Installed Big Sur 11.1 using Clover r5126 without issues.
Installation has been longer then Catalina's one, but actually everything seems to be working right.
iCloud account, App Store, iMessage, audio, Bluetooth, wifi, USB.
It feels so strange!
[EDIT] Sometimes the system has strange behaviours. It stops responding, something like a freeze, but after one or two minutes I see a message "trackpad disconnected". usb keyboard and mouse doesn't work, so I hare to reset the system with power button. Probably some kind of bug, somewhere.
Tried to install Big Sur on a NUC8i5BEH. Well, it works! Only problem i had (and more people do) is
when using Chrome or Safari in full screen mode (Netflix or Youtube) the colors of the nightlight are
changing when using full screen or subtitles in Netflix. Already found a better solution for this than
disabling hardware features in Chrome. Besides that...I'm happy!
I moved away from SMBIOS macmini6,2 over Xmas and generated/validated a new iMac14,4 SMBIOS which worked fine on macOS Catalina and allowed Software Update to prompt me to upgrade to macOS Big Sur.
I held off the upgrade and backed up Catalina. I finally pulled the trigger over the weekend and had no issues nor interruptions with the macOS Big Sur upgrade process
P.S. I have read on the Dortania website that Apple have plans to drop support for HD 4000 Graphics in macOS Big Sur so an incremental macOS update may break support for my current hardware.
I downloaded Big Sur 11.1 and it says it's ready to update - but I can't see a macOS application in the Applications folder. I would like to back the installer up as per previous versions of macOS.
What's going on here?
