Hi @brandonchang

 

Mine is Poseidon ZX and I have the same problems.

I have done all the 0-4 steps but the problems still there.  e -->'e '

 

Any update? thank you!

Poseidon ZX is another product. The driver only matches Poseidon Z.

I don't have Poseidon ZX, so I will need additional information from you. Currently I'm working on some Linux kernel bug fix, so probably will not have a chance to work on this in a week or so.

 

Please unplug your Poseidon ZX keyboard and launch IORegistryExplorer in the driver package. Plug in your keyboard, you will be able to see some new stuff in IORegistryExplorer in green color. You can refer to the picture below as an example. You won't be able to see TtEsportsUSBHIDDriver because it won't load for Poseidon ZX. You will see "IOUSBHIDDriver" instead. Click on it in the left panel, and you should be seeing "VendorID" as "0x566" in the right panel. If the vendor ID is not 0x566, then you didn't click on the right entry in the left panel.

 

IORegistryExplorer will generate two interfaces for the keyboard. Please send me screenshots (Command+Option+4) for both of the interfaces like the one I took (I only took the screenshot for interface 0, you will need to do it for both). And it would be nice if you can double click on the data of "ReportDecriptor" in the right panel and copy the contents for me so that I don't need to do a manual OCR from the screenshots.

 

One thing I want to mention is that I don't have a Poseidon ZX so I won't be able to test the driver at all.

Thank you for the information. Is there anyway that you can post original size pictures? Looks like the pictures are resized.

Just give you guys a heads up, I'm working on the ZX driver right now.

I've been working on my company stuff for 11x7, hardly had any time to work on this.

Hi guys, please try the ZX driver I just composed.

 

Please note that this driver is untested since I don't have a ZX keyboard. And this driver is not the same as the Poseidon Z driver in my first post. This driver can only be used on Poseidon ZX. The driver in the first post can only be used on Poseidon Z. As I said, they are distinct products.

 

Driver download: http://cl.ly/2V351b281k39

 

Please follow the exact same guidance in the first post to install the driver. The only difference is the name of the driver. This driver has the name PoseidonZXUSBHIDDriver.kext.

 

If for any reason the driver fails and the system crashes (which is possible because the driver is not tested and the code runs in the kernel), please follow the 2nd post the recover.

Brandon,

 

Thanks so much for making this.  I bought the keyboard thinking that it would work on the Mac and your driver saved me $$$!!  Thanks so much again.

 

I know this is early and perhaps presumptuous, but would you consider releasing a new driver for El Capitan in the future? 

 

Again, you're awesome!

It won't work for myself.

 

After step "0" I reboot the laptop and hold "Command" "Option" "P" & "R"

 

then follow the 1 to 4 steps and reboot the laptop again but still does not work
