1080p mode is more reliable to me in the Danne build than Crop Mood build. Does anyone else find that or is it just me?

It's pretty much the same for me in 4.2k. I counter black screen by pressing menu and then shutter and it get backs to normal, but the fact of the matter is it's annoying. The other issue is camera constantly overheating and to me that's major issue. A ton of corrupted and pink frames, dead pixels, autostops and so on make it really unreliable and after shooting for few months, I don't share everyone else's hype about it. The only reason I resorted to Crop Mood lately is I get what I see but honestly don't like the tradeoff. Might as well spend few more seconds framing for way more reliable results.

Result is I got my initial condition exactly replicated - steady orange light constantly lit, right after closing the lid. On power up, it will blink green few times while orange stays lit. No screen, no signs of life.

Ok, used 8 GB card and it worked.

All right, managed to prepare a new card with EOScard. This is what rom dump autoexec looks like.

Apparently it did not save a log file. Also, I'm not sure which startup log zip to install, as there is no EOS M specific and what do I do next?

Gents, I need help with my bricked EOS M. I wrote yesterday in the facebook group but will also post here, as I'm getting slightly desperate now.

The story is after shooting 23 clips, I was switching wind attenuator off and the on when the camera powered down leaving solid orange light lit. Long story short, dozens of power ups and downs, lens, card and battery swaps, there are two behaviours the camera would exhibit:

when the card is in the camera
- green will blink few times like during a normal power up but the screen will never get powered, connecting an external monitor would show no signal
- connecting the camera to PC via cable does not work at all

when the card is not in the camera
- green will blink indefinitely and screen will power up but show nothing on it, connecting an external monitor shows current mode --- or --- Err 70 will be displayed
- connecting the camera to PC via cable works as intended but EOS Utility can't perform firmware update as it needs card in the camera

At the time of the incident, I was using Danne's January build. After hours of browsing, I ended up finding this topic, which seems to sum up what's going on.

I tried just about everything but nothing would work if there is card in the camera. I can't believe there is no way to perform a hard reset or flash the camera using the PC as firmware medium or, I don't know, using some low level command line tool or something.  :'(
Hi, gents. What are your touch focus settings and generally what is your experience with it? I had quite a decent experience with the previous build I was using, but can't really say the same about the latest nightly build. What I'm looking for is just be able to switch focal point without the servo interfering all the time as I move and it seems it just does not work this way anymore. Yes, there is rack focus, but that unnecessarily complicates things for me. Or did the rack focus replace touch focus in newer builds? Or am I doing something wrong?
