Hi, I managed to make Imessage and icloud to work.

1. Star iMessageDebug on real Mac hardware. I used Macbook air 2014 as I installed hackintosh on notebook.

2. Take serial number and board number. Change it a little with a know pattern to make unique.

3. Star iMessageDebug on your huckintosh and take smUUID.

4. In Clover editor fill smUUID(the one you get from imessagedebug), Serial number (the one you changed to make it unique) Board Number (the one you changed to make it unique).

5. Clear caches with this #####

6. Restart and login to imessage. 

7.????

8. Profit.

Is MLB serial in the ioreg? All I can find is system serial. Also did I get this right, if my correctly formatted serial is ABCDEFGHIJKL, my MLB would be ABCDEXXXXXFGHIJKL?

I wanted to report I now have iMessage working without a real MLB. I used the tool from http://www.insanelym...c-board/page-13 post #260 to generate a 13 digit MLB and I used the mac address from my Apple wifi card (from http://osxwifi.com (not sure if this is relevant?)) for the ROM. My smUUID is randomly generated with uuidgen and my serial is randomly generated by Clover Configurator. I received the customer code error and it took a one minute call to Apple and I'm sending and receiving SMS now!

 

I'll add that I tried to use the 17 digit MLB generator by the same author and that didn't work. I received an error with no customer code.

Checking in to report my iMessage is still working flawlessly.

Hello everyone,

I read this thread entirely, and I think this is very interesting topic IMO. However, the knowledge about MLB is still incomplete, and for 17-digit MLB, the meanings of some digits are still unknown so I decided to do a little research by myself.

When I was collecting serials from various iFixit guides, I found that even other Apple parts (heatsink, HDD, AirPort card, etc.) also had their serials similar to that of MLB. So I started wondering if Apple has a standard to create their serials for parts/components from suppliers, which means that we should also look into the serials of other parts/components instead of logic board serials only.

So I collected serials of not only logic boards but also other Mac parts, and did some analyses on them. And here is my hypothesis about the pattern of these serials:

PPPYWWDNNNNEEEECC

Where:

PPP – The location of production, which is usually the same as the PPP part (first 3 digits) of system serial. The most common value for this component is C02 (Quanta Computer – China).

Y – Year of production (e.g: 0 for 2010, 1 for 2011, 2 for 2012 and so on).

WW – Week of production. This component ranges from 01 to 53, and is usually 1 – 2 weeks earlier than the week number implied in system serial.

D – Day of production. I checked the serials and found that this digit ranges from 1 to 7 (with 1 is the least popular value). So I doubt this digit tells us the day of production (with 1 for Sunday -> 7 for Saturday).

NNNN – Production Unit Number. This component’s function is similar to the Production Number component in the system serial (6th – 8th digits). The digits seem to be alphanumeric (with the exclusion of letter I and O), and the first digit of the component is usually 0 (zero).

EEEE – EEE Code, which links to the hardware specification of the board. Its function is quite similar to that of the Model ID component in system serial (last 4 digits). The EEE code can be found on many websites that sell Mac parts (e.g: macpartsonline.com).

CC – Unknown. Like many of you, I don’t really know about the meaning of the two last digits (could be a checksum or sth). But from my analysis, the first digit of the component is usually 1 or A, and the second digit is alphanumeric (excluding letter I and O).

 

Note: One thing interesting is that while I was writing this post, I looked again at the analysis report and realized that none of the serial (even system serial) contains the letter I or O. So we should exclude the two letters when generating the serial (no Base36 here).

 

I attached here the list of serials I collected, as well as their statistic reports. The serials were analyzed automatically and reports were created by a self-made program. Hope these details may help.

 

And a warning: DO NOT use those collected serials in your Hackintosh - Cloned serials will likely be banned by Apple.

Is the 13 digit MLB you made the same value as the Board Serial Number in the SMBIOS section of Clover Configurator? Imessage-debug says that my BoardSerialNumber is my 13 digit MLB, but I'm worried the different value for the one in SMBios is causing my issues. Otherwise everything is the same and it's not working for me.

 

Awesome! Sorry if this sounds dumb, but does this mean we can start creating the new 17 digit MLBs to activate iMessage instead of the older 13 digit ones?

What I wrote above is just hypothesis, not surely 100% correct. However, Apple has relaxed the MLB verification check, so even a 'MLB' created by adding 5 random characters to the system serial may work (this information is from the topic 'How to Fix iMessage' by jaymonkey - google it yourself).

My hypothesis may only help you to generate a MLB serial that seems to conform Apple's serial format. I don't guarantee that the generated serial will work, and you may still have to call Apple support to white-list the generated MLB serial.

I've been trying to create 12 digit MacbookPro10,2 serial. I wanted to do it myself rather than using genarators and I read everything I found, but I still don't guite understand it.

 

I created couple of MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2013) serials and checked those with Apples checkcoverage site. Two of those passed and was reported as genuine serials, so I must have created those correctly, but I don't understand how it says both are Early 2013. Serials are below, I thought "K" is first half and "L" is second half on 2013 models.

 

 

C02L9XXXFFRP - Ok - Early 2013
C02K7XXXFFRP - Ok - Early 2013

Hi people,

 

could someone help me to generate a good MLB and Serial Number, that are "logically connected" between them? I didn't understand so good how to do it.

Guys,

 

This guide states "ROM part is defined in SmUUID and should be 12 chars  and match the Apple's MAC address standard, otherwise illegal"

 

 

Is this still valid ?

 

Just come across a real iMac 17,1 with 11 char ROM value %ff%ff%ff%ff%fff or is it likely that this iMac has not been setup to communicate with the internet. It's a show piece for everyone to view and play with. There was no connectivity to the internet.

 

Any feedback please

The day of week supposition looks unlikely to me after looking at "al3xtjames" MacGen scripts (https://github.com/al3xtjames/MacGen).  This repository has what appears to be an extensive catalogue of valid identifies and the MLB is documented as:

    PPP Y WW TTT CC EEEE KK

 

where:

      TTT is the board type

      CC  is hypothesized to be a checksum (but not known)

      KK is not explained in comments

 

He has a list of presumed valid values (selects one at random when generating MLB):

   for CC:  'GU' '4N' 'J9' 'QX' 'OP' 'CD' '3F' 'U5' 'KP' 'D5' 'SJ' '7P' 'RG' 'W5' '92' 'MA' '2Y' '26' 'L0' 'NA' 'TL' '2D' '8U'

   for KK: '1H' '1M' 'AD' '1F' 'A8' 'UE' 'JA' 'JC' '8C' 'CB' 'FB' 'A6' 'AL' 'AN' '16' 'A5' 'AH' 'AA' 'AD' 'AK' 'AN' '1W' 'AY' '1A'

From my catalogue of half a dozen 2011-era (A1311) boards it's quite plausible that he has the TTT board type field correctly identified.  The boards I've seen have codes of:   100, 105, 201, 401, 601 (though, as you note, all of the first digits are in the range [1,7], so maybe you're right)

@amble, little late, but I see similar problem here with SERIAL (they talk about MLB here).

So It would be nice if someone knows why amble and my sn is not correct following the assumed format of the new 12char serial.

 

PPPYWSSSCCCC where suposedly Y=year and W=week.

 

Y=> CDFGHJKLMNPQRSTVWXYZ where P should be early 2015 and Q late 2015.

These made serials C02TM2A9GG7L, C02PK1M1GG7L both gives iMac 17,1 late 2015 on everymac and shipmunk !? Don't use these so everyone can check for themselves.

 

Sorry for the off topic.
