If you are having problem flashing new batch of Alt
If you are getting "Error: Could not find a valid device port!" while trying to flash the new batch of Alt High Profile on or around Aug 24, 2020.
The fix is to download 1.03 mdloader source code from Github.
Change the Chip ID in line 38 of mdloader_common.c to "0x60060305". Compile and flash.
Thank you to:
The badasses fauxpark and sigprof in the QMK discord for figuring out the problem when it first appeared with the CTRL High Profile.
And thank you to:
Marc Wilkinson (Drop user name: marcw) for compiling a binary version of mdloader that prints the Chip ID when trying to connect to the keyboard. When trying to flash with his binary version, I saw it repeatedly printing 60060305, which I guessed is the new Chip ID.
Here is a working Linux binary I built:
Can someone make a Windows build? I don't know how to "make" for Windows.
Shame on Drop for making crappy firmware loader. VIA conflagrator show be a standard for a 200 dollar QMK keyboard. Please make your keyboards work with VIA.
