Using A1000 Keyboard on A2000

Currently have an A2000 without keyboard... All I have is an A1000 KB.

I've looked at multiple pinouts on the web and can't get this to work.

When I plug the keyboard in, it either a)does nothing or b)resets, and then boots after cable is removed.

I'm pretty sure I had Ground a +5V connected properly. I tried swapping Clock and Data just in case, same problems.

Has anyone been able to accomplish this? And can you share which wires you hooked where?

Keep in mind that you have to be specific when speaking about the A2000, if it is the motherboard side, or the cable side of the connection. And you have to be specific about the connector pinout on the port on the A1000 keyboard, not the port on the A1000.

I have successfully used the A2000 keyboard on the A1000 (since these are quite rare), so technically the other way round should work just as fine. You should double check all the connections. Maybe you accidentally misread the pinout due to solder side/plug side pinouts. Always pay attention to that.
