Files collection to enter Debug Mode

Salam Pentaxians,

Some times, and in certain conditions we need to make hardware or software modifications in our cameras, it’s a bit like rooting android phone or jailbreak an *phone
Here is a collection of required files to enter Debug Menu.

Available files are for following models : K5 / K01 / K5 II / K5 IIs / K30 / K50 / K500 / K3 / K3 II / KS1 / KS2 / KP / K1 / K1 II


Disclaimer : I am not responsible for any damage that may occur to your equipment. Continue at your own risk.

Steps to follow :
1- Dowload related file to your model
2- Unzip file
3- Put both develop and xxxxxxxx.xxx files into root of your SD card ( x = number)
4- Put SD card in camera (surely you will say ), for cameras with 02 positions put it in slot 1
5- Let card door open and power on camera.
6- A menu will appear showing Development Menu, number of pages will varie according to camera model.
There is a plenty of tests and informations,
If you want that menu appears each time you power on your camera without opening card door then select : Debug mode on <Yes> . Otherwise select <No>
7- To validate and leave debug menu press OK
8- Now you can close card door
9- It will take time to return to camera system ( less than 30 seconds)
10- In camera menu settings a new page will appear
11- You can disable Debug mode from that page or from first page of Development Menu
12- In some tests of fonctions of Debug Mode, the only way to leave pending operation or black screen is to power Off Camera


Main duties of Debug mode for commun man :
1- Additional range to ajust Autofocus
2- Change region code ( language)
3- Export and import data for used lens ( to activate screw drive autofocus with some SDM lenses)
4- See shutter count


Don’t try to update lens ROM if you are not an expert, you may brick your lens

UPDATE : As I tested files only on K30/K50/K3/K3 II , please confirm if it's working for other models

I for one would not download files from a member who had just joined. A very naive post Fayssal.

FWIW I did download one of the zip files, for the K-5. The zip contains two files, one called DEVELOP.MOD which is an empty file, the other is 00077430.505 which is a text file containing a single instruction, "[OPEN_DEBUG_MENU]" ... all perfectly harmless. As to whether they work or not and what can be achieved with them ... I feel the need for a little more instruction before proceeding further, however, this particular file contains nothing of any danger to a computer

Hi photogem,

Thank you for files.

First time I needed to enter K50 debug mode I searched for more than 4 hours to find its files in a german forum, so I decided to make it faster and easier for Pentax community.

Regards,
Fayssal
