Pentax Kr after latest firmware update

I have found that I have FF flashing on the screen when I fitted my Cosina 55mm f1.2 lens and shutter button will not fully depress and live view will not open either - has anyone else had this sort of problem? and is there any way of reverting to previous firmware???????????????

Your settings may have gotten reset as a result of the upgrade.

Yes. Updating to the latest firmware will reset many, but not all, customization. For example, I have a fine focus adjustment set on my camera. It didn't remove that adjustment, but the update switched the mode to not use this adjustment. You almost have to go through every menu after update to see what did or did not change.
