    Great news from Vitaliy, he finished dumping the new V1.34 firmware from previously unhackable GH1 and confirmed that there is no such thing as unhackable GH1 anymore. I hope I can soon change the Japanese menu to English from my previously unhackable GF1. More Info

    That's good news from my point of view as well. But is he even planning to try to hack the "unhackable" GF1?

    Yes, I would love to use third party batteries, any news there?

    Russki hackers are cool.
    I'm wondering if there'll be a sudden withdrawal of 'for sale' new-firmware-GH1s by their reinvigorated owners, or at least a price rise.

    Does the hack include any improvements other than video?

    I'm hoping that the GH1 v1.34 have lots of similarities with GF1 v1.24 so the new hack will also work for GF1. Frankly my interest is only in changing menu language to english, well and maybe 3rd party batteries.

    I did consider to sell my unhackable GF1 before, but with this good news I think it's best to wait for the new hack.

    My understanding is the new hack, at least initially will not have new features, only the ability to downgrade your firmware hackable v1.32 in GH1.

    Third party batteries for the GF1 aren't a problem......

    My Japanese GF1 is talking to me in English now :smile: Even though I felt that having it in Japanese is cool, I'm surely more comfortable with English. So many new settings :lol:

    LOL, hi Borat :smile: Congratulation as well.

    Even thought I'm not into video, I tried the video hack as well...and was amazed by the difference. Maybe I'll shoot video time to time afterall :smile:
