General Chat / Re: Is everyone okay?

Here in Galicia, in the Northwest of Spain, we have been indoors for 20 days without being able to go out except for essential needs, and we will continue to do so until at least the 26th of April. Fortunately the whole family is fine. Take care that this situation is going to be long. Hugs to everyone.

Thank you very much!!
Now ML is running.
My mistake was to interpret the picture button as you said in your post "The Q button on 40D is "picture" button" instead of the trash button.
Now I'll start testing the new features.


Thanks for yor help an interest.

The card I use is a Kingston elite pro 133X 8GB. This card rules perfectly ML in my old 50D.
In the heder's ML  the Q button on 40D is "picture" button, not the trashcan one.
I pressed both, but no one make run ML.
Regards and thanks for your interest with me.

My PC has Windows10

This is what I did step by step

1 Format the card in the camera
2 Run Eos card activating EOS_DEVELOP and BOOTDISK
3 Delete all content from card
4 Copy heder's extracted build to card.
5 After status "solid" the Cam's bootflag is enabled and - after reboot - ML don't  start from bootable card.

@heder "Should I male a Short video and post it later this week, to rule out misunderstandings ?"It would be a great help for me, who don't have much knowledge of informatics.

Thank you, @Walter,
I'm trying to follow your instructions and those of @heder, and the only thing I get is that the bootloader loads, the blue led remains fixed, I remove the battery, I try again to update the FW and again the blue led changes to blink...and I can't get past that loop.

Hi heder,
Thanks for your quick answer.
I used ML on an EOS 50D until two years ago and I currently have it installed on an EOS M and neither had this problem with the boot up.
I will try to install it during the day according to your advice and the ML installation page.
Thanks for your great work to port ML to this old EOS 40D, which will help to give it a new life.

Hi Heder
I've tried to install your ML in the Eos 40D FW 1.1.1.
When doing so the blue LED does what you say, it flashes fast about 20 times, then solid and then slow.
I remove the battery and switch the camera back on and it remains without changing the FW and does not charge the ML.
How can I run it?
What am I doing wrong?

Excuse my poor English.

Thanks for your great effort to run ML in 40D. Regards
Up with de great work!!....Congrats.
Thanks for your great work!!
Thank you A1ex for your information and time. Unfortunately, my knowledge does not allow me to perform the tasks recommended in the posts. I will have to wait until some member can upload an operational version for the 40D  :'(. Greetings
a year ago my 50D eos where I had installed ML crashed and since then I'm using the old 40D, although I miss not being able to enjoy ML. Is there anyone who's managed to get ML running on the 40D? Thank you in advance
Walter and a1ex, Thanks for your time and replay. The camera has a hardware problem and I'm not able to repair it. Fortunatly in Canon mode rules.

Olá, eu som galego e falo galego que como sabedes e irmao do portugues. Fico muito feliz de saber que a comunidade lusofona segue a estar presente no mundo.
Son utente de uma EOS 50D que por desgraza deixou de ser valida para usar ML por problema de hardware, mais sigo o dia a dia deste forum.

I followed the steps you mention  on your post and tried with several different cards. The result is the same for all of them (pic attached), the camera freezes and I have to remove the battery in order to make it work again. Thanks in advance,
A month ago I had a problem with my 50D. The CF card slot had a pin broken an the camera was not shoot down properly. After repair it, I can't upddate the firmware with no one card and differents ML buildings. The screen shows this message:

Firmware update program

Update file cannot be found.
Please check the memory card and reload the battery and try again.

I do this but the mesage is always the same.

Can any one help me?

Thanks in advance.
Thanks for you fast response Walter.

Yes there is a pin broken on the slot card.  >:(
I have a problem with my 50D camera. Yesterday I took a picture without problems. I pulled the card and put another newly formatted on the PC. The camera will not start right away. From there on every time I try to shoot, it indicates ERR CF, format the card, but does not format. I have tried with 5 different cards and in all the same message comes out. The cards in a 40D work perfectly. Without card the camera works without problems. Can you help me? regards
@A1ex: Can You create a FIR for 40D? Thanks in advance.
 mk11174 sais "If alls you need is the fullres-silent-pics version all up to date just use the build I compiled, nothing has changed since the update."

  It works in my 50D. Thanks a lot!
