Timber series firmware update only needs this website and the keyboard. It does NOT require any software installation! Steps in high level:
- Enter DFU, and the keyboard will be recognized as a USB flash drive
- Use Browser to access keyboard configuration to configure the keys
- Download and update the keyboard configuration file
1. Enter DFU
There are two options for getting into DFU:
- Turn off the battery switch. The switch is under space key. Switch to the left to turn keyboard off.
- Hold the Esc key and plug in the USB cable
Assign DFU keys in advance. The DFU key is in the keyboard setting page. As in following picture:
Plug in the USB cable and press the set DFU button.
If you don't plug in USB cable, pressing the DFU button won't do anything
At this point, the keyboard is recognized as a USB flash drive. And the light in the upper left corner should light up.
Note: DFU does not have an exit key. It automatically exits and restarts the keyboard after copying the configuration file or firmware file. Otherwise, the USB cable can be unplugged to force the exit (in case the battery switch is off).
2. Configure the keys
This site provides a graphical key configuration tool, using the browser to access keyboard configuration, to configure the keys. And follow the below steps:
- Step 1: Once the DFU keyboard is recognized as a USB drive, open the USB drive and you will see a
- Step 2: Double click this file. You are directed to the configuration website. The website loads the existing keyboard configurations on which you can modify your configurations further.
Also note that you can click on the "Reset" button on the upper right of the configuration interface to load the default configuration. The default configuration has originally designed layers and function key design. You can also choose to modify based on this configuration.

The keyboard will restart immediately after the copy is completed. Now that the keys have been updated.
The Timber series dual-mode keyboard supports Bluetooth 5.0 and can pair up to five devices. The device pair/switch key can be customized.The keys can be set for each of the five devices
1. Key Setting
In the Keymap Setting section, it covers the basic methods for setting up the keys.The Bluetooth-related keys are onin the Keyboard Settings page of the keymap page. See the image below:
Bluetooth-related keys functions：
Buttons Function Dev 1-5 Pair/connect device Del Dev 1-5 Deletes a paired device Del All Dev Deletes all paired devices Disconnect Turns off the Bluetooth broadcast and disconnects the device BT Info Output the current Bluetooth connection status by typing automatically Disable BT Disable Bluetooth (Will not communicate keystrokes to the Bluetooth-connected host, does not turn off the Bluetooth connection) Enable BT Enable Bluetooth (as opposed to the aforementioned Disable Bluetooth) Toggle BT Toggle Bluetooth Enable/Disable
In the default key configuration,the bluetooth control keys are set in layer 1:
The default button to switch to layer 1 is on the right side of the left arrow key:
So by default, press 'MO(1)+1' to match device 1.
You can also redefine the key’s position.
2. Pairing and Switching
After you set the pairing button, press which key you want to pair (connect) to the device.
The first time you pair a device, search for "MuMu67" on the device you want to connect with.
Indicator lights 1-5 (the light below the QWERT) will indicate the pairing status:
- After pressing the pairing button, the corresponding indicator light will light up. For example, press the "device 1" key, and the light under the 1 key will come up
- The lights will go off when the device is connected.If the connection is timed out,the lights will go off.
3. Delete paired devices
Once you've set the delete device button, press the key corresponding to the device you want to delete.
If you are connecting to this device, it will disconnect.
4. Other Function
1. Automatic connection
- When the keyboard wakes up from sleep, if no USB cable is plugged in, it will automatically try to connect to the device successfully connected before entering the sleep.
- If you delete all paired devices, or press the "Disconnect" key to sleep without connecting devices, the keyboard will not automatically connect devices when it starts up.
2. Output Bluetooth information
You can assign a Bluetooth information button. When pressed, the current Bluetooth connection status will be output by automatic typing.
Output Implication noconn No device is currently connected. The output can only be done when the USB is connected. dev1 —— dev5 The device number of the currently connected device (dev1) —— (dev5) The device number of the currently connected device, but in the deactivated state, that is, the Stop "Bluetooth key" is pressed. The output is only available when the USB is connected.
3. Disable/enable/toggle Bluetooth
There are three bluetooth related keys: Disable bluetooth, enable Bluetooth, and toggle Bluetooth. Disable Bluetooth allows you to stop sending keystroke data to a connected device with bluetooth connectivity.
Similarly, there is a set of USB deactivate/enable/toggle keys, similar to this function, except that you control the USB data output.
One scenarios is: the USB connection and the bluetooth are connected to the same computer at the same time, you can disable the Bluetooth, only using the USB connection, otherwise the Bluetooth and the wired will pass the keystroke data.
Or: when connected by USB to one computer and bluetooth to another at the same time, you need to switch between Bluetooth and USB to control the input between the two machines. Otherwise, pressing a key will transmit to both computers simultaneously. Note that this disable state is not persisted and the keyboard is restored to an enabled state when it is restarted from sleep mode
There is a switch under space key. This is the battery switch, which turns off all power consumption after it is switched off. Switch to the left to turn keyboard off.
Charging indicator is under the Esc key, it turn white when the keyboard is in the charging mode and goes out when charging is complete.
1.3. Power display
The keyboard reports power to the operating system. Some operating systems come with Bluetooth power displays, and some third-party software can read the power output.
You can also assign a "battery voltage" button that will automatically display the battery voltage. The Battery Voltage key is in the Keyboard Settings page of the key map.
When the keyboard is asleep, the current is reduced to less than 2uA to save power. The keyboard will not enter sleep mode with the USB cable plugged in.
2.1. Auto sleep
- Automatically sleep after about 3 minutes without connecting to any device.
- If the devices have been connected, the keyboard will go to sleep after 20 minutes without keyboard interaction.
After automatic sleep, press any key to wake up the keyboard.
2.2. Manually sleeping
You can also assign a "sleep" button. Press down the sleep button to enter sleep. Press the
Gkey to wake up. The Sleep key is in the Keyboard Settings page of the key map.

A macro consists of a series of "macro steps". In the macro setting area, the operation content of the macro step is represented by the shape of a key.Macro steps can be of many types, and represent the type of keystroke action being simulated. Including：
Type Meaning Tap Press a key. Pressing a key and then lifting it immediately Key Down Pressing a key does not lift Key Up Lift the key Delay The delay is a period of time, in milliseconds String Enter a paragraph of text or symbols.
