Thought I'd post again.

Can the ML 1.2.3 be on a separate SD card and not the CF card you are shooting to, or does the ML firmware have to be on the shooting CF card. If it can be a separate SD card is there a speed requirement for the SD card?

Is there somewhere I can find out this information?
Yes it can. Take a look at http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=20060.msg388253#msg388253 there is a whole discussion on it if you scroll up in that thread.

looks like the 1.2.3 firmware development process has not been very active recently....

When do you think there will be a stable version of 1.2.3 ML?

Walter, you seem to know a thing or two about software releases  ;)

I manage to download a new nightly at least once a week for 5D III 1.2.3 is that not up to par with the aggressive schedule you've set for the Devs of a free software?  ::)

I'm just being angry at myself for not taking part of the development process :)

I took a quick look at most recent build  for 5DIII 1.2.3 (2014-04-22) and noticed 'UNDO' step.
Does it mean 'no update' to 2014-04-16 version?

Hello everyone, I'm looking to use ML for stills only. Just tried the latest build and see that in the "Shoot" menu there's only an A +2EV. Is there no plans of have up to 9 shot brackets for exposure?

Press Q. If there is a little Q showing in a menu item it is a good idea to go for it.

Hi everybody, I've been testing last two builds of ML, still not the 04-22-2014 one. They have worked very well for me, I've been shooting stills, and .MOV video. I don't have any fast card enough to shoot RAW video, so I can not say anything about this feature.
My question is: For those people that doesn't need to shoot RAW video, and only shoot in .MOV, is secure enough? In my tests I didn't have any corrupted files or frames, but I read at the begining of the post, that for video is better the 1.1.3 version, or this was only for RAW video?
I have to shoot for professional use, and I don't want to have any problem with the footage. And I would like to use the LV DIGIC peaking (for easy focus), the shooter fine tuning (to avoid screens and lights flickering), and the display information that ML has.

Thanks a lot to the big effort of developers, ML is an amazing tool.

As far as I know  (could be mistaken) there's no stable ML version  for 5DIII (yet).
So, I guess it's not a good idea to use alpha/betta/gamma test versions for your professional work.

Thank's vovkinson, I know there is no stable version for 5DIII yet, but in my experience testing latest ML builds, I find it is stable enough for the work I do. I've been testing ML during last two weeks, with no problem at all.
I just wanted to know, if somebody had any problem shooting video in the original Canon format .MOV, all I have found in the forum were RAW video issues.

I installed on 1.2, but it doesn't work. The ML menu doesn't appear when I press 'erase' and theres no addition to the regular UI. What's wrong?

jeremynative,
If you describe how you were installing ML (step-by-step) - maybe somebody will help you out here.  Your statement "just does not work" wouldn't find many responses.

You can shoot with the original mov even with ml. But if you enable the raw module its disabled.

So..every time you wanna shoot mov you just turn off the raw module. Its simple like that.

I found out the issue with my camera. I get a 'irregular battery' message when I load my camera, so that interrupted the installation process. Had to take the battery attachment off and it worked, works with it reattached after installation too.

May be important to include that in the installation instructions
