Hello - All of a sudden my Jabra USB headset and webcam aren't being recognized. I'm on 11.4 and on Clover 5136. Any help appreciated. Thank you!
Did you (re)map your USB ports? Big Sur is very particular about USB port mapping.

BTW, I'm still on Catalina with this builid.

Can you point me in the right direction to see how to do this? Still loving this build after 5 years!

Thank you. I just restarted from scratch and put Catalina on. Everything is working great now, except when I completely shut down the computer and want to turn it back on later, it will not turn on, unless I unplug it and plug it back in. Then the power button will start working... Any ideas? Thank you!

Any good OpenCore conversion instructions floating about for this and the "ASUS ROG Z170 MAXIMUS VIII HERO" build?

I'm not at Gene's location so I can't give you the details. However, I've sucessfully used the Dortania OpenCore Installation Guide many times for my systems. It's very easy to follow. Just block out a couple of hours. Be sure to build the OC EFI folder on a USB thumb drive so as not to break your macOS installation.

Thanks @trs96 @Stork: I managed to use a previous build + the OpenCore diff tool to get the config.plist up to date. I also updated the kexts as per Dortania's lists.

The only kext that seems to not have any updates since maybe a year or more is `Legacy_USB3.kext` so I left that the same.

The backup as per your suggestion + Dortania was a good idea, but surprisingly unneeded which was cool.

I did try something out of the ordinary: OpenCore Configurator 2.46.1.0. I was shocked when it produced config.plist results that lined up differentially with the sample.plist! I know Clover Configurator was always a shunned tool, but this saved a lot of time in making sure things looked right, adding a root device, checking kexts (and loading a new one, thought RestrictEvents.kext could be useful aside from NVMeFix.kext.

Worked really well, thanks guys. I sure wish there could be some kind of a "base project" like what the OCLP guys are doing for real Macs. I realize there's too much variability, but some kind of a base package would sure be nice.
