Hey man we talked on reddit. How is it that your screen on the camera display is a white screen but mine looks sort of like a black screen with yellow boxes?

I have my card(s) formatted in exFAT, the update doesn't work with that file system apparently :(

Thanks a lot for sharing this info. I've been using my camera for almost 3 years now and I could never risk upgrading the firmware till now. I had this video bookmarked for so long. I just want to add one small thing, even if your firmware shows 1.0.9 upgrade it to 1.0.9 by downloading the file from the canon website. Magic Lantern user manual has specifically mentioned it. And always keep your camera on P mode while upgrading your firmware! Awesome stuff :)

If you have the black screen problem scroll down and read reecord2's comment. It worked for me! Thank you sooooo much!!!!!

When I try to make this work with my t2i, the screen just goes black and a red light flashes. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? And since YouTube blows balls now and you can't reply unless you have google plus (lol) here's my email. [email protected] I'd appreciate any help.

I had the same problem and Im sure you've already fixed it or tried this (its kinda for anyone who hasn't), but I was in the wrong mode. I thought he said you could be in manual (M) but I found I had to be in (P). If that doesn't work, my friend went to the cannon website and downloaded the newest version, then tried again and it worked for her. If that doesn't work id suggest taking out the battery and delete the software. It is on the card so there won't be anything wrong with your camera. Hope this helps, if not, sorry!

Hey I really liked your video opened my eyes.. I'm actually going to get this now.. My only worry is that I saw some options say not to click them.. is there a place where I can learn how to control these finite options

Hey man, I know this is a very old video, but I just saw it right now, and I was wondering if you could tell me, does ML unlock the ISOs? I mean does the ISOs unlock to incremental 1/3 stops?
didair (6 years ago)
There's a "night build" for the T3 available on MLs website.

If you camera just flashes a red light then you need to go to the Canon website and download their Canon 1.0.9 firmware and problem solved
linusSk8ing86 (6 years ago)
download page isn't the same for me
Almost Rocket Science (6 years ago)
Try taking out the battery
MegaCharlieUnicorn (6 years ago)
Hey I tried this and my camera just flashed red, looking at the comments I saw the same problem, I tried turning it off as your Roy quote suggested and it still flashed red even when it was off, turning it on has done nothing either
Emiliano Colombo (6 years ago)
Why when i download ML 2.3 i have not the same files?
rob burkhardt (6 years ago)
I watched another video on how to install this that did not provide as complete instructions. Consequently I no longer have a working camera. Is there any way to reload cannon's firmware or will I need to send it in?
Illuminatesteele (6 years ago)
Thank you for your post! Your directions were alot easier than other posts : )
Almost Rocket Science (6 years ago)
ML lives on the SD card not on the camera, so your have to reinstall it on every sd card you have.
Almost Rocket Science (6 years ago)
Go to the format menu, press Q once then format your card. Your back to normal

Thanks for this dude, finally took the plunge!!!!
Yasser Sana (6 years ago)
The download link is not the same as your video and I downloaded the complete package for my D550 and the files look different in names. Is it going to work if I still do the installation ?
Mohamed Shoukry (6 years ago)

TheUnbelievableEye (6 years ago)
When I put my card in the camera and update the firmware it's only flash red. What do I have to do?
raredreamfootage (6 years ago)
So there is no need to enable the bootflag in a separate step anymore?
wonderwall135 (6 years ago)
shoulda bought a mac. or just a card reader
Peizxcv (6 years ago)
Does ML also improves still image IQ? Things like JPEG engine, noise reduction? Very impressive work BTW, I wish Canon have SDK available for people.

thanks this helped me alot, i was freaking out so much and i didnt know what to do. Thank you!
reecord2 (6 years ago)
Yeah, mine got stuck like that too, I turned it off a few times in the middle of it and everything was fine, so you should be fine too.
tonywjuice (6 years ago)
please help, mine is doing the black thing, can I turn it off while its doing this so i can do the instructions youve listed above?
FencinGrl23 (7 years ago)
Wat if its taking a long time to restart!
Chris Eastman (7 years ago)
Unfortunately, Magic Lantern doesn't work on 7D and probably won't anytime soon.
Fawzi Yahya (7 years ago)
Contrast, saturation and sharpness don't show up for me in the menu..? Any idea why?
GOGOJESUZ (7 years ago)
im confused at why people think ML can hurt your camera .. it doesnt install into the camera like the reg firmware ... the oct 21 build of ML .. boots from your SD card .. once u take the SD card out ...ML isnt on your camera anymore ... i jus loaded ML on to all my class 10 memory cards and use it accordingly
john3Va (7 years ago)
Does this effect your warranty in any way ... i mean does it cancel it ?
Canal Nostalgia (7 years ago)
Thanks a lot man, that was exactly what happened with my camera, I get the new firmware from Canon's site and it worked!
Lo' Kuntry (7 years ago)

Lisa Erhard (7 years ago)

PhotoTech (7 years ago)
Thanks i figured it out and its working perfectly, i love magic lantern!
Jeff Lopez Photography (7 years ago)
Thank you so much for this suggestion! Like many people I had a black screen with the blinking red light. As kindly suggested by @reecord2, I went back to the main canon website (even though I already had the current firmware) I re-downloaded it and installed (1.0.9) over the existing 1.0.9. After that magic lantern installed flawlessly just like the video with no black screen. Thanks again @reecord2 for the suggestion
reecord2 (7 years ago)
ugh it won't let me paste a link but google 'canon t2i firmware 1.0.9' and click that first link, install it even if you already have 1.0.9
PhotoTech (7 years ago)
can you give me the link to the software update on canons site please
reecord2 (7 years ago)
I had this problem, and I FIXED IT, I want to spread the word, might work for you: go to canon's website and download the latest firmware. I already had 1.0.9, and you probably do too, but apparently the one on Canon's site is a newer 'build.' At any rate, I downloaded 1.0.9 from canon's site, installed it over the 1.0.9 firmware already in my camera, and THEN did this video's tutorial, and ML finally installed. I can't promise this will work, but worth a shot.
reecord2 (7 years ago)
Me too, black screen and flashing red light.
b3arodactyl (7 years ago)
OMG me too, what's with it?
b3arodactyl (7 years ago)
idk what you're talking about dude. mine is screwed up and does a black screen and IDK what to do but contrast and saturation? idk bout that
b3arodactyl (7 years ago)
ikr same
b3arodactyl (7 years ago)
I got a black screen with red light flashing (indicating that its reading the memory card...) It's a transcend class 10 card if that matters (which I assume it doesn't)
Jan Dominik (7 years ago)
Hello, I hit ok on update and the screen stays black too... For how long does it take? Or what I have to do now? What's wrong?
