    I Got a Digital Rebel (300D) yesterday and it has the "Hacked" firmware.
    I have a copy of the Canon 1.1.1 Firmware, and Im sure it will load ok, but a
    Google search turned up a couple of "horror" stories about the camera not
    working right after going back to the original.

    I was wondering if there was a certain way all the features should be set
    before reverting.

    You should reset all settings to original defaults. The original firmware may
    not be able to display and change setting it knows nothing about. I'm sure
    google will turn up more details (I have seen them online).

    BTW I have the hack in my camera and the only reason I'd revert would be to send
    it back to Canon for a repair ... just in case they get snotty. The hack works
    very well.

  3. Heard of only one incident of the firmware *failing* when the batteries
    died midway thru the upgrade.

    All custom functions must be set back to the factory defaults before
    flashing the firmware. Note: you cannot use the RESET option in the menu,
    each CF must be manually reset. Below is a list of default binary values
    from left to right (The bottom numbers in the CF menu):
    0,0,0,0,0,1,0,11,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0

    That way I can set 'em if I need to.
