The Powershot IXUS160 (ELPH160 in North America) was released on Jan 2015


During development of this port, one camera suffered an unrecoverable hardware failure apparently connected to CHDK. Another camera suffered a similar failure but was eventually recovered. See discussion starting at this post for details. Several possible causes were identified and fixed, but the actual cause has not been conclusively identified. Use of CHDK is always at your own risk.


Alpha builds for cameras with 100a and 100b firmware are available from the Downloads page
