Hey! Do you still have that case?
Maxff
Sold it already, sorry!
how can you tell which default layout (between 2.0u shift or 2.25u shift ) for the pcb did you get, just in case you got the wrong plate and the reboot button is broken that prevents you from flashing
if anyone is looking to sell the case lmk
Received the kit a few weeks ago. Got the wrong plate, but I built the keyboard without the plate, so it didn't matter that much. I told massdrop about this, and they gladly gave me a partial refund.
To be honest, after using the WhiteFox for so long, I really don't like this key layout. The Rshift key being a 1x has repeatedly thrown me off. Also the lack of different modifier keycaps that are actually useful to this set (such as including a 1.5 backspace) are not there, so I just ghetto pieced everything together. Of course, this could be solved by simply just buying new ones.
I really like the case lighting, I wish it was a no-slant case
Programming was fairly straight forward once I figured out all the pieces. There's still a strange bug where the FN key will toggle and never untoggle until I restart the keyboard. (even though I set this key to be a "hold" key and not toggle...).
I built this with Mod-M's and they feel nice.
I'm using this as a backup keyboard for now. Probably will (try) to sell in the future to make another 75 keyboard.
Any body still have a Left Shift 2.25U plate that want to swap? Massdrop shipped mine wrong too and got the replacement wrong as well.

Still need this? Massdrop shipped the wrong plate to me too. Didn’t offer a refund or exchange so I had to purchase a 2U myself.
patters
Thanks patters! I already purchased a correct plate on ali. Thanks for the offering!
Got this set a few weeks ago and put it together shortly after. Love the keyboard so much (it's my main keyboard I use at home now), but I've had many issues from the moment I've opened it until now.
First, I kind of expected this to happen: I got the wrong plate. I ordered the 2.25 U left shift plate and got the 2 U plate. This wouldn't have bothered me much, but the keycap set that I used for the keyboard (GMK Yuri) does not have a 2 U left shift, so I had to get a shift from a different keycap set of mine. It looks a bit odd, but problem solved at least.
Second, the keyboard is preventing my computer from booting. If the keyboard is plugged in and I boot my pc, the screen hangs at the motherboard screen and nothing happens. This is NOT an issue with my pc, since my pc boots when other keyboards are plugged in and even when nothing is plugged in. I've found a somewhat strange workaround to this though. If the keyboard's underglow LED's are OFF and I turn them ON while at this screen, my pc boots normally. If anyone has this problem and/or has a solution to this problem, please let me know; it's really irritating (I've tried changing various MoBo settings, but none have worked).
Finally, I'm having issues with the underglow LEDs. If the LEDs are on and I turn my pc off, they stay on. This isn't much of an issue, but if there is a way to turn them off when I turn my pc off, I'd like to know. However, there's one big issue: if the underglow LEDs are OFF and I turn my pc off, one of the underglow LEDs (the left most one) will turn on and stay on. The only way to fix this is to unplug the keyboard and plug it back in. This is really annoying to do. If anyone knows why this is happening or how to fix it, please let me know.
I understand these are small, petty issues, but these aren't issues that should occur when you spend so much money on something, especially something like a keyboard. Additionally, the temporary solutions to this are annoying, since no other keyboard does this to my computer. Please help me with my issues if you know solutions. I can provide more information if needed. Thanks for reading!
RacistGiraffe
I too get the booting issue, where the system keeps trying to boot to the keyboard and hangs at the POST screen. Unplugging and replugging it seems to fix it. Checked BIOS settings, it's not listed as a bootable device so not sure what's up with that.
However with the LEDs staying on with the computer shut down, this is an issue with Fast Boot. If Fast Boot is enabled, the computer will still provide power to the keyboard underglow and keep it lit. Turned off, it goes out when shut down as expected.
JTastensen
Hey, thanks for the reply! I'm glad that I'm not the only one with these problems. I'm currently not home so I can't test the fastboot issue right now. I'll be sure to try it out though.
Got mine yesterday and to my surprise it was the correct plate, but is it normal that there is this wide empty gaps seems a bit week on those points ? Massdrop's pictures shows a bit better plate structure.

How to Program your XD60 v2.0 -------------------------------------------
If like me this if your first board, and your struggling with flashing it here is some simple documentation to follow.
- Under your PCB is a small (RESET) button, pressing this will put your board into its "Boot/Flashing" mode - Check to see if your board has drivers by going to Device Manager and see if there's a "Warning Triangle" next to your ATm32u4dfu - My Board (and most) come without drivers, so download: http://zadig.akeo.ie/ - Make sure your board appears as " ATm32u4dfu" (Atmega 32u4 - DFU Programming) by pressing the "RESET" button - Install the Drivers (WinUSB) - Board should reboot and display as GH60 or XD60 in Windows Devices (If not unplug/replug) - Build your layout with KLE: http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/#/gists/f249c49347e68c8b383a9ca16abd6623 - That is the XD60 default layout - Set your board to XD60 RevXD_Mod (If your only doing one layer - Choose simple) - Copy your Raw Data from KLE to the Composite Layer on http://yang.tkg.io/ (If this site doesn't load correctly, try googling for it instead - It has to be YANG if you want underglow to work) Language is Top Right drop down - To copy the default FN keys go back to KLE > Keyboard Properties > Copy then go to YANG and hit Tools > Import FN keys > Paste - To understand the Chinese custom functions go here: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/6pnpq7/xd64_layout_flashing_guide/ - Hit the Reset button and then you should be allowed to hit burn.eep
- Now that you have used TKG your board can now be put into boot mode by press LSHIFT+RSHIFT+Pause Break If you leave Pus Brk in the FN layer like i did you also have to hold FN, it will take a second or so, no more unscrewing :D

Enjoy your new flashed board!!

Useful links & Info: List of all TKG supported KLE buttons: http://yang.tkg.io/#help Don't worry if Zadig says you have no WCID - Mine works fine with a Red X in there Another write up can be found here too: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/6pnpq7/xd64_layout_flashing_guide/

This section is about setting up what colours should show when your NOT using the pattern RGB mode. They are written as they appear :
Red = When Caps Lock is Reversed (e.g. Not on - CapsLock needs to be pressed on and off once for this to apply) Green = When Layer 1 is active Blue = When Caps lock is On
I still don't understand the other two I believe Caps lock is there to allow you to toggle on that specific LED Not sure about Backlight - Don't have any LED's in mine yet
I have mine setup like this as i don't use the traditional LAYER setup just SIMPLE

Can you share your raw data for your keyboard file. I keep getting an error with my changes and I would like to see yours. Our layouts are similar.
Thanks
blfinche
Of course, https://goo.gl/LfCRnN
Here is a link to the KLE File so you can visualise the layout easily.
Just finished my build. It was my first and I didn't have any issues, other than soldering 3 led sip sockets in the wrong location. I still haven't figured out how to turn on the leds or program the keyboard. I love the keyboard and the Kailh keys (bronze) and Maxkey Limes from KBDfans. The order was super quick from KBDfans. China to the US in less than a week and I took the free shipping. The keys have a nice feel and the actuation of the switches is much better than the blues that I usually use.

omfg. the paper. that has to be it...wow i am an idiot.
justathad
Aha! Oh no dude!! :P That's an easy mistake to make though, i was unsure what i was looking at the first time - but i had some help myself!
The leds with the kit don't appear to fit in my Kailh switches. I was looking at substituting 1.8mm leds. Is there a particular voltage for the leds?
Thanks
Where can I find replacement polycarbonate diffuser layer, mine cracked from tightening the pcb snug?
After many many months, I have finally completed this build. Since MD wasn't ordering any more replacement plates, they refunded me the purchase and I ended up getting the correct plate from aliexpress. So in the end I guess I saved a little on the overall expense which was a pretty big investment considering the penumbra keyset, shishi artisan keycap, 67g zealios, and zealencio silencing clips. I have the RGB underlight working but currently the white LEDs I installed are not and I will have to troubleshoot. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this and nothing went to awry since this was my first build and I hadn't soldered since high school.

So I received my order the other day with the incorrect plate (go figure.) Is there any way I can request the "wrong" plate this time instead (which as it turns out will hopefully be the correct plate due to the mislabeling).
Massdrop should seriously just up the price on this drop by 10 bucks and include both plates from the start. They'd probably save money rather than sending dozens of the identical mislabeled plates to people.
Is it more than I who just got a shipping notice?

got mine too, but very stressed about receiving the wrong plate!!!
EagleRock
When it comes to Massdrop purchases, may the odds be ever in your favor.
Edit: received mine today. The odds were not in my favor apparently.
Does anybody know how to turn on the Cat light under the space bar? My underglow is working, but my cat is not illuminated?
thinkV
You need to solder LEDs on the back of the PCB where the cat is. There are small pads around the rectangle where the cat is. Two LEDs should be enough.
Looks like a lot of people here want to trade, but fail to check back on the thread.
Please read previous comments first before posting. Chances are someone already offered what you wish to trade. Reply to relevant comment.
Or use /r/mechmarket.
Good look with trades! :)

I'd add thou. In my case i've read alot of the previous comments. But alot of people do not include their location. Which doesn't help in a trade scenario. If people could include their location when offering a trade please.
Anyone in Australia want to swap for a 2U plate for my 2.25U plate.?
So Massdrop support tells me that they won't be ordering anymore supplies after the second plate that I received was still wrong.
I have the Titanium 2.25U plate and looking to trade for a 2U plate. Anyone looking to trade? Best if you can in Canada or at least in North America.
irregularprofit
It's so crazy to me that this is still going on.

Not sure what shipping would cost, but I have a silver 2u plate I don't need. I can trade or sell to you to cover shipping costs.

Just got sent another 2.25u grey plate, PLEASE I JUST WANT A 2U plate, anybody in Melbourne, Australia with a 2U grey plate?

Hey man, I know it's quite late but I have a 2U Titanium Grey plate. Do you want to trade your 2.25U Titanium Grey plate for mine?

I just had the realisation that Massdrop never actually sent a 3rd plate through to me - really sorry about that! I wouldn't have went through with the build and did the swap have I known that time! I just checked the tracking no in the email they told me was for the replacement plate and it matched up with the shipping box for the replacement PCB I got due to a fault with my 1st one.
I'm on the same boat now: got refunded for the drop. Sorry I couldn't really help you out with the swap.

Fair is fair.
Refunded, so can't be mad, just sad :(

Sorry, i've already made arrangements to trade with tikkaman...

Got one more 2.25u plate, willing to send elsewhere in the EU for the price of shipping, don't need another 2u.
hate to hop on the train but my replacement plate is infact the wrong plate again. Ball is really being dropped here
Ordered 2u plate, but received a 2.25u plate labelled 2u on the bag. Replacement plate is exactly the same, a 2.25u plate in a bag with a 2u label.
ilovemacandcheese
If the plate is titanium gray, would you be interested in trading plates? I have a 2U plate that I'm trying to swap here: https://www.reddit.com/r/mechmarket/comments/7ed9bo/usca_h_xd60_2u_titanium_gray_plate_w_xd60_225u/

Sorry man, it's a silver one.
After 3 wrong plates I'm getting a refund. Ended up trading one of them for the plate I needed to finish my build.
It's not hard to tell them apart, AFAIK, the 2u plates are aluminum and the 2.25u are steel.
DM me (/u/farticus20) if you need a silver 2u plate and I'll send it for the cost of shipping in the conus. (one 2u plate left)
jyeamans
I just DM you on Reddit asking about the silver 2u plate.
Same here. Once again received a 2u Titanium plate, instead of a 2.25u plate. We all warned you last time to check the labels, Massdrop. We already had the issue figured out for you, but you still managed to fail. I just received my first replacement plate, now I'm in for another month wait? Again stuck with an unfinished build.
Are all of us getting another replacement? THE RIGHT ONE THIS TIME?
Just received my plate wrong again. Its 2.25 instead of 2U. I'm starting to suspect the inventory is back to front. The bag is clearly marked 2U which is a bit concerning as its clearly 2.25 with 9 keys in the lower row.

All in all pretty disappointed after what felt like a year of waiting. Still got wrong parts and can't even get in time as a Christmas gift.

I received a titanium grey 2u instead of 2.25u! Let's trade! PM me: ctrl@Geekhack or /u/altgraph@reddit.
