Tiny Footprint, Big Impact

Maybe you don’t need a full macro pad, or maybe the appeal of a tiny one is just too much to pass up. This mini four-key macro pad won’t make a big footprint on your desktop, but it can have a huge impact. Made with a CNC-aluminum case with hot-swappable switch sockets, it allows you to put whatever type of switches inside you want—and you can swap them out later if you like. RGB underglow ensures the macro pad won’t go unnoticed wherever you place it. Set the lighting to match your keyboard or PC, or use it to complement your keycap set.

Note: At checkout, choose Box Red, Box Black, Box White, Box Pale Blue, Box Dark Yellow, or Box Burnt Orange switches.

Sorry for reactivating such an old thread, but there seem to be many people asking the same question and like them, I found there was little to no useful documentation for this KB. Nevertheless I eventually managed to program it. The three essential steps are: Make a replacement firmware; Put the keyboard into "DFU" (device firmware update) mode; flash the new firmware. Make a new firmware. The device uses the "Quantum mechanical keyboard" (QMK) software (https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/tree/master/keyboards/xd004). To make a new firmware, there's an "easy" way by going to https://config.qmk.fm/#/xd004/v1/LAYOUT_all, making all the (limited) mods you want, then compiling and downloading the ".hex" result. The "hard" way (but it gives you more versatility including macros): Download and build the QMK development environment. I had problems with Fedora, but eventually got this going under an Ubuntu 20.04 VM. Put the keyboard into DFU mode. For me this was using a piece of wire or some other small conductor to bridge the two header holes furthest from the square keyed one at the header row on the opposite side to the USB port. At this point the XD004 keyboard device disappears from its host computer and is replaced with a DFU device. Flash the .hex file onto the keyboard. You're supposed to be able to do this on the commandline from the build environment, however my VM couldn't seem to find the DFU device. You can also use the graphical QMK Toolbox tool (Which only runs under Windows or MacOS, sadly). I used QMK Toolbox: Firstly pressing the OPEN button on the top row and selecting the .hex file we generated; set the MCU family to "Atmel 16u2"; From the "Keyboard" drop down, select "xd004/v1"; Press the "Flash" button and hope for the best! (You might need to unplug/replug the keyboard to see the changes taking effect. Hope that helps!
