update: HELL YEAH! It works. Thank you so much MarvinM.

Details for people who perhaps aren't as experienced with computers as me <_<:

once tcctool is installed as explained above put tcctool.exe into your Windows/system32 directory so you can access it via start->Run

Now you can boot any .rom file onto your K3 temporarily (until it's turned off) by running this command from Start->Run

tcctool -d ypk3 YPK3.rom
Where YPK3.rom is whatever the firmware file is called.
for example, put your YPK3.rom into your computer's C drive (in no folder AKA root directory) and type
tcctool -d ypk3 C:\YPK3.rom

Your K3 will show the Samsung logo and boot into the firmware you just loaded.
At this point it should show up in your computer as a removable disc.

Open the disc (If it asks to format - it probably will) format as FAT32, default allocation size, quick format probably doesn't matter, I didn't.

Once formatted, copy your desired firmware on to it along with it's .IMG file. (copy them to it's root directory)

Once you have done this, set your K3 back into recovery mode (by holding the on switch down and pressing reset) and boot a .rom that is OLDER than the one you just copied on to your K3. e.g. 4.03 If you just copied 4.06 or 4.10 to your K3's drive.

Pull the USB cable out when the Samsung logo appears. It will then give you the upgrading firmware message for a minute or so and then turn off.

Congratulations! You've successfully beaten the 3.09 firmware.
