Debug K5

There is much speculation as to how to access the debug mode in the K5 by storing a file in the SD card,many have sited the code .505 after modset,as in many Pentax DSLRs. But so far it's not been found!
Then I came across this number; 00077430 is this the debug code for the K5?

Maybe it's 00077430.505

I do not know the answer to your question, though this thread might be relevant:

AFAIK the easiest way to get to the debug menu is via pk_tether. Not sure why you'd need to, though.
