K-1 & Back Focus Button

I've been playing around with my K-1 so that I can use the back focus button. I want to set it so that I can focus then refocus. I know it's a little different on the K-5, & K-3ll. Anyone have the bugs worked out on the K-1?

What exactly are you trying to get it to do? The button itself works just like before (default to AF on, customizable to AF-off or AF-on with half-press disabled).

I found the link I was looking for on how to do it here: Perfect Focus Every time

I had found the instructions on Page 98 of the K-1 Manual, but my brain just couldn't figure it out.

Can one disable the main shutter pressed halfway autofocus?
I do not find it in the manual and the menu. Seems the shutter is a an AF button always active?!? Any insights? Thanks in advanced!
