Flashing

Sol 3 currently uses a fork here, specifically the /development branch. When split RGB & encoders has fully been implemented into QMK, the fork will be pulled into the master branch.

Sol 3 uses QMK firmware. Documentation on installation, keymaps and compiling can be found here.

To install the default keymap:

  1. Install QMK Toolbox

  2. Flash the left half

    1. QMK Toolbox: Choose the firmware .bin with Open.

    2. Reset the board by pressing the reset switch on the PCB.

    3. Flash: Press the flash button in QMK Toolbox.

  3. Flash the right half

    1. Repeat the above with the same .bin file.

  4. Plug the leftmost port into your PC, and the two middle ports into each other.

  5. After the initial setup, you can update your keymap using QMK Toolbox, and you only need to flash the primary half.

​For custom keymaps, do the following (To be changed when Sol3 enters QMK master)

  1. Install QMK MSYS and open, run the following:

  2. git clone -b development https://github.com/rgbkb/qmk_firmware

  3. qmk setup - press Y when asked to install submodules

  4. qmk doctor

  5. qmk compile -kb rgbkb/sol3 -km default

To update your repo, run the following

  1. cd qmk_firmware

  2. git remote add upstream -t development https://github.com/rgbkb/qmk_firmware

  3. git pull upstream development

  4. cd ..

  5. If dependencies have changed, you may need to re-run qmk doctor

If QMK Toolbox doesn't work, try these steps
