Re: I thought third party batteries didn't work for the G1?

Thanks for replying. So I guess I didn't get this firmware. What does this firmware do? (not that I plan to get it)

Like the subject line says, I didn't think you could use other batteries for the G1. I just got an 11.00 (u.s.) battery on Ebay and it works fine. Is it because I didn't do some sort of firmware? Or is it for the GH1?

Firmware revision 1.3 blocks many third party batteries from working.
Some been updated now to be usable regardless.
