Seems there is no connection error.

Usually it should throw invalidation error if it is not signing in properly.

Surprised it just cleans up validation info without any error.

So you think with the official version of Lion we wont have this problem? I was trying to get my app store and face tie to connect in cause I needed to file this same solution for the official version. I hope it all works...

Is thursday the release day of Lion?

ok, knowing what I don't know about how FaceTime authenticates. I tried just going to this web page in a browser "https://registration...oa/wa/register" it was listed earlier in the posts as the page that FT tries to authenticate against. what I received was a notice saying that my machines "client certificate" was invalid making me think that maybe there is a key missing from the FaceSMC or something else in Hackintoshes that is not allowing for us to generate a valid client Cert for FaceTime.

just my observations.

Is that a clean installation of Lion over clean SL?

Or upgrade of an existing SL to Lion? Well it seems MBP users have this issue on an upgrade.

You can move "com.apple.FaceTime.plist" and "com.apple.FaceTime.plist.lockfile" from "~/Library/Preferences/" to desktop [For safer method] and reboot the system and restart FaceTime and see if that helps? Coz when you restart FT fresh these Preferences files are created automatically.

Hope this fixes the issue. I would wait for the final release which is hours ahead of official launch and hope that fixes all these issues. As GM for developers and I don't think end-users should expect everything to work.

Cross your fingers for the final release and then you can give it a try. Cheers. :)

EDIT: Other Mac users have problem with this issue too. http://tinyurl.com/6bb4e5m

I'm actually thinking FaceTime may check your App Store purchases, and If it doesn't see Lion as a purchase, it disallows FaceTime?

I hope not, but it would make sense. :( But based on other reading, it looks for now to just be switched off until Lion is released.

I tried deleting the Facetime app (you have to do it from Terminal because it's a protected app). Then I reinstalled the Essentials.pkg which includes Facetime. Still no luck.

just for the record, if I boot up in 10.6.8 Facetime works, in Lion DP4 no facetime, it does work on my MB and MBP with Lion GM, like others have said, waiting on release version to address these issues.

enjoy the weekend

Nope. I installed the Retail Lion today and FaceTime still doesn't log in. It says...

The server encountered an error processing registration. Please try again later.

App Store currently works and logs in fine.

I previously purchased FaceTime and it worked on 10.6.8.

Plenty of people with genuine Macs are being frustrated with the same situation over at the Apple forum.

Same problem with facetime on my Sandy bridge hack with retail Lion. :rolleyes:
I found that few people say that Facetime works for them. Is that true?

I did an update keeping my old settings, maybe that created the problem?

I sort out the problem... The culprit is the hosts file which is inside /private/etc.

You need to remove all the unwanted blocking. Probably most of the guys block this address gs.apple.com. If you see a "#" before the apple ip address uncomment it and the best way is to just have the default value.


##
# Host Database
#
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.
##
127.0.0.1	localhost
255.255.255.255	broadcasthost
::1			 localhost 
fe80::1%lo0	localhost

Just make sure you have this and that should fix the signing problem.

Hope this helps folks who run into this problem. FT trying to connect to the server but you must be blocking in the hosts file.

rest is next.
All the best guys.

I never had an active entry in hosts for gs.apple.com, just some local entries for other hosts. Still tried clearing it all out and flushing cache (dscacheutil). Still doesn't work here. :D

installing chameleon build 755 or 760 worked for me.

Well, what do you know... Your solution works! But for me, with a difference, build 760 didn't work. However, in my case, FaceTime Works with Chameleon RC5 build 755. Which begs the question: what's the difference between these two builds? Do newer builds work or not? In any case, thank you to stellarola for clearing up this one, I had tried all the solutions out there and nothing had worked.
