Ok Here's the debug files. Hopefully I ran that right, it's my first time running the script.

Your kextcache and ioreg proves that AppleBacklightInjector.kext is not installed.
Also, you have the AppleBacklight patch disabled in your config.plist.

Right that's what I'm saying. My Backlight slider currently works in exactly that configuration. It does not work if I enable that patch and install AppleBacklightInjector.kext. I thought it was odd that its working in the way it is currently and wanted to know if this is a new normal for Mojave.

Problem reporting files must represent the problem scenario.

Ok, I'll get it installed and patched again later tonight and send in another problem reporting file when I have time. Might take a bit, as I'm about to leave and pick up my kid and I won't have to time to change it over again for a while. Out of curiosity was the format for my problem files completely correct?

Hi RehabMan I'm trying to patch EDID since my brightness control won't show after following your guide here and changing GFX0 > IGPU. but I can't find config.plist/Graphics/EDID/Inject and config.plist/Graphics/EDID/ProductID in my config.plist file. is that my clover not detecting my EDID?
below is my screenshot of config.plist graphics
thanks!

Typically, we are not using Inject/Intel=true anymore due to using Devices/Properties for WhateverGreen.
But if you're using Inject/Intel=true, you simply add the required EDID settings.

Is there any different between those 2 method in result?
and if still using inject/intel=true, so I just simply add the required EDID settings like I did below?

ProductID is not a valid option under Graphics/Inject.
