    Correct. I have 2 iKey keyboards. One has a usb on the side and one does not. The one with the usb is lighted while the other is not. The non lighted does NOT have a battery.

    but usb3.0 pin not confirm yet,
    It's just a guess I base you picture &USB hub chip.
    I'm working a pagopin pcb with a USB 3.0port , after confirm, I can tell you what I confirm.
    I want your vebg11 docker pcb front &back picture without ffc cable, if you are easy to take some pictures

    I'm in the same boat! Installed the LAN port but it doesn't show the ethernet adapter in device manager. Would you be able to relay how you managed to clone the bios to get it working?

    Unsolder BIOS chip of the source device - save it's contents to PC - unsolder BIOS chip of the target device - program it with the file saved - solder the target chip - check if it's ok - solder the source chip back.
    Cold start delay is veeery long. I will not do this cloning again with FZ-G1. CF-19's are ok though.
    You need a soldering station and hands growing from the right place. That's why I'm outsourcing this task to my friends - engineers :)))

    If you have the correct chip clamp and a tiny set of diagonal cutters, you can cut the chips off the board and then insert them into the chip clamp to read them. The good clamps do not need the full legs.
    I then program the BIOS contents onto a brand new blank chip.
    Clean the bits of the old legs off the solder pads.
    Solder on the new programmed chip and away you go.

    This is how I replaced BIOS chips on CF-19's and CF-31's.
    Not something I want to do everyday. It still requires patience and somewhat steady hands.

    [QUOTE =“ Shawn,帖子:10985415,成员:312530”]正确。我有2个iKey键盘。一个在侧面有一个USB,一个没有。带USB的一个点亮,而另一个不点亮。不发光的没有电池。[/ QUOTE]

    你可以做一些测试吗,我需要没有fz-g1的键盘上的电阻P5&P22
    1.P5&P22(仅限docker)
    你能帮助我吗
    谢谢..很抱歉让您进行更多测试
    您不需要拆卸ikeyboard
    我已经测试了fz-g1 p4&p5(约1.5v)
    因为我没有ikey键盘

    pin 5 to pin 22 is open on keyboard.

    According to your diagram pin 5 is 16v and pin 22 is short or 0 ohm.
    Any connection between pin 5 and pin 22 would result in a direct short of 16v to ground.
