Well I have the 5D MKIII and I would love to upgrade to the ML software but I don't own a PC…  All my computers are MAC's and you don't have the software for MAC…  Will you be releasing a version for MAC soon?  Thanks in advance!!!

Hello All
New to the forum and researching what I need to install ML using my mac pro.

I do know you can use this http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/macboot/macboot.html instead of the EOSCard software which is for PC only.

My issue is using the newest ML build. If I have read correctly, we can use the alpha 3 build for the initial build then easily update to one of the bleeding edge builds. (Seems there is no stable build currently)
Does this good?

Any one with experience installing with a mac would be a great asset to assist this non techie.

"MacBoot.class" will enable you to set the boot flag on the memory card. I did, ML now works on my EOS-M.

I just found out my 5d Miii has had Magic Lantern installed before. The bootflag should of been already set correct?

Not necessarily. The early alpha build was a .fir file that needed to be flashed each time you wanted to use it, rather than booting every time via the bootflag. One way you can tell - does the camera take a second or two to wake up? If so then the bootflag is enabled. If it wakes up instantly then the bootflag probably hasn't been set yet.
