I found a driver over at

http://www.osx86.net...2_trackpad.html

it is the only one that let me boot into 10.8 without kernel panic and have my Elan trackpad function as a mouse.

 

This thread is for building a new multitouch driver. I believe, in this thread, we all have the trackpad thinking its a mouse, but thanks all the same. If you happen to come across the Apple Trackpad driver source code, that would be a finding. :)

I installed these kexts(AS 5750) up here but it only worked once when restarted after accessing the partition windows stopped responding commands or went crazy, locking too.

It's only doing some work on the OSX 10.8 and it's not supposed to work yet.

How I test

0. build my code

1. I am using the AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext and ApplePS2Controller.kext(in /S/L/E) from Multi.Beast. 5.0.2, also included in attachement

2. remove the ApplePS2Mouse.kext and ApplePS2Trackpad.kext from /S/L/E/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/Plugins

3. copy the VoodooPS2ElanTrackpad.kext(for Xcode 4.4, it should be sth like ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/VoodooPS2-abcdefg....../Build/Products/Debug/VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns) into above position, /S/L/E/ApplePS2Controller.kext/Contents/Plugins

4. run Kext Utility to fix the permission and update the kernel cache.

5. reboot the machine

try this:

   sudo kextunload /S/L/E/*/good_VoodooPS2ElanTrackpad.kext
  build a kext
+-> sudo chown -R 0:0 VoodooPS2ElanTrackpad.kext
|   sudo chmod -R 755 VoodooPS2ElanTrackpad.kext
|   sudo kextload VoodooPS2ElanTrackpad.kext
|   tail -f /var/log/system.log
|   test
|   sudo kextunload VoodooPS2ElanTrackpad.kext
|   sudo chmod -R 777 VoodooPS2ElanTrackpad.kext
+-< build a new kext

Latest

There is another work on the same topic in tonymacx86

I will have a try tonight or later.

Note: they released kexts for Lion and Mountain Lion, but without source code yet.

 

Tested. It works pretty good. Just folllow simple instructions.

It's not precise/confortable/configurable like winDOS drivers but it's good enought.
