Scripts/Dumper I successfully prepared card and it is working on SX130 camera. So - I'm sure that it is ok. But on SX150 script doesn't starts. No messeges and dump file.
I check different colors for messeges and log them to file to be sure that it is not invisible on LCD - no result. So it seems that on this camera canon may change some parameters for script running. For example:
- change start button combination (not Func/Set to start)?
- change script-file or script-card requirements?
I prefer do not think about worst cases :) So - what you can advise me to try? I think it better to understand it cause this may be regard for all new cameras.

On the IXUS 310 the script is started by pressing the zoom lever to the left (after starting the camera in playback mode with the rear button).

Might be worth trying different button combinations to see if anything triggers the script.

You are probably going to have to wait for somebody who owns that camera to volunteer.  Unless you have some software skills and would like to try the port yourself.  In which case,  you can get help here and on the IRC channel as you need it.
