The way it works, if you go through the websites, is you make a small donation, then download his firmware and install it.

Not quite. You download a program (ptool) which will patch YOUR firmware (which you have to download from Panasonic). Once patched, YOU install the patched version of the firmware on your camera.

There are many options in what/how you patch your firmware. But there is NOT a patched version of firmware available for download. Mainly for legal reason, I understand.

Oh, and downloading ptool is FREE. No donation required, unless you want to contribute to the effort.

Thanks for explaining that much better.
