Asus Zephyrus-M laptop help (ALC668 + Trackpad)


Hi everyone,
I have an ASUS Zephyrus-M GM501GS, full specs are here:

  • OS: Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.4

  • CPU i7 8750H Code Lake

  • Chipset: HM370

  • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 1070 8GB GDDR5

  • Wifi: Intel Wireless-AC 9560

  • Bluetooth: HCI 9.256 / LMP 9.256

  • Camera: USB2.0 HD UVC WebCam

  • Audio/Mic: Realtek HD Audio ALC668

  • Keyboard & Trackpad - ELAN/SA473I-12A4

I've installed High Sierra without issues and thought that the job was done, but then learned more about the joy of dealing with Kext files and DSDT patches.
So far I got:

  • Bluetooth, working natively
  • Keyboard, working natively
  • M2 Hard disk, working natively
  • USBs, working natively
  • Thunderbolt 3, working natively (I think)
  • Camera, working natively (but with a few glitches)
  • Graphics, Nvidia Web Driver working without issues
  • Battery Manager, working after using the DSDT Patch for Asus N55SL/Vivobook from RehabMan's repository
  • Fn Keys, working after AsusNBFnKeys.kext
  • Shutdown/Restart, working after DSDT Patch Shutdown Fix from RehabMan's repository ; although I can see that it sometime doesn't work as expected.
  • Brightness control, using the Brightness Slider app

I'm still struggling to get:

  • Audio/Mic (Realtek HD Audio ALC668), I've tried a few methods, but didn't have much luck.
  • Trackpad (ELAN/SA473I-12A4), I've tried to use VoodooI2C with the satellite kext VoodooI2CHID and VoodooI2CELan, but none of then worked, have also applied the GPIO and Windows 10 patches via DSDT. Also tried the VoodooPS2Controller with the Daemon as per instructions, but also without much luck.
  • Sleep, I can't make it go to sleep when closing the laptop


My config files are here: http://ge.tt/3ynUYwq2

Any help would be greatly appreciated
