Does anyone experience random flickering or brightness changes? Also has there been any updates to improve the Big Sur builds?

Amazing!
If you dont mind telling us, how was the update experience? did you have to change anything? everything works?
I installed it from USB to HP8300SFF which was using Catalina with OpenCore 0.7.1 according to the following guide.

It took a long time from the display of "copying to disk 100%" to "Install media now ..".
I'm using FackeSMC, but it's installed and running without any problems.

Install/update Enjoy the game.
