I refer to an earlier post and discussion, I thought mentioning Magic Lantern here is unorthodox :
Why nobody is saying anything about it now ?

BTW, there have been some suggestions (or may be hearsay only) that there are a lot of bad things about ML. What experience do you ML users have about these bad things ?

Hi Peter, I used both EOS utility (your suggested method)and ML on card to roll back Firmware 1.3.3 to 1.2.3 and 1.1.3 tp my 5D3. Both successful.
No bad things happened. Followed the instruction strictly and you should have no problem.

Peter. Thanks for sharing your experience. Yes I agreed ML is not a fully developed thing. Beta versions are coming out to improve and new features are also added. There may be a few not so good things (bad ? to some) but there are some innovative features beyond somebody's imagination.
I have never experience your mentioned problems on my T3i, M, 60D (all sold) It's okay on my 5d3 (X2) and T4i. A few times when I did not operate according to specs, the camera may freeze and I just have to remove the battery and re-insert and it's back to normal. No big deal.
Loading ML is less stressful than updating firmware. But this is just my feeling. I have done this over fifty times (my own experiments and for friends) and all works.
Magic Lantern is not for beginners. Learning your own cameras first. Not all added features will be useful to you. Stick to Canon original and do not install ML even if you have 1% doubt.
