Please help, how to uninstall? (5D mark2) video added! [Solved]

Need help, how to uninstall? (5D mark2)
The instructions don't work:

    With a Magic Lantern card, launch the Firmware Update process and follow the instructions on-screen.
    Re-installing Canon firmware will not remove Magic Lantern.

The above only installs the magic firmware again.... :o

Please help.

There are none, only succses magic latern is installed.
What am i missing?

Should the camera be booted in any special mode?

Please help, i need my camera as it was.
The boot time with ML is 3sek, even from sleep.
Nice features but boot time is more important to me.

I'm not sure but for me.
I just go to.

Menu/Format/Press Q, Then it will say (Format card, keep magic lantern [Q]) keep pressing [Q] until it says (Format card, remove magic lantern [Q])
Say yes.
Done.

But this is for the 60D has well as a SDHC card.
(Don't take my word for it)

Hi Alvess, like exomonkeyman said...
ML only resides on the memory card.  Format the card using (Q) to select that ml be deleted and not restored and ML will be removed from the card and will not be "on" your camera. You can also start the cam without running ML by holding down the SET button (600D) while turning on the camera. Read up in the guides for your camera model, I dont if  the 5dmii has a set button.
That should work. Good luck
600D x2

Very funny, but I'am not up to jokes right now.  >:(

I want the below screen from this page: http://wiki.magiclantern.fm/install


Is it possible or can't ML be uninstalled from the camera as advertised?

Or is this information wrong?

Don't just delete the Magic Lantern files from the card! If you do, the camera will freeze at startup and you'll have to take the battery out.
Uninstalling ML from one card
-Format that card from the camera (select this option: Format card, remove Magic Lantern) and reboot. Your camera will load the original firmware when you use that card.
Uninstalling ML from the camera
-With a Magic Lantern card, launch the Firmware Update process and follow the instructions on-screen.
    Re-installing Canon firmware will not remove Magic Lantern.

Since you didn't get it. The BOOTDISK flag it is the only thing that ML stores on your camera. To disable it you need to run the installer then turn the mode dial when instructed....  ::)

Thanks! Now when my blood preasure is lower and I understand english again.. :-[

But seriously 3sek boot time and a camera that appered bricked, until i took out the battery a couple of times.
ML has some real cool features, but until the boot time and the random freezing is sorted I pass.

Thanks again, alvess

There is no random freezing as long as you follow the bold advice from the install guide.

Sweet, is there a "tip" for the boot time as well?  :)

No, ML has to wait for Canon firmware to initialize first.

You can use a card without ML when you need speed, and another one with ML when you need its features.

Beside: use a smaller card or use a second one without ML, no. We can't change what canon does

Why does it say that this thread is solved? I have the same problem. I cannot uninstall ML. I don't get the screen that is shown in the manual. My MII camera now only works with one of my memory cards. And I can't uninstall ML. Please help.

Its silly as ML advise to format the card  by pressing PicSel button(to remove ML from the card) and then to remove any trace from the camera itself you actually need to put the ML firmware back to the memory card  to run installer!!!! where is the sense?? very annoying! After I  installed ML, main dial button and Live View button stopped working!! I want to give the camera  to service (still under warranty) and have no idea how to remove any traces of ML from camera itself!!  anyway its 5d mk2. Any help much appreciated

That's because you have to remove ML from the camera FIRST and then from the card. We can't do it the other way around ::)

Before sending your camera to service, you need to read the user guide from Canon ;)

And ML install guide, of course.

to clarify...

a) no ML
    BOOTDISK flag in flash is DISABLED
    CARD is NOT BOOTABLE
    CARD CONTAINS NO autoexec.bin

b) installed ML
    BOOTDISK flag in flash is ENABLED
    CARD is BOOTABLE
    CARD CONTAINS autoexec.bin

c) user made mistake and deleted autoexec.bin
    BOOTDISK flag in flash is ENABLED
    CARD is BOOTABLE
    CARD CONTAINS NO autoexec.bin --->> CRASH ON STARTUP (black screen)

d) user made mistake and formatted the card in computer OR uses another card
    BOOTDISK flag in flash is ENABLED
    CARD is NOT BOOTABLE
    CARD CONTAINS NO autoexec.bin --->> NO MAGIC LANTERN, NORMAL BOOT


to uninstall ML all three things have to be undone.

BOOTDISK flag <- toggled with the installation .fir (on-screen instructions explain it very good)
CARD BOOTABLE <- you can format card on your computer, burn it in fire or buy a new one
autoexec.bin <- you can format card on your computer, burn it in fire or buy a new one


i am not sure why this would cause so much trouble?

Thanks for your reply.
I have removed ML from the camera so when I check the firmware version on the camera menu, ML is not visible. Is that mean no traces at all of ML firmware  on 5d itself??
Can I remove it now from the card by formatting the card on my PC?? or it must be done through the camera?
If I remove the ML from the camera first the option to remove it from the card is no more available in the camera menu...
I hope that canon people will not say "sorry but you have installed ML and your warranty is void" ...

Correct.

Don't forget to read your Canon manual, because your 5D Mark II works just as Canon designed it, no need to send it to service.

Hi g3gg0, The trouble is that I am not sure what exactly 5d store in the internal memory. I now when I burn the card or do low format on PC then the memory card is completely wiped out.. but i don't know what technicians in canon repair services will see on the computer screen when connect my 5d..

a1ex,  The reason why I am sending my 5d to the service is that suddenly after I installed ML, 2 buttons stop working. I have removed ML formatted the card, even reinstall the canon firmware but 2 buttons sill are dead(live view and main aperture dial). Its probably the coincident and have nothing to do with installing ML... i hope
