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
