Simple Tool for Installing CHDK (STICK)
for Windows, OSX and Linux (Ubuntu)
The 'Build not found' Page
If STICK cannot locate a CHDK build for your camera, the screen will look like this.
There are two possible reasons why a build may not be found:
- the photo you dropped does not have the necessary firmware information (because the photo has been extensively edited - cropped, resized, or had colours or contrast altered)
- CHDK has not been ported to your camera yet
STICK should tell you which of these possibilities has occurred (in this case it's both - the Ixus 500 is too old to support CHDK and the photos has been edited so the firmware information is no longer present.
If the problem is the photo, find another (unmodified) photo taken with the camera and drop that.
