This might help:

Special note on to use EOScard Utility:

This is the way to set the flag on the card:

I think the question was how to tell if the camera firmware had been set to boot from the card. That you can only tell from the blue light.
0n the 5Dc the camera bootflag is a toggle, hence my suggestion in the post above.

Hey,

I format my CF with a Card reader and all is ok. OUF !!!
But, now, I don't know if bootable_card.fir is intall or not. How do i know that?

Thx.

A solid blue led means that the bootdisk is now enabled. A blinking blue led means the bootdisk is now disabled.

Walta

I understand that, but, If i put my CF on my camera, I can't acces on canon soft. So, for me , i can't do a firmwre update..

Do you have another solution ??

Thx

Sorry, thats how I fixed mine. I took the battery out for 15 min, formatted the CF card in my PC and whe I put the batteries back in it worked OK.

Maybe one of the developers can help you.

From my post above




Do the firmware update again with the file named "5dc.111.card bootable.fir" in the root of the card.
This makes your card not bootable
If you do it again it makes it bootable.
This is a flag that turns the boot portion on and off so every time you run it it turns it either on or off
Next format your CF

ML is gone.

For some reason I'm not able to get ML running on my 5Dc again.

I had it couple of months with any issues but I accidently formatted the card in camera yesterday.

I have tried dozens of times to get it running, but I always just get blinking blue light.

And yes, I have tried this already: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1010.msg16120#msg16120

I am having the same problem. I tried to re-install the version on the first page of this thread and got the blinking blue light. I used both methods (having both .fir files and then having only one). Neither way worked. In the end my camera ended up being locked up - no LCD screen and can't actuate the shutter.

I formatted the card, tried to run the bootflag file a number of times nothing. I was starting to sweat. Finally took all batteries out for 5+ minutes and camera works fine.

In the past I've been able to install Beta 4 that I downloaded earlier (last year) and they worked fine. Maybe theres something different in the one on this thread now. Anyway I'm not attempting an install again until it gets out of BETA.

Got same problem but can't find the response to fix it. Work on a 1 gb sandisk.

Can someone teach me how to get the right tool?

I got a 8gb Lexar professional 400x

Did you see my post?

I followed the directions but I only get the blinking blue light (bootflag disabled) and no response when I click the Trash button. Any suggestions? I went through the process several more (5) times but I only get a blinking blue light. Any help is appreciated.

p.s. If it helps, I'm using a Komputerbay 266x 32GB card.


Look back a few posts. I helped some others that had the same problem.

You have to do the firmware update twice with 2 different .fir files


=====================================

The instructions aren't too clear.

On your first install you need to do the firmware update with the file named "5dc.111.card bootable.fir" in the root of the card
This makes your card bootable
next you have to do the firmware update with the "5dc.111.ML install.fir" file (as well as all the other ones needed for ML)
This installs the ML bootflag.

There is no message that it was successful. The blue light should come on steady - like the instructions say. Then you have to remove the battery to re-boot the camera.

Blinking light means something wasn't installed properly.

I'm not sure what the camera does if you do the upgrade firmware process with 2 fir files in the root of the card.
after copying all the files over there, I made sure there was only 1 fir file each time when I did the firmware upgrade process and it worked for me.

Is anyone noticing how many people view this thread every day - looking for activity or progress?

I don't think anyone's working on it any more. Probably because its an older model - everyone's trying to crack they new sexy models with video etc.

"update file cannot be found..." on my 5D  :( 4GB Transcend CF

Did you copy the files and folders into the root on the card?


37
I formatted CF card in FAT ( instead of FAT32 ) and than it worked... Don`t know if it has to do anything with instal... Tnx anyway.

I formatted in the camera so I wouldn't have to worry about what file format to use.

 

38
Yeah, I just tested beta 4 with a freshly formatted card, updated firmware with all the package on the card and it worked fine.
Did the same thing in your latest beta 4+ or whatever your calling it and it works fine there as well.

What people have to remember is that when its done the firmware upgrade it flashes blue slowly. You have to turn the camera off, take off the battery and then put the battery back and re-start it.

By the way, are you recommending that we take the grip off when installing ML? What about after its installed - put the grip back on?

 


39
first time I've made the one fir at time install like you, then today I've tried to switch off bootflag and format card, then unzipped the package on it (with all 2 fir) and started the firmware update worked for enabling bootflag AND making card bootable.

Well, I think when I wrote that it was beta 1 or 2 from Coutts. Maybe later versions of the beta boot differently.
Haven't tried to uninstall/reinstall with beta 4 or the latest one.

Maybe my help file is not needed any more.

I have trouble installing ml on my 5Dc. Blue led just blinks when I try to upgrade firmware. SN#2831202173

Earlier in this thread - I posted some info for the install. You can only have one .fir file at a time on the card.

Also, as scrax says if you run the firmware update with the "5dc.111.ML install.fir" a second time it will turn the bootflag off.

see here:

try this and report :)

What would we be looking for that's new from beta4?


42
Canon 5Dm3, you should clarify / highlight that the ML displays do not show up until you repeatedly toggle "info."

Care to elaborate? This thread is for the 5D Classic ML.

Glad to be of assistance

Thanks Walta! I was unsure as my undead 5dc is not working properly... Have you got 5DC with ML beta4? Could you tell me what do you see on "show tasks"? specially regarding to canon yellow tagged function... it's the same as mine? CsMgrd: p30 m=56%

by the way! someone tell couts that maybe his canon got a dead fuse on DC/DC board!... i've just revived mine by soldering a small/thin wire over it and it come back! I've done it previously on other canons like 350D and such... easy trick.

Cheers

I'm not running it now. I deleted it when Coutts bricked his camera and work seems to have stopped on this project for a while.
There weren't any items in the beta version that I needed so I decided to unload it until progress resumes.

Maybe someone else on here can answer your question.

I don't see either Shutter Counts... should be where?

LiveView is working?


According to the earlier posts from the guys these 2 items are not available on the 5Dc.

Hello,
I'm new to the forum and have just loaded Magic Lantern onto my 5Dc.
I had no issues with the install.
I seem to be having the same issue as this post:

http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=3445.msg17215#msg17215

.......

2. The intervalometer - it works  the moment it is turned on in the ML menu, it starts counting down immediately and taking pictures without waiting for the shutter button to be depressed. Is his normal?



The Intervalometer is not a parameter you turn on and off. Its a script that you run.  So choosing it starts it right away.

Once it gets out of beta, the menus will be more user friendly.

b0ooo, thanks for the clarity about using only one .fir at a time. This tip worked for me but it works only about 50% of the time for some reason. There is no "Keep Magic Lantern" in the Format menu so I did lose ML twice before the light bulb went off. Well it's a beta so maybe  beta 5 will have that feature? This is a good thing for the 5Dc and I appreciate all that have put time into it. Will donate when it's out of beta for sure.  :)

Which .fir are you running? Bootflag?

Remember this from the Instructions

You only need to run the firmware update to enable the bootflag ONCE. Each time after that will only disable, re-enable, disable, re-enable, etc. the bootflag.

So it turns the bootflag on 50% of the time. Turns it off the other 50%

Are the EOS 5D (original) Beta 4 installation instructions correct on page
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1010.0?
There is no step 6.I can't get it to work. I can't get past a blinking blue light.

Thanks,

Does anybody know if it's possible to have focus trap working on this body? Is this feature being developed or it's not possible? I would like to know since I got a decent Zeiss lens getting bought soon :)

According to A1ex in his post a while back

"For more stuff (e.g. bulb exposures, trap focus or shutter count), one should dig deep inside the firmware. None of the tools from my current arsenal was able to find those, so it's probably hard - probably as hard as the 7D port "

.. You say BLink led mean bootdisk is disable ,so how to enable .. thanks

And to answer this question, as it says in the instructions re-running the firmware install with the card.bootable.fir file in it will toggle the bootdisk between OFF and ON.
