Have you tried just using AirportBrcmFixup? or is that apart of the broadcom-related kexts? The bluetooth doesn't work but atleast wifi does.I've noticed that if I remove all the Broadcom-related kexts in Catalina all the boot/switch off slowness disappears (along with wifi obviously).
So the root of all evils is that, haven't tried the patched kext version mentioned above yet.
If I remember correctly the base model 2018 has the same trackpad as the 2019 advanced. You could try following the trackpad related parts of stonevil's guide. I think it's just a matter of using the latest VoodooI2C and patching your DSDT as described in the guide.

I tried following stonevil's trackpad patch to apply to my 2018 Blade Base model, but the hot patch did not work. I am worried about going further with the Trackpad GPIO Pinning because I need my working copy of Mac for school right now and can't brick my laptop. Do you know of any alternatives/should I attempt the pinning (I am pretty inexperienced w patching, new to Hackintosh community)?
@sirtailios if you ever find a solution for the base model trackpad, please post!!
Try and follow the trackpad related parts of the guide and make sure you are using the lastest version of VoodooI2C. It should work since it's the same trackpad. You don't really need the GPIO stuff, the trackpad should work in polling mode without it. It's just more precise and efficient in interrupt mode (with GPIO pinning).
If you are worried about breaking stuff make a backup of your EFI partition. That way if things stop working you'll be able to go back to a working version by restoring the files.
I've tested BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext + BrcmPatchRAM2.kext + AirportBrcmFixup.kext.Have you tried just using AirportBrcmFixup? or is that apart of the broadcom-related kexts? The bluetooth doesn't work but atleast wifi does.
I've tried the BrcmPatchRam kexts that someone updated on insanely mac and after adding those I'm pretty sure that is why my battery also doesn't last on Catalina.
I tried to update my kexts and caught something that I think I missed when I originally installed the kexts! My VoodooI2C was not allowed. Image attached with a screenshot. Once I solve this I bet I can get my trackpad working. Any tips? I will do my best to figure it out.
Sorry to disappoint, but that looks fine
The invalid signature thing is because the kexts are from a third party developer and not officially signed. It says the same thing for me. The problem should be in your DSDT. It's mainly due to the SSCN method being in the wrong place, at least that was why the trackpad of the 2019 advanced model didn't work for a while (and it uses the same trackpad). Follow the guide and move these methods and it should work for you. You can also post your DSDT and I'll have a look.
If you have the exact same graphics and followed the guide for proper Frambuffer Patching and graphics set up, then the graphics information should look like the attached screenshot.Following up on one of those unresolved questions, but you said you had found a solution for it, so here's to hoping! So, I don't actually have a Razer Blade -- I have an Aero 15-X9. However, my laptop has the same weird "Connected Projector: Built-In Display" issue, where it thinks my built in display is 30.5 inches, and a projector. Curious as to if you ever got it fixed. I'm running into an independent issue with my trackpad which I believe is linked to the display issue.
