dfort, great reply, thank you for all the information, much appreciated.

I just can't have the worry of what not being on the latest Canon firmware could do, so I'll hang fire for ML 135.

Would it be possible for ML to enable 4:2:2 10 bit hdmi out, do you think?  That would be so awesome.

i did the answer on the ML forum because here is the "fountain" for this information , i don't want to waste time generally in the internet from people who sometimes  don't really understand this particular   case ... from firmware 1.3.3 and over it's not the easiest way to downgrade , and specially for the last firmware i own 1.3.5 there are very few and general information for downgrading .... and because i am afraid that i might do something wrong i ask the most experienced "players" for this job .

please check this link https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=18941.msg179807#msg179807.
@dfort made a very good documentation about upgrading and downgrading (Original post: Firmware update/downdate?) specifically for 5DMKIII 1.3.3 and newer releases. (I guess it works for all EOS models).

I do have a test build for the 5D3.134 on my downloads page but it is highly experimental and doesn't have a .FIR file. This means that in order to set the camera bootflag you need to downgrade to an ML supported firmware (1.1.3 or 1.2.3) and to set the card bootflag you'll have to do it on your computer using software like MacBoot or EOSCard. I tried doing a 1.3.5 ML port but ran into problems. Maybe someday I'll revisit this but for now my preferred ML setup with the 5D3 is using the 1.1.3 firmware and the crop_rec_4k branch.

Hallo,
is there any new news if magic lantern functions with 1.3.4 or 1.3.5?

I managed to make it work some time ago. But the card is gone and I do not have a card that is "bootflag" and I do not know how to do that either.
So I'm considering whether I go to firmware 1.2.3 and magic lantern run let.
Is there any pros or cons?

Reply #105 just above your post still applies. The 1.3.4 pull request is still open and a test build is still available from my downloads page.
