Used this guide for brightness control : https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-patching-dsdt-ssdt-for-laptop-backlight-control.152659/

Loaded
DSDTmod.dsl
patched with "Brightness Fix"
then saved to DSDT.aml
and copied DSDT.aml and IntelBacklight.kext to respective dirs

not working, do I have instead to use ACPIBacklight.kext???
the guide you followed is for El Capitan

you need to use the High Sierra guide:

Ok that's why it was not working....

Thanks for the new guide, this one is too complex for me :(
yep!

things changed and the guide had to be changed to account for the change

(you may need to start off with a clean DSDT as the patch is no longer required)

Great progress today, just two things missing now, fn keys and brightness.

Do I need a kext for function keys?

yes, if you are patching your DSDT, you will need the following kext and also attached is some dsdt patches to make the brightness keys to work (the patches worked for me when i was patching dsdt)

Just adding the kext make the fn keys work because it was already patched for that :)

Now two more things, keyboard backlight and brightness controls...
