Before you say "there are 100 other threads about this", I have looked around and not found a fix that works for me. 

 

I don't know exactly what info I need to tell you in here, other than messages worked fine for me on 10.8.5, then upgraded to mavericks when it released and I cannot log in. Originally I was getting a "An error occurred during activation. Try again." None of the solutions I attempted caused a changed in this error, except when I changed my appleID password. Now I am just getting a hang when I try to log into iMessage, but still no successful login. 

 

I am using Chimera 2.2.1 (which i think bundles the most recent chameleon). Everything I read says that this boot loader is supposed to fix the iMessage issue but it seems not to in my case. I have gone through the replacing the FileNVRam and having the nvram.plist regenerated. I don't know exactly what is supposed to be in this plist (forums I have read seem to give sporadic advice about this). I realize that to receive help, I probably need to post more information for you, but I don't know what that is at this point. 

 

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer, as I am out of ideas on how to proceed. Will update this thread if I find a solution.

 

UPDATE: Fixed using the official chameleon from the downloads section on this site, instead of chimera. This did not work for me the first few times I had tried, so YMMV on this? Not exactly sure why it fixed it on the 3rd of 4th try.

Same boat as you buddy.  I have tried all solutions I have found, delete network interfaces, deleting plist, changing smbios, FileNVRam, changed password.  

 

This always seems to happen when a new point updated comes out.  People take a while to get installed and are so excited about that, functionality comes later... 

 

I am using chimera as well, maybe clover or chameleon would fix haven't tried that.

Well....I tried this last night 3 times and got nothing to work. Thought I'd give it one more try just so I could say "Yup I tried it again buddy thanks for nothing...", but it fixed it. NO IDEA why this would have not worked the 3 times I tried it last night. I will be sure to mention this to the chimera people. Thanks for the tip. Feel like a major idiot right now.

I have a Dell XPS 435T - Intel X58 - trying to install Mavericks and I am having the same problem with iMessage, iCloud, and the App Store. I tried Chameleon but it's a no go too. Maybe I'm doing it wrong? I did a normal install, but is there more to do to get this "fix" to work?

 

Also, what role does the i386 folder play in the installation of Chameleon?

what you did exactly? I have the same problem and tried everything

 

After installing Mavericks iCloud was working but in maps my iPhone didn't show up so I read to disconnect iCloud and connect again.... when I disconnected my account I wasn't able any more to log in.

Changed password, deleted plist, deleted ethernet, checked is en01,reinstalled chameleo, tried everything but I can't log in any more

I did all those things as well, without any success. What allowed me to get iMessage to work was finding FileNVRAM file, and dropping it into /Extra/Modules - afterwards restarted, logged in and iMessage worked liked a charm.

I've installed Clover and I've followed the instructions to obtain the UUID booting with Chamelon. Instead of Mountain Lion where iMessage, AppStore and iCloud works, on Mavericks I don't know what I have to do to make them works:

- iCloud give me error during connection.

- AppStore tell me that there's an unknown error.

- iMessage doesn't connect.

 

I had to install also the AppleACPI from Pandora'app (under Kext/patches and Asus x58) because with stock AppleACPIPlatform.kext, it gives me kernel panic as you can see in the screenshot.

What I have to do?? Thanks :)

So after I install Mavericks by MyHack, AppStore and iMessenger are working OOB, but iCloud is not working. After remove NetworkPrefs from S/L/P my AppStore and iCloud are working, but iMessenger stop working I don't know why...

 

What I already try:

  • Changed my appleID password
  • Check FileNVRam in EFIStudios
  • The process of editing the org.chameleon.Boot.plist with a new network interface(http://www.insanelym...ore-and-icloud/)
  • Install Chimera 2.2.1 in the HD
  • Install Chameleon 2.2 in the HD

 

Just wondering why iMessenger works in the beginning and stop working after I remove "NetworkPrefs" or after a have access to iCloud.
Maybe I cloud try fix the iCloud without removing the NetworkPrefs so that way I will be able to keep the iMessenger working.

Any idea of what should I try now will be helpful  ;)

 

Notes:

I'm using a Wifi Connection and not a Ethernet. I have BT, Ethernet and WiFi showing in Settings->Network

I'm using a USB to start/select the boot device. My MB don't detect boot from GUID HD's. (ASUS Z87-Pro)
