When installing Linux, the sound is not working on my Asus ROG Strix G16 (2023) G614JU

This is a known issue. I tried solving it using this guide, but failed, even after following all the steps, still the sound didn’t work.

I think it’s better to wait for a proper update fixing this issue rather than tampering in the kernel and system internals.

If you know any other proper way to solve this issue please share it with me.

Wait until the patch gets into mainline and the latest linux-firmware is pushed. The patch is authored by a cirrus representative, you just have to be patient.

Please install either 6.4.15 or 6.5.2 kernels as we have backported those fixes there already. You may find those in unstable branch.

When will those 6.5.2 kernels be released as stable ?

Our internal gaming edition already has those kernels active and they work fine with ASUS ROG ALLY already. You can simply switch branches and get the update: Switching Branches - Manjaro

I have updated to the unstable branch, rebooted and still the sound is not working !

The guide i posted above said that this problem happens with 2023 laptops, maybe you meant Asus laptops prior to 2023.

Did you apply any DSDT overrides? If so, you have to remove them. We have applied the following patches on 6.5 series:

You can contact Luke to see if your device is not yet added to his patch. Else check with Stefan from Cirrus. He also made a patch.

Did you apply any DSDT overrides?

No i didn’t change anything in the system, the Manjaro version is still fresh, i have been using Manjaro since only yesterday.

You can contact Luke

I posted a question in fluke’s discord server and waiting for response.

Well, I browsed thru the article. Since 6.4.15 and 6.5.2 has those needed patches applied it might work. You may still need to use a ssdt patch for your AMP or a matching firmware. Simply check if someone has the same laptop and how far he got with it. Having latest ASUS hardware may not always work with Linux when released. Also ASUS is not supportive of Linux, hence a community has to step in.

Asus has released a BIOS firmware update G614JU.318 on 2023/09/05

that might include the SSDT patch

I downloaded and installed the firmware using the “ASUS EZ Flash Utility”. It did not fix the sound problem.

A firmware from ASUS might not fix it. As ASUS is not planning to add the missing DST info at all. That is why Cirrus and the Linux community had to step in. A SSDT patch or DSDT patch only exists on Linux side. Both are used to fix issues ACPI tables don’t provide.

is the problem something in the kernel or configuration files, meaning, do i have to wait for a kernel update or the problem will not be fixed unless i explicitly change something in the configurations of the system ?

Hey guys, Have there been any updates or fixes since Sep? I have spent days scouring the internet trying every solution, but no luck. I kinda regret buying this laptop.

The fix for this issue is currently being added to the Linux kernel. Some users have experienced fixes. I am currently using 6.5.0 kernel. There in no sound, so i am using my headphones for sound … for now.

The laptop is powerful (24 cores) and it’s material is good quality. I originally bought it for my work cuz it has powerful CPU, not mainly for gaming. But i play some open source games like TDM, Veloren, 0ad and BAR. Performance is very good with these games especially TDM since it’s very light weighted.

Thanks for highlighting that. I just updated the BIOS using a FAT32 USB stick, but still the sound is not working. This is a kernel issue as far as i know, so it will only be solved in one of the kernel updates.

It’s annoying tho that the firmware updates are closed source (malware) and we can’t easily know what ASUS is injecting into our devices behind the scenes.

Asus firmware updates only state: ‘Optimize system performance’ (same as other manufacturers)
and would not advise if onboard audio hardware had been patched

Any audio ‘malware’ that may be included on a proprietary OS (Dolby Atmos, AI noise-canceling* technology, Microsoft Cortana) would not work on Linux

ALSA developers have signed off more patches for CS35L41 Amplifiers on Asus systems earlier today
LKML: Stefan Binding: [PATCH v1 1/2] ALSA: hda/realtek: Add quirks for ASUS 2024 Zenbooks

I suggest you find the Asus subsystem ID code for the audio device: lspci -vnnd 8086:7a50:0403
The first 4 digits of this code will be 1043 for Asus - [1043:nnnn]
The 2nd 4 digits identify the audio codec and can be used to check kernel mailing list and documentation for a patch

I tried to use the “No sound in 2023” Patch from Asus-Linux and followed the provided instructions, but unfortunately, the sound still did not work, even though it was confirmed as working on their end during testing. FYI I’m using Ubuntu 22.4

Has someone tried this patch and got it to work maybe?
