^^ yup looks like the boot flag is still set and your card with ML on it won't work, but the camera's fine.

The new EOS-M Firmware is now out ! (

Can someone(?) confirm if there'll be any risk installing this new Canon FW directly onto a camera that has ML on it? Do I need to uninstall ML first, or will the new firmware wipe it out (safely) during the upgrade?


Flash went OK but you'll need to nuke your card that has ML on it (I used a 2nd blank card).

It's not working for me. I'm using a Sandisk Ultra 64GB..

Yep your first firmware flash must be done on a <=32gb card in order to set the flag inside the camera. After that's done you can use any sized card (e.g 64gb) provided you've also prepared that card using the tool (forgot name). But yeh... need to beg/borrow/steal a smaller card for the first flash.
Looking pretty damn good so far! *thumbs up*

Need some way to disable the ML info from top/bottom of LV screen but still have the other overlays (peaking/zebra/etc) showing (unless I'm missing something obvious?) as it (visually) interferes with canon's on-screen buttons which you need to access a reasonable amount.

2-finger press to bring up ML menu isn't too bad but it does move the af-point (of course). Minor issue. Shame about the movie-record button!

Screen-tap to access the ML sub-menus works well.

Hi coutts thanks for your work so far!

Trying to install Alpha1, using win7 (64bit):

1) After unzipping the .zip file, the "__MACOSX" and "ML" folders are in green font when displayed in explorer, indicating the folder and contents are encrypted. Not sure what's going on there, but OK..

2) When copying the files over to card (using laptop's built-in card reader and a 64GB SDXC card), explorer warns it can't keep the files encrypted, do I want to decrypt (yes). Files copy over successfully after that - the EOSM106.fir (37KB) and autoexec.bin (278KB) are in root folder.

3) When attempting to flash the fw I get "Firmware update program" "Update file cannot be found. Please check the memory card and reload the battery and try again." The power LED continually flashes until I press the power button and it stops blinking (but error message keeps showing). Have to yank the battery to turn it off.

(Camera works fine afterwards but ML's not installed).

Will try and find another (SD) card and see if same issue..

"Download removed for now, installer is NOT SAFE, bricking possible. Stay tuned for updates." - OK I'll just leave that alone for a while....

Pinch-to-zoom is already enabled in playback mode (actually, it seems to be the only way to zoom in on the photo - I find it a little irritating and would definitely like to be able to double-tap the screen to 100% zoom). I don't think I've found pinch being used anywhere else. You could possibly use it to perform the 5x or 10x zoom, but you'd have difficulty doing it without stuffing up your current af-point.

The android app ( does not work for the eos-m (I presume it uses the tethering API).

Changing Av/Tv/ISO/exposure-comp/af-point using touch-only is very easy already. Altering the audio-recording level is a bit finnicky (or is this something the video guys set once and never really touch again?) and also it would be nice to "touch to focus" (like on a smartphone) - at the moment it's either "touch to set af point" (you then need to hit the shutter to af of course) or "touch to focus and take a photo" - nothing in-between.

Would be nice to have a way to lock/unlock the af-point to its current position as it's very very easy to touch the screen accidentally and muck up your selected point. A good option here would be if the video-record button could toggle it.... that button is currently unused in green-box or stills mode.
