Very NEW to this and would like some advice.
« on: February 05, 2014, 03:49:50 PM »
I am really new to Magic Lantern and have been looking at a few videos that i have seen on YouTube and I would like to try this out, but before I do something silly can anyone please answer me a few questions:

I have a couple of Canon 7D's and I want to know how easy it is to go back to the normal Canon Firmware? I understand that this works from the card, but then I have also read on the forum that you cannot just delete or format the card with all your photos on as the camera will not be able to boot again?

So if for some reason I cannot get on with Magic Lanern and I wish to go back to Cabnon Firmware 2.0.3, what do I need to do?

ML doesn't replace Canon's firmware but runs on top of it. If you don't want to load ML just press SET at startup.
If you want to remove ML from the camera, reset the camera's bootflag. If bootflag is gone you may mess up the card as you like, it won't start ML at all and won't stall.
