Why do you need a hack? Does the DMC-F3 detect whether it's a third-party battery or a Panasonic battery? If you bought an aftermarket battery and plug it in, it won't work?

I have no clue to what you are talking about. I asked you several serious questions. It's unlikely that you will receive any help if you can not describe the problem you are facing in detail.

It�s easy. We need a hacked firmware or maybe some trick to break the protection on the use of 3rd party batteries panasonic has put into all new digital cameras.

I'm not seeing the full picture. It seems that there is a catch-22 problem in this area. The following are facts, based on what I read here:

1. Panasonic has embedded protection algorithm in new digital cameras that prevent you from using third-party batteries.
2. People, such as those who have posted, want to use third-party batteries.

The following are speculations from the above facts and from my experience with digital cameras:

3. There are third-party batteries available for these digital cameras.
4. People have tried these batteries and they don't work.
5. Digital camera batteries aren't interchangeable between most models and surely aren't interchangeable between brands.

So here are my catch-22 questions:

6. Why did third-party manufacturers produce batteries for protected digital cameras?
7. If they did produce these batteries, why didn't they work-around the protection problem?
8. If they didn't produce these batteries, how would the firmware hack help?
