I'm not able to sign into the app store or iCloud because I'm getting: Your device or computer could not be verified.


What I've tried so far:
1) Deleting NetworkInterfaces.plist

2) I tried adding the <key>EthernetBuiltIn<key><string>Yes</string> to the end of my boot.plist, but it didn't work and it messed up my video plus changed my start up. Here's my current plist:


<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>GenerateCStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string></string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>1</string>


</dict>
</plist>

Should I be adding it to the end or should it be in the middle?

I've also heard that using the PCIRootUID fix in ###### could help, but I haven't used it yet bc I don't want to create any additional problems.

Here's the way my nic appears too:

Ethernet:

Type: Ethernet
Hardware: Ethernet
BSD Device Name: en0
IPv4 Addresses: 192.168.1.205
IPv4:
Addresses: 192.168.1.205
Configuration Method: DHCP
Interface Name: en0



Anymore tips would be greatly appreciated!!

I'm suspecting you don't have a smbios.plist. Among other things this would identify your computer as an existing Apple model and would have a valid Apple serial number.

You can often download a plist that someone has attached to a posting or you can use something like Champlist and Chameleon Wizard to generate one.

I actually do have one, but maybe I need to adjust it. I'm not sure.

I would add the EthernetBuiltIn flag below the GraphicsEnabler and above Timeout.
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>GenerateCStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string></string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>1</string>

FYI, PCIRootUID fix is for [PCI Configuration Begin] freezes and graphics scrambling issues.

Looks fine except maybe the SMbiosversion. Mine is:


<key>SMbiosversion</key>
<string>MP41.0082.B04</string>

Only problem is that SMbiosversion is for MacPro4,1.

Download Chameleon Wizard and use a pre-defined SMBIOS plist.

Thanks so far guys..I tried the changing the location of the <key>EthernetBuiltIn<key> <string>Yes</string>. It didn't knock out my graphics, but the timeout doesn't work anymore. Most importantly it didn't fix the issue so I'll move on the Chameleon Wizard. I'm looking at it now and will use of the pre-defined options iMac 12,1 - LGA 1155.

This is my new smbios but it still doesn't work!! How frustrating! Anything I can try with the network settings?

Remove the EthernetBuiltIn string manually from the plist and add it via Chameleon Wizard.

Your SMBIOS is correct as well.

It could also be a Chimera bug. Maybe install the trunk branch via Chameleon Wizard...select the Install button, click the Buildbot tab, click Connect to Buildbot, and when it loads click the little package icon that appears next to the pop-up menu, save it, and run the package. Then add the EthernetBuiltIn flag via Chameleon Wizard.

It's saying Chameleon revision: Unknown. Connect to Buildbot is greyed out. Could I just go to the org.chameleon section and select it?

I decided to try it anyway and it did the trick for the app store! It wasn't working with iCloud at first, but then it did! Can't thank you guys enough for your help with this!
