Hey guys, as i've promised did a clean 10.8 install today and i can confirm it does not inherited the icloud problems. The only custom kexts it loaded was chameleon default fakesmc and the one for my atheros integrated ethernet beside that and the safeboot -x bootflag nothing was changed so i think we can assume that Game Center works OOB with latest ANV kernel.

Cheers...

Just for curiosity i tried to import a user that was imported from a real mac to a mountain lion installation on another partition to my current lion installation, the workaround seems to work as well but for some reason even with the applications folder unselected it messed up some stock applications such as calendar and mail. But again, this workaround works even from another system version, in this case from 10.8.3 to 10.7.5.

Out of curiosity, it messes Calendar and Mail in which way? Don't they work anymore after the user migration?

:wacko: sorry bro, i just remember the forbidden sign and don't remember what the system says when i tried to open them, my bad :wacko: i'll try it again and report back since i've deleted the user due to these problems.

I think they were replaced by the mountain lion ones, not sure... Maybe the config files were replaced and this messed things up, really don't know.

Edit: Found the problem! I did it again and noticed that the dock preferences was imported too. So i clean it up by using
defaults delete com.apple.dock
and
killall Dock
. :)

Thought i'd better post the slim down version of what happens to here as well.

You can use theconnactic method of Migration of an Account or find a working Mac/Intel Hack create an account and copy these files.

error was when i used rc6 kernel from bronya. but when i replaced it with kernel v2 from cabba, icloud succesfully conected to servers. after that no matter what kernel i use. icloud working with every kernel. and now i have working icloud on amd again.
