There you go.
Looks like we have all the same, except ofc for the image 4/5 where I can see your trackpad active and mine is not. From your pic number 4, you can see the difference. Under I2C0@15 - VoodooI2CPCIController - TPAD --> You have the VoodooI2CHIDDEVICE , and I don't. Now my idea is that my pc/OSX doesn't recognize / see the satellite Voodooi2chid. (I can see that also from the app Geni2c, look at the screenshots. First screen from GenI2C is from a pc with working trackpad, second screen from GenI2C is from my pc without working trackpad and you can see he doesn't find the satellite). So I guess the problem is to make it work this satellite file.

That's normal behavior on any hackintosh when a trackpad is not found. My desktop system does the same thing.
Did you try my EFI? Just curious if it didn't work for you also.
Yep, installed Mojave clean and tried your efi.. doesn't work

Yep, see.. it shows you the satellite file. So I need to find out why my pc doesn't see the satellite VoodooI2CHID, which is the kext that makes the trackpad work. It's all about that. That's the list of my not apple kexts from kextstat.

You're right.


just remembered that we created a new thread seeking for help on trackpad. We should be having this discussion under that thread.

@Jiveman Here are mine.
Here's a diff.. in terminal you can run: `cat sys_diff.txt` etc.. I generated it by just sorting the output of both our files and running `icdiff` on them. We've got lots of different kexts in /s/l/e I'm guessing you're not on Mojave? We'll another big difference may be this was a hard drive from my old MBP that conked out that had been upgraded throughout the years, so I probably have some old kexts that aren't even being used anymore. This wasn't a clean install. That said I do have another drive with a clean Catalina install. I had originally switched to mojave since someone posted success with their trackpad on Mojave but not Catalina.. Will probably switch back to 10.15 soon.

hi, i have solved my battery and trackpad problem.
what did was install the kext using kext wizard which somehow doesn't work properly but then it works i install the kext using hackintool :D.
but still having one problem tho, i always have this when i turn my laptop on or suddenly my pc restarted and show this kernel panic.
