If your current set up is working, there is no need to do anything. As they say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"

(Most of these discussions are for people who are contemplating updating to Big Sur or Calibre 5, or have already done so.)

I usually like to update especially as new computer but was waiting in case any issues. So maybe my question should have been, if I upgrade to Big Sur, what versions do calibre, K4Mac and Alf need to be for everything to work? Or am I better to wait more?

Ah. Well, some Big Sur users have been successful, others have not; so it might be better to wait, unless you're feeling lucky

I've installed Calibre 4.23 and Alf 6.81. That works on my Intel Big Sur. I have not been able to get books DeDRM'ed with Calibre 5.x and Alf 7, no matter what I try!

What version K4Mac worked with Calibre 4.23 and Alf 6.81? And which version(s) did you try with Calibre 5.x and Alf 7?

Also, are you using Method 2 (chmod -x) or Method 4 (KFX)?

Thank you!

I have K4Mac 1.30 now. This version works with Calibre 4.23 and Alf 6.81.

With Calibre 5.x and Alf 7, I tried K4Mac 1.26 and 1.30.

I am using Method 2 (chmod -x)!

Edit: For the sake of anyone new to this show, I'm using a MacBook Air (Intel version) with the Big Sur OS...

Thank you, downeaster59!

Looks like the v7 beta still needs work, but it's great to get multiple confirmations that K4Mac 1.30.0 + Alf 6.8.1 is working on Big Sur, at least on Intel Macs.
