Pentax K5 high fps video

I read somewhere about this firmware hack that unlocks full hd 60, 75 and 100fps video.
Is this true?

This option would come in handy filming sports in slow motion.

If it did you'd only get a couple minutes of video before hitting the 4gb file size limit.

That's not really a problem. I would only need it for 10-20s short clips.

When you say "this firmware hack", did you mean to link something for us to reference? Or are you asking about a rumor?

I'm mostly just asking about the rumor. I read about it somewhere but I can't recall where.

I haven't heard about a high FPS rumor, but I had heard about a magic lantern hack attempt on the k-5, but it went nowhere about 2 years ago and they dropped that project.
