Updated my iMac1 system to Big Sur install 11.2 (Catalina is on another Samsung NVMe drive).

Was surprised the download was only 3.25 GB and not the full 12GB+ that the last update required. Maybe Apple listened to some of the concerns raised, then again!

Easy update, couple of reboots and all is well.

Can you please also post the direct download links to the update installers, combo and incremental?

Apple don't do those anymore with Big Sur

I have a hunch that those of us that download the third RC last Thursday already has this released version because the Build Number is exactly the same so I doubt we will get the download notification but then again I could be wrong.

Updated smoothly. Clover 5129, plus all current kexts. Did not have to play with intel graphics, as have in the past. Booted automatically into installer pre-booter, and hid extra partitions correctly. Three reboots over about 20 minutes, and good to go. Thanks!

Update worked fine using System Preferences > Software Update.

I did not detect an installation volume during boot up; no boot intervention was required.

I updated from macOS 11.1 to 11.2. All my kexts were up to date (see pic), and I'm on OpenCore 0.6.5.

There was a lengthy delay from the boot finish to desktop while the install completed. A strange dialogue box appeared asking for the location of FinderSyncAPIExtension. I just hit cancel, and the system came up.

The user login screen is strange. The login options are offset to the left for some reason (see pic).
