when you disassembled the board, were there any wires running in between the keys on the pcb (to create a sort of hard-wired remap)? i've only seen that once ever before on topre, but it makes me believe that it's possible.


Mystery solved - when I took the PCB out I couldn't even see the wire it was so thin, then rushed to make some dinner for the little one. What a strange mod... but I don't hate it. I don't program so I never use tilde.


Wow, it also appears they cut/scraped the diagonal trace on both keys so this is nearly a permanent change until you reconnect those two ends on those cut traces.

Yeah I think the seller very much intended it to be a permanent change - there's small traces of glue on the contact points for additional security. Anyhow it's a neat little difference - bought it as a cheaper donor board to put in a Norbauer so pretty excited!
