Touchpad doesn't work at all on my Asus TransformerBook Flip TP500LN.
Strangely, I saw it working on 3.11, at least it managed to move the pointer, but on 3.13, 3.15, 3.16, and 3.17, moving the cursor with the touchpad fails, and dmesg is filled with "Touchpad at isa00600/serio4/input0 lost sync at byte 6" messages.

Feel free to ask for any information I missed and might be helpful in finding the problem.

Same here. Model Asus TP500LN. Windows gives ID hardware ETD0108. I have tried ubuntu mainline kernels 3.16, 3.17, 3.19. I can use the mouse with proto=imps but only as a point and left-click. Lost sync at byte 6 also appears.

- possible duplicate https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48161
- tried removing hid modules (saw somewhere on the net touchscreen and touchpad might interfere on other models): no difference
- tried patch for v7 as described in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1166442/
A workaround has already been found for this:
echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio4/reg_07
The kernel drivers writes this 1 to reg_07 during initialisation, but magically it changes back to 0.
This workaround seems to work until a suspend2ram/disk.
