    hi, im new here, some months ago i´ve read about a hack for the gx1 but there was no much information, i tried to find more about it but didnt found enough information, the main interest i have for doing the hack is using high iso on video, can the gx1 hack make it like the gh1?

    Yes, there is a hack.

    You can get it here

    The quality of the hack depends on what SD card you have.

    I use Sanity 5.1 on my Lumix G3.


    Once you load the firmware into PTool, click "A" on the bottom of PTool and add the Sanity file that you get.


    The reason I choose Sanity is because it's great quality and it works with a large selection of SD cards.

    GX1 Video Hack... I don't see a difference...

    I was hoping that the Sanity 5.1 Hack would make a difference in image quality... i.e. no blocky mud.

    Did you see a difference.

    I have done several out door tests using... multiple settings but I see no difference... I suppose if it was a game changer that everybody would be talking about it, especially since the GX1 is under $300. Also I can't record in MP4 even with a card that writes 95mb/s...

    Please let me know your experience with the hack. Good? Bad? Nothing? What settings did you use?

    I also tried cake, but that didn't even let me see the files on or off the computer.
