Tried Opencore, touchpad still didn't work. Have tried all the voodoo kexts (voodooI2CELAN, ps2controller, etc..)

Hi everyone! I ve managed to ALMOST fix my trackpad using the second patch TPD0-(2), but it is quite strange. When try to move the cursor it is very laggy, but if I hold an finger on a side of the trackpad and slide using another finger on the other side of the trackpad the cursor moves perfectly fine. Scrolling with two fingers kinda works too but it can randomly zoom out. Installed KEXTs : voodooi2c, voodooi2chid, voodoops2(without trackpad and mouse), AsusSMC (and of course :VirtualSMC, ACPIbatterymanager, Lilu, whatevergreen and itlwm). I ll attach the EFI folder. I think the GPIO is buggy but I don't understand its behaviour.

Thanks a lot for this! I'll soon give it a try

UPDATE:
I've used your EFI to boot and I'm happy to say that the trackpad worked for the first time. However, that only lasted for 2 seconds before I was unable to move the cursor again. But its still progress :)

I am wondering why it has such a behaviour. The patch is exactly how voodooi2c guide said. I made another patch , but this one implementing OSI method to control the OS . However this brings no change. I ll investigate.

PS: Does your hdmi work?

I dont know whats behind that either. Tbh I dont have any clue about the patches stuff.
Also, the hdmi didn't work, just got a black screen when connected to an external monitor

This was weird for me, and I remember that it was very non-standard - could you try only having the conoctate SBFI in the _CRS? also try only having conoctate SBFB instead, or conoctate SBFG.
It's possible that only Polling works, in which case one of the above should work.

Either way you may want to try adding FMCN and SSCN methods to the I2C scope, if missing.
