Hi,
I have set up a SF515-77 which is the next model of SF514 using a different guide.
I got almost everything working except black screen after wake up (I see backlight but no image, mac is working perfectly on external hdmi after sleep).
I tried a lot of things, including FixEdid to create a customized Edid in Overrides with different screen type (A5,B5) etc ..
I tried to inject EDID and/or Intel with clover too at boot.
I tried different values for darkwake too.
anyway i still got the grey/blackscreen.
All kext are in /L/E including whatevergreen and lilu
Sleep/wake up is ok with external screen. Everything else is working.

Here is my clover folder and my system log after sleep/wake

Any idea to help me ??
In devices\properties
PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0),
You may try
AAPL,ig-platform-id=0400A53E
device-id=A53E0000

@victrvictr I have the Swift 3 SF314-54G with elan504, may I ask how you got your touchpad working? Best thing I could do is for it to simulate a mouse. I can drag and click, but no two or three touch gestures of any kind. Thanks
The only option for setting up full touchpad support is to use the manual https://voodooi2c.github.io/ for the patch of your native DSDT.

I did it of course. I got it working on several other laptop but in this case there is something either complex or something not supported in voodooi2c

@serge75, if DSDT patch is made correctly, you can further experiment to selecting the right kexts set. For example, in my case, the following kexts set work:

I already tried what I understood, so I am a bit lost.
My problem is really related to sleep, most posts are about black screen during setup or in macos, my config works perfectly until it wakes from sleep, and only for internal display

I really need help !!!!!
You may try to add hotpatches: SSDT-PNLFCFL.aml to Clover ACPI\patched folder from hotpatch folder of RehabMan OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config-master. Good lock!

I tried both SSDT-PNLF and SSDT-PNLFCL without luck.
Tried to Clover PNLF inject and DSDT patch for PNLF but no luck.

What is really weird is that noone seems to have encounter that problem before.
I have set up 6 laptops kaby lake R and whiskey lake 9th gen and never encountered that problem before !
My laptop is quite recent so I guess it is realted to change in some newer hardware

I really need help ...
