Did you get your keyboard backlight toggle working?
Yes, I used blackdragon74's ROG-HID driver, which only works on Catalina. https://github.com/black-dragon74/ROG-HID

1. Enable sip without kext enforcement "csrutil enable --without kext" or disable completely.
2. Move ROG-HID.app to /Applications
3. Open and press "Activate".
4. Open System Preferences, Security, And click allow kext to load (bottom of window).
5. Go back to ROG-HID and click activate again.
6. Reboot.

Actually I did but got kernel panic.

Edit: Solved after booting into safe mode.
However macOS Catalina is stuck at prohibited sign with corrupted texts. I installed OC to efi to check if it is USB error but no success.
Make sure both your ig-platform-id+device-id, and smbios information is correct.
Also make sure that you selected the Laptop KabyLake config, and not desktop/coffee/skylake.

I made the bootloader USB using OC Gen-X. Can you please have a look at it?

You haven't added any ACPI files, nor any ACPI files, nor any device properties, nor any of the kexts that are recommended. I suggest you add those.. If you're going for a barebones boot-up, then please as a minimum use the ACPI patches and files.

Add debug=0x100 to boot-args (stop reboot after panic).
Add acpi patches, acpi files.
Add kexts.
Properly fill out SMBIOS information.
You won't need XHCIPortLimit quirk if using UsbInjectAll+SSDT-UIAC.kext or USBPorts.kext.

Can someone who's got this working on the fx503vd please post the entire efi folder? The touchpad doesnt work and when I include the kexts for that, clover hangs when I press enter on the OSX Install boot partition. If I dont include the kexts it boots just fine, but then the touchpad doesnt work
