Being new to mechanical boards i bought a Qisan Magicforce to lay a cheapish figurative groundfloor and get into some light tinkering and modding.
The shipped cable is a mess and it being mini-USB I am wondering how easy I can just swap out the mini-USB for a USB-C one to not invest into old tech cables and learn something in the process.
Since the mini-USB is on a seperate daughterboard there seems to be no need to change the surfice mounted device which afaik is nearly impossible anyway but I can just swap out the daughterboard for a USB-C one that I can purchase of aliexpress or amazon.
The Qisan is a bid of an oddball with its 5 pin connector cable (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=91493.0). The connections are marked S (shield, connected to the connector frame), G (ground, connected to C, D and V), C, D, V and differ from what I see on USB type C Daughterboards (V,D-,D+,G or even A1 to A12).
How do I connect these cables and make it work with the new daughterboard? Should I also add a resistor to the board to mark the keyboard as sub-device for USB-C communications?
Here are two pics of the daughterboard in question:
