Firmware Version 1.1.4 incorporates the following fixes:
1.Fixes a phenomenon in which some images cannot be transferred to mobile devices running the EOS Remote app.
2.Corrects an error in the German language Feature Guide.
3.Corrects an error in the Korean language Feature Guide.

My understanding is that ML for the 6d won't work if the 6d has firmware 1.1.4 installed. Correct?

Yep, have to see what is in it. Doesn't look like much has changed on the surface.

... but probably disables 3rd party batteries just like the recent 5d3 fw updates :-p

True, disables 3rd party batteries.

"the 6D menu gave me a warning after the update: "Irregular communication with battery."

I'd noticed this with 1.1.3 and 3rd party (non-oem) batteries. I haven't installed 1.1.4 yet, and may never install it.

Overall, my 6d seems much fussier and uncooperative about batteries than my 5d2. Even the 6d charger can be a p.i.t.a. to work with, compared with the charger that came with the 5d2.

I've just upgraded from a 700D with ML to a new 6D which came with 1.1.4.

Is it possible to downgrade to 1.1.3 so I can run the ML Nightly?

Fantastic, thanks Walter.

Is it as easy as following the normal update process but with the older file on the card?
