As noted, both camera and lenses have separate firmware.  The latest GH1 (I own one) firmware is 1.3

The 14-42X lens will work with the GH1, but you will have not have the upgraded displays in the viewfinder such as zoomed focal length, and of course, only the G5 and GH3 have the function switch to operate the zoom on the camera.  You will have to use the lens switch to operate the power zoom.

These are minor luxuries.  The X lens will work on the GH1 just fine.  No guarantees on shutter shock.
