LCD Brightness Value Reset after every boot


Recommended Posts

I am having problem with my lcd brightness value reset to full brightness on everyboot.

I am running hackintosh High Sierra on a Lenovo x260.

Clover is installed as UEFI only with rc scripts and using EMUVariable driver for nvram emulation. I can confirm nvram emulation is working from the nvram - p output of terminal as below. Right now, all values are retained such as volume level and other ids, except for the lcd brightness value. I am using AppleBacklightInjector kext for my lcd and patched ssdt. I am also attaching my config, kexts,ssd/dsdt in clover. Can anyone advice what should I do?

And, if it doesn't work even after adding a Fake ALS device you might wanna reset hardware NVRAM from clover EFI shell.


How to do it:

  • At clover boot screen select UEFI Shell option

In that, type:

# For cd to EFI voulme

# For cd to EFI dir
cd EFI

# For dumping vars
dmpstore -all -s somefile.txt

# Now, when it is dumping the vars you need to take a note of your drive's GUID (use a phone to record)

# Once you know the GUID, use
dmpstore -d -guid YOUR-GUID-GOES-HERE

Hi, I the tips, got the SSDT-ALS0 file added to Clover>ACPI>Patched.
I rebooted and the same thing, defaults to full brightness. I also deleted the clover nvram.plist to force it to generate a new one, did reboot couple of times but still the same problem. I'm out of ideas what to do. Can you help me out. I am attaching my SSDT-PNLF, SSDT-ALS0, config.plist and nvram.plist.
