GF1 won't load hack
  • Hi, just got myself another GF1, and ofcourse want to change some things. I have done hacks on two GF1's in the past, but I guess I'm doing something wrong. Downloaded pTool 3.6.6.0 and the Panasonic firmware GH1__132.bin Freshly in-camera formatted SanDisk 2GB Extreme III SD card, copy the hacked bin file to the root, insert in the camera, 'no valid picture to play' instead of the first menu of the hack procedure. The two other camera's behave the same.

    Please help!

  • Read PTool topic and wiki FAQ. It is always same things.

  • Thanks, but I did. Tried different SD card, different GF1's. Please assist!

  • You did not read. You have GF1 then you need to download GF1 firmware not the GH1.

  • Thank you, yskunto. I am glad you DID read properly and pointed me to the light switch. :-)
