The Unofficial 60% FaceW Manual for Firmware V1.7 (15 Feb 2015)

This guide was last updated: 4 July 2017
This was written for Firmware Version: 1.7 (15 Feb 2015)
Sources:
http://blog.winkeyless.kr/17
http://blog.winkeyless.kr/155


4 July 2017 Note: Updated with new screenshots and BootMapperClient version 0.9.0.  The faceW will work with ps2avrGB firmware but you will lose the use of the ps2avrU Menu and I couldn't get some of my macros to work so I decided to stick with ps2avrU Firmware V1.7 (15 Feb 2015).

= == === ==== = == === ==== = == === ====


So, you've got your 60% FaceW!  Congrats! :thumb:

But how does it work?

Well, this unofficial manual hopes to shed some light on that.

I've created this from reading through http://winkeyless.kr/ translated into English in Chrome, bugging sprit, and trial and error (FN + other keys in Aqua Key Test hahaha).  Thanks to zennasyndroxx for pointing me to the keycodes for use with the ps2avrU Menu!

If you have questions or have something to share, let me know! :thumb:

= == === ==== = == === ==== = == === ====


1. The Basics
     1.1 Default Layers
     1.2 LED Controls

2. Software Key Mapping using Boot Mapper Client

3. Flashing Firmware / Keymap / Macro

4. ps2avrU Menu
      4.1 Overview
            4.1.1 Entering the ps2avrU Menu
            4.1.2 ps2avrU Menu Options
      4.2 Macro
      4.3 Key Mapper
      4.4 Lazy FN
            4.4.1 Turning Lazy FN On/Off

5. Custom Macro using Boot Mapper Client

6. Putting It All Together

= == === ==== = == === ==== = == === ====

1. The Basics

1.1 Default Layers

These are the default layers and the same as the ones from the file "keymap_part(thumb)(face)(XTen).hex".

NOTE This file contains additional keymaps for the XTen but the FaceW does not have the additional rows/columns.






1.2 LED Controls

Toggle LED Lighting Modes = FN + Caps Lock OR Esc + Caps Lock
     Mode 1: Breathing
     Mode 2: LEDs On
     Mode 3: Reactive 1 -- LEDs are off and get brighter while typing
     Mode 4: Reactive 2 -- LEDs are on and get dimmer while typing
     Mode 5: LEDs Off

Decrease LED Brightness = FN + Right Alt
Increase LED Brightness = FN + Right Ctrl

Why is the Caps Lock LED not illuminated?
The LED on the Caps Lock is the Caps Lock Indicator.  It will illuminate only when Caps Lock is on.

Why is the Back Space LED not illuminated?
The LED on the Back Space is the Num Lock Indicator.  It will illuminate only when Num Lock is on.
Num Lock = FN + U

Toggle FN2 Layer = FN + Space (Caps Lock LED and Num Lock LED will flash twice)
Exit FN2 Layer = Esc + Back Space (Caps Lock LED and Num Lock LED will flash one)


= == === ==== = == === ==== = == === ====


2. Software Key Mapping using Boot Mapper Client

(Optional) Step 0: Put your FaceW in Boot Mapper Mode. 
     
Why is this optional?  This is optional because instead of clicking the cell in the table indicating the key you want to map in Step 6, you need to press the key on the keyboard and the cell in the table will be selected for you.  You must still select the proper layer though.

NOTE While in Boot Mapper Mode, each keypress will output text identifying the column and row (e.g. -6,1=).  This how the Boot Mapper Client picks up which key you press. ;)

Details on the format:
More
The format is: (-<COLUMN>,<ROW>=

0 = Row/Column 1
1 = Row/Column 2
2 = Row/Column 3
...
N = Row/Column N+1

Choose Method A or B:

     
Method A -- This is shorter but you need to unplug the USB cable
  • Unplug the USB cable.
  • Hold down the Tab key while plugging the USB cable.
  • The Caps Lock LED will now be flashing slowly.  The keyboard is now in Boot Mapper Mode.

Method B -- This is longer but you don't need to unplug the USB cable.
  • Open a text editor (e.g. Notepad).
  • Press and hold Left Control, Left Alt, Left Shift, and Right Shift for five (5) seconds.
  • The Caps Lock LED and the Num Lock LED will flash three (3) times quickly.
  • Release the keys the keys you are holding down.
  • The following will be displayed in text editor:
         
    hello

    select mode
    1:macro
    2:key mapper
    3:lazy fn : on
    4:fn2/3 led : off
    5:esc to ~ : off
    7:exit
    9:boot mapper
    >>
  • Press 9
  • The following will be displayed in text editor:
         
    hello

    select mode
    1:macro
    2:key mapper
    3:lazy fn : on
    4:fn2/3 led : off
    5:esc to ~ : off
    7:exit
    9:boot mapper
    >> 9
    boot mapper
  • The Caps Lock LED will now be flashing slowly.  The keyboard is now in Boot Mapper Mode.


Step 1: Download the following files:
BootMapperClient Ver 0.9.0: * BootMapperClient.zip (21702 kB - downloaded 197 times.)
ps2avrU_firmware_V1.7_150215.zip: * ps2avrU_firmware_V1.7_150215.zip (169.45 kB - downloaded 2830 times.)


Step 2: Create a directory (firmware in the image below) and extract the firmware archive (ps2avrU_firmware_V1.7_150215.zip) to the said folder:



Step 3: Extract the BootMapper archive (BootMapperClient.zip) and it will create the folder BootMapperClient:



Step 4: Double click on BootMapperClient.exe in the BootMapperClient folder.



Step 5: Click the target dropdown menu in the upper right and select "ps2avrU & ps2avrU_split".



Step 6: Click "Load .hex / .json".



Step 7: Navigate to the firmware folder and open the file "keymap_part(thumb)(face)(XTen).hex".



Step 8: Once the keymap file is open, you will see the Normal Layer.

NOTE This file contains additional keymaps for the XTen but the FaceW does not have the additional rows/columns.


See the other layers (FN, FN2, and FN3)
More
Click "fn" to see the FN Layer

Click "fn2" to see the FN2 Layer

Click "fn3" to see the FN3 Layer

Now lets make some changes!


Step 9: Go to the layer you want to edit (fn3 in the example below).  We will remap Space.

If you performed Step 0 and put your keyboard in Boot Mapper Mode, press the Space Bar on your keyboard.

Alternately, you can click the cell in the table indicating "Space".




Step 10: Click the new key you want to assign (toggle FN2 in the example below).


Repeat until done.


Step 11: When you are done customizing the keymap, click "Save .hex".



Step 12: Give it a memorable file name (I chose NEW KEYMAP.hex :thumb:) and click "Save".



Step 13: If applicable, exit Boot Mapper Mode by unplugging and replugging the USB cable.


Step 14: Now to flash the keymap file!

Please proceed to Flashing Firmware / Keymap / Macro

DISCLAIMER: Flashing can cause permanent damage to your keyboard if applied incorrectly.  In no event will I and / or GeekHack be liable for any damages of any kind relating to this guide, including but not limited to, compensatory damages, lost profits, lost data or any form of special, incidental, indirect, consequential or punitive damages of any kind whether based on breach of contract or warranty, negligence, product liability or any other theory of liability.

3. Flashing Firmware / Keymap / Macro

Step 1: Download the following file:
ps2avrU_firmware_V1.7_150215.zip: link


Step 2: Create a directory (firmware in the image below) and extract the firmware archive (ps2avrU_firmware_V1.7_150215.zip) to the said folder:



Step 3: Double click on HIDBootFlash.exe in the firmware folder



Step 4: Put your FaceW in Flash Programming Mode.
  • Unplug the USB cable.
  • Hold down the Q key while plugging the USB cable.
  • The LEDs will now be flashing.  The keyboard is now in Flash Programming Mode

Note: Try not to stare at it for too long. :cool:


Step 5: In HIDBootFlash, click "Find Device".



Step 6: If the device is found, the "Open. hex File" button should appear.  Click it.



Step 7: Now select the firmware file, keymap file, or macro file that you want to flash and click "Open" (I'm using the main firmware file keymain_NKRO.hex).



Step 8: Click "Flash Device".


Note: While it is flashing, the LEDs will be steady.  When done, the LEDs will return to flashing.


Step 9: When you see ":-) Finished flashing the device!" in the console area, you're done!  Disconnect and reconnect the usb cable.


NOTES
  • When you flash a firmware, you must reflash the keymap and the macro
  • It would be best to flash in this order: firmware >> keymap >> macro.
  • If you would like to continue flashing other files, don't disconnect the USB cable, and instead go back to Step 6.


Step 10: Enjoy your new firmware / keymap / macros! :thumb:

4.4 Lazy FN

Here's what Lazy FN does...

With Lazy FN off:
     
FN + 1 = F1

Press FN and 1, the keyboard will register F1.  While holding down 1, release FN and the keyboard will register 1.  While still holding down 1, press 2 the keyboard will register 1 and 2.

With Lazy FN on:
     
FN + 1 = F1

Press FN and 1, the keyboard will register F1.  While holding down 1, release FN and the keyboard will still register F1 as if FN was still pressed.  While still holding down 1, press 2 the keyboard will register F1 and F2.

So it's like a "sticky fn" or something.

For what it's worth, turning Lazy FN on has eliminated the unintentional [ / ; ' I leave all over the place while using them as arrows and release the FN early.


4.4.1 Turning Lazy FN On/Off

Step 1: Enter the ps2avrU menu.

Instructions:
More
Entering the ps2avrU Menu
  • Open a text editor (e.g. Notepad).
  • Press and hold Left Control, Left Alt, Left Shift, and Right Shift for five (5) seconds.

5. Custom Macro using Boot Mapper Client

Step 1: Download the following file:
BootMapperClient Ver 0.9.0: link



Step 2: Extract the BootMapper archive (BootMapperClient.zip) and it will create the folder BootMapperClient:



Step 3: Double click on BootMapperClient.exe in the BootMapperClient folder.



Step 4: Click "Custom Macro".



Step 5: Click the target dropdown menu in the upper right and select "ps2avrU".



Step 6: Click the custom macro you want to program (CstMac1 in this example).



Step 7: Program the Macro.  In this example, we will program CstMac1 for a copy command using Left Control + C.  Now click "LCtrl" and "C".


Now there is a "LCtrl" and "C" in the programming window.  If left this way, the macro will output a "LCtrl" keypress and then a "C" keypress.  We want "C" to be pressed while "LCtrl" is being pressed.  To do this, we need to split the LCtrl.

When you split a key press, you separate its "Down" (key is pressed down" and its "Up" (key is released). 


Step 8: Select the key you want to split (in the example below,  we are splitting LCtrl) and click "split".



Now that LCtrl has been split we need to move "C" in between the "LCtrl (down)" and "LCtrl (up)".


Step 9: Click "C" in the programming window and drag "C" in between "LCtrl (down)" and "LCtrl (up)".


Now you are done programming CstMac1!


Step 10: When you are done programming the macros, click "save macro.hex".



Step 11: Give it a memorable file name (I chose NEW MACRO.hex :thumb:) and click "Save".



Step 12: Now to flash the keymap file!

Please proceed to Flashing Firmware / Keymap / Macro

Note: Don't forget to program the CSTMac1, CSTMac2, ... , CSTMac12 buttons in your keymap! :cool:

Ok so this is almost done.  All that is left to do is make the images for the default layers and explain how the FN3 layers works. :thumb:

Did I leave anything out?

Good eye! :thumb: I'll fix that. :cool:

Edit: Fixed the Lazy FN description.  Think of it as "sticky fn" ;)

The "Apps" key on the default layout on the first layer.  Is that a win key or a contextual menu key?

Are these firmware files still necessary?

http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=50580.msg1256970#msg1256970

Yeah, those are the firmware and key map files.  This is written for V1.6. I should mention that in the OP and attach files.  Also, there are minor changes in V1.7 like the options in the Hardware Key Mapping Mode. I'll write that up later this week. :thumb:

It's a contextual menu key. ;)

Ye! It has Arrow keys in the FN2 layer for default Keymap!    ;)
Personally, I prefer the Arrow Keys in the Normal Layer (like Happy Hacking, or might 1800) or, in Fn 1 Layer (as Poker 60%) in the 60% mini keybards.
LED Brightness Keys can go to  Fn + V (B)  as  the Poker I, II.
In any Case, You can custom Your own Key easily with the Boot(Key)Mapper Software.

Just wondering if its possible for me to swap the position of the fn and apps key ?

you can use the ps2avrU programmer in which you would need to use a text editor. choose keymap (option 2) on the main menu, then choose what layer you want and since you're swapping menu and FN then layer one. then just follow the instructions there :D

refer to this spreadsheet for the keycodes.

https://docs.google.com/a/panama-technology.net/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ah1Lcjc-gPfndGRJN1JGVUFuOGxkQnVwdm9OLVZYb2c&usp=sharing#gid=0

Maybe I'll put up a guide or something someday.

Yes you can!  Just tried it out. :thumb:

Just be sure to change it on all the proper layers.  For me, the easiest way is to use the GUI (http://boot.winkeyless.kr/bootMapper/) and with your FaceW in Boot Mapper GUI mode so that when you press a key on the keyboard the proper cell in the table will be selected for you (just pick the proper layer).

Boot Mapper GUI mode:
  • Unplug the USB cable.
  • Hold down the Tab key while plugging the USB cable.  The Caps Lock LED will now be flashing.

Note that in the GUI:
  • Col6, Row9 is the FN where the windows context key is on a 1.25x mod bottom row
  • Col6, Row11 is the FN key to the right of a 1.75x R.Shift.

Thank you ! I'm a little new to all of these. So I'm gonna re-read it slowly before doing it.
Afraid that I will messed things up.
Regarding loading the hex file, I only have this "keymap_part(thumb)(face)(XTen).hex" instead of this "keymap_part(thumb)(face).hex"
Just wondering if it's the same thing. I'm not too sure about. =(
Thanks again.

It looks like the new keymap file is keymap_part(thumb)(face)(XTen).hex in the July 16 Firmware v1.7.

Time to update this guide!

I'm on win7 but have a hackintosh installation. I'll do some testing and let you know. :cool:

Probably going to use the keycodes and the ps2avru menu since I don't think the flasher works on OSX.

You should be able to compile bootloadhid on OSX.  It's not a pretty gui, but it should allow you to flash in OSX.

Nothing wrong with reflashing 1.7 with 1.7. It's like rewriting.

Can't blame him. Sprit has his work cut out for him with this GB and all the hand soldering in R1.

I'm on 8.1 and it didn't really turn out well. I'm not sure if it's because of my faceu replica that I bought if in a Chinese forum groupbuy or it just won't work. The vid and pid is different, loading bootloader with teh q key didn't work. Entered boot mapper via ps2avr menu didn't work as well.

I'm not sure.  I'm still on Windows 7 x64.
