Impressive update Coutts.  Can't wait to finish up my shift and try this stuff out at home.

37147 for my count, sounds accurate.
also when you turn the camera on, pressing half shutter a few times right before the screen comes up will display MAGIC OFF, magic lantern won't boot until the next time the camera is started. kind of like a switch for ML for on/off. ported with latest 550d code.

sounds awsome!, but im still iffy about leaving the bootloader on :( it still drains my batteries even after i took out the battery for a while and put it back in... really annoying.

cool addition, Jamez love the trammel startup. Coutts great job again, this old camera becomes more of a tool for serious filmamking every build. the menu flickers more now, you surely know that. really love that 1.16 seems to be right around the corner with magiczoom! has anyone tried to save any other images as logo.bmp and had success adding different boot images? thanks to all from trammell to Jamez with Coutts, arm.indiana alins alex patlooneytoon and all the rest along the way, great job!

@rootski why dont you try it?
You just need a 228 x 228 bitmap image called logo.bmp and it should work. The splash screen is part of the latest 550D code, looks pretty cool when it starts up :)

@aznguy, shutter count is working and accurate here, and no battery drain probs (there was in some alpha builds for me but not in the betas).

V1.5 is less stable than 1.4 for sure, but its considerably better IMHO and is definately the way forward!

really? cause i thought it was cause of the bootloader itself. because i usually store my camera without the ML SD card, and somehow it drains while being off

For the logo I upscaled mine to 700 x 460 and it fills the entire screen. The only problem I keep having is the color pallet keeps showing up strange if I try to alter the image.

Edit: It seems it must be grayscale and not too bright or dark.

Interesting logos Pat, I might steal the top one, but I prefer the smaller size, as other things are going on on the screen at the same time as the logo is shown.

Maybe its better if we start to link to zips which have the latest autoexec.bin, the manual, cropmarks, and logo all bundled in one package instead of just the autoexec. For sure we will need that manual when you start playing with it.

About the wiki there seems to be about 6 people editing it, its not just myself.
