Installing Magic Lantern on a 60D Issue

Issue #1155 resolved
Former user created an issue

Hello everyone,

I am new to Magic Lantern and I am very excited to test out this firmware, but I am having issues installing and I cannot seem to figure out what the problem is. When I go to upgrade the firmware the screen goes black and my camera's light next to the SD card slot flashes. I am following the tutorials provided exactly, but I cannot find the issue. I have the latest firmware.

The only thing I can think of that I am doing differently is not having an external card reader, my card reader is internal, but I do not see how that would cause an issue. Another problem may be my SDHC card, it says its a SDHC I? I'm not sure if that is a problem.

I have a Canon 60D with the 1.1.0 Firmware. My SDHC card is a Sandisk Extreme 16gb

Here is my workflow: -Low level format of SDHC -Clear all settings on camera -Put everything in the ML folder onto the root of my SDHC -Launch the Firmware Update

This is when the screen goes black.. If anyone knows what I am doing wrong, please let me know. Hopefully it is a simple fix. Thanks!

    I'd like to add: Do the update 1.1.0 from the Canon website even if you have version 1.1.0 already with your new camera.
