Pre Update Notes
:
- This update may break some of your Big Sur functions. Make sure you backup first. :thumbup:

- Make sure you use the latest versions of the Lilu.kext, AppleALC.kext and WhateverGreen.kext.

Here's the step by step way to update:
:ch:Backup your current installation using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;

:ch: Update to the latest Clover or OpenCore 0.6.5/0.6.6.
See the tonymacx86 Clover Builds (in Download menu) to update Clover. To update your OpenCore, see this guide. To convert from Clover to Open Core, see this guide.

:ch: (Oldie, but Goodie.) In February 2020, Apple "clamped down" on non Apple approved kexts. So, update Lilu, WhatEverGreen and AppleALC, placing them in your /EFI/.../Clover/kexts/other/. Remove these kexts from the /Library/Extensions/ folder. See tonymacx86's thread:
References:​

:ch: Download the Big Sur 11.2.2 Update from Apple's Mac App Store using System Preferences > Software Update, and run it - the updater will reboot upon completion.
Note: Update will reboot several times; each time Clover/OpenCore picks the correct boot partition. So, sit back and relax. The update takes 2 or 3 reboots and ~20-30 minutes to complete.​


:ch: Done! So far, another easy update! :thumbup:

Smooth update for my Haswell Refresh system on OC 0.6.6, three reboots, around 20-25 minutes and finished.

Update is only 2.17GB in size, when going from BS 11.2.1

Downoading this update took ages! After 3 restarts(first without progression bar, second with progression but without time left indication ) and 20 minutes waiting it worked. Using OC 6.5 and latest Lilu and Whatevergreen.
