Hi,

I just installed 10.7.2 with Netkas's latest ATI drivers for 6970

And I just installed ##### 4.1.0 using ##### - I assume it includes the latest bootloader.

I even read this thread http://www.insanelym...howtopic=271662

Does anyone know on how I can get iCloud / Facetime working?

Thanks,

Flynn

Hi, YES for sure. Works if you have:
Correct Profile (smbios.plist) + Chameleon-2.1svn r1650 (& up) + Ethernet Built-in (en0 interface)

That's it. Good Luck.

Hi,

Thanks for the info..

Well this is what I have in my system....I downloaded Champlist and Chameleon-2.1svn r1686 from the osx86 site listed in google and inside there are two files, I installed the package file and in Champlist it shows up Chameleon-2.1svn r1686

When I click on Smbios - it is set to MacPro5,1 and has a serial number etc

and I am using a usb wifi, but there en0 in the network though it is color red (no connection)...is that okay?

I am still unable to get access to iCloud, Facetime and App Store

I really appreciate everyone's help on this.

thanks

In first instance App Store need Ethernet Built-in fix by DSDT or org.chameleon.Boot.plist flag. But before to do that, may I ask the obvious thing: if I understood, do you mean than your Ethernet card (LAN) has NOT any driver installed and running?

This is what I have in my System Info regarding Ethernet

Type: Ethernet Controller
Bus: PCI
Vendor ID: 0x10ec
Device ID: 0x8168
Subsystem Vendor ID: 0x1462
Subsystem ID: 0x7688
Revision ID: 0x0006
Link Width: x1
BSD name: en0
Kext name: RealtekRTL81xx.kext
Location: /System/Library/Extensions/RealtekRTL81xx.kext
Version: 0.0.90

I installed the latest Ethernet Realtek Drivers.....I just can't figure out on what else I have to do now


And this is the info which shows up in the Console App - when I try to login to iCloud

Nov 10 09:46:55 darkstar1 System Preferences[209]: The IAAccountDiscovery completed notification
Nov 10 09:47:05 darkstar1 System Preferences[209]: AOSKit ERROR: NI error, status=-44006

And you added the Built-in fix in the file /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist ?:
[codebox] <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>Yes</string>[/codebox]
Restart and try again, in first place should works App Store.

I used ##### 4.1.0 and installed latest Chameleon v2.1svn r1686

I have Wifi working as usb device in interface en1

Also, I just don't understand on how ethernet Built in is false in NetworkInterfaces.plist, whereas it is enabled in Chameleon's boot file.

I just can't figure out what else do I have to do now?

Thanks,

flynn

Ethernet in NetworkInterfaces must to be "true".

Please upload your files o.c.B.p & smbios.plist. Also your .ioreg (using IORegistryExplorer.app) by "save a copy as" option.

Can you surf in internet by the Ethernet connection? I mean, is working fine?

I will need to take a look to those three (3) files.

Hi,

Here are the three files, I did change the system to Mac Mini in Smbios, and right now I am using the Ethernet Device for Internet Access....local physical ethernet card does work fine ...(en0 is up).

I hope these files are helpful.

Thanks,

flynn

PS - I have zipped the 3 files for you

OK, I see (ioreg) you don't have Ethernet device in your DSDT. I know this is a little bit off-topic BUT Please upload your dsdt to inject that device. I will apply the easy Built-in fix too, and you will delete the EthernetBuiltIn flag from o.c.B.p to test.

Where do I upload the DSDT....I got the application DSDTSE, and in it I did extract a DSDT and saved it. I am reading tutorials on DSDT...just confused on what exactly is my next step here?

I did part of your job :( So, please tell me a different history :P about success!

1) Please use (copy/paste) the three (3) files into the .zip attached ... all to your /Extra folder:
- dsdt.aml
- o.c.B.p
- smbios.plist

2) Backup your NetworkInterfaces.plist, and delete it from the SystemConfiguration folder, then restart OS X. Good Luck.

3) Test, and upload other .ioreg please, to see the changes.

Notes: Compare the files attached with yours. I build the profile (smbios.plist) manually. Therefore, to understand how works see THIS, it is very easy for almost every model you want… to make the CORRECT PROFILE. BTW, thanks to google your example case is HERE. And finally, don't share your own genuine Mac Serial.

Thank You SIR.....You Are the Man!!!!

Wow...

It works Great...I can't believe it - my hackintosh is working - I can iCloud and have data sync across my ipad 2 and iphone...

I will re-read those forums that you listed...in order to understand what all happened here.

1) I do see how much in depth the smbios.plist is - but I am sure it was with DSDT file

2) The changes in DSDT...how did you figure out on what needed to be there....How can I learn this more effectively.

And is this the code you entered in the DSDT file (DTGP Method)

Method (DTGP, 5, NotSerialized)    {        If (LEqual (Arg0, Buffer (0x10)                {                    /* 0000 */    0xC6, 0xB7, 0xB5, 0xA0, 0x18, 0x13, 0x1C, 0x44,                     /* 0008 */    0xB0, 0xC9, 0xFE, 0x69, 0x5E, 0xAF, 0x94, 0x9B                }))        {            If (LEqual (Arg1, One))            {                If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero))                {                    Store (Buffer (One)                        {                            0x03                        }, Arg4)                    Return (One)                }                If (LEqual (Arg2, One))                {                    Return (One)                }            }        }        Store (Buffer (One)            {                0x00            }, Arg4)        Return (Zero)    }


I am still trying to figure out on how to use DSDTSE.

Thank you again sir....you rock....and how can I repay for this awesome help. Does this site take Donations?

:)

Your Welcome. Thank you is enough for me, and... your IOReg again PLEASE. I want to see the changes from DSDT, smbios and o.c.B.p... look at detailed because was the three (3) modification impact.

For dsdt things (off-topic) serch in the .dsl file (not in the .aml) and find the word "*fixed" w/o quotes. The most important is the Built-in fix I added to your new Ethernet (GIGE) Device.

And in other hand, can you change the title to "(SOLVED) iCloud and Face... etc", because so many people is around there repeating again and again about iCloud, facetime, App Store and so on... all this can be fixed very easy with the RIGHT THINGS you know. Thank you.

Beautiful, see the built-in (00) to the right. It is a really easy fix from the DSDT, no need the chameleon flag anymore.

Also, the "essential" and "expected" behavior OF COURSE in Network Interfaces (en0 Now is True):

I 'm still stuck with "Account limit reached" error despite trying 10s of serial numbers :)

Edit: I noticed that no matter the SN in the smbios.plist file is, the SN shown in the system profile is always the same (See the attached pic). Maybe that's why iCloud doesn't work for me.

Can anyone explain why this issue ?

TIA

I'm using the EX58-UD5 and I can not for the life of me get iCloud to work. Looking at the IORegistryExplorer my network devices are showing up as built it. I've tried all the various fixes here on InsanelyMac: Used champlist.app, deleted network config files/restarted. Havent modified DSDT (since my network is showing up as built in, nor do I know what to add/modify)

I continue to always get "This Apple ID is valid but is not an iCloud account." I do have an account on iPhone.
