only essential kexts belong in clover

and then all kexts in /Library/Extensions

you will have some kexts in both places, that is fine as in config.plist InjectKexts is set to Detect

I used Kextbeast to install all the kexts currently in my clover folder to the /Library/Extensions folder. Which ones should I delete from the Clover folder?

none, they are all essential :)

although you seem to have 3 network kexts, you may want to delete 2 of those as they are not needed

Done, thanks. Any idea what could be causing the backlight issue?

I already attached the files to post #1636.

Any change requires new PR files.

I'll generate new ones now that I've installed the kexts to the Extensions folder.

Edit: Attached the files

Thanks...

Your ioreg shows backlight control should be working (from SysPrefs->Displays).
What is the issue?

Note: You forgot to disable Nvidia. See guide:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-disabling-discrete-graphics-in-dual-gpu-laptops.163772/

Note: You also forgot to remove ForceKextsToLoad. Read post #2 of the guide:

You probably need to patch ProductID in EDID.
You will need to do it with config.plist/Devices/Properties/PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x02,0)/AAPL00,override-no-connect

Note: DO NOT use Clover Configurator to edit your config.plist.

Do you mean like this?
