K and not C, you're right. I meant the camera just has a black screen and doesn't start at all. I put the correct DISKBOOT.BIN in place but it soesn't work.

Since I am not so unskilled to be unable to do what you say (I mean swap DISCBOOT.BIN) , and my camera still doesn't react,  (it's so frustrating...I really want manual override!), I'm afraid I have to wait for at least a 100e alpha...
So, please, someone could make it as soon as possible?
So here's the DISKBOOT.BIN file from earlier in this thread integrated with the other necessary CHDK file.  Although frankly,  you do not need those files to boot CHDK - you should see the text box from the logo at startup even without them.

It would be interesting to see if anyone has used that file and succeeded in booting the 1.00e firmware.

Frankly no, I am trying to boot with "play" button + fw upgrade, maybe it is a reason sufficient to give problems?

You cannot use the "firmware update" method if you don't have the correct .FI2 file for your cameras firmware.

PS.FI2 and DISKBOOT.BIN are both complete copies of CHDK, encoded in different ways. Since you mentioned before that there is no PS.FI2 for your specific firmware, then you need to make the card bootable outside of the camera in order to load the DISKBOOT.BIN
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thank you all so much!

In bootable mode, it works!

Now it's time to test it all...

So I have 100e as well and am trying to make it work but it won't boot (I have to remove the battery every time). I used EOScard1.2 to make the card bootable for CHDK. I am using fat32 and the card is 32 gigs. Is the problem the size of the card?

Thanks for any help.

Oh nevermind, I have 100a. Anyone have a DISKBOOT.BIN that will work with this?

Should we try to get my code for 100e into the repository, so anybody can build it using the CHDK-Shell?

Or is there anything we need to get done before that can happen?
I don't know the procedure for doing that, or who can do it.

Zip up the 100e sub directory and post it somewhere ( eg box.com) and I'll do a patch file for you if you like ?

Here is the 100e directory
The 7z-file is so small I can attach it here directly
