it's amazing that this thread garnered over 2400 views, the UMID is clearly a hot topic! shame they're not widely available.

Hi to all M1 users,

I have a UMID M1 with 32GB and HSDPA which has a keyboard problem.
In the pocketables forum, noone can help.
Maybe someone here is able to help?

The problem:
The keyboard controller is not working properly.
When typing quickly, i.e. when sometimes a key is pressed while the previous ke has not been released yet, the keyboard controller generates additional unwanted key codes.

E.g. when typing "sudo" quickly, I get "suyadois". this is an extreme example.
Mostly, two keys which are side-by-side generate a third key code of a key which is also directly besides the two pressed keys. E.g. "er" generates "erw", "io" generates "iou" etc.
This is very annoying.

This happens in Linux as well as in Windows. There does not seem to be a dependencce on the EC controller firmware version. version M.31 and M.30 both do not solve the problem.

In the pocketables forum thread, we have collected quite some facts about the problem, but no solution yet.
Any hint is much appreciated!


Thank you!
