Does anyone know? WHICH directory should I be using for my KEXTs? EFI\EFI\CLOVER\OTHER or \LIBRARY\EXTENSIONS?

HOW do I see which Lilu I have loaded? I have different versions in EFI\EFI\CLOVER\OTHER and \LIBRARY\EXTENSIONS... :(
your choice really

you can keep them all in clover/kexts/other

or install them all to /L/E (and keep essential kexts in clover/kexts/other) and set InjectKexts -> Detect in config.plist

some more info here:

I did a clean install without much issues. I am using DW 1550 wifi/bluetooth module. One kext had to be disabled to get it working under Bir Sur - AirPortBrcm4360_Injector.kext. SMBIOS was changed from iMac 14,1 to iMac14,4 for Big Sur.

I'm having resolution issues with LG 27UL850 4K monitor that I just bought. It outputs only 2560x1440 from mini-DP and HDMI. Not sure how to fix that...
Any help is appreciated...
Congrats on getting it up and running! Thanks for sharing the tips also. I'm running on a 4K monitor over HDMI also. I have some IntelGFX and ig-platform-id values that I can try, but I haven't gotten mine updated to Big Sur yet.

Would you mind sharing your EFI folder? After I update to Big Sur, I can test out the values and if they work, I'd be happy to share them

Thanks. I'll try it out and see if I can get it working on a 4K display, and let you know

I'm trying out some settings and thought to share what someone else posted on another site that worked for them. Here's a paste from their post. My original link to the post got removed by the mods

My complete DeviceProperties section for reference.
Note that I'm running a Dell Optiplex 7020 small form factor with a desktop i5 4590 processor, your settings may be different:
Key Type Value
AAPL,ig-platform-id Data 0300220D
device-id Data 12040000
disable-external-gpu Data 01000000
disable-hdmi-patches Data 01000000
enable-hdmi20 Data 01000000
framebuffer-fbmem Data 00000003
framebuffer-patch-enable Data 01000000
framebuffer-stolenmem Data 00000004
framebuffer-unifiedmem Data 00000080

If you're having a QHD/4K or UHD Laptop, you need to set the DVMT to 64 MB or even more such as 96 or 128MB. Maybe you can try 96 or 128MB?
