Did you follow the steps from the install guide? (including those in Troubleshooting section)

Yes i thought i followed the instructions, as per you troubleshooting, i also tried turning it on without a card, and with a card that didnt have ML onto it.

I may not have 'Restore your camera to default settings (Clear all camera settings, from Wrench 3 menu)' after firmware update/before putting ML onto the card....

If thats what i have done is there any way of saving it?

What happened when you ran "firmware update" ? (describe as detailed as possible)

Did you try to remove the battery? Is it charged? Are all the doors properly closed?

Not sure if this is a bug or if I'm just doing it wrong (I'll consult the manual when I get home from work).

I've got the first version with manual exposure. It seems that silent pictures aren't working? You take the picture and it displays the result on the screen, but if you then review pictures it doesn't seem to save it to the memory card.

Yes, HDR bracketing is still working.

Not sure if this is a bug or if I'm just doing it wrong (I'll consult the manual when I get home from work).

I've got the first version with manual exposure. It seems that silent pictures aren't working? You take the picture and it displays the result on the screen, but if you then review pictures it doesn't seem to save it to the memory card.

The pictures are saved in a with a .422 suffix so that the camera doesn't recognize them in the DCIM/***CANON folder and they have to be converted using the 422-jpg.py script (https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/raw/b98d038b4b09/src/422-jpg.py or Windows .exe https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/downloads/422-jpg-v2.exe)

BTW, I was not able to convert silent pics, it gives me an error that the file size is unknown (Alex?):
Code: [Select]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/422-jpg.py", line 136, in <module>

Yet the number of bytes is exactly the same for both...
I will run a diff.
How many different versions are there?
So far I've counted 5.
Confusing to users!

The files are identical.  Did I download the same file twice?
How does downloading the same file solve your problem?
