Re: GH2 Firmware Walkthrough

Hi there.

OK, so you're on a Mac, so hopefully, this will work for you...

1. Download the Mac specific file from the Panasonic website.

2. Unzip the file (if it hasn't done it as part of the download) - you should end up with a file called GH2_V11.bin in your Downloads folder.

3. Format an SD card in your GH2, then copy GH2_V11.bin to the root of your SD card, either via a card reader or by connecting your GH2 to a USB port on your Mac.

4. With the SD card and a fully charged battery in your GH2, turn on your GH2 and press the play button on the back.

5. Press Menu and find "Version" in the Setup menu - this should show that you have V1.0 Firmware installed and a button to Up-Version the Firmware to V1.1.

6. Select Up-Version, follow any instructions, then when it tells you that Up-Version is in progress, do not touch any controls until your GH2 restarts itself.

You should now have Firmware V1.1 installed - format your SD card and you should be hot to trot.

Now the cautionary warning... The above was done from my aging memory, so check the instructions on the Panasonic website to make absolutely sure, but if you can't find them, the above should give you a reasonable guide.

Hope that helps, Dave.
