How to record with Super Takumar 1.4/50 (M42) on FULL MANUAL

[EDIT: This issue was fixed with the latest firmware update, v1.04]

This is a non-scripted video on how to trick the K01 into recording a M42/screwmount lens, the Super Takumar 1.4/50, in full manual mode. I believe this trick may work with any k01, since my camera is not special by any means; and it may also work with any Pentax DSLR...I would really like to get some feed back from other people trying this trick on their different Pentax DSLRs.
I must also say that my English is not great, and the video quality is from my Nokia sucks
Anyways, I hope everyone all the best in trying this trick, and as always have a good day.

Another test:

Have you tried with the new firmware (v1.04) - I expect you won't need any tricks, my personal testing with a full manual K-mount 50 f2 lens showed no sign of the hated ISO/Gain auto function.

I just posted this thread after reading your thread. LOL.
Yup, the new firmware fixes this problem.
