Oh no... I hope it isn't true

Although I don't really use this app for chatting, I find iMessage as a fast way to share camera shots between Apple devices.

Sorry for that. But your test just re-testifies that Apple is restricting hackintosh usage from some perspectives.

I have to firmly disagree. Apple is not conspiring against hackintosh. It really wouldn't work anyway. Besides...

Yes many real macs have same problem and for a variety of reasons, but in comparison to how many real macs don't have this problem it's a small number, so if your real mac is fine and hack is not, don't expect that to automatically mean it only effects hacks, it's just that you weren't lucky enough to win the lottery.

:D Maybe Apple thought it's the hackintosh that caused its message server down :D

Well shoot, today my iMessage stopped working as well. All was fine up until this morning, now I can not login. Seems Apple is indeed cracking down on hacks.

I just logged in on my image again, iMessage is working great. No issues at all. I wouldn't dare logout though. Tried to copy all the certificates and iMessage related encryption and login and it copied fine, because I'm not logged on it doesn't work. One thing to note is that all my certificates are expiring late 2013, earliest September 2013.

I'm out of ideas. It would be nice if we could sort this out a.s.a.p.

I quite miss it, although I've got an iPhone 4S and an iPad. It's a handy feature to have, shame if we lost it. We need to find out how Apple is authenticating the login and what else has changed since the 18th/19th of this month.

No, It's already logged in. That's the problem. I haven't logged out. As long as you are logged on you won't be kicked out.
At least that's the way I understand it. I have a Superduper image, last backed up to it a week or two ago. If i start that image up iMessage is logged on and I tested sending messages to my iPhone and iPad and it works fine.

You're right. I used to be logged on several days ago and was able to send messages. But having seen people complaining about this issue, I decided to give it a shot myself. So I was not able to sign in again. hhahaha

Just checking in to get some email notifications on the progress of this thread.

Same here iMessages stopped working a couple days ago.

This was Apples way of saying Merry Christmas Hackintosh Users!

I've found something strange in the console when I tried to log in to iMessage:
12/27/12 1:51:47.070 PM Messages[1513]: [Warning] Empty account query with service: iMessage
12/27/12 1:51:47.402 PM com.apple.SecurityServer[15]: Session 100052 created

It appears that some information required is not present. Here is what looks like in a real Mac, when encountering an error:
9/19/12 11:59:28.787 PM com.apple.SecurityServer[17]: Session 100014 created
9/19/12 11:59:32.216 PM Messages[256]: [Warning] Empty account query with service: iMessage
9/19/12 11:59:32.598 PM imagent[163]: [Warning] TRUST validation failed with result 5
9/19/12 11:59:32.598 PM imagent[163]: [Warning] FTFaceTimeServerBag: URL bag data invalid (not valid)
9/19/12 11:59:57.057 PM Console[269]: Marker - Sep 19, 2012 11:59:57 PM

See the different? The Apple server does not even bother to send a validation failure message to my computer. I guess this could be a clue and wonder what you guys have in your console app?

This looks like it's the way forward. Why did the real Mac got a failed validation?

Still out of town for another day or so, but looks like it's similar to iphone method and uses push services. May be possible to make it work in similar to methods used for siri on unsupported devices. Some more info here http://imfreedom.org/wiki/IMessage and here https://github.com/meeee/pushproxy which basically involves extracting valid keys/certs from keychain and side stepping the push server via proxy. Doesn't look fun, but there may be some hope, at least to keep logged in account from revalidating and staying logged in if you can get that far.

I too have fallen victim to this issue. Sometime in the last week i was signed out of Messages. I think it happened right after i activated a new iPad mini and setup Messages and Facetime on the iPad. Now i can't log back in. I have tried installing a fresh version of Mountain Lion on another drive but that didn't work. Hopefully someone can figure out what is going on here.

This is likely not only a hackintosh issue as it also effects jailbroken iPhones. To combat the jailbreaking they have implemented a fix to prevent people copy PUSH certificates from a working unmodded iPhone to a jailbroken one.

I am of the opinion that this entry in my log shows what the problem is on the hackintosh. I can also confirm that if I move the disk to a real mac pro and boot it, iMessage works fine, put it back in the hack and it doesn't.

This is the interesting entry that I think may be responsible.

I think it is something to do with the hosts file. Although it is different problem with hackintosh, it might be worthy to look at.

I don't believe it has anything to do with host files. Some people suggested that incorrect entries in the host file prevented imagent from communicating with Apple's servers but i have a clean host file and this issue still persists. If it helps anyone, here is the log when i try to enable iMessage:

It seems to be a widespread problem existing mainly on Hackintoshes. I recently added an iCloud email addy to my AppleID and ever since i've been logged / locked out as well. I just hope that somehow this is an oversight on Apple's end and not an actual countermeasure, if that'd be the case i'm extremely worried about facetime (less but still), itunes, the appstore and all of my purchased applications.

Are you using a Mac or hackintosh? I heard some Mac users do have trouble in logging into iMessage and it is because of the hosts file. But for hackintosh it is a different story.

What I am trying to do is to simply compare the log entries shown in Macs and hackintoshs, and hope it gives some clues of what is wrong.

These log entries are from my hackintosh. However, i was curious if these log entries showed up on my "real" macbook pro and indeed they do. So these errors are not specific to just my hackintosh.
