Help needed investigating K-S1/2 firmware


As you may have noticed, K-S1's debug menu now is open.

@bootcoder did the most valuable work. He is a true genius .
I did the testing with my K-S1 because he doesn't own one.

But now we are facing a problem that I don't dare to resolve. Older cams like my K20D do execute the command but the K-S1 magically is refusing the specific and well documented instruction. Actually it's a DSP-ROM dump. Here it comes to trial and error.

I fear that the necessary software commands/instructions and steps could be logged inside the camera, so that I will lose warranty.
I'm convinced these instructions are non destructive because bootcoder knows well what he is doing. But there's always a certain risk.

So, please contact bootcoder via private message if your are willing to help and your camera is out of garantee.

Best regards
