Recognition Trackpad [ASUS Wireless Input Receiver]


Recommended Posts

Hi to all.
I try without success to configure ASUS Wireless Input Receiver 

  • Product id: 0x1823
  • Vendor id: 0x0b05

Someone can help me to create a Kexts to recognize this touchpad as Trackpad with gesture?
I am at your complete disposal to collaborate and test kexts.

Thanks in advance.

You've gone all that way but did not suss out how to add your own entry? Very easy and here's a hint: to find the solution, find the key... Then keep everything in the family!


No guarantee that having the correct entry in that plist will bring the device to life of course.


PS: no double posts please.

Thanks for your reply but I have just edited YekkiBluetoothInjector.kext but does not change nothing. 

I don't know how I can get the PID number of my device.

I don't know if my PID 0x1823 corresponds to 6091.

I hope I explained.

No, PID 0x1823 does not correspond to 6091.


You need to identify the exact nature/type of those different numbers to find the relation between them. It's all in the key... Once you've sussed these out, read the plist entries with all due attention so that you don't miss anything. You do at the moment.


Open the plist with TextEditor rather than PlistEditPro, things should get clearer... Ask yourself those 2 questions: what does "VID" mean? what does "PID" mean? You may not realise it, but you actually already have all the answers... It's just hard to see the forest with all those trees!

<key>PID 6091 0x17CB VID 2821 0xB05</key>

Thank you so much for the lesson that is making me!

I think I have to decode my PID in the exact number to be entered. Is that right?
I have also used USB Probe, but do not understand how to see the forest between all the trees.
I ask a further indication ....

In computing terminology, numbers starting with prefix "0x" are hexadecimal numbers, i.e. base 16. In hexadecimal, numbers range is 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F. By analogy, in decimal, i.e. base10, numbers range is 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9.


PID = Product id = idProduct = 0x1823 (in hexadecimal) = 6179 (in decimal)

VID = Vendor id = idVendor = 0x0B05 (in hexadecimal)  = 2821 (in decimal)


Please note that the "key" info/line of a plist is  more like a chapter title and that the real applicable data is the one stated below that line. With all this info, you should now easily derive what you need to do to your plist, again without any guarantee that it'll work of course... 


  • Product id is also often refered to as Device id or Dev id
  • 6091 (dec) = 0x17CB (hex)

Thanks for your explanation!

I have change the value into YekkiBluetoothInjector.kext but does not recognize my touchpad.

Sequently I have change the vendorid and productid in the attached files and I see these in the bootlog.

VoodooPS2SynapticsTouchPad Version 1.8.8 loaded...

ApplePS2Controller: Timed out on keyboard input stream.

VoodooPS2Trackpad: Identify TouchPad command failed


How can I procede?


thanks in advance
