Got my ergo built. Still not enough details as to how to flash the keyboard. Tried the dfu-util. anyone else encounter this issue?
I couldn't get dfu-util to work on Windows 10. I have a Mac and a Linux box though and those are actually easier to setup for flashing. You could always setup a virtual Linux machine for this. Or even using an Ubuntu live CD you could "sudo apt-get install lib-usb dfu-util" without having to install the OS on your computer.
Use the configurator to your liking and download the firmware. Inside the zip file you'll get .bin files for the left and right halves. Flash each one individually and then you're done.
Well. I have tried that on a lot of different OS'es. Fedora, OSX and Ubuntu. No luck. Still encountering this error 'dfu-util: No DFU capable USB device available'.
dfu-util --list shows no devices connected
Not under VM I presume. Does the USB port you are using work for e.g. pendrives under one of those OSes? Possibly try using a different PC if you can. But it could be that your keyboard does not connect properly?
This isn't under a VM. I have tried three different machines. I had read somewhere dfu-util doesn't work well with USB 3.0. Don't think that is the case. I have another machine at home which dual boots windows and ubuntu. I will try on that machine. However https://github.com/kiibohd/controller/wiki/Loading-DFU-Firmware suggest s pressing the flash button and Debug LED comes on. Am i missing something here. I don't see a debug LED anywhere.
It isn't a debug LED it's the actual LCD on the board. It will turn red.
the LCD's LED will change color, but theres also a debug surface-mount LED on the bottom of the board near the microprocessor (i think its labeled D77)
LCD will light up red... An led on the back of the board will light up reddish orange...
Ok. Pressing the flash key doesn't do that for me. Should I open the case and is there are hardware flash button that I can use.
You'll have to take off the case but the flash button is on the right hand side of the left board and on the left hand side of the right board. Both flash buttons are on the bottoms of the boards directly under the vertical 1.5u keys.
finally. I was able to flash the keyboard and use the layout i wanted. Having said that. I am going to drill some holes on acrylic to make the button easily accessible.
You can put a flash button on one of the keys, so you will never need to hit the button on the back again.
