Hi,
I have some issues with Big Sur that I didn't have with Catalina.
The system is a Cube Mix Plus with a M3-7Y30 (Kaby Lake)
First of all the installation process was very slow, Catalina, in this system, takes 40 minutes to install. In contrast big sur needed 2 hours.
However I successfully installed big sur. It takes at least 5 minutes(for Catalina less than a minute) to boot and booting in verbose this is the result.

There is that line that says ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin is stalled and all the tx_flush etc that I don't know if are normal (in another laptop that has no problem these lines are not called in verbose).
I tried to inject only the kext strictly needed to boot, I removed the SSDT but the result is the same in the log and the booting process is still slow.

Morover, when big sur boots, I have other issues. The audio is not working. In particular only 1 over 3 times the mic is recognized and in the sound settings the internal speaker is shown, sadly the speaker, even in this case, doesn't work while the headphones work; 2 over 3 times instead big sur doesn't detect anything related to audio.
Last thing. I set that the internal drives have to show in the desktop. It actually work but I can see only the labels, the drive icon is not shown.
P.s. the AppleALC kext in this folder is a self compiled one that works just fine in Catalina, this is because I use a self-made profile pending in github to be approved. I tried also the official kext using the profile id 3. This profile works on my system but mic is broken, however also in this case I have the same problem as above (except the mic that doesn't work all the times obv).
From Catalina the only thing I changed is Sata-unsupported to CtlnaAHCIPort.

Thanks for your help, I attach the log and my EFI folder with Clover(I removed the Serial Number I use for the SMBIOS).

inject Intel should be disabled

or you may want to transition over to opencore

I don't remember now but I merged all the ssdt in one bigger ssdt. They should be there.

I tried disabling inject intel, but the thing doesn't change a lot. Now it seems that a bit faster but ACPI_SMC_PLATFORMPLUGIN stall still is a thing.

I'm starting now to transition, however I don't think this is bootloader dependant... I hope I'm wrong.

If anyone has this issues I solved.
First of all the problem was with voodooi2c and voodoops2.
Both have voodooinput as plugins and fail the first part of the booting process. For this reason I was using an older version of Voodoops2 that has not voodooinput as plug-in (version 2.0.4).
It seems that this version of PS2 has issues with Big Sur so I reverted to PS2 2.1.8 and removed, in the plugin folder of voodooi2c, voodooinput. This fixed all the problems except AppleALC.
The audio is not working but it seems the problem is the custom id I built (it works correctly on Catalina but not on Big Sur)
I close this issue and mark as solved.

your wonky ''tablet' still working? mine almost died. battery drain out a second even though it show 100% fully charge and 0% wear. the ssd brick too, become readonly hdd. the machine itself getting too hot to run any thing without cooling. So I remove all the plastic cover, point a big fan to it to cool it down, plug in a external 32inch display and keyboard and usb and sdcard. turn it to a desktop win 10 and antix and androidx86. this way I can save 500$ instead of throw it away LOL

Yes, it is. The battery is still good (3 hours at least with windows) and I made the thermal mod the moment it was delivered (never experienced too hot temperatures except in summer). I also replaced the ssd some week after the delivery.

I even used the tablet for my bachelor thesis (matlab and ansys fluent) when I had to move with the plane frequently

It's a good machine and macos is only one of the things this tablet can run.

I'm still very happy of this purchase after 3 years of use.

That tablet work normally for me less than 1 year. Then it turn to bare uncased headless desktop with dedicated fan. Without builtin network support, I see no practical point putting macOS on it. Last time I installed Catalina on it for experiment.

Uhm... Not encouraging ... I don't have a desktop computer. So, just in case, I could copy your idea if mine follows the same fate as yours.
For the network support. The Intel wifi card now can be used under macos with itlwm (it fakes the Intel card into an ethernet connection) or airportitlwm (the Intel card is recognized as a legit wifi card under macos).
This project still has some missing features (no enterprise networks etc and still no airdrop) but if you use it with a "normal" WPA/WPA2 network it should be good (also continuity should work, with the exception of airdrop, with airportitlwm)
If you read my thread under big sur you can see that half of the "not working" are due to the dock, not the tablet. The other two things are not important (I have a USB-C hub with a card reader and the camera can be replaced with an external one, that is also better than the built-in one...).
Also half of the bugs are due to the dock, as without the dock the tablet can go to sleep without any problem and the battery meter, with a USB-c charger, works great.

your CLOVER above did not pass through first stage, stuck at EC<kernelextension... bla..bla>
