TADA68

A compact 65% keyboard.

Keyboard Maintainer: QMK Community
Hardware Supported: TADA68 PCB
Hardware Availability: kbdfans, kbdist

Make example for this keyboard (after setting up your build environment):

make tada68:default

See build environment setup then the make instructions for more information.

Firmware Format

Out of the box the tada68 uses a .bin firmware file instead of a .hex like other custom keyboards. By default QMK will build and copy the correct .bin file for you. If for some reason you need a hex file instead, you can add :hex to your make command, or look inside qmk_firmware/.build to find the hex file.

Flashing Instructions (Win)

Read all the instructions, there are a few warnings of things to avoid doing to avoid bricking your Tada68. It is much too easy to do!

  1. from the qmk_firmware\ directory run:
$ make tada68:default:flashbin
  1. Connect your keyboard to Windows computer, hit the reset button on the TADA, the lights will start flashing.

  2. You'll see a new drive on your computer called TADA68. Backup the original factory FLASH.BIN file thats inside it.

  3. Delete FLASH.BIN from the TADA drive and copy tada68_default.bin that was generated at the root of the qmk directory into the TADA drive.

  4. Do not eject the USB device. Hit ESC on the keyboard. The lights will stop flashing and your firmware is loaded!

Flashing Instructions (Mac)

When flashing the keyboard from a Mac, you must delete some files that are automatically created by the operating system in order to prevent bricking your keyboard.
