    GH1 and GF1 valid serial range
    #1
    Default
    Edit:- Many Questions are being posted in this thread by people not even reading this first thread. So, here is a summary of Qs.

    1. I have a serial no. XXXX.... Will the Hack work ?
    a) If you have a serial such as a XX9XX.... i.e. 3rd letter is 9. It will work. Otherwise, the following combinations will work. XX0A.... , XX0B.... , XX0C... , XX0D.... , XX0E ....
    XX0F MAY work - but its not worth buying in this range.

    2. I have to buy blind i.e. I cannot see the serial. How can I increase my chances of a hackable body ?
    a. Buy the Gold body, and if not available, buy the Red Body. These are the colors that most people DO NOT buy, and from the posts of people in this thread, they seem to work.

    3. I got a firmware in range - but I could not flash. Can you help me ?
    a. You are making a mistake. Go through the steps again. Have you ticked the appropriate settings in ptool ? Have you actually copied the right firmware on your SDHC card ? Have you pressed the Play button to enable firmware update ?


    In this thread, I will be collecting information about the serials that work and dont work. Hopefully we can collect information and decide the serial no cutoff.

    RESULTS :-

    Look at the serial on the camera.
    Further, it seems that the combo of the 3rd and 4th characters give the year and month.
    0F indicates June 2010
    0G indicates July 2010
    9J indicates October 2009

    In some cases, S seems to be used for September, so
    0S indicates September 2010


    So 0G, 0H, ... will not work
    0F may work

    anything lower than 0F will work and all 9X will work.




    First check the service for the exact firmware version using instructions from this post.
    http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showpost.p...88&postcount=1
    >>>
    Temporary service mode:
    1) Non-empty SD card must be installed
    2) Check that single shot mode is selected.
    3) Before trning on camera press:
    a) DISPLAY+FILM MODE for G1 and GH1
    b) DISPLAY+AE LOCK for GF1, G2, G10
    4) Turn on power.
    You must see ROM BACKUP option in settings menu.

    Error code table in this mode:
    1) Press left arrow + MENU/SET and hold them, plus press
    a) FILM MODE for G1 and GH1
    b) DISPLAY for GF1
    c) AF/AE LOCK for G2 and G10

    If you repeat error code table method one more time for'll be in CAMERA INFO screen.
    Pressing Display will show you CAMERA INFO 2 screen.

    >>>

    If you see version 1.34 for GH1 or 1.24 for GF1 the hack will not work.

    The third number in the serial seems to be the year of manufacture, so 9 will work and 0 may or may not work.

    For GH1 these seem to work
    WE9XXXXXXX

    These may or may not work.
    WE0XXXXXXX

    These may or may not work
    FS0XXXXXXX

    From this post
    http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showpost.p...5&postcount=60
    the new 1.34 firmware started some where in between my WE0FD0012XX and crunchys slightly earlier WE0FD0010XX.

    From this post
    http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showpost.p...5&postcount=84
    WE0FD001041 does not work


    Further, it seems that the combo of the 3rd and 4th characters give the year and month.
    0F indicates June 2010
    0G indicates July 2010

    So 0G, 0H, ... will not work
    0F may work

    anything lower than 0F will work and all 9X will work.


    As an aside, from Vitaliy's post.
    http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showpost.p...6&postcount=45

    First two letters must represent factory and production line.
    As Japan bodies seems to have serials started with F and Chinese ones with W.
    Please post ONLY if you have a serial > than what I have posted. Let us know if the hack works or not.

    you should post not just the serial # but also the DATE when you purchased so that we can correlate the serials to dates and see if there is a correlation
