Teensy 2.0 help
« on: Tue, 09 June 2015, 13:54:03 »
I'm currently waiting for the parts for my keyboard, i Bought the Phantom TKL PCB and teensy 2.0 from Mechanicalkeyboards.com. I'm assuming im going to have to flash it to work my keyboard? im wondering if anyone knows a good tutorial or something that's good for a first timer. I looked around a bit and it all just looks like a bunch of jargon to me.

Teensy is really easy.  Google Teensy and read the programming instructions at pjrc.com

Essentially you plug it in, press the reset button, open the teensy program on your computer, load the file you want to program, and press the go button.  Easy.

Teensy is super easy to work with - when you have pre-written code. 

dR., were you wanting to write your own code for it?  Thankfully, there are great pieces of sample code for this very project.

Do you have a plate for your phantom? That board is designed to be used with a plate, it doesn't have PCB mounts for stabilizers.

@dR.Ugz:
There is a really good Phantom instruction guide over on the Deskthority Wiki. There are links there to some firmware options and to PRJC's guide for flashing the bootloader.
BTW, the booloader is really easy to use.

I saw your post in chzel's plate GB thread over at Deskthority, so I suppose you have one on order then. :)
