I noticed he took the links out for an E-M5 hack - anyone know what that entailed before it was removed? Or did i miss it there on the blog?

I'll consider it if it offers something I like.

I've hacked my 400D previously, and can't stand running my iPad or iPhone without a jailbreak, so I have no issue giving it a crack - as I said though, only if it has something I want...

I agree that I will consider it if something compelling gets added. It is encouraging that someone is taking a swing at hacking the firmware. I know the GH2 hack was pretty popular, and if they can get something stable out there for the EM-1 that offers some compelling new features (I'm mostly interested in better 1080p video), then that would be awesome.

Pirate software, no thanks!
Listen to the authorities. They tell you the boot crushing your throat is for collective security. Pay no attention to the darkening of your vision. Authority figures know best, listen to them and shut off all regions of your brain that allow for critical thought or they will shut them off for you. This is for the greater good of the authorities.


...But in seriousness: I hope some improvements come along for the E-M5. IBIS for video is awesome. Olympus video quality isn't awesome. At least it will be get closer to something "beyond just acceptable" for the E-M1 users now.

I always had MagicLantern on my Canon bodies and would love to see something for Olympus.

What ML has done for Canon is to introduce features it seemed Canon didn't think of - which in time appeared in the mainstream firmware. These hacks show what can be done with the right team and motivation.
