Thank You.
Now, dump ROM is enabled in menu ML.
After pressing SET only black screen. Screen on top camera normal working. It is possible now take the picture. Nothing written to the card.

Hello,

My 5dmkII who had been long running with ML without probs, just froze suddenly.
I have placed the autoexec file (portable display test) on the card ; and got a long log. Don;t understand any of it and does not look like I can attach it to my post (can I ?)
Basically there was an almost non visible dark screen with dark small grey lines horizontal. And when I turn the camera off and on again, it did not repeat the display.
Then I placed the second autoexec file (LED blink test) ; and there was no blink happening.

Assuming I needed to remove the original ML Autoexec manually from the card : is that right ?

Any advice would be greatly greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance
Chakawa

Did you remove/insert battery before/after running tests?

Thanks for your reply.
Yes I did.

Also, I just replaced the battery with a new one and all what's happening is it is blinking red (kind of same as it does normally) but nothing showing up on LCD and camera does not boot.

Also pls note that the camera does not do anything (not even blinking) without any CF card inserted (with new battery).

What next step should I take ? Should I re-install ML completely ?

Thanks in advance
Chakawa

After having my camera lock up yesterday when I tried to insert a new CF card after receiving a prompt that the one I was using was full, I have been trying everything to get my 5DII to recognize my CF cards. I have tried erasing them using my Mac since I can't get the camera to format them or even recognize them.
After hours of messing with it, I finally got a card that I had reformatted as MS-DOS FAT, and then loaded the auto exec.bin file and the latest ML folder from the nightly builds, along with the DCIM and MISC folders, to do something other than lock up. I got a Magic Lantern Rescue screen upon startup.  I have tried to drag and drop, or upload the photo I took, but can't get either to work, so I will type out what was on the screen:

Magic Lantern Rescue
------------------------------------
- Model ID: 0x218 5D2
- Camera model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II
- Firmware version: 2.1.2 / 6.9.8 A1(00)
- IMG naming: 100EOS5D/IMG_0000.JPG
- User PS:      Cinestyle
- Boot flag: FIR=0 BOOT=-1 RAM=-1
- ROMBASEADDR: 0xFF010000
- ROMBASEADDR: 0xFF810000
- DONE!

You may now remove the battery.
