Hello, my computer configuration is the same as yours. My ALC294 sound card has been unable to drive. Have you solved it?
Partially solved. When no headphones connected my internal mic doesn't work, and I see 2 * Line In in my audio devices. Headphones working ok. Use boot arguments -cdfon lilucpu=9 alcid=12 in your config.plist in Clover and AppleALC.kext

Why did you re-patch ETPD._STA? You should keep it as-is...

Not working anyway, nor with original, nor with patched.
Maybe it'a only FTE1200 on ASUS issue? As I see there is no problems with ELAN..
Can you give me same place of DSDT from another ASUS with FTE1200?
Does there is any tool can give additional debug info?

I used your boot file and restarted the MAC progress bar as soon as it came out

Don't understand you. Your progress bar freezes for a long time, and system don't boot?
Maybe your kexts, installed to /L/E not same as my.

Workaround: boot from flash drive with WinPE and set of repair tools. I use Sergey Strelec WinPE, these lot of them - Hiren's Boot, etc.
Then, after WinPE loads, replace config files in EFI partition from backup. My backup sets placed in the WinPE flash drive, and I always can rollback to previous working config, or any config I wish. Also I always backup my EFI folder before make any changes.

Not working is too general... Please attach an archive with the correct setup as suggested. Your troubleshooting files will look different, and it's necessary for diagnosis.
It's usually a matter of the laptop model, not the trackpad.
gen_debug.sh gives all the necessary information :)

Here it is. System boot time - 3 min, touchpad not working.
ETPD._STA is unpatched, as you say.

I forgot to say. I have ASUS BT USB dongle, and Apple Magic Mouse 1 connected to.
When I try to use GPIO mode, mouse sometimes lost a connection to system. Every 5-10 minutes. Then, after few seconds of clicking connection restoring.
When polling mode, then mouse working absolutely correctly.
The same with Microsoft BT Mouse was. I thought the problem was in mouse :)
