Host USB working

With the supplied Nokia micro-USB cable and a female-to-female USB-A adapter it is possible to attach USB devices to the N810. usbcontrol allows to switch the USB controller to host mode, however, the kernel needs also to be fixed (requiring a kernel recompile which is easy, see here and here).

Some devices, such as the MA-620 Infrared Adapter (0x0df7:0x0620) just seem to suck too much power and the N810 collapses (I had to remove the battery to get it working again).

CHDK firmware

Setting up the toolchain (arm-elf) and compiling CHDK is rather straightforward. Then just put the binaries on the SD card and boot the new firmware!

The firmware sports a tiny basic interpreter, eg. for bracketing and raw file mode. I have yet to find software for linux to support HDR

New camera: Canon IXUS 70

I got a new camera: Canon IXUS 70; one of the reasons was the CHDK project; an open-source effort to extend the firmware of DiGIC II and III based cameras.

The new camera is really tiny but seems a bit fragile, at least compared to my previous Canon IXUS v2.
