KMX1 User's Guide

All of Joe's KeyMakers KMX1, KMX1 PRO and KMX1 PRO S are shipped NOT Activated.

KMX1 will do NOTHING useful until it has been activated !

Before you can use your KMX1 series board you must first Activate it.

KMX1 series board will do nothing useful until it has been Activated, if powered up and not Activated, the KMX1 board will display a constantly flashing Activity LED which is it's way of telling you it has not been Activated.

The Zap SVP will NOT work until after the KMX1 series board has been Activated.

Put simply, do not waste your time trying to use the KMX1 series board until after it has been Activated.

The following videos use earlier board revisions with Red colour
Activity LED, current V4 board has Blue Activity Led

Activation involves using a PC or Laptop - another PC or Laptop -, NOT your Locked ThinkPad which obviously cannot run any programs.

On that other PC or Laptop you will need to install Drivers for KMX1 USB interface.

You will then need to install a Terminal Program and connect the KMX1 board via a USB cable to that PC or Laptop so that you can see on the PC or Laptop screen messages displayed by KMX1 and type in commands and Activation Product Key which will be received by the KMX1 board.

KMX1 will do NOTHING useful until it has been activated !

AFTER you have COMPLETED ACTIVATION Follow this link to start using your KMX1 to unlock a TP

Note that you DO NOT need to run any software on your LOCKED TP, obviously you cannot run any software on a locked TP.

You will need ANOTHER PC OR LAPTOP NOT your locked TP to run Terminal software to complete the Activation of your KMX1.

It is recommended that until you are thoroughly familiar with using your KMX1 that you use KMX1 with a second PC simply because you will benefit from the detailed instructions and detailed error messages displayed on your PC. Once you are familiar with your KMX1 then you can use it with only the Zap SVP button or with the KMX-LCD

After Activation has been completed AND you are familiar withe the operation of your KMX1 then -  you do NOT need a second PC or laptop when using the KMX1 Zap SVP button or when using KMX1 together with the KMX-LCD

KMX1 series can be used in 3 different ways to unlock a TP, KMX1 Zap, KMX1 + LCD and KMX1 + PC

KMX1 hardware revision can be one of the 4 boards depicted below which are all functionally identical
