An ergonomic 60% keyboard.
Keyboard Maintainer: Felipe Coury
Hardware Supported: TGR Alice
Hardware Availability: Group buy finished
Make example for this keyboard (after setting up your build environment):
ps2avrGB keyboard firmware
This keyboard uses the port of the QMK firmware for boards that are based on the ps2avrGB firmware.
Note that this is a complete replacement for the firmware, so you won't be using Bootmapper Client to change any keyboard settings, since not all the USB report options are supported.
First, install the requirements. These commands are for OSX, but all you
need is the AVR toolchain and
bootloadHID for flashing:
$ brew cask install crosspack-avr $ brew install --HEAD https://raw.githubusercontent.com/robertgzr/homebrew-tap/master/bootloadhid.rb $ pip install pyusb
Then, with the keyboard plugged in, simply run this command from the
$ make alice $ bootloadHID -r alice_default.hex
Setting the board to bootloader mode
Hold the ESC key (the one before the 1! key, in case you remaped it).
From my experience, it's really hard to brick these boards. But these tricks have been useful when it got stuck in a weird scenario.
- Try plugging the board in while holding the bootloader key. This will force it to boot only the bootloader without loading the firmware. Once this is done, just reflash the board with the original firmware.
- Sometimes USB hubs can act weird, so try connecting the board directly to your computer or plugging/unplugging the USB hub.
