K10D - So debug gone at 1.3? Any way to adjust AF?

The K20D allows you to adjust your AF settings on a lens-type or all-lens basis. I understand that the K10D used to have this "available" as part of the debug mode...which has been disabled at 1.3.

I have three questions:

1. Can you downgrade 1.3 to 1.0 (or whatever version you need to use debug mode)?
2. If you CAN downgrade and make the adjustments, do they stick if you upgrade to 1.3 again?
3. Is there any other way with the K10D to make the AF adjustments? After all, they are available in the K20D without sending the body away to service.

Thanks!

I can't figure why so many things have been removed in the firmware I upgraded from 1.00 to 1.20 as soon as i got it, did I do right ? I've never really had any issues with the autofocus though

Yes. See below for the steps:-

Yes! You can adjust the hardware screw settings which physically change the position of the AF module. But TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK:-
