* '''Very important:''' remove the battery after each test run. Sometimes the tasks are not properly shutdown when it enters power save mode, leading to the CPU to stay in a tight loop and run down your battery.
 
* Copy the <tt>magiclantern.fir</tt> file to the root directory on the CF card
 
* Select "Updated firmware" from the menu
 
* Camera reboots directly into LiveView mode
 
* You must reload the firmware after every powersave event or card removal
