You want a free USB tethering solution for the K-1? Do something about it!

If you are looking for a free Pentax K-1 tethering solution via USB cable you can and should take the responsibility and help the author of pktriggercord, who is willing to try his best to add the K-1 but needs support
Support by testing.

Communication is via Github:

By support, what do you mean? Code contributions?

No, primarily it is just testing, since he has no K-1, so somebody must provide regular detailed test feedback.

But it seems someone else also collaborated with him previously, so - since it is open source - anyone with development skills could help him even better.
