Also the enable-cfl-backlight-fix should be in Devices-Properties, not in the PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x02,0).
This is the right place to inject, on IGPU device(config > Devices > Properties > PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x02,0). Didn’t look at his files yet but guess he didn’t implement it correctly. And yes, old SSDT-PNLF will not work.

Also not sure if it's the same for your laptop but I believe that the UHD630 needs to have EDID injected with the product code.
Not necessarily.

Hmmm, I have mine outside of that dictionary and it's working. I went off of your last set of instructions, it looked like it needed to be it's own property under Devices-Properties.

Looks like it works either way. But I'll update mine to include it under PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x02,0)

I am already using the latest from your bitbucket so I don't know why they are telling me that I am not using the right one.
The latest SSDT-PNLF is not on bitbucket.
It is on github: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config
(look in hotpatch)

Stable version is on bitbucket in the AppleBacklightFixup package.
But experimental/latest versions, such as required by this thread, exist at github hotpatch project.
When the latest version is proven stable, it will be migrated to other locations such as the AppleBacklightFixup package.

Ok thanks you very much.
Sorry for my incompetence but I need to copy SSDT-PNLF.dsl to ACPI/patched or I have to patch/build something?

You need to open the new SSDT-PNLF.dsl in MaciASL and then save it as a AML file. Then copy the newly saved AML version of SSDT-PNLF over to ACPI-Patched and replace the current one you're using

If you clone the repo, you can use 'make' to build all *.dsl to .aml in ./build.
Or open in MaciASL and save to .aml (ACPI Machine Language Binary).
Basics of MaciASL usage are here:

Done but I boot to black screen 1/2 of the time :banghead:
