Also, should I change those PXSX ports and also delete the extra ones of those as well?

macOS only manages Intel ports, the ASMedia ones (PXSX) are not a part of your 15 limit. I'd just check the HS** ports in case physically any of those are blue/USB3 connectors and amend their "Connector" setting to match. And amend the one @Feartech indicated to "Internal" as advised.

@Bob_the_Tomato

I haven't used my USB 3.1 and USB-c ports for ages, but today I wanted to use them. No response from the pxsx ports on my hack. Sadly I'm unaware if I've lost them due to my upgrade to Big Sur last fall or due to my conversion to OC last fall. In fact, I'm pretty sure, they worked flawlessly with Catalina and Clover.

As you said in #913 you've lost connection to your pxsx-ports as well.

In my case, they seem to have disappeared in IOREg (picture below), and setting the Quirk "XhciPortLimit" from "/true" to "/false" in either way doesn't make any difference, still lost.
I remapped my Ports with Hackintool today, but used "SSDT-EC-USBX.aml" and "SSDT-UIAC.aml" instead of the USBPorts.kext. Still no Progress.

Any Idea what I'm doing wrong?

@UtterDisbelief
Could it be linked to ASMedia? My Mobo uses ASMedia 2142, and in Big Sur there seems to be a change to ASMedia 3142.

Thanks for any hint or help!

What I did to fix the lost ports was to recreate the KEXT file that Hackintool created. I went through the entire process again and they showed back up.
Thanks for your answer. That's actually what I did.
I redid the whole USB mapping part, and tried it in both ways (USBPorts.kext, or with SSDT-UIAC.aml).
What worries me most, is that the PXSX-Ports were already gone, when I restarted the mapping from scratch, they never have shown up.

The PXSX ports should have nothing to do with the port mapping as @UtterDisbelief suggested a few posts back. The PXSX ports are on a ASmedia controller maybe the driver that controlled them is no longer in big sur! I only have Z370 systems but the ASmedia controller in both of them just works no port mapping required.

Do you have the device properties for the controller listed in Opencore? If you do not try adding the ASmedia controller to your device properties in your config.plist!

Yes, so PXSXPorts aren't connected to the Ports mapping procedure. I've added all my devices to my config.plist in OC, as you can see in the picture beneath. Do you think I shouldn't add the ASMedia devices to my config.plist?
Thanks for your help, appreciate it.

No, I think you should add it but as you said it is there. What does it show in your system information PCI? Does it show that the driver is loaded?

Here's how it looks like in system information.

I've also read another thread on this topic, but for me the solution with a ASMedia.kext didn't work.
Could the loss of the usb 3.1 ports be, because I didn't configure my "SSDT-EC-USBX-DESKTOP.aml" personally?

Thanks
