Any success with third party batteries?

I've only just read about Panasonic cameras having firmware that blocks the use of third party batteries. Most of the searches I've done lead to websites selling batteries so I haven't found out much else about this issue.

I'd like to know if there has been a successful attempt by a third party manufacturer of batteries to circumvent the firmware that blocks their use. I'm particularly interested in the GF3 and Gx1, if either accepts third party batteries.
