Screw Drive Mod for DA* on K5 or K30?

There is a well known (now) firmware modification for the DA*16-50mm lens but so far, I know of no way to transfer the edited firmware to the lens on the K5 or K30.

Is that still the situation? Has anyone found a way to access the lens firmware via the K5 or K30?

I believe that PK Tether can put the K-5 into debug mode.

Unfortunately I don't have access to a Windows machine that I'm free to install software on.
