Hi guys can anyone guide me how to enable Asus X53E (M.B ver K53E) functions keys and startup brightness setup.

 

I tried some dsdt edits and kexts from dinesh guide but nothing works.

 

I've attached my native DSDT below. Please have a look and let me know how to proceed with it.

 

DSDT is in below post

Hi ruorbe , Thanks for reply. I don't use all those files as mine is mountain lion 10.8.5 vanilla install with clover boot loader. So all my hardware use native kexts except for trackpad n wifi. I use clover to patch my native kexts for audio n VGA.

 

Anyway I tried using ur DSDT n Asusfnkeys.kext and got only volume, sleep working.

 

Does all fn keys working on ur system with these files? Which OSX version u use n which installation method you used for it? Have you followed any guide to patch fn keys? Please let me know.

 

Thanks again :)

That's the boot pack I got for your laptop which is the same model that one I had.

 

I've always used my hack installation method and everything is working flawlesly in my laptops (speedstep, sleep, fn keys, brightness at boot…). That's the battery patch:

That's the boot pack I got for your laptop which is the same model that one I had.

 

I've always used my hack installation method and everything is working flawlesly in my laptops (speedstep, sleep, fn keys, brightness at boot…).  

that's the battery patch

Hi ruorbe...Thanks for your help. However I'm not in need of any files from your boot pack. I'm almost done with vanilla install except these function keys. In vanilla install i don't have to use all those patched kexts ur having in boot pack as my system loads native kexts and if needed clover patches it from bootloder. And also I see a Display profile folder with plist file in your boot pack, may i know what is that for ?

 

By the way I don't think your model hardware is same as mine, bcoz u seem to have Elan touch-pad in which I got synaptics touch-pad. And also DSDT looks bit different. Did you apply any edits or patches to make your function keys work? Would you mind sharing your full model and serial number of ur model? So that I can double check it.

 

I think some one like EMlyDinEsH should have a look at my clean dsdt and figure it out....!!!

 

 

Thanks Again :)

Thanks very much :)

 

Here is your dsdt patched for your fn keys and backlight along with other needed patches. You need to use my AsusBacklightPanelxxx and AsusNBFnkeys kexts from projects section to get them working.

may I see your clover config.plist, please?

 

it's what I got stored not always clover has been stable, anyway, although you didn't find it, the guy found you, enjoy your hack.

that's what it is:

Thanks a lot Dinesh ;) Now I got almost everything working, except WiFi toggle. I can turn it off but cant toggle it back on.And could you please let me know what code changes have you done for function keys and what all other patches u applied.

 

Tanx Again :)
