Installation Instruction

In order to follow this instruction, you must know how to patch DSDT with MaciASL. If not, read this

Firstly, please add the AsusSMC patch repository to MaciASL

  • Open MaciASL and navigate to the preferences.
  • In the preferences, open up the Sources tab and click the plus button.

You need to fake one. Apply patch [als] Fake ALS

1.1.2. If your laptop has ALS

First, apply patch [als] Patch ALSS

Then find method ALSC and check if it's in device ATKD. If not, apply patch [als] Patch ALSC

1.2. Patching keyboard backlight

Choose the patch corresponding to the CPU you're using.

If your CPU is not listed, create a new issue and post your DSDT.

Reboot after finishing previous part, check which Fn keys aren't working then apply necessary patches.

Note that the patches assume your keyboard layout is:
