Hi RehabMan and thanks for your work so far!
Please clear me up, on a 8 Series mobos under Sierra it was enough to edit the DSDT to exclude the unused HS+SS ports to have the total number of 15 ports and rename the device to XHC. This way no kexts or patches were needed.
Could you clear me up how it is under Mojave 10.14.4 with 3xx Series mobo ?
Is the kext injector needed? What is the new UIAC device for? Isn't it enough to just delete the unused ports anymore in the XHC.RHUB?

Can you confirm that by doing this 3 steps in the DSDT USB2/3 will work without any kexts or patches:
device is named to XHC,
ports number is reduced to the total of 15 in the XHC.RHUB,
_DSM with the right device-id is injected to XHC

I have High Sierra 10.13.6 up & running on the Asus ROG G51J laptop

All is good except for

USB 2
Atheros ethernet
Realtek sound card
Brightness control
Shutdown
Restart
Stuttering HDMI audio

The original wifi/bluetooth module was replaced with the Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (7.77.37.31.1a9). It works flawlessly

The DSDT SSDT files were extracted using the F4 Clover method

Enclosed in the zip file is

EFI folder
Compiling done so far on the ACPI files
Asus ROG G51J IORegistryExplorer output
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q720 @ 1.60GHz SSDT data

Your assistance in helping me solve these problems would be greatly appreciated

I hope this helps others who have the same laptop

Cheers
