Closing statements

Posted by Dirk (Creator)


I hope you all got your TOHKBD and all is working as it should! The end of my todo list is nearly in sight, so it seemed like a good time to make some closing statements for this project and wrap it all up!


I would like to start off with a big thanks to you! Your support has made it happen, your ideas, suggestions and input has made this project to what is has become. A real DIT-project!

Also, thanks to Kimmo and Andrew, you guys are awesome.

Jolla has also done a lot of behind-the-scenes help, especially with integrating a lot of features in the new SFOS2.0, that the TOHKBD takes advantage of. Lastu, thanks for the nice backplates and the very pleasant and friendly business. Thanks David from Longsun for manufacturing the keypads and thanks to all of my anonymous assembly minions.

Not quite perfect yet?

In case there is something wrong with your TOHKBD, I promised to fix something for you or send you something, but it hasn't arrived yet? Anything I should do?

Please let me know. Logistics of 1500+ custom keyboards with personal requests, repairs, after-sales, minion management, quality control, a lot of stuff to do for a one-man army. It could be I missed some request or something got lost in my todo list. If so, send me an email at and I will fix it asap!

Spares for repairs

That rhymes! In case you have done some repairs, been hacking or want to build a second keyboard yourself, in  my shop you can buy all the spare parts I have left! Check it out here.


Tablet stuff

In case you ordered your tablet and don't want to shatter your screen when it is in your backpack or do not like to scratch it in general? I have made a carbon casing for it, which is on IGG right now. Real carbon, real protection, really Funky.

      Just wanted to say thanks to all of you who made this project a reality. I pledged for a fully assembled TOHKBD2, received it, found it that it had some issues with some of the keys, send it to Dirk, who kindly fixed it and send it back to me promptly and since then I have enjoyed tyoing in my Jolla Phone with this excellent physical keyboard that works as expected and shows the strength of community and #unlike #Linux-based #open #SailfishOS and the Jolla company who made it available to all #open advocates and supporters. :)

      I got mine, but it doesn't work. It's currently just a very expensive lump of plastic. I've been meaning to look into *why* it doesn't work, but I've been away for long periods since it arrived and I haven't had the time.

      Hi I'd like to know if there are some keyboards still not sent, as I have not yet received my azerty keyboard. I was guessing this was probably due to the issues that happened with the azerty keyboards?
