    VoodooI2C Help and Support

    @danilovitch Have you checked if your touch screen is a I2C device? Does it show up as a I2C HID device in windows device manager? Both VoodooPS2Controller and VoodooI2C include VoodooInput and they clash. If you use Propertree to edit your config.plist it will warn you and offer to disable in...

    VoodooI2C Help and Support

    The GPIO controller to attach to your GPI0 is in VoodooI2C.kext. So, without it you are not going to get anything attaching. You need to solve why it is not booting with Voodoo kexts. Do a verbose boot and see where it hangs or if you get any messages. Do the same without the kexts and see where...

    [Guide] ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED UX582 OpenCore

    MacOS 12.1. After that initial message, not getting it anymore and no instability. Did a ‘sudo purge’ as mentioned in one of the threads. Using the WD SSD it came with. This is compatible with MacOS. Won’t worry about it unless it happens again. I disabled the Intel card bluetooth in USB...

    [Guide] ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED UX582 OpenCore

    Updated to Monterey in-place with no problem (except no bluetooth built-in or dongle). But running into this message (but no instability so far) that appears to be unfixed in Apple hardware with much more disastrous results. https://developer.apple.com/forums/thread/684276

    [Guide] ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED UX582 OpenCore

    CPUFriendFriend does the same thing more conveniently and I tried experimenting with that. Right now I am on entirely power saving parameters for all and the CPU monitor is not showing any difference. I will try without CPUFriend entirely. May be CPUFriend is not working for this CPU at all. If...

    For comparison, here is the laptop power usage at idle under Windows The idle package power usage is around 1W, Dram Power around 0.65. Hackintosh at idle is about 3-4 times higher which explains the battery drain. The Dram Power usage is also higher at 1+W at idle. Granted it depends on how...

    [Guide] ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED UX582 OpenCore

    Here is some interesting insights from using the Intel Power Gadget for Mac (free download from Intel) that monitors power and frequency usage. This could be useful for configuring CPU friend. 1. Idle state after bootup 2. Graphics test with loading iGPU to max 3. CPU test with all cores at...

    I have the smartpad turned off as display by disabling the connector, so no power being used there. So, the power usage is unrelated to backlight in that display. OLED screen has no backlight. Power used is simply whatever is the composite value that reaches each element. Not some brightness...

    I have also been looking at the insane battery usage that appears to be common with these Zenbook laptops with discrete GPU chips that aren’t used while on MacOS. I am coming to the conclusion that it has a lot to do with the inefficient use of integrated graphics on the chip thermally but also...

    What is the status of Monterey compatibility relative to Big Sur for this machine? Any diffs positive or negative? I have kept my UX535 in Big Sur because of bluetooth issues with a dongle on Monterey. Don’t know if this is still the case.

    This has to do with the way Voodoo code is architected which predates multiple touch display devices. Touch drivers can work in two different modes - Touch screen mode: The cursor position is absolute. In other words, the cursor moves to where the finger touches and the movement is one-one...

    [Guide] ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED UX582 OpenCore

    There has been sporadic reports in the Linux world of trackpads stopping working if a 5 finger or a palm touch happens on the trackpad (that might trigger a multi-finger report). Voodoo code is derived from Linux drivers. Just pointing a possibility. Haven’t had any such problems with my Zenbook...

    VoodooI2C Help and Support

    Interesting. You could try changing those values especially the first one as a hidden setting using offsets. Pin 74 is locked full. IF (and a big IF) the problem is with Voodoo not being able to configure the pin correctly to get interrupts because it is set wrongly by the BIOS, then unlocking...

    VoodooI2C Help and Support

    The problem is in the BIOS firmware. I have verified with Linux that the APIC interrupt 0x5F is firing for the trackpad. In Linux you can see this interrupt tied to pin 74. Have run Linux with noapic to force GPIO but no GPIO interrupts come in on the pin because the firmware seems to be...

    Use this kext and add to boot argument as explained there https://github.com/acidanthera/DebugEnhancer After boot, sudo dmesg | grep Voodoo to see if you get the built in messages for doing polling
