Hi, i have just registered myself here to say thanks for this firmware!

One question also:
Do you think it will possible make the new feature: watch the shutter count?
Sorry for my bad english.

Thanks a lot.

Watch the shutter count is that possible in the future?
Thanks

If you need to read the shutter count you can probably use GPHOTO2

"5D and 20D are not supported by any available software. The only way to get shutter counts for those models = send to canon."

Too bad!

thanks to all

I'm sorry if this is redundant, but i really want to confirm. Can the 5D classic be hacked for video mode at all? I have a 5D that I love dearly and use extensively. But recently I feel the increasing need for video that I might have to sell my 5D (God forbids) to get maybe a cropped Rebel or the 50D. What do you guys think?

Help I gave to an earlier poster who was having the same problem as you.


==========================================================
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.

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.

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 "

As some of you already know, I bricked my 5dc yesterday while testing some new boot code. I tried to diagnose and fix it but unfortunately it's out of our reach for reviving. The bootloader appears to be toast, so canon firmware doesn't boot and no bootloader = nobody to boot autoexec.bin files. Basically we can't do anything since we can't run autoexec.bin files. It essentially acts as if it is soft bricked (like many early 5dc testers experienced), except there is no fixing it - pulling the battery has no effect. As a result, the 5dc port is now on hold until further notice until someone with a 5dc can take over development.

I disassembled the camera to see if anything was fried, but I didn't see anything. I'm sorry everyone, this is just a case of bad luck (I wasn't even trying anything dangerous, it just bricked). It was fun while it lasted (and my 5d too, i just bought it in February..). Now I just have this new paper weight:



So... who will take over now?

Well, how about we look for that JTAG port? :p

I don't know anything about jtag or how to use it, but i saw 3 connection spots not plugged into anything. I think somethings really wrong with the camera (like hardware damage or something). when I was diagnosing it would act random sometimes (one time it actuated the shutter when i turned it on). I still have no idea what happened but some stuff got pretty messed up (g3gg0 even suggested that the Digic [main processor] may be dead).

Can you point out the unused connections?

Unfortunately the TX chip in that package doesn't expose the JTAG pins :/

Jtag comes in 9 pin. Could be that.
