New errors I have no ideas how to deal with. I downloaded the latest version of Cygwin and am trying to build the firmware from the Tmk_master file. Was I supposed to unzip the file or leave it zipped? I'm trying to follow the guide that you sent earlier to use with a Teensy 2.0, but when I am trying to build the firmware, the line where it asks for me to
Code: [Select]
make -f Makefile.<variant> clean it keeps erroring saying:

Code: [Select]
../../tmk_core/protocol/Lufa.mk:12: *** LUFA may be too old or not found: try 'git submodule update --init'. Stop. 262825-0

when trying this command it fails to find a repository and update the Lufa. What do I do from here? am I stuck because I have too new of a system or is there a way to get around this? Is there any way to bypass this by just getting a pre-created hex file for the ADB_USB variant that I can just flash?

Use the online configurator (link in previous post). At the bottom of the configurator page you can download a hex file to flash to the teensy.

No worries. It's always a bit confusing until you learn the terminology & tools when your first getting started.

Hey guys, I just made a converter for my AEK II and when I plug it in, the leds on the keyboard flash once, then all turn on solid. The converter is being recognized in hid_listen, but I'm not getting any scancodes or error messages. I have 6ish-k resistor between the gnd and data lines. Any ideas as to what is happening?

not really sure, need a little more info.

what controller are you using?
which firmware did you use?
- with the adb converter there are two variants one for 32u4 (rev 1) for teensy & promicros & similar
and 32u2 (rev 2) for the one hasu sells

sounds like it didn't flash right or is not the right firmware for your controller?

Sorry for not clarifying, I was using the QMK variant on a promicro (32u4), however I also tried hasu's rev1 for TMK and I'm getting the same result. The keyboard still shows up correctly in hid_listen on the TMK version.

Code: [Select]
    TMK:a36eff92/LUFA
   
   
    Scan:
   
    Keyboard:
    handler: 00, ISO: no
   
    Scan:
   
    USB configured.
   
    Keyboard start.

Is the output I get from the hid_listen on the QMK toolbox, which is what i use to flash.

ok this is kinda awkward, but after pouring over my wiring for the 15th time i noticed that the GND trace on my adb breakout was broken right by the pad, kind of embarrassing but jumping that trace fixed my issue.
