Compiling the current source code will give you that version to get started. The menu works, but other than that I have no idea what else works.

Maybe jplxpto can publish the devkit (the FIR for enabling the bootflag and dumping the firmware)?

How much it cost the developing of a working firmware?

Hello all!
Tell me please, where I can download current source code?
Is there AF microadjustment function? I need only this one.
Or maybe I can adjust AF without ML?
Thank you for this job!
And sorry for my english, I'm from Russia :)

Will this bring ML to 450D

@ jplxpto , coutts.

Thanks guys for all your efforts and hard work.  :)

If finally we get a ML download for 40D, do we get a ML for 450D as well?

No, but it will be easier to port, if anyone is interested in doing that.

Нету в ML микроаджустмента, такчто даже не надейтесь.

Or maybe I can adjust AF without ML?
У 40д нет такой фичи, так что только нести объектив в сервис.

Ничего, бывает =)

I have 40D and would like to give it a try with Magic Lantern. I have a background with CHDK but never thought about ML until now. If anyone has a dumped 1.1.1 please PM me.

Consider to switch to 50D/550D and install ML to play with. The price drop of the 40D since last year was a significant amount(from $350 to $250 on the Craigslist in Canada) and so are the other two mentioned here. 40D is good but the other two are equally good in some other aspects.

Anyway, don't waste time waiting, just go out and click, click and click.

It's not really that hard - if you have enough time, motivation, some basic programming skills and the desire to learn, you can do it. It's quite similar to programming embedded devices or microcontrollers.

Wow......will this happen on 40D ?
I found the required function stubs for it, so in theory it should work if somebody is still working on this port ;)

Too bad that the developer seems to have abandoned ship, so we may never know... :-\
Then again, this is all voluntary work, and messy stuff, so I can understand it if he suddenly decided it wasn't worth the effort... I unfortunately completely lacks the skill to finish off what he started.

this topic caught my attention as well. If I had the skills I certainly would help, I did a little of coding in my past years but I can't imagine how hard it is to achieve a firmware modification on a camera. there are certain things that an older camera like the 40D would benfefit from, like the software is really old (auto-iso etc.) but the images are still awesome (I do prefer sometimes the 10MP sensor over smaller pixels) so, what canon wants us to do: buy a newer tool. with software so complicated to adjust on cameras its really a smart step of camera manufactures to keep them at dinousaur stage.
well, I assume you all agree, what I wanted to say: If there is a way I can help, I'll invest a lot of my free time (which I got like a month for this summer) If there is enough information available that someone like me could possibly read into that field of work.

best regards

I was following this thread when it was active, but I think the 50D development has been prioritized for the moment.

I've got a 40D, so I would certainly help with testing builds, but like others I have limited programming experience.

I'M LIVE :)

Sorry ... I have spent many days with health problems and hard work.
My life has been a bit complicated but I hope to get back to work on this project a few days from now.
I'll need to read some posts. I am now a bit outdated.

I think the developers have done an excellent job.

I promise appear shortly.

BR

Hope things have bettered up for you 'jplxpto'. Thanks so much for the dedication you have put into the development of ML for us 40D users. (Of course gratitude goes out to Alex and all the other developers also).

I heard about ML only last night from my wife's boss who uses it on the 5D MkII. He does commercials and all that stuff with it. He's very excited about it and trust me, I can see why.
It would be a real joy to be able to shoot video on my trusty 40D. I just cant wait.
Thanks for the great work guys. I'll surely be one of the first to download ML for the 40D.
The CHAMP is herrrrrrrre!

Hello guys ... sorry ... I've been very busy with work ...and also some health problems.

I've been completely absent during the last months ...
I hope to soon be able to return to work for this magnificent community
and of course I'll come to invest some time in the port of 40D.

Best regards

that is awesome news jplxpto, I am new to the community and although I am fortunate enough to have ML for 6D I have been hoping to see the 40D with some ML 'goodness' :D

very encouraging!!

Good to hear from jplxpto after long long time. You are only person working on this port and all our eyes are on you.....May God bless you with health and you can work on this port.

Can you please tell us how much more work would be required to complete this port. Last time I think you were working with menus. hope to hear good news from you and we all pray from your health......amen
