PowerShot G1 X 1.00E Firmware

Hi

Here is the Canon G1X firmware http://www.frogkick.dk/projects/photo/CANNON_PowerShot_G1_X_1.00E.zip

I've dumped it using the Universal Dumper from http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Scripts/Dumper
The CBDUMPER.LOG file is also in the zipfile.

I hope that somebody will find it useful and port CHDK to the G1X. I am willing to fill the role as alpha/beta tester if somebody is willing to help with the coding part of porting CHDK.

@DryDuck :  Good to see this dump - thanks.  The G1X looks like a great successor to the G12.

In case you have not seen it,  here's a little info on the CHDK porting process :

Nice. That at least confirms that it is in the P&S family, not the DSLR family.

Dump looks fine,  DRYOS version 2.3, release #0049

As always, porting depends on a person who is both a programmer and owns the camera finding the time to do it.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

I will have a look at the porting guides in the wiki. Hopefully I'll figure out how to do a port, even if C is not my language of choice.

I hope that some of the experts can help when I get stuck :o

You've come to the right place - we've walked more than a few people through their first port.

I have the firmware 1.00g, but I cannot dump the firmware...:(
I have prepared the SD with the EOS  tool to write the SCRIPT in boot sector, thn I have created script.req with the "for DC_scriptdisk" text and extend.m with the unversal dumper basic script text from http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Scripts/Dumper
I started the camera in play and record mode, but nothing happens, it just starts normally and no firmware dump.

Did you read and follow this : Canon Basic : Starting the script ?

I need to create a new thread with the 1.00g firmware? or it will be included in CHDK from here?

Thank you for doing that!  Its always a great first step to getting a new camera or firmware version ported.

CHDK forum guru fe50 maintains the firmware dumps on a box.com account.  He will usually pick a new one up in a day or two from anywhere in the forum that its posted.  So your posting is fine - no need to start a new thread.

Having said that,  there is no guarantee that anyone will take the next step with it soon.  Take a look at this for more info :
