Congratulations, you've finished the hardware part of the build!
After flashing the keyboard, it's time to test it. If you've followed all the steps, it should work in one go. However, you may still encounter some unexpected behaviour. You can find tips on troubleshooting issues here.
Firmware and testing
Now it's time to install the firmware. You can get a headstart by downloading the hex file below, and flashing it using the QMK Toolbox. However, I advice you to learn how to customize your firmware and get started by following QMK's official Newbs Guide. There you can also read more about the Toolbox.
The firmware for the Kyria is available from the official QMK branch. You can find it in QMK’s Kyria folder, under
keyboards/splitkb/kyria. You can fork the QMK repository on Github and then change the firmware to your needs!
If customizing your firmware in code isn't your thing, you can check out the QMK Configurator. Here you can customize what each key does in an easy to use web interface. Some caveats apply, though: The OLED displays and rotary encoders won't work if you alter your firmware this way, as the configurator does not yet support these addons.

Using your Kyria
Now that you know how to customize the Kyria firmware, it's time to start using it. You can print the keymap from the QMK Configurator if you used that to more easily memorize where each key is (don't look at your keyboard to see where keys are!), or use the Keyboard Layout Editor template to make your own printout.
Want to know how to customize your encoder? Read the article How can I use a rotary encoder? for more information and code samples that you can use when you compile your own firmware.
