*******************************************************************
Hello,

For those interested i was able to install Mojave on my ASUS ROG STRIX G531GT hackintosh after patching DSDT.
In order to successful patch the DSDT I needed to update to the latest BIOS firmware provided by ASUS.

Currently it only boot to macOS desktop, no i2c mouse support, no wifi yet and the screen light is dimmed after half of the boot process, i will fix some of issues in the next future.

For those who wants to give a try i have attached my EFI folder.

Best regards.

@niwatori please follow instruction from AsusSMC repo at https://github.com/hieplpvip/AsusSMC/wiki/Installation-Instruction
Basically, you should add this AsusSMC patches repository to your maciasl
https://github.com/hieplpvip/AsusSMC/blob/master/.maciasl

Or apply by hand those three which i did, if you use linux/unix i have attached a .patch file for you to apply on your DSDT
https://github.com/hieplpvip/AsusSMC/blob/master/patches/f7.txt
https://github.com/hieplpvip/AsusSMC/blob/master/patches/f8.txt
https://github.com/hieplpvip/AsusSMC/blob/master/patches/media_arrow.txt

Plus ALS sensor patch, depends on if your ASUS has one or not, mine does not have one, so, the attached patch does use the fake als sensor patch.

Hi @serdeliuk, many thanks for your work!

Could you provide commands what you use to decompile DSDT? And version of maciasl to.

I tried it by guide, but had a many errors.

And second question, which bios version you use? 305?
