New Feature: Clear Bluetooth Pairing via Keycombo

A project log for Wireless BLE Kinesis Advantage (Custom Controller)

Replaces the stock controller with an nRF52 BLE SOC and MCP23S17 io expander. BLE Kinesis with great (few months) battery life.

Ran into connectivity issues again recently. This is the 2nd time in 4 months or so. I have a feeling it's to do with Mac OS' bluetooth not playing nicely with the nrf52 when it sleeps. But since it's such an easy fix and happens so sporadically, I'm not too inclined to investigate further.

Anyway, as promised I just implemented a key-combo to reset bluetooth pairing:

RIGHT SHIFT + LEFT CMD + ESC

The keyboard LEDs should flash three times to indicate all bluetooth pairings have been cleared.

Then just delete the keyboard from your computer's bluetooth and re-pair.
