just tested.
works as in 1st post.
But,
in MLU mode, timer beep not syncronised with timing (non-issue)
in MLU mode, 2 flashes, when mirror goes up, & when shutter opens. I assume the 1st 1 is for FEL.

One Shot --- Once focused, will not refocus while the trigger is 1/2 pressed.
AI Servo --- Will continue focusing/tracking the subject. (Good for sports, or for moving subjects.)
AI Focus AF --- The camera choses any 1 of the above as it wishes.

MLU --- Mirror goes up 1st, waits a while, then shutter opens. This reduces blurred images due to camera shake when the mirror goes up & causes vibration. useful for shutter speed ard 1/60 to ard 1sec.

Hallelujah ! I never thought I'll every say this, but I LUV Russians ! Heh heh.... But I think I'll wait a while longer for them to get the AI Servo working first, and maybe add a way to switch metering modes too.

FEC worked since the previous 'version' of the hack.... I've been using it pretty much and it sure is helpful to avoid a very harsh flash effect.

Haven't been able to snap anything in AIservo mode yet, it just refuses to activate when the shutter release is fully pressed.

ISO3200 works but the noise is out of this world!!!

Long time ago, some people laughed at the idea of FEC on the 300D.
Not so long time ago, some people laughed at the idea of focusing selection, & MLU.
Now, people are laughing at selectable metering mode.

i think people would laugh because they are jealous the little eos 300d can be so powerful even as its bigger brother...pay the cheeper price of 300d but still get the goodys of 10D
