#2061680 OS X 10.9.5 Update Released for Mac

Posted by theconnactic on 18 September 2014 - 01:34 AM

Yosemite is running solid as my only desktop OS, even on my workstation hack. Might as well take a look anyway because of my wife's computer, since she has a healthy fear of betas. :)

#2061059 [FIX]iMessage not working. "Apple ID can't be used right now..."

Posted by theconnactic on 16 September 2014 - 06:24 AM

No. I use my MBP's on my signature's iHack. No issues at all.

DP8 installed: still rock solid for me.

#2058463 Mavericks kernel testing on AMD (formerly Mountain Lion kernel testing on AMD)

Posted by theconnactic on 06 September 2014 - 10:43 PM

I watch Netflix everyday with my AMD rig - in fact, it's its sole purpose these days (as my only HTPC). No degradation, no glitches, no KPs, no issues at all. 10.9.4 here, and used Rampage's awesome DMG for my board, so that's probably the way to go: AMD DMG Released All the best!

Yosemite DP7 here: everything works as advertised, including iMessage and FaceTime. Of course, for these two, I resorted to a safer method: http://www.insanelym...behaving-again/

I'm at the same boat as AHDHMedia. I updated anyway, and nothing changed for worse yet. :)

Yes, they need. It depends on what you intend to get. For example, you'll need a patch for HDMI audio - but you must already know your internal graphics card is not supported yet, so this patch is kind of useless for you until this changes. All the best!

I prefer when people mock Voldemort rather than cry about him. If it's coming to that, it's evolution. Humor is always a positive catharsis. At least better than whining and petty gossip. All the best.

Run hw benchmarks.

#2049887 USB keyboard/mouse don't wake yosemite, only power button does

Posted by theconnactic on 09 August 2014 - 03:12 AM

I checked your topic and had the issue you report here with Yosemite DP1, Clover, and IGPU first (otherwise I can have both iGPU and GPU working) and it inexplicably went away when I did a simple reboot (you know, I almost really never restart my computer). Now it's back, since I updated to DP5, and doing a reboot won't solve it. I thought it could be the Clover revision I use - r2975 is very buggy - but since you're having the issue with Chameleon, perhaps it's a DP thing. P.S.: back then, when I have the issue with Yosemite, Slice recommended me to set AddClockID as false in the Devices/USB/ section of my config.plist. As I said, I just had to reboot and the bug went away that time. I thing I even hadn't this section in my config.plist, since I like to inject the minimum, relying on my good old DSDT and SSDT. Since restarting wasn't giving me any benefit this time, I just went ahead and checked my current config.plist - which is not the same I had, since I reinstalled Clover for s...

With Mavericks, Fabiuzi... And it simply went away. Don't ask me how. I checked your topic and had the issue you report there - which is different from what I report here, since you can actually wake the computer from the power switch without having to do a hard reboot, right? - with Yosemite DP1, Clover, and IGPU first (otherwise I can have both iGPU and GPU working) and it also inexplicably went away when I did a simple reboot (you know, I almost really never restart my computer). Now it's back, since I updated to DP5, and doing a reboot won't solve it. I thought it could be the Clover revision I use - r2975 is very buggy - but since you're having the issue with Chameleon, perhaps it's a DP thing.

#2049778 iMessage and FaceTime - misbehaving again!

Posted by theconnactic on 08 August 2014 - 06:56 PM

Hi again! As an experiment, I backed up my config.plist from my 1201N, wiped the entire EFI folder from its EFI partition, deleted also the boot file, and reinstalled everything from scratch following (again) TimeWalker's guide, using his updated package installer, as per this post:             #7             I immediately lost the ability of log in to both iMessage and FaceTime. Same symptoms I was experiencing when I created this topic. So I can safely say Walker's guide and tools, regardless how well designed both of them are, don't address iMessage and FaceTime issues, at least on Yosemite. He reports having both services working fine, and that's good, but it seems it was mostly luck, for the fact of old ways of enabling iMessage and FaceTime are still working for him. Unfortunately, that's not true for a growing number of people. For them, including me, Fusion/El Nono solution of including certain legiti...

I want to know which kind of apples look like that one. Perhaps a transgenic variety, sold only in his realm? Hmmmm... Seriously, it looks like a tomato. Or perhaps a persimmon, who knows? I always though it was a joke: "Macintoshes from Apple work, hackintoshes from tomato fields". I used to give him credit for this. Who knows?

#2049249 iMessage and FaceTime - misbehaving again!

Posted by theconnactic on 07 August 2014 - 04:52 AM

Solved! Silliest mistake possible: so silly even you couldn't spot it on my config.plist. See: <key>MLB</key> <data>xxxxxxx</data> instead of <string>xxxxxxx</string> The mistake was present in both MLB and ROM keys. Corrected it, now everything goes fine. But I must add this: thanks to I being very specific in the SMBIOS, it still displays as a MacBookAir in System Report. I'll mark this as solved, for everyone to know your solution works even in cases like mine. Thank you very much for the advices and patience to help me out. All the best!
