Pre-1953/52 models and Rolleicords have a simple system to catch the back and 
to take it off, you only need to put the back horizontal raising it keeping 
this position and then pushing the back to the left, it will be released to the 
right side (the camera back facing you); to attach the back again first insert 
it to the left side. Newer 'flex models have a little lever to release the 
back.

Writing from memory, I think the MX has a normal "universal" thread for shutter 
cable release, the shutter button release has a safety mechanism to block it, 
perhaps your camera lost some piece or the locking device is on, anyway I never 
heard about something especial for the MX cable release thread.

The Rolleimeter couldn't be used for Rolleinars, it has means to calibrate for 
the lens real focal length and to infinity only. The parallax could be a 
serious problem too.

Happy new year to all!
