Looking at the build guide, it looks like kind of a hassle to have to completely disassemble the case to re-flash layouts.
I wonder if it would be possible to drill a small reset hole through the bottom plate? I'm not 100% comfortable drilling the acrylic, though - I'm worried about cracking it.

I agree. This seems like a fairly big oversight, particularly after the product got delayed so badly. Is there a way to program a key for flashing the keyboard like on the original ErgoDox?

There shouldn't be a problem drilling a hole through the acrylic if you start with a small bit and *slowly* work up to the size you want. Honestly, though, you won't need a very large hole to stick a paperclip though, so it shouldn't be a problem. Backing the hole with a piece of wood and leaving the film on would help as well.

Just bind a key to the reset.

The kll spec mentions a kbdProtocolBoot command that I believe will allow you to flash your board.

Is that what the "Flash" command does on the Input Club Configurator? I think so, but without a board in hand I can't test that. The Configurator needs to be documented somewhere that makes sense. Clicking the Wiki link on it takes you to a Github page and trust me, I've looked through it, but haven't found a file with useable documentation for someone that's just going to use the published tool to bind keys to their ErgoDox.

I haven’t looked at the firmware yet, just assumed there would be a software way to boot into a flashable state – would be pretty dumb if not, and also pretty easy to implement yourself.
Also, someone said TMK works on the Infinity; that can definitely do it :)

The source code refers to the new button as "flash mode" while the wiki on the controller firmware github page refers to what you are talking about as "DFU mode"
However I presume its still the same.
