Sound not working in Asus ROG Strix G16 (2023) G614JU

I found the original patch for this codec from July by searching LKML for “SND_PCI_QUIRK(0x1043, 0x1c9f”

LKML: Sasha Levin: [PATCH AUTOSEL 6.4 38/40] ALSA: hda/realtek: Add quirk for ASUS ROG G614Jx
Adds the required quirk to enable the Cirrus amp and correct pins on the ASUS ROG G614J series which uses an SPI connected Cirrus amp.

While this works if the related _DSD properties are made available, these aren’t included in the ACPI of these laptops (yet).

so this patch has probably been included in Manjaro kernels for the last few months

I suggest check properties stored in the _DSD of the ACPI. again (as suggested in the guide in post #1) to see if anything has changed

dmesg | grep _DSD

Same here, on a ROG Strix G614JZ

welcome to Manjaro forum @Fustigate

I suggest you update BIOS to version 321 released 2023/11/10
ROG Strix G16 (2023) | ROG - Republic of Gamers

then get system information

inxi -Fazy

and ALSA information

sudo --upload

and create a new topic to post the information

As a new user you will probably need to post link to ALSA data in pre-formatted text

Hello, new user here!
I have the exact same problem with the exact same product g614jU.

I tried the kernels suggested above(6.4.15 or 6.5.2), apparently this laptop is not on the patched laptops list.

From asus-linux patch

The currently added laptops are:
- ASUS GS650P,   i2c
- ASUS GA402X,   i2c
- ASUS GU604V,   spi
- ASUS GU603V,   spi
- ASUS GV601V,   spi
- ASUS GZ301V,   spi
- ASUS G614J,    spi
- ASUS G634J,    spi
- ASUS G614JI,   spi
- ASUS G713P,    i2c
- ASUS H7604JV,  spi

Will g614jU be added or am i missing something out?

I am now using Kubuntu cuz i don’t like Manjaro’s package manager.
But anyways, i tried updating to kernel 6.6.4 using the .deb packages cuz some users said it fix their sound problem on other Asus models but still it didn’t fix the problem.

Maybe this will be fixed in the near future. I have been using me headphones as a speaker since i bought that laptop.

Kenel mailing list shows a number of patches for CS35l41 smart amplifiers on Asus 2023 laptops were added to the kernel yesterday

LKML: Stefan Binding: [PATCH v1 3/7] ALSA: hda/realtek: Add quirks for ASUS ROG 2023 models


Patches will be available in kernel v6.7 soon and will probably be back-ported to LTS kernels

Damn my pc is in the the list G614JU

Thanks for these great news

I am using kernel 6.5.0-14-generic (64-bit), how can i know when will these patches take effect ?

Kernel 6.5 has been marked End Of Life and will not be patched

ASUS G614JU/JV/JI patch is available in kernel 6.7.0rc7, but that has only been released to Manjaro unstable branch

I suggest you install kernel 6.6 using Manjaro Settings Manager GUI or

sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux66

and wait for the patches to be back-ported

I just installed the kernel amd64 deb packages from here, and now the sound works fine

Yws. 6.7 kernel series added a lot of fixes for similar Asus laptops.
