Default A2k keyboard on A4k

ill keep this short

but one dead peze keyboard and some soldering later...

im typing on my miggy...

ill remove the solders later, and crimp on a connector later. that way it can easily be reverted to a a2k keyboard.

this is the type with red amy keys.

im writing very slowly since the keys and box are in the dishwasher!

im a noob on miggy mods. but i hope there will be more to come!

For anyone else considering doing this. You can buy external A2k to A4k keyboard adapters for as little as 1.

They are just passive AT to PS2 adapters available everywhere.

No need for soldering etc.

I know. I just couldn't be bothered with ordering one and waiting for it in the mail.

Wanted to test it out asap.

Also, I'm planning on crimping on a connector instead, like the one on the A2000 cable. So that it can be reverted when I get my norwegian a4k keyboard fixed.
