The changed encryption on this latest firmware means Magic Lantern will likely not be able to crack it open and explore, and will instead dump the original firmware to investigate a fix - any fix may only be compatible with that one.

Can you roll back to previous version?

yeah which might also mean newer camera's are going to get shipped with a newer firmware version. So these first batches might be a unicorn.

That's why I am holding off on updating my R5. Who knows, my second R5 might arrive soon, with FW 1.1 pre-installed.

Requirements for me to update from 1.0.0 is to have certainty on the following points:

1. Battery Pull still works as in 1.0.0, that means, all the time as in my 100+ minutes 8K test.

2. FAT32 formatted SD still works.

3. MP4 chunks and file system are still perfectly readable as in my test on 1.0.0

4. EF glass works as good or better as on 1.0.0. So no 'planned obsolescence' funny business.

5. Some points I am forgetting to mention.
