So I've formatted my card and I've copied the 1.1.1 firmware on to it to the root directory but when I inserted the card back in the camera my screen turns blank again and the red blinking light shows up. Without the card I can access pretty much all the menu settings but with a card even a clean one with anything on it the screen won't come up

And I smell macOS. Please use disk utility and erase card first.

I have a T1i I bought a long ass time ago and I've been trying to get it working for video with larger SD cards.  I flashed it a few months back but the video function crashes fairly often and is somewhat annoying, when I have a moment this weekend though I will try to flash this as I don't use it often but it would be nice to have it properly functional with larger cards.
