The HDSLR Wiki shows you how to enable 24p native recording and higher AVCHD bit-rates on the Panasonic GH1 without any fuss.
A few notes on the GH1 firmware situation as it stands right now.
Today Panasonic have released a official firmware update, version 1.32
Progress continues on the new GH1 custom firmware by Vitaliy K or ‘tester13’ as he’s know in the community.
The developer has succeeded in enabling native 24p 1080p recording to the SD card. However the native 24p files cannot be played back on the camera yet. Previously the GH1 recorded 24p 1080p in a 60i stream, which needed pulldown and reverse telecline to get the native 24p stream back out before editing footage.
With his understanding of the GH1’s deepening, Vitaliy has also got some useful insights into how the camera works and why it is designed the way it is – including how the GH1’s sensor is scanned, more on that later in the article.

With the firmware programming tools now available, various GH1 owners have been tinkering with the camera. EOSHD has been keeping a close watch on early developments.
Tools have become available to reverse engineer the Panasonic GH1’s firmware and to create custom camera features, much like the Magic Lantern hack for the 5D Mark II.
“indistinguishable” – Rick McCallum
In an interview with Cinema 5D at NAB, the Star Wars producer revealed that the Canon 5D Mark II was used for footage in Lucasfilm’s new movie Red Tails starring Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard and written by George Lucas. Philip Bloom was behind the B camera.
