Question about Asus G53JW

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just an observation about the keyboard brightness Fn key, in fact when adding these lines to the DSDT :

 

Device (SMC) // We will be faking up some of SMC Devices which are used in MacBookAir

{

Device (ALS0) // Ambient Light Sensor , we'll be faking this up , to get the ambient sensor to work , will find a way to link with cam

{

Name (_HID, "ACPI0008") //The ID used in macbook air

Name (_CID, "smc-als") // The one which talks with the ALS kext

Method (_ALI, 0, NotSerialized)

{

Return (0x012C)

}

Name (_ALR, Package (0x03)

{

Package (0x02)

{

0x46,

0x00

},

Package (0x02)

{

0x64,

0x012C

},

Package (0x02)

{

0x96,

0x03E8

}

})

}

 

 

The bezel activates for the keyboard backlight ( without affecting the lights themselves), so i was wondering if we could activate the screen brightness control and keyboard backlight adding something else to that. Seems that they are blocked by the lack of sensor lines in the DSDT maybe.

Just wondering...

Although maybe not the best solution for laptop users due to the power saving with dimming the screen backlighting, I figured I'd mention it. On desktop hack I use shades.app with it mapped to brightness keys on apple bluetooth keyboard to get brightness control, also can change the tint color it uses to whatever you want where a darker blue gives a nice soothing effect to sore eyes when you just turn the brightness down a couple notches.

I'm also using shades with the hotkeys mapping, still im trying to get brightness work since i started hackintoshing with no results, so any idea gives me some hope. Well for now, shades FTW!

    • Hi,   I still have (and always had) a weird problem with the nvidia card, and I don't know if it is a power unit issue or a driver issue. Do you have such a problem, too:   Sometimes the screen goes black, for example if I scroll a specific webpage. It turns then on again, and off again. Then it may disappear and everyathing works fine again. Or not. Usually a reboot will let this problem disappear. There is no obvious heavy cpu/power usage while this happens.   Do you know this problem? Does it sound like a driver problem?   I use a gt1050 2gb and a 4k monitor connected thru DP.

    • So, i am thinking about pubblishing the stable release of tinu 2.0, just with a few minor chenges from the last pre-release, and to focus my work on the next one, i have just chenged a couple of UI things for the stable release and add a warning message if you try to use a time machine disk as a target drive to create the macOS install media, for the release that will come after the stable 2.0 release (and maybe also after a bug fix release for the 2.0 if needed) i am trying to use the system apis to manage the tasks which needs special priviladges to be executed, instead of the "sudo" based system which i am using now, this will make the application more secure and reliable, and also you will have to do the authentication only one time, when creating an install media, and using this system maybe i can also pubblish the application on the app store (obviusly just a limited version for mac users, but a version with all the features unlocked will be always available outside the app store and will have all the hackintosh-friendly features as well). But to do that i need to re-write a large amount of code into the app, because all the tasks which needs special permitions needs to be re-implemented differently, so that's why i do not want to use this in the 2.0 release, so because i am going to finish with tinu 2.0 tell me every complain or problem you are having with the latest pre-release or the latest release of tinu, so i can work on that before releaseing the stable 2.0 version
