Does anyone have a touch screen and trackpad running on Voodoo I 2 C on Surface Pro 3?

I've reverted it and now using polling mode i got the trackpad working i'm facing some small but annoying problems :
  1. Sometimes the mouse jump on the top right corner
  2. Selecting text or moving a window is tricky. When i click with the left button on a window top bar to move it and i start moving it i cannot lift my finger from the trackpad even if i'm still pressing the left button. When i lift the finger the window stop moving.
What could i do ? Is this a know problem ?
Why are you using polling mode? You can use GPIO interrupts.
After any change, you should attach a new troubleshooting archive to debug your issues.
The next release of VoodooI2C might help with your first issue.
Didn't really understand the second issue you have. Check drag lock preferences in SysPrefs.

Yes, it works for Kaby Lake (Also Kaby Lake-R).
Coffee Lake is not supported yet.

Hello. Can someone do me a favor and compile the 2.0.3 source code in Xcode with Mojave SDK for macOS Mojave 10.14.x and attach the zipped kexts?


That would be awesome because 2.1.4 is performing much worse with my trackpad than 2.0.3, so I've been running 2.0.3 in High Sierra, but 2.0.3 makes Mojave kernel panic here during boot.

I am very new to Xcode and always get compile errors.

If there already is a 2.0.3 Mojave compile, I'd be thrilled if you sent me a link.

Thank you folks

You can find unofficial/unsupported kexts in the zip in my guide (link in my sig). I built them against the Mojave SDK and they contain the most recent commits as of 1/15 (2.1.4 + latest). Please do not ask anyone for help with them if you do use them, as they are not supported.

Hi @fewt Wow, what an impressive and exemplary guide, compliments!

I downloaded ASUS-Q405UA-021219.zip, but the VoodooI2C.kext inside is v.2.1.4

Am I missing something?

It's 2.1.4 with all of the commits since release which improves the touchpad significantly.

Ok @fewt I'll install now, reboot and report back. Please note that my Vivobook is equipped with an ELAN 1300 and yours with an ELAN 1200.
