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. :P

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.???


Pleeeeze....


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.

Chill guys. This isn't targeting hackintosh. How do I know? It doesn't work on their own officialvirtual machines. Probably just a little QC slipup that'll be fixed with 10.8.3.

I'm running 10.8.3 dev build and it's not working. We can always hope they add in a fix before releasing it but they're already pretty far into the cycle so doubt they will get it in ( if they even want to).

I did raise a support ticket with VMWare as it doesn't work in my VM under Fusion and that is an Apple supported configuration. I would suggest other registered Fusion users raise similar support requests so we get some traction on this.

How did you do that?
What bootload do you use? Chimera or chameleon? and what version?
and what is most important thing for iMessage?

Ah, ok, I have not logged out of iMessage on this machine since I upgraded it to 10.8, with that in mind, I prefer not to lose the iMessage functionality.

Boot loader
Chameleon 2.1svn (svn-r2030)

Aha, you did not upgrade from 10.8.0 to 10.8.2, right?
so you use 10.8.0, right?

Big information,
If so, I better use 10.8.0. :D

OMG!! unbelievable!
How did you do that?
Do you share your boot file, /Extra folder and several your kext in /S/L/E ?
and do you use chameleon in this post? first one not Enoch version, right?

I also never ever log out iMessages, but, login failed occurred in one day.

Once the tokens expire or they log out they will not be able to log in unless it gets resolved before then, so those files aren't going to help us much, Ritz.

yea, I think so, but, I'd better test and check for confirmation,
