I get one file "noBootLoaderInstalled". What should be there so I can add it manually?
If you have Clover installed to the ESP on the same drive as macOS itself, the script will automatically capture that EFI/Clover.
If you have it installed on a separate drive, you must collect EFI/Clover manually.

Sorry for this, I've updated the zip and now I'm reading the guide.
At least PNLF is correct now.
Things should be better once you install kexts properly.

I've been trying to install Lilu kext and AppleBacklight kext in L/E but when I check cache I get this(Terminal Screenshot attached). Same does in S/L/E or if I use KextBeast. I have deactivated SIP and also tried with kext-dev-mode=1 set to true. Do you have any idea why I'm getting this?

It looks like you deleted other important kexts (AppleBacklightExpert.kext).
Run the macOS installer to restore Apple provided system kexts.
Installing kexts properly is covered in the laptop FAQ:

Hey man, I found that the brightness slider in my Siri doesn't work despite it is able to adjust the brightness by voice command. Slider in the system settings is perfectly fine. Is there a fix to this problem? Thanks.

No idea what you're referring to. And you didn't attach any PR files anyway.
