From what you wrote, I am guessing that you are mixing old files with new files.  Erase all of the old files from the card and put the new files on the card... and
write detail step by stepwhat you have done, from the start.

ok - i went back to step 1 and formatted my card in camera (firmware 1.1.3)
put the card into cardreader
copied 938047c files (august 21st) to card - including .fir, autoexec.bin and ML folder
copied actual nightly build to card and replaced (some) existing files
started eoscard.exe, made the card bootable - saved OK
put the card in camera, M-mode, video.mode
turned the camera on
it came up with a "card-test" for the first time (never had that before), and ML started without any modules loaded
in ML modules menu, turned all modules on for next reboot
rebooting brings up two errors: tcc: error: undefined symbol 'bfnt_printf' and error: undefined symbol 'free'
E (in brackets) failed to link modules

so the status is: ML seems to be running but without loading any modules. has anyone had that before? what can i do?? thank you!!

hi renato,

ref. 2: this 5D3 folder does not contain any .bmp in the subdirectory "doc". so from my point of view it is impossible to start ML just with these files ?!
ref. 3: the bootflag has been set with the 113 bootflag.fir" and it worked at least once - unfortunaltely only with that version missing any useful functions ...
from what i have read here, it is not possible to reset the bootflag - it is therefore still set. this is also indicated by the fact, that the camera does not start at all when the SD is bootable but no ML / autoexec is on the card. without the bootflag set, the camera would then start normal canon firmware, right? cheers, d.

hi renato,

thanx for your detailed reply! did all of your 7 steps: doesn't work :-/

question1: does it have to be the SD card, or can ML on a 5D3 run from the CF card, too?
question2: when you say "the ML folder" - what exactly does that include? just the nightly build from here
or anything else to start with before the nightly build is copied to the card (...and thus overwrites autoexec.bin + ML folder...) ??
in the "stable build" v2.3 the 5D3 is not mentioned. the only 5D3 build i found that actually starts on my cam by pressing the "delete" button has practically no functions and states something like "evaluation only with minor functions". overwriting this version with the actual nightly build does not work. what else can i try ???

thanx again, d.

it's in my post - card has been made bootable with eoscard. no effect ... :-/


bought a 5d3 FW 1.1.3 yesterday and tried to get ML up & running - no success. i have a 5d2 as well with ML running fine so i am not completely new to this. but:

the only ML version i can run on the new 5d3 is the alpha3 dated last year. however, after pressing "delete", a message appears, that this version has restricted functions - which is true... :-/

if i run ML FW update 113 WITH bootflag, the camera responds with "autoboot enabled :)". but in fact, it is NOT. when i turn off and on again with a card containing autoexec and ML folders AND the card has been made bootable with EOScard, the camera just loads CANON 1.1.3 - nothing else. it seems, that it is not possible, to enable the bootflag on this camera: if i run ML FW 113 WITH bootflag, and then insert a bootable card WITHOUT autoexec, the camera does not hang (which has been described in this forum) - it still loads CANON 1.1.3 - as if nothing had ever happend ---- WHY ???

is it possible that CANON have disabled the possibility to set bootflag on their latest produced cameras ??

thanx for your help !!

i shot a test CR2 with dual ISO 100/1600. when i drag it over cr2hdr.exe, it comes back with the message "Doesn't look like interlaced ISO". however, if i open the file in ACR it clearly shows the interlaced exposures. can someone help? what is going wrong? thanx!!

I believe you benchmark in playback mode by starting the test with the live view off. Don't worry about doing that because testing in playback mode gives invalid results anyways. It is benchmarking the performance of the camera to playback a recorded movie not the speed of recording a raw movie which is always slower. I am not sure what the proper settings are for doing a benchmark but I believe it should be either photo or movie mode.

You want the latest build, your build doesn't have Small Hacks on the build, this helps alot, and also the new Card Warm up seems to be nice, i found writing 128mb to the card on boot up to be best so far.

thanks for your reply! i was referring to the first benchmark result from *al*, who used the same build (27-jun) and the same card. but his results have been achieved in "playback" mode, which i cannot activate while running the tests - at least i don't know, how :-)
also, this build has the "small hacks" option and i can enable that - but the performace stays low :-/

my 5d2 with a transcend 1000x 32gb is not even closely as fast as the one above. any ideas why? is this related to "playback" or "photo" mode? and if so: how do i get into playback mode for the test?
