Hi, I upgraded to the latest 7d nightly (Nightly.2014Jun09.7D203). When running burn in test, I got the following errors:

ASSERT: IsSuiteSignature( hSuite )
at PackMemory\PackMem.c:976, task run_test
lv:1 mode:2


ASSERT: IsChunkSignature( hPos )
at PackMemory\PackMem.c:1001, task run_test
lv:0 mode:2


Any need to worry about that? I don't want to brick my Cam. :)

What burn-in test did you run, and starting from what mode (on the mode dial)?

Hello

Well i'm finally on my way to get a second hand 7D and the guy i'm getting it from is another city which i'm traveling into 2 days from now
and i'll stay there for 2 days which means i don't really have much time.

I have two questions:

-Beside general tips for buying second hand camera body is there anything that i should be concerned about ML working properly?
like the firmware version? i heard it's not possible to downgrade.

-When i got the camera what do you guys suggest i install to get good amount of features while preventing the camera from having problems (Nightly builds , the one in website , etc)
other than a nature problem of 7d working with ML like a problem that only 7D has with it , is there?

If someone has more information i would really appreciate it.

Nope, downgrade is possible

Either you want to use ML (for whatever reason) or you dont want to use ML. If you run into bugs: Please fill out a bug report. The only way to get better code is to try and test the one at hand.

Ciao

Really tempted to try ML but cannot afford to brick my camera until they release the successor.
It seems like the build has come really far, how often do people report permanent damage to the cam?

Bad for you. We all are millionaires and brick a 7D on every other day.

Hello

I'm new here but hope this is the good place to ask.

I wanted to try ML with my 7D so I've dowloaded the lastest version of the nightybuild. But I can't copy the ML files into my CF card. Each time i'm trying to do this, it's a crash : "The Finder can’t complete the operation because some data can’t be read or written.(Error code -36)"

I'm quite sure to follow the installation guide

The firmware of my 7D is 2,0,5 (and not 2,0,3)... does that matter ?

Thanks for your help

You have to downgrade cam firmware to 2.0.3.
Every ML version dedicated to a cam (aka: not unified) has a suffix showing the cam's proper firmware version.

If you google for
finder error 36
you will find the solution to your cf-card problem.
It's quite a common one ...

Thanks Walter

I'll downgrade the firmware... as soon as I fix the error36
It's a common one, sure of that, but the usual solution (terminal > "dot_clean ") is not working
Still searching

Regarding buying a 7D (and assuming you haven't bought it yet), here's an excellent article about buying 2nd hand:
http://www.dpreview.com/articles/4701677448/how-to-inspect-a-used-canon-eos-7d

He even specifies which firmware versions you're looking for.

There in nothing specific you need to look for regarding Magic Lantern. If the 7D passes all your other tests then it will be ok for Magic Lantern (you might need to fiddle with the firmware, but that's all).

Enjoy!
Robert

What would it take to get ML working with 2.0.5?

I already have a 7D
I've downgraded the firmware to 2.0.3
But I can't copy ML files into my CF Card... Error -36... I've tried many ways (dot_clean etc...) but still doesn't work
So I'm stuck...
Thanks for helping

You were able to copy the firmware file to your CF card but unable to copy ML contents?

Suggestion: Try a different cardreader or update your cardreader firmware. Solved error -36 for some people.

Thank you.
I'm afraid there's no driver for that reader...
I'll try an other one...
that's a little boring...

I'm not talking about a driver. I'm talking about uploading the newest firmware to your cardreader. Yes, a cardreader has something like that. Don't know if there is an update for your cardreader, though.

Sort of. I had to do some significant cleanup (that's why it took a bit longer), but now it passes my sanity tests (there was a memory leak) and it also passes the menu usability guidelines.

You may try it in the current nightly.
