What about the KPAD? I would assume that it is the top button? Granted, there is few enough buttons that it wouldn't take long to figure out by guess and check.

Maybe many of you already known this, but some still may not. As it took me about 2 hours to figure out, I think I should write this down for whom have KMAC winkeyless with LEDs installed to TURN THE LEDS ON/OFF.

So here we go:

1. Download the New KMAC Keymap tools as provided in litster's OP.
2. Download Flip application via URL provided in the How to upload to KMAC.docx (Thanks to feng ^^), and install it.
3. Follow the How to upload to KMAC.docx to generate you own HEX file and upload to you KMAC winkeyless. Some IMPORTANT points to be aware of here:
     - Extract the New KMAC Keymap tools to a directory without any space in the name, e.g. C:\KMAC, otherwise, it can't generate a HEX file correctly.
     - When starting the KAMCS.exe, you are first required to use your KBDMania account to login. (The login window is in Korean...)
     - Assign one of the keys except the Esc as Fn, in my case it's my right alt. please also keep in mind that once the key is assigned as Fn, the original function of that key will never work again.
4. Once the new key map file (a .HEX file) successfully uploaded to your KMAC winkeyless, you can use your new Fn key + Esc to turn on/off the LEDs installed on your board, and you will surprisingly find that LEDs in different areas, i.e. ASDW LEDs is viewed in one area,  can be controlled separately.  Congratulations ;D

Please let me know if you have any questions  regarding to the above, I would be happy to be helpful. ^^

I found last night that the FN key is the DFU key on the KPAD. I'll have to upload the KMAC manual that I translated, it lost all the formatting but is completely usable and quite helpful if used side by side with the Korean manual. *makes mental note to upload English KMAC Manual*

It is just Google Translated, however, it gets the point across well enough. You just need to use them side by side.

For you guys that already built this, are there resistors in the matrix for the LEDs, or the fact that they're in series provide the correct resistance for the circuit?

Here is the translated manual that I did in Google Translate...not the best, but helpful if used side by side with the KBDMania manual. It most importantly to me told me the DFU keys for the KMAC's is the Caps Lock key and for the KPAD, it is the Fn key. Also included is the syntax for macros on the KMAC's which is pretty handy.
Here...be kind to my Dropbox.
I'll upload it to a better place later unless somebody will do it for me, not quite sure how the attachments in front are hosted.

Hmmm, why does it log you in to to kbdmania?  Has anyone checked if this application is doing nefarious stuff?

The program requires you to have KBDMania account to log into the program. I haven't had any problems over here making the HEX files etc. Profosist, how is your layout working?

Which LEDs did you pick, and do you have the specs for them? I just ordered some white, red, and purple, not sure how it's going to turn out.

the switches are brown with 55g's.  The problem is that I did not have any lube at the time.  It would feel even better with lube.  I recommend you adding it when you have time!

Latest KMAC keymap software.  This standalone version doesn't require any login.  I was going to attach it here but the zip file is too large for GH.  So go to the link directly.

I've also uploaded the keymap software to my dropbox.
That might be a little bit faster than the direct link. :)

Oh god finally found this thread.  Got my KMAC reprogrammed finally!  That PDF was money even though I couldn't read it.  It had pictures and English for the buttons you press. 
Caps->Control
LControl -> Windows
Scroll Lock -> LED toggle.

I think the following video will be helpful to understand how to change KMAC keymap and apply the modified keymap file to KMAC.

- KMAC manual : http://go9.co/fqs 

I'm afraid the manual is Korean version other than English one but i think the pics in the manual will also give you some tips.
