Can anyone answer. I'm having problems flashing the newer versions of Alt from either CMD or from QMK Toolbox. I have no problem flashing my old Drop Alt. Doing it from either CMD or QMK toolbox both works. However, with the newer alt. It shows an error. See below. This error is from QMK Toolbox. Note using Mdloader via CMD shows same error. *** Attempting to flash, please don't remove device >>> mdloader_windows.exe -p COM6 -D "C:\Users\Paolo\Desktop\QMK\massdrop_alt_pleasuretek.bin" --restart   Massdrop Loader 1.04       Massdrop Loader Copyright (C) 2018 Massdrop Inc.   This program is Free Software and has ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY       Opening port 'COM6'... Success!   Error: Could not find matching device ID!   Closing port... Success! Since it cannot find the keyboard. The keyboard stays off. You're only able to use the kb again by removing the USB and putting it back on. -- Thus, making the firmware flashing a failure. I'm not sure if this is a problem with most, if not all newer Alt. As I said before, my old Alt is perfect for flashing. Am I missing anything? I'm also using the latest versions of QMK Toolbox and mdloader etc. I also tried pressing the reset button at the bottom of the kb. -- Shows same error. Help?

It seems the new ALTs have a different Chip ID. Both mdloader and QMK Toolbox need to be updated to recognize this new Chip ID. smh... someone from Drop please get this going.

I had the same issue, luckily someone found a way to change the Chip ID. Hopefully this discussion on Github will help you. https://github.com/Massdrop/mdloader/issues/36

Thanks Scrumy. I did see this but I don't know where to begin. Which do I modify? How do I do it? I only know how to make configs and flash. I've never messed with source codes
