There are as many alternative firmwares for the K-30 as there are for comparable Nikon, Sony or Olympus bodies

There are no alternative firmwares for the K-30, just like there are none for Nikon, Sony or Olympus. It's Canon that has stuff like Magic Lantern and CHKDK.

There are small hacks around for enabling debug mode in some Pentax cameras, to adjust AF, turn off DFS etc, but that's about it.

Several threads in this forum discuss all these issues, eg:

None, but if you'd like to customize your camera, send it to me and I'll send you back a brand new K-50 with some goofy colors
