The discussion can be found here:
- The poor CalcProgrammer1 bricked his board for us while researching..
- Aura Sync uses the I2C protocol, and it's possible to set the LEDs through it (here from linux).
- The Aura Service is doing the actual work, the .exe just calls the service to do the work for it.
- The Aura utility has an XML file which can be edited, after the service is restarted, the colors are applied.
- Apparently there already is an ASUS WMI Linux driver.
- CalcProgrammer1 created a custom Linux Kernel to make its I2C protocol more responsive.
- Codes of all modes
- Turns out the protocol for G.Skill RAM is the same as the Aura controller, this was the result.
- Since Windows doesn't have I2C drivers, ASUS made userspace drivers. This is what complicates the cross-platform-ness.
- Full DRAM control sample
At this point the Aura Sync SDK is released.
- Asus said they were looking into DRAM support (1 year ago).
This leaves us with a partial working branch working on specific chipset, board and bios firmware combinations. It's possible to get it working if you identify your I2C controller on Linux. They're almost there, but it still needs some more work to generalize it for any system.
