QMK Toolbox supports the following bootloaders:

And the following ISP flashers:

  • AVRISP (Arduino ISP)
  • USBasp (AVR ISP)

If there's an interest in any others, they can be added if their commands are known.

HID Console

The Toolbox also listens to HID messages on usage page 0xFF31 and usage 0x0074, compatible with PJRC's hid_listen.

If you have CONSOLE_ENABLE = yes in your keyboard's, you can print messages with xprintf(), useful for debugging:

See the QMK Docs for more information.



When using the QMK Toolbox on Windows, it will prompt at first run to install the necessary drivers.

If you run into any issues with "Device not found" when flashing, then you may need to use Zadig to fix the issue.


Windows and macOS versions are available, and you can get the latest release here.

For Homebrew users, it is also available as a Cask:
