Hiya, I have some trouble while using the latest Lilu + Whatevergreen + AddPNLF in Clover. The maximum brightness is very low (say 50% or less of what it should be). The slider does work, but only to darker.

When I use the PNLF.ssdt instead of AddPFNL in Clover, there is no brightness slider. When I use IntelBacklightFixup.kext (with or without PNLF.ssdt) separately it doesn't work either. I now assume IBF.kext is ncluded in Whatevergreen anyway.

I tried in Clover:
- enable_cfl_backlight_fix (boot-arg)
- Graphics/InjectEDID + ProductID: 9c7c
- SetIntelBacklight + SetIntelMaxBacklight (no value, not needed according to Whatevergreen Wiki)

I tried looking into using SSDT-RMCF but honestly I don't know where to go with it.

Hopefully you can help me find a fix!

PS: Laptop is HP Pavilion 15-cx0500nd (Intel Core i7-8750H, HD630)

Thank you for getting back to me. Someone on Olarila suggested that for my laptop another setup is needed, that is Whatevergreen + PNLF patch from Rehab's laptop distro, straight into DSDT. This worked, after making sure IntelBacklightFixup.kext was actually removed from (S)/L/E. Enabling "SetIntelBacklight" and "SetIntelMaxBacklight" fixed extremely low brightness.

As far as I know IntelBacklight kexts are now part of Whatevergreen.
