Loaded or not
« on: February 23, 2013, 08:48:35 PM »
Hi ML crew --

I've supported ML, and seen it being used by folks, but haven't loaded it before today. 

Today I loaded it up Alpha 3 onto a formatted SD card (macboot) and did the "update" to my 5Dm3 camera firmware.  It seems to load ML, although I never get the green success screen.  I can push the trash icon to pull up the menus, etc.  However, I don't get the Shoot menu (with HDR and intervalometer) or Movie mode with FPS override. 

Is this how it's supposed to be, or did I miss a step?

Also, every time I turn on and off the camera the firmware reverts back to canon 1.1.3, this is normal?

Which means you'll have to re-run the firmware update every time you power off the camera.
It's a safety measure, so don't ask to remove it until the port is stabler.

Sounds good to me!  Can you please tell me about the other options I'm not seeing, but are in the guide? For the same reason?
