There is little to none for the 1000d.
Syscal did some important first steps, but nothing near a working port.
There is nothing yet, no Magic Lantern menu not a single Magic Lantern function etc.

Best way to make use of Magic Lantern is to buy another Canon DSLR which is compatible with Magic Lantern.
Click the 'Downloads' button at the top of this page and go to the 'Nightly builds' here you can see which camera's are supported.
Many of them are released many years ago, second hand they're really affordable.
Some are better supported then others (depending on the user base and if active developers support them) I believe the Classic Canon EOS-M is one of the better supported cheap cams.

1000D is such a great backup camera. It's sad to see the development was discontinued halfway..
Sad to see such a nice cam go down in history without anything to it's name. :(

It's 2018, but ML on this camera would still be awesome.
@Syscal Any updates on development?

Development has not been discontinued - everything from the QEMU branch is tested on the 1000D firmware, too! (along with ~20 other models able to run the GUI, and ~10 models not there yet)

I'm simply unable to take care of all these cameras alone (at least not in a timely fashion). It's now up to the community to follow our porting guides and do something about it ;)
