So just wondering, is it possible to flash the saved ROMs from when ML was installed.  Would that even be a possible solution?

I assume that they get saved, and it's advised to keep them safe for a reason.

I'm not sure what data is actually in them, like shotting settings etc, but I know the checksum is different from them to the ones that the Rom Dumper was able to extract.

Thanks anyway.

I guess I'll just head to eBay, my tail between my legs lol.

In the meantime, if alex does manage to get me up and running again, then at least I'll have a spare body to astro mod.

I guess one has to search for the bright side of things.

Still no luck.

Insert card, close card door, insert battery and close door, LED flashes once, then still nothing, no LCD, no top screen, no viewfinder, no response still.

What's the next item to tick off the list?

Ill have to head to the store in the morning and see if I can find a suitable card.  I do have to ROM available from the card that was in the camera at the time of it freezing.  I'm not sure if that would be useful, and I also made sure to keep the original ROM from when I installed ML in the first place.

So am I assuming that the message about the MBR is related to that of the memory card?  And not the camera, so there MAY be hope for this thing still.

In the mean time, I partitioned one of the cards to 2GB, then formatted it FAT32, and then tried the ROM dumper again, and it worked, so I also have the 2 dumps from that available to help debug.

Thanks for taking the time to help

Hi, seems i'm in need of some help/advice.

I had ML working on a EOS 60D, and had been working fine.  I was getting ready to set up for a night of imaging, and was making sure that my capture software was working, and after a couple of test exposures in bulb mode, the camera seemed to be frozen.  I removed the battery, then reinserted it, but nothing, I tried without the memory card, i tried with a fresh card, I just get nothing.

I've followed the advice of trying all the mode dial settings, with/without lenses, tried different batteries, none of it works.  If i place the card with ML in, the LED blinks, but that is it.  I tried the Display test from the debug tools, and that shows some information on the screen, I tried the ROM dumper, but that says that it was unable to mount the partition, The format of the MBR was unrecognised.

What do I need to do now?

I'm freaking out, I only just bought this camera.
