Friends, this is the camera with great potential, and I think all of its owners very sorry that it does not have a Magic Lantern :'(. It is necessary to somehow speed up the processes firmware release. Maybe there is a reason to raise money for the developer? Who agrees?

I am working on this. If you know some ASM, some C, linux, and want to help out, message me and I'll get you up to speed so we can get ML on this device soon.

FYI, octacorn also made some progress on 750D (and DIGIC 6 in general), so you may want to get in touch with us on IRC.

Hi, I got a 700D, 750D and a 760D, plus some very basic knowledge of programming in machine code, ASM, C++, and misc other languages. (My main skills are not embedded software but mainstream languages like Java, C#, JavaScript, asp, HTML, asp.net, SQL which I guess will be useless here?).

I also has some experience with building or modifying hardware/electronics, for instance I've built my own timelapse dolly with integrated circuits controlling my cameras.

I've been using Magic Lantern on an earlier 500D and currently on my 700D and love the extra functionality.

If you need testers, I would be able to help :-)

Hi, I got a 700D, 750D and a 760D, plus some very basic knowledge of programming...

You can get started by running through the process of doing a software update on your 700D. I already did it and have it working on 1.1.5 so here is your chance at testing your skills. Do it like a study guide, no peeking at the answers until you figure it out.

I've been meaning to put up a tutorial on doing a simple firmware update and have some time this week, keep checking the forum for it.

In the meantime you can do a firmware dump on your cameras. The ROM dumpers are available for download on the bottom of the Magic Lantern Nightly Builds page.

The 700D.114 to 700D.115 update is rather easy but it will give you an introduction to Magic Lantern code. You don't really need any programming skills for this.

The 750D and 760D use the Digic 6 image processor so these are going to be much more challenging. @a1ex mentioned that @octacorn made some progress--can't find that user in the forum but apparently octacorn hangs out on #magiclantern IRC channel.

Good luck!

Confirmed - here's the FIR that actually enables the boot flag:

BOOTF760.FIR

After enabling the boot flag in the camera, you may run:

- the portable display test (copy autoexec.bin and make your card bootable)
- the portable ROM dumper (you may have to format the card to a very small size, or dd this 256MB image - howto)
- anything compiled from the recovery branch (it runs from bootloader context); check Makefile.user.default for options
- the digic6-dumper branch (you will have to modify the code and experiment - it won't boot in its current state)

Feel free to port the stubs from 80D and follow the experiments from there; the puzzle we are trying to solve is identical on all single-digic 6 models.

The portable ROM dumper:
• Copied autoexec.bin to bootable 8GB card.
• For a fraction of a sec the screen turns blue with a few scattered pink pixels / fully blue / two shades of horizontal magenta bars, then it turns black. The screen is still on, but it doesn't show anything nor write any file to card.

Hi people

I have looked into ML a lot and would love to offer my support on this project I trained as an engineer not grate at the 1 and 0's but I am very good at problem-solving and following a trail so if I can help I am more than willing to chip in.
