Hello (from France)!
After installation, j don't obtain the green screen "success"...it's normal?
My files are in .mov container...it's normal? (on a Komputerbay CF 1000)

Thank you very much

It won't be long before Alpha 3 is a year old.  Any updates on the development for the Canon 5D MK III?  I am hoping that something will be available for firmware 1.2.1 since I also use the Ninja 2.

Thanks

Just the same case: waiting for the 1.2.1 ML version. Also working with Ninja 2.

In the general development forum people have answered what needs
to be done for 1.2.1 before it can be switched.
They have different priorities but would gladly accept help on those
cumbersome jobs.

Unfortunately my skills are not good enough to be any help.

That is not a brain surgery... :)
You need the ROM dump from the 1.1.3 version and the same ROM dump from the new fw 1.2.1.
If you have a 5D3 then you can get them easily with the devkit.
Then donwload http://pel.hu/down/ARMu.exe, start two instance of it, load the two dumps to them (use the project file from here: http://pel.hu/down/5D3_113.prj, edit the workdir in it, copy to 5D3_121.prj).
Then download the https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/raw/6bb97bcbc0f4ec7ab8b68ff7342541dc5a84665f/platform/5D3.113/stubs.S file from the bitbucket repository.
It contains memory addresses and labels.
That is for the 1.1.3 fw so find the addresses in the first ROM dump then go to the other ROM dump and try to find the same routine in that one.
You can search for code pieces or strings or use your intuition... :)
When you find the address put it into a new stub.S file (you can copy the old one and replace the addresses in it).
Then pick the next address from the old stub and search again.
That's it.
Even if you don't understand the code you can find the most of the stubs and the devs will finish the rest.

Then sorry, I didn't want to reinvent the wheel...

Anyway I can use a 1.2.1 dump if someone has an extra... :)

Hello!

My name is Charlie. I have been a long time user of Magic Lantern from 600D/60D/5D Mark III and it's been fantastic!

I made a video tutorial for installing Magic Lantern, specifically for the 5D Mark III. The video has been really well received, and I return emails every single day from people personally thanking me for it, and also lots of questions that possibly weren't covered in the video. It would be great to help out some more people with this video. So take a look, and by all means recommend it to other if/when they get stuck.

Maybe you want to post it under Video Tutorials.   I dont have bandwidth to watch videos so is this for the installation all the way to RAW or only for Alpha 3

Re: Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III - Alpha 3 vs nightly build
« Reply #809 on: September 15, 2013, 08:21:29 AM »
Hi all,

Just wondering if I should download the alpha 3 version for the 5d mkiii, or if I should use the latest nightly build specifically for the 5D3.113 platform (magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Sep15.5D3113).  It’s a little confusing, as there’s a note in the forum that the nightly build is not for the 5dmkiii.

I'd like to explore ML purely for still photography (it looks like the water's safe), so am looking for the most stable candidate to support that.

By the way, thanks to Charlie and Dugdale for posting the installation how-to clips, and to the ML developers!   BTW, hope I'm posting in the right area of the forum.

Cheers,
Robert

You cannot use nightly build untill you set the bootflag in the camera.  Notice that this process can not be undone yet.

Thanks for the tip and links, Renato.  Just to clarify, this is the installation process to take even if I'm only interested in testing ML's core functionality for still photography?

The advanced modules (AETTR and DUAL ISO)  are both for photo or video.  I all depends on what you want to do.  No clear cut decision, you make your own decisions.

Again I'm totally new here and only installed the 2.3 to my 550D - it is working great including the HDR-video!

As everyone else I'm too excited to try ML on my more expensive 5Dm3. I have watched Charlie's & Dave's tutorials:
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=6099.0

Trying to browse the forum too for a couple of days now. As I understand C&D tutorials they are installing a nightly build version with the bootflag.fir - which cannot be undone. Some threads also suggest that changing the bootflag (still don't quite understand it) would slow down the start up time of 5Dm3 remarkably.

I don't want any permanent changes to my 5Dm3 at this alpha stage, but am happy to accept the fir-update process at every start up. So I'm asking some questions:
- Does this version "Magic Lantern for 5D Mark III - Alpha 3 + DevKit" change the "bootflag" or does the camera revert back to the original Canon firmware at every startup? Is it different to what Charlie and Dave are doing?
- Can you add the RAW functionality without the "bootflag" or not?

No RAW without bootflag set.

Recent changes in ML changed the M for an icon with four little squares, this is the modules tab.  Some manuals have to be updated. :'(

I have used ML on a 60D but have changed it for a 5D3 with f/w 1.2.1.

Will ML work with it and does it need to be reloaded everytime of turning on the camera?

Sorry for the questions but getting confused about what is happening having updated the f/w from 113 however I do not have a video recording device for video but have noticed that with 121 it does not like non canon batteries and other than that cannot see what else has been added to 121. Does anyone know what are the changes and yes have looked on the UK and USA canon sites for info but they are very weak on giving such information?

ML will not work with 1.21 on 5D3.

Is that likely to change any time soon, e.g., before the end of year etc?

If not, is it worth reverting back to f/w 113?

I do more stills than video .

3. ML good for still and video

Hmm, looks like I have to go back to 113.
Last questions:

1. Is ML now safe(ish) to use the boot file to make ML permanent as against reloaded on every turn on as this will allow me to use a ACK-6 mains power instead of battery?

The older version would NOT load as the camera would report a battery fault with the ACK-6 and then go back to the boot firmware screen.

If all that is ok, then where is the current version or should I use one of the nightly builds?

 Thanks for your help.

2. 113 is good

I beg to differ.

Photography remains my main application, and the AFMA error in 113
gives me random AF problems that are fixed in 121.

Worse: Some people have reported that they suffer from the AFMA error
after downgrading to 113 back from 121 but haven't had that with the
initial 113.

That is of course completely irrelevant for people who don't use their
5D mkIII for anything except filming and who use manual focus pulling.

But for those of us who take still pictures as well, 113 is likely a major problem.

Just sayin.
