The patch modify the camera software (firmware).
The main goal is to get a better compression modifying the parameters of the AVCHD codec (data-rate, GOPS) that the camera use. This allows better picture in many circumstances.
Its also unlock some functions, like allowing higher ISO values (limited to 3200 ISO for video) or making possible to record PAL and NTSC with the same camera.
However I agree with Jason. Learn to manage the camera and learn what you can do and what you can't with your camera before thinking about hacking it. The codec is just one (important) factor, but you can get a crap of picture withe best codec on the world if you don't know to manage the camera.

I bough my GH2 three weeks ago and and I have everything ready and tested for the patch (in fact I have it ready before to buy he camera) but I gonna take my time before I patch it. I shoot video since 25 years ago but I've never done so with an still camera and I have many things to learn.
