Are there plans or is anyone working on making an ergodox setup with the backlighting of the the K-Type? Is it a matter modifying the K-Type pcb, or is there more to it than that?

Mostly I just want an ergodox with rgb backlighting that I can configure to be different on each layer.

An RGB Ergodox is a bit of an undertaking (a bunch of pcb design work) as it would require a different LED driver chip than the one currently being used (IS31FL3731C).

The K-Type uses the IS31FL3733.

I understand. I spoke with Parak about this, and after getting his input I've decided to do the design work myself. Once I'm done I'll submit a pull request in case IC is interested. I'm also the guy the asked you about KLL IDE support. I've started working on that too.

This is something I'm very interested in, has there been any progress on updating the PCBs?
