This guide will help you install and update your Canon EOS 600D/Rebel T3i to the lastest Magic Lantern Nightly builds.
[size=8pt][color=red]Warning! Magic Lantern is not approved nor endorsed by Canon in any way, and using it will probably void your warranty. We are not responsible for any damages to your camera.[/color][/size]

[u][size=10pt]Before you start:[/size][/u]
- Make sure your battery is fully charged.
- Remove unnecessary accessories (battery grip/flash/etc).
- Have a sd card reader or laptop with integrated sd card reader.
- Use a sd card of 32GB or smaller for first install.
- Understand that you may lose your warranty and brick your camera.

[u][size=10pt]Updating Canon firmware:[/size][/u]
- Make sure you are running Canon firmware v1.0.2 before you install ML, if you are you may skip this step.
- If not, download it [url=]here[/url].
- Follow included instructions and update your camera.

[u][size=10pt]Magic Lantern Install:[/size][/u]
- Download the last nightly version [url=]here[/url]
- Format your SD card in camera first, then put it in your SD card reader connected to your PC.
- Unzip 'ML' directory, 'autoexec.bin' and 'ml-setup.fir' from the downloaded ZIP file onto your sd card.
- Put your sd card in your camera, switch camera to M-mode and power it up.
- Launch firmware update and install ML.
- After the green confirmation screen, turn off your camera.
- Power your camera back up and enjoy Magic Lantern!

[u][size=10pt]Updating Magic Lantern with new build in the future (on camera and sd card with ML installed):[/size][/u]
- When new nightly is available (see [url=]here[/url] for last build), download it onto your PC.
- Put your sd card (running the old build) into your PC and delete (NO format!) the 'ML' directory and 'autoexec.bin' file.
- Extract the content of the zip from the new build onto your sd card.
- Repeat this process for all sd card with old ML builds you want to update.

[u][size=10pt]Uninstalling Magic Lantern from SD card:[/size][/u]
- You cannot simply delete the files from the sd card to uninstall ML from it (as the boot flag will remain set).
- Format the SD card in the camera (select this option: Format card, remove Magic Lantern).

[u][size=10pt]Uninstalling Magic Lantern from camera:[/size][/u]
- You cannot simply reinstall the canon firmware to remove ML.
- With a ML sd card, launch the Firmware Update process and follow the instructions on-screen to uninstall ML.

[u][size=10pt]Boot without loading Magic Lantern:[/size][/u]
- If you want to boot your camera without ML, all you have to do is hold down the "SET" button while switching your camera "ON".
