I have about 20 builds in my laptop. With this build you can navigate the menus. https://bitbucket.org/Chuchin/magic-lantern-500d/downloads/20110125_500d.7z it only has to be compile. The other builds are crashing my camera mostly because I'm writing my own code. I'm learning alot with every mistake.

thank you very much chuchin.

I have started creating a dev environment on my laptop because i definitely want to play with your build. in my opinion being able to boot and navigate the menu's is the first step in finally getting more out of 500d.

in my humble opinion i still believe we should get all these code in some sort of version control, either be ML official 500d branch or some other place (not my call but if there's a choice i vote for ML 500d branch). The more eyeballs on the code the faster we can get more people involved and hopefully have a firmware release

Is there any good guides for getting it to compile? I am using cygwin with the yagarto-bu-2.19.1_gcc-4.4.2 as well as Slurp but am not having success in getting everything to compile right. Guess I'll have to wait for someone to upload a compiled build.

i got the code to compile (make fews minor changes to the Makefile, some of the options didn't match my ubuntu env) with one error at the end

../dumper/enc_upd550.py not found; will not build magiclantern.fir.
Leaving magiclantern.fir unchanged.

where can i find this file ?.Or i don't need it?.
for now i'm going to use magiclantern.fir from ML 500d branch, see if i can get the menu's working

pat_loonytoon: i attached here the autoexec.bin that i compiled and used in case you want to play with it. as i said, you can see and navigate the menu's but the majority of them don't work yet.

Not able to figure out how to bring up the menu, picture style button in live view just moves the white focus box around, is it mapped to a different button?

Hello everyone!

I have to thank chuchin for his work, finally my dream come true.

The process to install this firmware hack is the same like ML for 550D?

Thank You in advance for the answers. :)

yes, the process to install this is exactly like for 550d.

pat_loonytoon: i haven't tried the menu in live view.
