Hi. I'm requesting help to fix keyboard backlight, Fn keys and sleep issues on my Asus ROG FX553VE-DM318T laptop.

Specifications
  • Intel i7-7700HQ
  • 39.62cm(15.6) (16:9) LED backlit FHD (1920x1080) 60Hz
  • 1 TB HDD
  • M.2 NVMe SSD slot - no SSD provided, not upgraded
  • 2x8GB RAM - stock 8GB
  • Intel HD630, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
  • ELAN1200 trackpad

Working
  • Keyboard
  • Trackpad
  • Display backlight slider
  • Sound - VoodooHDA
  • Battery status
  • RT2870 USB wifi

Not Working
  • Built-in RT M.2 wifi
  • Keyboard backlight and Fn keys
  • Freezes after resuming from sleep

I've tried the following so far to fix keyboard backlight and Fn keys:
  1. AsusNBFnKeys.kext - Did not work
  2. VoodooI2CHID - fixed ELAN1200 trackpad
  3. Remove Apple LPSS kexts - machine restarts
Please tell me how I can fix these issues. Thanks.

https://github.com/hieplpvip/AsusSMC may help instead of AsusNBFnKeys.kext

@Feartech I'm using FakeSMC while that uses VirtualSMC. How do I know what FakeSMC dependents I have to replace to switch to VirtualSMC?

Many thanks.
yes, replace fakesmc with virtualsmc:
best read up on that one, also you may need a lilufriend kext as well

Hey,

I applied this DSDT patch I found on another website that got my keyboard backlight to work on my ROG laptop. But there is just one unique light value, no dimming levels. To use with AsusNBFnKeys.kext.
I am not a dev person and don't understand very well the language used. So make all the appropriate backups ect.. before you try.

Hope it helps you!
Cheers

@aharshac This model use USB-HID as keyboard interface. Keyboard backlight is controlled by this interface, too. The keyboard is ITE in port HS11 of XHC.

I'm working on a driver for this, and I need some testers when I finish. Feel free to contact me.
