K-5 1.01 Firmware file needed for figuring out entering debug menu

Hi, can somebody send me a K-5 1.01 firmware file? The current 1.15 firmware seems encrypted, I wanna try earlier firmware. (I've heard somebody have found out the name of the MODSET file is "%08d.%03d" (this is not the actual name of the file) but I can't locate that in the 1.15 firmware.
I have figured out how to downgrade K10D from 1.31 (same idea can be used on other model)
Thanks a lot!

As far as I know, the only way to enter the DEBUG menu on the K-5 is via PK-Tether. The MODSET method has not been achieved, to my knowledge.
