Hi frozenzero123! In your EFI, which SSDT files are used for making the trackpad work? I tried removing some that I thought I wouldn't use but eventually things broke.
I also noticed that sometimes the audio output stops until you plug something into the 3.5mm audio jack. And DCPIManager reports that the audio device is unknown.
I am trying to make my own EFI.
I'm not sure, but I think icelake G1 uhd works if you guess the correct device id and patch like cofeelake or cometlake. I'm interested in your PC, so please elaborate on your hardware composition.
Please.

Mine's a YOGA S740 14inch with an i5 1035G1 + an NVIDIA MX250 (this version comes with the G1 intel iGPU instead of the G4 on some other countries' i5 models of this laptop).
Here's a dump of the hardware info from Linux: https://files.catbox.moe/8scynn.zip
MX250 does not work on macOS. I don't really have that hardware so I don't know, but I want to create an EFI file for you!

I really do appreciate your help :)
I also want to know if any of you got the built int microphone to work... as well as audio without the use of fakepciid.kext.

Thanks:wave:
I think the fix for audio devices that don't use fackpciid.kext can be solved by putting VoodooHDA.kext in EFI / OC / kexts and setting config.plist.
Why do you want to know how to fix problems with audio devices that don't use fakepciid.kext?

For some reason, on my 1035G1 laptop, audio output does not work without fakepciid.kext. Despite my devices tab being properly configured and "alcid=" being removed in favor of said devices tab entry.
