SX30IS version "GM1.00L" of the firmware.
- unable to make the "make card bootable" work. I can reload the firmware each time, but that's quite a pain. The process as described in the readme and instructions seems to work, but the result is base software any time I power the camera off and back on.
- The instructions state to go through the "make card bootable" process, then pull the card out and lock it for write. When I open the door to remove the card, the camera powers off. When I set the card to write-protect, reinsert it, power the camera back up, it basically wont do squat except display that the card is write protected.
Help with these two issues would be appreciated.
Constructive criticism: The instructions in the readme are wrong. It states:
- If you would like to have CHDK auto-load every time you power on
your camera, then go into CHDK's menu system. (Press "Shortcut" to enter <ALT>
mode, then your "Menu" button to enter CHDK's menus.) Scroll to the bottom
of the main CHDK menu to the "Debug Parameters" option.
- Enter the "Debug" menu and scroll to "Make Card Bootable...". Press your "Set" button.
The "make card bootable is not under "debug parameters" but under miscellaneous.
