It didn't work. I have ended up with black screen (no 3 min. brightness back with coffelake and UHD630). Moved AppleGFXHDA.kext back in recovery mode.

Follow the instructions above and
Just try to disable ( change HDAS to HDEF ) in config.plist
Hope it will work

Please read carefully and follow

1- Use this release from AppleALC.kext with Lilu kext to S/L/E

https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleALC/releases/download/1.3.2/1.3.2.RELEASE.zip

2-Disable all ALC patches from config.plist ( kernel and kext patches )

3- may or may not need codeccommander.kext from Rehabman to L/E

https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-eapd-codec-commander/downloads/

4- important " remove any AppleALC.kext from Clover 》kexts》other

Recommend use kextbeast.app and follow the instructions when install kexts

https://www.tonymacx86.com/resources/kextbeast-2-0-1.310/

Reboot and enjoy

I was always told that kexts should be installed to /Library/Extensions/ and NOT /System/Library/Extensions/.

You are right but
AppleALC.kext is originally existed in S/L/E
Maybe Lilu.kext should go to L/E but this kext is essential one so I leave it in S/L/E
But all other kexts I put in L/E

Maybe I am wrong but I used to do that without any issues for both laptop and desktop

AppleALC is not included with macOS. It was never originally in /System/Library/Extensions/ or /LIbrary/Extensions/.

AppleALC.kext is not a native Apple kext. If you have it installed somewhere, it is because you installed it there.
Do not confuse AppleALC.kext with AppleHDA.kext.

As per FAQ, hack kexts on 10.11 and later should go to /L/E:

That specific problem is not solved. And is off-topic here.
Read here:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/black-screen-3-minutes-after-booting-coffeelake-uhd-630.261131/

If you wish to further address your audio configuration, you will need to attach PR files as per FAQ.
None attached.

I now that 3 min. brightness problem is not solved and my intention was not to discuss that topic. I was just telling you the result of your suggestion of removing AppleGFXHDA.kext.
Do you have any other ideas?
