Hacking Pentax Debug mode

I have found how to enter Debug Mode on Pentax K-1 Mark II:

  1. Create on SD card file "00078400.597" with "[OPEN_DEBUG_MENU]" and LF char.
  2. Create on SD card file "DEVELOP.MOD" exact 10 bytes long with binary content:
    For Development Menu 1-6: 07 01 2C 1F 10 03 1E 16 05 2D
    For Development Menu 1-7: 07 1A 02 0A 19 18 1B 1C 05 11
    Use hexeditor to enter these bytes.
  3. Turn off camera, plugin this SD card. Leave card door open. Hold "menu" button and turn camera on.

I have also found how to enter Debug Mode on other Pentax cameras. I would like to discuss about what is possible in debug mode.

PLEASE: do not post messages "debug mode can't this or can't that". This topic is all what debug mode "can".

How can we use it for further hacking?

Pentax K-1 II
