View Full Version : Hackable GH1 Confusion

So I've definitely made the decision to get a GH1 after comparing all the options in my price range (which is admittedly very small). It's either this or a Sony Bloggie. :no: (I'm kidding, sort of.)

But now I'm getting confused over which ones are hackable. I know older models definitely are. But I thought I read somewhere that they'd figured out a hack for all models, regardless of manufacture date. Now I can't find that info.

Basically, I've found two GH1s for sale right now. One is used from KEH, in EX+ condition, for ~$350 (no lens). The other is on ebay, from an individual, and is already hacked for $375. The issue with that one is that it has a crack in the hinge for the LCD, which leaves me wondering if it's been abused. But, it's already hacked, so I don't have to worry about whether or not it's hackable.

Can someone who knows for sure clarify whether all GH1s are now hackable or not? I've tried searching here and elsewhere but can't seem to find a definitive answer.

Thanks!

Never mind. I found the answer by searching for "unhackable GH1" instead of "hackable gh1"... So it looks like the hack now works for any GH1. Here's the link: http://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16/official-gh1-lenin-hack-project-discussion/p3
