Now that I've got Mojave installed I can report that..there's actually been a regression. I patched everything for the backlight fix the first time. Backlight works sometimes, other times not. However I do not have audio at all. The only time I *do* have it is through my TV with a usb-c to HDMI dongle. That's strange because audio over that dongle didn't work in High Sierra. I tried lowering the max DVMT to 128MB but that doesn't seem to do anything.
I'll go over the steps again to make sure I didn't miss anything (although with the way this is set up, Audio should be automatic since we had to install all the kexts). I do remember seeing audio in my System Profile at the beginning before I patched my DSDT and disabled Nvidia. Should it make a difference that I didn't restart between all the patching like the guide says? I didn't think it should.
EDIT: Just restarted with Nvidia enabled and audio....works. It got hung on the first boot with something about promiscuous mode. Hard reset and I'm back in. Going to test a few things and report back.
EDIT 2: So apparently, like before, sleep is completely broken with Nvidia enabled. But that's also the only time audio works now. And when Nvidia is disabled, audio goes, but sleep is semi normal with backlight not working. I will note that I didn't install the Nvidia web drivers. I don't even think I could get those installed on Mojave using the script, but I also didn't try either.
I'm starting to think this has something to do with my newer BIOS given the differences in battery usage during sleep and the DVMT settings. It's only a matter of time before the black version gets updated.
So I contacted Razer and got them to send me the 1.06 BIOS. I'm going to flash it and test it later today and let you know what I find
