What are the chance of a Nikon to 4/3 version that transfers the electrical contact like MetaBones have done for Canon?

Don't hold your breath, they haven't done it for Canon yet.

We're STILL waiting for the EF mount-MFT speed booster. The only way you get EF to MFT on focal reducer is to buy other company's adapters.

Your best bet is to practice manual focus techniques. It takes some time, but is very effective when you get used to it.

I am better at holding my breath than manual focusing.

If I have not learned how in 60 years, I probably never will.

Besides, I like AutoFocus. All my Nikkors are AF-S and all my lumix are AF.

It is also why I sent back my SpeedBooster, but

I would like to use some wider and faster lens on my GH4.

You may have to buy a Nikon body then all will be fine.  Even if you had a working Speed Booster you would soon get sick of the auto focus speed and switch to the faster and more reliably achieved manual focus anyway.
