So so, I upgraded the func keys mit cherry ml in diy stil.
It's not so difficult, but mechanical switch is super.

Do you have any internal pics of the function row key modification?  Do the function row PCBs support ML keys or did you hand-wire them?

MLs on PCB via hand-wiring

I'm trying to do similar mod with replacing old rubber functional keys with ML switches.
I'm looking for a way to connect wires to the controller. I guess one option is to solder each wire on the back side of controller's PCB, but I'm afraid to damage it. So I was trying to connect wires using already existing 13-pin socket.
My wire connection does not work very well  :( , and I'm not sure if problem is with connection itself or may be I have a short circuit somewhere in my own PCB.
How did you connect wires from switches to the controller?

Just solder with wire. Nothing will be damaged.

Thank you! This connector on your picture is a very good idea, I'll use something similar.

Input Nirvana:
Would be nice to see some more in dept photos of the work you are doing for the function switches.

A bit more colorful, not just black and white at the moment, I guess ;D
