Is it possible to export a working calibration firmware?

Hi guys,

I have a bad 16-50mm, it is not returned to the seller, to be checked by Pentax.

Maybe they will ask me to bring my K10d for calibration + the 16-50mm. The thing is, i Need my K10D ! I cannot wait 1 month without it. So my question is:

is it possible to calibrate the lens with another K10D (at the pentax service center for example), and then, export that firmware to a Cd, and then, when i'll receive the lens + cd, i'll just have to update my k10d with that particular firmware?

Will that work???

no idea.

however, there have been some crafty people online (Russians i think) who have hacked into the K10D firmware and been able to access the Front/Backfocus adjustments if you're willing to try it on your own later.
