See replies #1276 and #1277.
I'm not sure if this suggestion was for my issue, but this is not the shutter bug problem. Also, I use the 22mm and a Tokina 12mm as my lenses. I can take photos in MF, just the half press AF is not working, nor is the scroll wheel, side buttons inside it, and the enter button in the center. Inside ML, I can't do anything, since I'm stuck in the white balance icon, and can't swipe out of it. I will try uninstalling tonight, but wanted to see if this issue had popped up before. It seems like I am stuck in MF, and with the scroll wheel locked out. Just no idea how I got there, or how to get out either.

Is it working without ML? Just pull out the card and see if it is working properly. Maybe your ML settings are corrupted? Delete the ML/SETTINGS folder from your SD card and try it again. I've had situations where my Canon settings were the problem, you can try resetting those too.

Yes, even without a card my scroll wheel and the buttons on it are unresponsive. Clearing settings didn't do anything. Maybe I'll try updating the firmware to 2.03? Can I use ML with that version of firmware?

There is an experimental 2.0.3 version, but it's better to stay on 2.0.2.

Say that resetting CANON settings did not help?

Sounds more like a hardware issue.

Yes, resetting did not fix the problem. That's why I asked about the 2.0.3 upgrade. Can I upgrade, but revert to 2.0.2 if the upgrade fixes the problem? Of course, it could be a hardware issue?

I was just typing that thought as you posted.
Is there any way to check (diagnostic)? Or is that repair shop territory?

I suggest to wait for a1ex's opinion on that before going to upgrade/downgrade firmware.
Do you have backups of ROM0.BIN and ROM1.BIN?

It's possible to build some diagnostic code (based on some old Linux experiments), but it takes a while, and I won't get a contiguous chunk of time to experiment with it until weekend (and possibly not even then).

Upgrading the firmware is unlikely to help, but shouldn't hurt.

If you can compile ML, start from the dm-spy-experiments branch, comment out LOG_INTERRUPTS, and you may also have to leave just mpu_send / mpu_recv (as LiveView is very verbose). If you know how to start the camera without LiveView (maybe by starting directly in Canon menu, or in play mode), try that, as these modes are way less verbose. Then try the affected buttons in these modes, to see what events you get. Button codes are mpu_recv(06 05 06 ...).

Also related: anyone else who can compile is welcome to get some logs for troubleshooting the menu timeout issue.

Thanks, a1ex. I haven't tried to compile, but will take a look later when I have time.
Since the problem still exists without an sd card in camera, is this pointing toward a hardware failure?
And if I do the firmware upgrade, can I revert to the firmware that is more stable with ML?

That's the point of these diagnostic tools - to find out what's going on. In particular, the bootloader test will show the raw GUI events, not altered by a possibly misconfigured main firmware.

The dm-spy logs should also be pretty good in this case. There is a precompiled build here (the latest one has LOG_INTERRUPTS disabled, but it might still be too verbose - try to start the camera without entering LiveView; even a few LiveView frames will fill the buffer very quickly). That's why it's best if you can compile - you'll have to fiddle with the logging code to get useful info (here, you may want to silence LiveView messages, for example).

So how about doing a little upgrade on the EOSM? Posted a pull request to test out the latest Canon firmware on the bleeding edge crop_rec_4k branch.

https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/pull-requests/879/crop-rec-4k-eosm203/diff

Test build available in my Bitbucket downloads page:

Hello, i am new so maybe mine is a stupid question. I've installed latest ML firmware on my EOS M. Everything's gone fine, no shutter bug. The only thing is that while i am in the option view i see a red symbol flashing in the right low corner of the screen. Can't understand what is it.
Hope you can help me.

Thank you
