Missing files in latest zip (Jan18)
« on: January 18, 2013, 08:57:37 PM »
The current nightly build (magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2013Jan18.60D.550D.600D.50D.500D.5D2.1100D.zip) seems to have some missing files (for example there is only the .fir for the 1100D).

Just merge/overwrite the files from the 2.3 release with the files from the nightly and you should be good. If you need to patch the autoboot flag,just use the 2.3 release and replace with the newer files then.

It isn't a problem for me - I just needed the autoexec :)

I posted this because I was under the impression that the nightly zip contains all the files required for running ML.

No,  it is meant to upgrade a stable build to nightly. That's why you should install 2.3 first and the overwrite the files

Helo there,
First of all, thank you very much for improving the software in our Canons!!
I've been trying to install LM in my T4i /650D but I can't. I've had read the install guide, an several other guides on the net but I simply can't...

My camera says something like ".fir file needed" and in fact there is no .fir file in the downloaded zip.

What can I do???
I'm using magiclantern-v2.3.NEXT.2014Jan06.650D104
Camera firmware updated to the correct version (1.0.2)
4GB Sandisk SD formated in camera -Low level-
4GB Sandisk SD prepared on macboot in MAC, even EOScard on Win
Inner zip files loaded to the SD card

nothing...

.fir file needed..""

Thanx in advance!!

Download the stable 2.3 release from the downloads page, then extract & replace new files from the nightly build you downloaded in order to get the latest features. Nightly builds don't come as complete releases.

there's no stable for the 650D, install the alpha version from here instead: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7473.0
then update to the nightly

I suppose you mean the stable version as this one:

Even if I got a 650D right? not an alpha version...
If I understand you well, I guess I should replace only those files that nightly build zip overwrites.

thank you

Sorry about that, forgot there's no stable release for the 650D. Download the alpha version from the link dmilligan posted (2 posts up), then update any new files from latest nightly build to get new features.

that bullet was close!!!  :o

thank you!!  ;)

I was wondering...
If I use several sd cards I need to have ML files in every card after installation?
Or I don't need those ML files on any card anymore?

Yep, you need the ML files on all cards you intend to use ML with  :)

Hey,
I can't install the latest nightlys on 600D as well. I've tried several things, and it seems the autoexec.bin is broken.

Like told here, I overwrote the files from 2.3 stable with the nightly.
If I use the autoexec.bin from the nightly, the camera just won't start. Red LED is blinking like when reading a SD, but it doesn't stop, even when I remove the SD.
I have to completely remove the battery to make it stop.

But everything works fine if I use the autoexec.bin from 2.3 stable release - but then the ML-menu is the same like in stable, I don't get the new features like dual iso.

Put SD-card into cardreader and *delete* your ML folder. Then copy Nightly ML folder and Autoexec.bin over. Try again.

I've tried every possible combination yesterday, also just deleting and using the nightly (which was my first try). Problem started there.

So by try and error I found out the problem lies within the autoexec.bin from the nighlys. It simply doesn't work with 600D.

Okay thanks, problem is fixed with latest nighly.
But it seems there's no dual ISO for 600D  :(

Nope sorry.
Either I forgot to add something or its not there.
AFAIK It should be in the exposure menu but I only got:
White balance
ISO
Shutter
Aperture
Picture Style
Expo Lock
Expo Presets
Expo Override

I installed the latest nightly build and FONTS.DAT was missing.
So I overwrote the files from the build onto the stable release for 550D.
But it does not work apparently.
