This fixed my iMessage login problem, thanks!
I didn't have an existing one to replace.

Congrats to you, guys!

I'd love to try it, but i had to go back to Clover for unrelated issues on the computers that are iMessage capable (specifically, both computers undergone hard-resets, one of them for a problem with Windows 8 and the other, after a Migration Assistant hang, and in both cases my system was rendered unbootable, and i couldn't boot even from my rescue USB stick - the partitions were not even seen by chameleon! - and all fixes i tried failed to solve the issue - i tried reinstalling chameleon, flashing boot1h, resizing the partition and aptempting disk repairs from the terminal, to no avail).

I still have chameleon on my AMD rig. It's running Snow Leopard: as soon as i can update it to Mountain Lion, this app will be really useful for me.

Best regards.

Year the problem with boot-args was really solved, the others I didnt have.

Congrats to you, guys!

But why, if you have so many issues, do you use Clover? Clover is not better than chameleon. At least, for me.

I agree, Alex009988. Just read my post again: it's quite self explanatory. :)

I finally found time to try this little gem.

My steps:
- update to Chameleon rev r2183
- drop FileNVRAM.dylib in my /Extra/Modules
- remove ACPICodec.dylib from /Extra/Modules
- move my DSDT.aml and SSDT.aml from /Extra/ACPI to /Extra
- reboot.

Booted back in to 10.8.2, I see I have nvram.xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx.plist in /Extra.
I load up iMessage, any voila.. all working.

So simple. Thank you for your work :)

One downside to this module is that when you change boot arguments in org.chameleon.boot.plist, it becomes permanent because the module stores the boot-args and then reloads them every time. You have to manually delete the boot-args using nvram from the command line. It would be nice if the module was smart enough to see that there is a difference in the boot args stored in the nvram.plist and the boot.plist and give the boot.plist the higher precedence.

Examining the contents of my /Extra/modules/FileNVRAM.dylib , I noticed a link inside to www.a10.com. The site does not appear to have anything to do with Apple. Anyone know what it is there for? I am just having had some security problems with my hackintosh so I am trying to track down possible backdoors.  Thanks!
