interested in a 50D initial port of Magic Lantern ?

Hi,

I'm very surprised by the interest about the 500D port of Magic Lantern, that's great: congratulations to Alins, Chuchin, Coutts and others developers! I generated the stubs before 550D release and it also indirectly helped to find 2010's keys.

Provided that I'll have no time to maintain 50D code (and do not own this camera), I can eventually at least generated 50D stubs and consts files.
Is there any interest about it ? I'll initial provide support to any developer.

Of course 600D/T3i and 1100D/T3 are my top priority, but they are not yet available.

I have access to two 50Ds so I can test ML on them.
If I have time maybe I can help to develop it also...
Is there a dumper or anything?
I didn't know any 50D development...

You can make you own dumper using the Dump_toolkit posted in this forum.

Thank you!

Edit:
Finally I've made a working dumper.  :)

I might have access to a 50d. Chuchin would I use that to dump the firmware and just port from the 5d ML?

Hi,

Please find stubs and consts files for 50D 1.0.7.
Most values should be OK, but some should be checked, see comments.

see how they are used for 60D :
https://bitbucket.org/arm_indy/magic-lantern-for-60d/src/4a8260f5e582/stubs-60d.108.S
https://bitbucket.org/arm_indy/magic-lantern-for-60d/src/4a8260f5e582/consts-60d.108.h
https://bitbucket.org/arm_indy/magic-lantern-for-60d/src/4a8260f5e582/60d-hack.c

I do not have access to such camera.

chuchin emailed me a fir file that might set the bootflag, he wasn't sure. i'm afraid to test at the moment as it's my roomate's camera and I can't just be careless like it's my own.

if it sets the boot flag successfully though, then someone just needs to sit down and stat plugging numbers :)

why not directly port ML to 50D and try your own code ?

breaking a camera is very unlikely if you're respect these rules:
- remove the battery when having a doubt
- do to write value anywhere in ram, because you might set value in FLASH (ff800000 or f8000000).

it it would have been dangerous, a lot of ML devs would had already broke several cameras...

now that stubs and consts files are available the biggest work is done (except understand a bit ML and its build process).

I've tried to test Chuchin's fir but it didn't work at all. I couldn't make it run.
The camera refuses the .fir even if I properly sign it.
Tomorrow he will make another .fir based on Indy's stub and I will try it.

Coutts: You can try it, nothing will happen...

Indy: Could you make a .fir file?
