Does anybody have any advice re "Adding audio codec AppleALC" - any tutorials?

Have learnt that the Realtek S1200A codec (ASUS TUF Z390M-PRO) is not supported by AppleALC, at least not yet.

Seems like adding this codec to AppleALC would open up a few options for anyone with this and similar boards.

TIA

No such codec, typo. AppleALC.kext supports ALC1220A (device_id: 1168), verify.

Must be some ASUS marketing language - see Audio spec. Attaching IOreg text file (device-id: <48 a3 00 00> and EFI.zip
System has latest AppleALC and Lilu kexts in /Library/Extensions -> layout-id: <07 ...

Thanks.

Not supported at this time
Attach a codec dump
Unfortunately, board is RMA back to ASUS - this could take a while.

Back in business -> audio codec dump attached for S1200A (ASUS TUF Z390M-PRO Wi-Fi)

Update:
Codec dump retrieved from Linux terminal: cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 > ~/Desktop/codec_dump.txt

IOReg shows no AppleALC or Lilu??
Post #7/AppleALC.kext is v1.3.4. 1.3.8??
Remove AppleALC.kext and LiLu.kext from kexts/Other
Install AppleALC.kext_v1.3.4 and Lilu.kext_v1.2.8 to /L/E with KextBeast or similar

Install AppleALC.kext_v1.3.4 and Lilu.kext_v1.2.8 to /L/E with KextBeast or similar
Done.

Attaching new IOReg (Sys Def = iMac18,2) shows AppleALC 1.3.4 and Lilu 1.2.8; spoofs layout-id <07 ...
No output devices found in Sound.

Question: does Kextbeast install require SIP change?
