Cherry MX Board 1.0 RGB

From munkjensen.net/wiki

I bought this mechanical keyboard resently and experienced some problems with the RGB part of it. It was not possible for me to edit or change anything as the Cherry Utility software (v 1.0.9) gave an expression of should be possible. My keyboard was shipped with the 0.1.0.1 firmware and i had a suspicion that it might need an upgrade due to the way it behaved.

I searched the accomapnying documentation (it was very sparse) and Intarwebs but found absolutely nothing that indicated any firmware updates were released :-/

Some time later I was looking thrugh the installation folders and suddenly found what very much looked like firmware upgrade files for SEVERAL diferent Cherry Keyboards !!

It turns out that this keyboard can easily be firmware upgraded althoug I could not find any information on how to do it.

All i had to du was run the file that corrosponds to the keyboard model i got :-) (i did it as administrator just to be shure it would go without Windows interfering)

After this EVERYTHING worked as expected.

I do not understand why Chery didn't flag this up much more. . . that doesn't make sense !?!

The path where i found the firmware files was:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Cherry\UtilitySoftware\UpdateData
