I have tried iichid but i haven't tried building it anyway i will try this method again i hope it would work!

Kindly post your results. There are a few ASUS laptop users (me included) that can't run FreeBSD on those devices because of no trackpad. This project seems to be working toward a solution.

I made a new installation using freebsd 13 touchpad works with compiled iichid modules
The problem is i put in /boot/loader.conf a parameter hw.syscons.disable=1 to disable framebuffer because i had problems with xorg
then xorg started sometimes then never started again also i had some strange messages from sendmail and about my hostname on booting.
Touchpad worked sound worked but after putting this parameters it only started two times and xorg never started again it sticks showing some lines about efi
The mistake was that i was using freebsd 13 maybe it has some problems .... i will test with freebsd 12 now that i see that touchpad ,sound,wifi etc somehow works

I have an asus vivabook 14" ryzen3 vega3 touchpad works but only after you install iichid and add three lines in loader.conf. I would suggest build the iichid driver from git it is compiled in half minute.
What model you have ?

I'm glad it's starting to work. I have a Zenbook. I run FreeBSD on my Lenovos for now since everything works.

Yes i believe i can make it work my next installation attempt will be better. Touchpad works, sound works wifi works also it booted to the graphical environment but i need to install stable and try some settings. The only problem is efi and amdgpu its not good together.
