Hello,
I bought the ELPH 110 HS recently. I previously used CHDK on an older Canon to good effect.
This time around I cannot get the ELPH 110 HS to even boot CHDK.
I tried all the various versions of the CHDK firmware. None of them work.
I do not know precisely which Canon firmware I have. I cannot find a menu item for learning that.
However the photo files themselves contain a string indicating firmware 1.01.
Can anyone assist me in getting  CHDK to boot on the camera?

The EXIF says:
IMG:PowerShot ELPH 110 HS JPEG
Firmware Version 1.01

Thanks.

Lots of tips there on finding your firmware version.  Hint : look for the ACID and STICK utilities.

That helped, thanks. It appears the vers files was necessary for the Firmware Update menu item to appear.
Finally I hope I will be able to make real use of this camera.

I don't think that's correct.   You most likely did something else different.  Whatever it is,  keep doing it that way and enjoy.

Hi All,

".....I tried all the various versions of the CHDK firmware. None of them work....."
".....Can anyone assist me in getting  CHDK to boot on the camera?...."

I had a similar problem with my Ixus 125's, [-100e, -101a] with the inital ports.
I used my Ixus 115 to make the SD card bootable then replaced Ixus 115
software with the Ixus 125 software.

But as I haven't  reformated any SD card's recently I am not sure about most recent "125" versions.

Here's a test build for 101a.

Hi reyalp,

many thanks for providing this test build. Unfortunately I have been not able to test it before today but  I can confirm the border on the left has disappeared. Thanks a lot!

The resolution of the image has been increased from 4624x3460 to 4680x3498 and it shows in all directions now more image conent then the related JPEG image. Nice.

Thanks and Regards,
Daniel

Thanks for confirming. The change will be included in autobuild 3055 and later.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Hi,

I'm new here. I own a IXUS 125 HS and mainly want to get around the 10mins recording limit, someone in this thread did mention its doable. 

So I just have some basic questions, excuse my lack of knowledge. 

How high is the risk of bricking my camera? if having put a CHDK firewire on my sd-card and then have it write protected. If the firmware doesn't work or locks up the camera, will wiping the sd-card set the camera back to its normal settings? or is there still a risk of bricking the camera?

I have got as far as downloading and running Acid to determine firmware version and selected Download Stable Full Version, however looking in the directory path (C:\Windows\system32\) for the download I cannot find the Chdk folder which is indicated in the extracting process after downloading the correct firmware for my camera.
I was hoping to find a readme file telling me what features I can expect with the custom firmware.

I have downloaded Wicks to help install it on my SD card but haven't gone that far yet because I want to make sure I am doing it correctly and worrying about bricking my camera in the process.  Is there many different versions of firmware with scripts? or will all of them have the same basic features in terms of unlocking hidden features or making tweaks, including removing the 10 min recording time limit on my camera- which is the main feature one I want.

Its seems a straight forward process, using the utility programs I mentioned, but reluctant to risk stuffing up my camera. On the other hand I really want to remove this stupid 10 minute limit on recording.

Thanks for any advice,

Daza99

Its not actually firmware - its never permanently installed in NVRAM.  CHDK runs only in regular RAM and goes away each time the power is removed.

There is a wealth of CHDK knowledge here :  http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK  including a list of features.

As I said,  this is not firmware.  The CHDK program is the same for every camera. Additional features can be implemented with user written scripts,  and there are hundreds of them available in various places.

The part at the top points to a utility called STICK, which might be better for your purposes.

There is risk in using CHDK - just not a very big one.  You risk dropping your camera each time you pick it up. Does that stop you?


Update : took  a quick look at the platform_camera.h file for the ixus125 and it shows that CAM_CHDK_HAS_EXT_VIDEO_TIME is not enabled.  So it appears CHDK for your camera does not support extended video time.   If you are willing to test,  you might find someone here to help you with that.

@Daza99
If you are willing to test, and report the results, I can sent you a patched version with CAM_CHDK_HAS_EXT_VIDEO_TIME support, please tell me the fw version of your camera.

Hi all,

I now have a Ixus 125-100d, an ebay Cheapie, it appears to me to have some porting problems , probably due to incomplete camera CHDK porting and/or camera testing.

EDIT #1:-
Now working see here ... http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6231.msg106509#msg106509

My Ixus 125-100e and Ixus 125-101a seem to work very well but they also have some problems.

Edit #2:- http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=6231.0;attach=9185

More complete details and some logs soon.

Edit #3:-

In "Play" there is a problem with 1 to 1 Aspect ratio, may be due to Ixus 115/125 cameras :-
see attached Ixus 125 ....... 125-101a_Play_&_Aspect 1-1
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=6231.0;attach=9185

Ixus 125-100e works Ok

H-H
