Has anyone had the issue where they plug their keyboard in and Device Manager gives the following prompt?
"Unknown USB device ( Device Descriptor Request Failed)"

I've tried plugging the UK78 in to both Windows 7 and Windows 10 PC's, with no luck :(

-----

It turns out that the bootloader was wiped! All solved now.

I think I may have found the issue with QMK too, I had bootmagic turned on by default which could have been causing an issue https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/70gzhh/help_gui_keys_in_qmk_no_longer_opening_windows/.
Just submitting the change to QMK currently.

I recently flashed a customized layout and without the bootmagic, it seems the board stays in DFU mode when plugged in. sending a 'reset' thru dfu-programmer or FLIP seems to be enough to get it working but its not something i would want to do every time i replug the board

After some troubleshooting i found that turning bootmagic back on fixed this, tho i'm not entirely sure why it was removed and if there is a preferred way to ensure it boots correctly.

Anyone have an extra PCB for sale? I recently built my UK78 and the “I” switch does not work. Replaced the switch and it still doesn’t work. Checked my soldering and it all looks in order. Anything else I should try? I do have a volt meter maybe I could check it someway if it really is the PCB.

Thanks

Check the diode, check the keymap if you are using custom firmware, check the switch pads by shorting them together that will let you know if its the switch. If it still doesn't work message me and i will try to help troubleshoot futher.

Will do, ill take some pictures of the diode, it might be it. Probably my fault, i have soldered three other keyboards before no problem, but with me re-soldering it may have done damage. Not using custom firmware, using the standard set up that comes with on the board. Checked for continuity in the switch and it works. Will mess around with the keymap and try loading up a new one, ill send you a message if ill be able to get it to work over the weekend.

Any thoughts on running this GB again? I'd be interested in picking up a second one for work and I'm sure that there are people who missed out ~2 years ago that might want one too.

You just missed the NYM96 Barebones on massdrop. I'm sure that drop will be back in a few months time, seen it a few times. It was $99+ shipping. I think it will still be cheaper than a UK78 with import VAT considered. But I can't speak for the quality comparison, but the reviews seem very promising.

But a 96 key board is very different than a 60% + numpad, no?

Yes different, and the quality between the UK78 and NYM96 are not the same.

Hey guys, I have been using my alps orange UK78 as my daily for a couple month and, sadly, seem to have shorted it out by giving it a slight static shock. The top 3 rows don't register at all, even after reflashing, but the bottom 2 rows work fine.

Are there extra PCBs floating around out there? Or any idea what it could be? Thanks!!

+1, would definitely be interested if this were run again.

Yeah, this is a pretty cool layout.  Wish I had been around for it back then...

LOL, I have a NYM96 too. It's ok, the build quality is nothing special. It was definitely cheaper than what I paid for my UK78, but it doesn't have the underglow and it has the F row which I really don't need at all. I actually have 3 96 key boards now and I wish I had bought another UK78 instead.

Interested as well if we get enough people to warrant a re-drop
