Flashing your layout

After you've download your completed .hex, flash the firmware to your keyboard using QMK Toolbox.  Flashing the .hex is the same for all keyboards: put the keyboard in dfu-programming mode (by pressing the reset button on the bottom of the PCB), select the .hex within QMK Toolbox, and press flash! See our Programming Overview How-To Guide for more instructions.
