Magic Lantern firmware for the 5D Mark II

As has been reported just about everyone, I've released the first public beta of the Magic Lantern firmware for the Canon 5D Mark II.  It isn't directly based on CHDK, but I am very appreciative of all of the incredible effort that you've put into understanding Canon's hardware and DryOS.  Without CHDK there isn't a chance that I would have been able to make such rapid progress -- using IDA Pro on a clean ROM dump is much easier than bitbanging a UART on the status LED and hoping for the best.

has been posted that shows the initial features and the improved audio quality in the modified firmware, when used with a higher quality external preamp like the juicedLink CX231.  The amps inside the camera are pretty bad and it only has an unbalanced input, so a good preamp is a requirement for higher quality sound.  As part of testing the new firmware, to find how to adjust the gain to produce the least noise.
