I was able to update my Japanese language GX1 from V1.0 body firmware to V1.1 English language using PTool. The process I went through was as follows:

1. Download PTool and firmware V1.1

2. Use PTool software to open then save firmware with language settings ticked, firmware saved with file name GX1__V10.bin

3. Save to SD card

4. Put in GX1, turn on, press play button, click 'hai' (in Japanses) and update

5. Go to language setting then click on 'nihongo' (in Japanese) then select English

This is all possible. Not sure about how it would work if the firmware was already on V1.1 but from V1.0 it was fine.

Hi, it worked! I am already in version 1.1, so you need to change the version update in pool. Increment of 1 in the dialog box didn't work i.e.. 110 to 111, instead you have to enter 10 which changed the version from 110 to 11A.

Thanks so much!
