Hi there,

A short question from a newbie... Can anyone tell me if CHDK is available for the IXUS 960IS? I'm considering buying either the 950IS or the 960IS, but while I have found it for the 950, I can't seen to locate it for the 960. Thanks in advance for your help.

Also Hello,

according to here: For Developers - CHDK Wiki and here: Firmware Comparisons - CHDK Wiki

I don't think it is available right now, but buy it and port CHDK for it.
Maybe there is some beta here on the forum, but I don't think so as I didn't here of it.

(If not sure, buy both. :-X)

@tk-germany

I'm not sure if you know this already, but dumping the firmware is only step 1
The hardest part is the porting, especially in case of DryOS camera's.
The specific addresses for hundreds of functions in the firmware need to
be found by comparing the machine code with those of already ported
similar camera's. A lot of trial and error experiments will be necessary.
This means that it is almost impossible if one does not have the specific
camera.
Take a look here: DryOS Development
to see what is involved, and you will see that porting DryOS cams can take
quite a bit of time. I guess it all depends on the amount of people that own
the camera, and on how many of them have the necessary skills and time
to get the job done. And of course, on the camera - the more functions it has
that are unique (as in: not found in any other cam) the more complications.

More interesting reading (Wiki DryOS Porting) DryOS Porting - CHDK Wiki

Also, keep in mind that I myself have never ported a cam, also don't have a DryOS cam,
so most of this post is stuff I learned/heard about on the forum in the last 3 months.
That said I still hope it's of some use to you...

good luck,

wim

I DO own the camera. I would like to pursue the port for the SD950 and in the next couple of weeks I run
into quite a bit of free time. (Summar vacation).

But I would like to work with somebody who has a done a port before. Otherwise it will take
me forever to figure it out.  I am well versed in computers, programming and electronics but not so much
in disassembly and firmware reverse engineering.

Would the developer/porter of a similar DryOS camera please contact me.
