Sorry, but the instructions 1,2,3,4 below are ambiguous. Could you clarify please? Thanks.
I see no ambiguity, which part are you struggling with ?

This is quite an old thread and most people now would just use ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi instead of updatiing apfs.efi.

Just hoping for a bit of advice on this, if I install Mojave and an update is released, do I replace the file before or after I run the update?

No need to do either, use ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi instead, it is now the recommended way.

3. Navigate to /usr/standalone/i386/
4. Copy apfs.efi to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/
So i navigate to the folder /usr/standalone/i386.

Then copy afps.efi to /volumes/etc.

Where did afps.efi come from?
Why did I navigate to /usr/standalone/etc?

I am sucessfully using Mojave 14.1 but trying to get sound working and keep following threads that i don't properly understand.

It comes from the OS installer.

Why did I navigate to /usr/standalone/etc?
Because that is where apfs.efi is placed by the installer but it must be copied to the EFI partition for Clover's use.

As stated previously, constantly updating apfs.efi has been rendered redundant by use of ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi.

apfs.efi will have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on audio problems.

newer versions of clover already has ApfsDriverLoader-64 so you don't need to get apfs.efi

Thanks, Pilgrim.

I'm now looking at Lilu threads.

To be clear - if we're using ApfsDriverLoader-64, then we don't need any version of apfs.efi at all in the Clover>drivers64 folder?
