Hey @gulios, I have the exact same UX430UA model as you, and I'm having a nightmare trying to get the trackpad to work, or even just be detected by MacOS.

I install the correct kexts (same 2 as you), in the exact same place as you, patch the DSDT as instructed in the VoodooI2C guide, do the pinning as required, but the trackpack just isn't detected. Is there something special you did to get it to work?

Hi, i don't use new VoodooI2C kext because it didn't work for me(gestures were nightmare) so i stuck(it works) with first version

Thank you for sharing. GULIOS
Honestly could you please tell me how to install VoodooI2C exactly? some information really confuses me. Just tell me a rough guide. Your spec is pretty similar to mine.
Thank you in advance
You have everything in link i gave.
Put SSDT-ELAN in "patched" and Voodoo kext in EFI/CLOVER/kext (all files in first post).

Hi,
After almost 3 months of searching, reading, fixing etc my Asus ZenBook works great :headbang:

Generally i can say that it's perfect model for hackintosh laptop nowdays ;)

Benchmarks:

Compute: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/compute/981634

So far so good ;) laptop works in 100%(without fingerprint sensor)

working:
- wifi 2,4/5Ghz
- BlueTooth 4.0
- eth USB 10/100/1000 LAN
- USB2/3/C works fine - generate custom SSDT for USBInjectAll.kext
- AirDrop
- GPU/CPU full acceleration(used ssdtPRGen.sh for PM) - "Intel HD Graphics KBL CRB 1536 MB" - native support
- all sensors, cpu, gpu, fans without any problems(average temperature 35-39' in normal usage)
- m.2 Sandisk, trim - native support
- USB-C/3/2
- battery, cycle count etc, battery life ~7h with regular use and ~2,5h with external display 4K video
- sleep/wake(on charger and battery)
- brightness, slider, auto change level(battery/charger) 16 levels
- keyboard backlight 3 levels AsusNBFnKeys.kext + DSDT patches from EMlyDinEsh
- HDMI external display(4K) on micro hdmi(NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext)
- HDMI audio
- audio(speakers, microphone) - AppleALC.kext Lilu.kext inject id = 3 ALC295
- Headphones (with jack sense) - had to change Audio MIDI Setup because of crackling sound(TODO)
- FN keys via AsusNBFnKeys.kext (brightness, audio)
- imessage, facetime, hand-off
- camera USB2.0 HD UVC WebCam
- card reader(in system pref "This computer doesn't contain any Apple Internal Memory Card Readers." but in USB "Flash Card Reader/Writer") so it works as regular pendrive
- touchpad horizontal/vertical scrolling, 3 fingers(mission control etc) ELAN 1200
- fingerprint sensor ELAN:Fingerprint - device is recognised in Sytem Info but now port HS09 is disabled (in new BIOS disabled option)

TODO:
- fix headphones crackling sound
- guide?
