I dare you to sign out and try signing back in
Thus begins the end of hackintosh. was a good run guys
Like to point out even if this was deliberate there's a massive difference between not being able to run an OS and a messaging application not verifying with a server properly...
yup, they banned hackintosh
It's not confined to Hackintosh, also dislike the use of the term banned.
If you load your hackintosh Disk to a real Mac, and access iMessage it works fine. Transfer it back and it does not work.
Perhaps a fix might lie in Fakesmc.kext as it is that file that persuades OSX it is running on real Mac hardware.
Come on you Devs out there any ideas as many would appreciate it. I would also confirm that the problem is confined to hacks irrespective of whether they are booted with Chameleon or the amazing Clover....
Perhaps Mr. Slice a Fakesmc expert might consider what the issues are.???
Not FakeSMC related as far as I can tell. Although it doesn't fake the information properly in itself, people have done it manually and it still hasn't worked.
I think the authorization just expires after n days; that's the way other services in the iCloud/ubiquity family handle it any rate.
Agreed. Had a working Messages via Snapshot and worked for a good couple of weeks after the initial issue. Think the authorization ran out at the New Year, although can't be specific because I don't use iMessage day-to-day.
