Please remember that Big Sur install and boot from PREBOOT partition, this is not a Clover issue but an Apple enforcement boot policy, OpenCore hide this, but is the same boot method

Try this config
Thanks, mate! Going to try booting off a USB with this now in Catalina. Here's the results using your confirm. I don't think I made any changes to my config from yours. Maybe just UUID stuff for iMessage?

It is possible to have a wrong recall about that tool to check clover's config, i think i used an OC config and ported then to clover, i can't remember :)

I upgraded the OC part inside Clover to try to solve the Preboot issue, but along the struggle i discovered that there is no issue at all :))) it is the way the Apple boot starting with Big Sur, so during the process i used that tool to check the config, but through a oc config probably, and just checking few parts, no the whole config

Be aware, if you upgrade from Catalina there are some chances to destroy your partitions so do a proper backup first if you have something valuable.....

Having to zero my USB because it had a NTSC EFI partition from a while ago. So, should I install the Big Sur update on the hackintosh from the appstore? then on reboot I pick the PREBOOT partition from clover?

If i were you i will start with gibMacOs download an oficial BigSur public image, create the USB stick then install and wipe all if there is nothing interesting :)
Yes, after first restart there should be an option in Clover to boot bigsur install from preboot, this is the one to chose, then, at the end boot from preboot, you can hide the preboot by faking a new custom entry if you want at the end.... :)

I tried a few times to boot Catalina with your config but it freezes as soon as it gets to the login page or just before at the apple loading screen. What would I need to change on my config to make it Big Sur compatible? Thanks for all the help, as always! :)

When you updated your Clover you updated too the OpenRuntime.efi from drivers64UEFI and removed old OcQuirks.efi and OcQuirks.plist files, right? Also, both BOOT/BOOTX64.efi and CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi files should be replaced, not only CLOVERX64.efi.
The OpenRuntime.efi it is provided in Clover zip file
