CHDK now available for Canon PowerShot A3100

Previously, I posted that there is no CHDK firmware hack for the Canon PowerShot A3100IS. However, thanks to a comment on my post, I checked out the site's recent news and saw that there is now a firmware version as of yesterday that works on the A3100 and A3100IS.

If you're not familiar with CHDK (join the club) it appears to be a way to unlock features on Canon point-and-shoot cameras to do things like increase the max exposure time, add features like ISO bracketing, and even a motion sensor mode fast enough to capture lightning photos.

The firmware loads onto your camera's memory card, so there is no permanent change to your device. It sounds fairly safe, and I plan to try it out when I get some free time to really read it over.
