A Windows/Linux app to assist with installing Magic Lantern.



  • Make camera bootable over USB (alternative to Magic Lantern's custom .FW files)
  • Get firmware & build version, get shutter actuation count, other info
  • Write memory card boot and script flags (FAT16/32/ExFAT)
  • Clear card flags without reformattting

Long-term roadmap

  • Add shutter counter
  • Display FW and internal build version
  • MacOS port
  • Diagnostic + error reporting

All pull requests/issues are welcome.
