Remapping the 2019 HHKB Classic
« on: Mon, 27 April 2020, 13:31:07 »
I need to start by saying I don't advise anyone try this unless they are willing to brick their boards.

This seems to work consistently. No longer advising against it.

i discovered that the app reads the part number, and checks a property under the PN in a JSON file in the install directory.

the file is at C:\\Program Files\PFU\Happy Hacking Keyboard Keymap Tool\keyboardDataList.json

this file contains a list of keyboard models. Mine is PD-KB401W and that is the ONLY model I have tested this on.

the flag the app checks is 'isKeymapChangeable'. it will be set to false for all the Classic models.

you can replace KeyboardDatalist.json with this file: https://gist.github.com/crsayen/dfa2197884f11d7e917c7637c8764ecd

Does this mod open up the board for the possible use of a Hasu controller? If that is the case it might be worth the risk.

Received my new PD-KB401BN today and this trick works with that model as well (at least for me!). Do at your own risk, of course, but it seems these boards are totally capable of being remapped.

Hi guys, could you please specify for which versions of Firmware / "Happy Hacking Keyboard Keymap Tool" does it works? Something like:
"FW: A4.29 (2020/05) / HHKB KT:  1.1.0 (2020/05) ... works"
Many thanks!
