No disassembled files found. Attach the original+disassembled files+screenshot where you couldn't find the off method.

Is wrong. The directory isn't active. The directory must be a working directory. Follow the guide.

I used cd /Users/mmadu/Desktop/Patches/origin/New\ Dsl\ files to navigate to the folder and typing ls shows all the files in the folder in .dsl before typing the "grep -l Method.*_OFF *.dsl"

Better to move the origin folder to your Desktop and also disassemble the files there only. This is what i've mentioned in the guide to make it easy. Once the disassembly gets completed, find the method using grep command as instructed in the guide.

The card looks disabled as the method has been added but i always recommend the approach in the guide.
The method is already there. Just apply the DSDT patch and it should do the job and if you plan to go for the full set of ACPI, the same needs to be done in the SSDT.
