Flashing

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

If QMK Toolbox doesn't work, try these steps

To install the default keymap:

  1. Install AVRdudess

    1. You may need to install Atmel Flip drivers and follow this guide after resetting the board.

  2. Download the left/right eeprom files and .hex files here

    1. Right-click each link and "Save link as..." or download the whole repo

  3. Flash the left half

    1. Programmer

      1. For Elite-C choose FLIP USB DFU protocol version 1 (doc7618)

      2. For Pro-Micro choose Atmel AppNote AVR109 Boot Loader

    2. Port: usb

    3. MCU: ATmega32U4

    4. Flash: choose your hex file

    5. EEPROM: chooseeeprom-lefthand.eep

    6. Press the reset button or short RST to GND

    7. PressProgram!

  4. Flash the right half, but useeeprom-righthand.eep

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

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