I have noticed that the usb-C connector you have used on your design, seems that it does not support data transference. The pins connected to the signal D+ and D- are connected to the signals CC1 and CC2 as seen in the datasheet.
Indeed, it won't work. I'll have to change it. Thanks for the heads up.

Edit: changed to 16 pins.

I've recently bought the parts to make my own TOAD using the rev4 pcb and I can't for the life of me solder the usb-c in place. The pads are directly under the pins which make it hard to stick a soldering iron down there without melting the plastic on the usb-c and using a heatgun to try and solder it on just isn't working. Any tips on how to solder this usb-c down? It's hard to find any videos of people soldering something like this.

I finally managed to make RGB LEDs work. Two will be then featured on the TOAD in the near future.
Sadly EasyAVR won't support it so now it's QMK firmware alone.

Huge thanks to nevin who helped me figure out the code.
Here's a demo on a breadboard:
