  1. So I'm running Yosemite on an HP Sandy Bridge laptop with MacBook 8,2 system definition, and I just picked up the same year(2011) Sandy Bridge MacBook Pro 8,2 that is ridiculously close to the end of it's life. I don't plan on using iMessage or FaceTime if I even use the MBP at all (it's screen is cracked, missing keys, aluminum falling apart, it's had a rough life). So I've taken the SMBIOS variables using iMessage_debug V2, but I'm not sure on what the best way to apply these is and I've seen a lot of conflicting information in the many forums I've checked out. I've seen people imply that MLB and ROM are the only really important variables here, and that if you're taking these values from a real mac that these ones are the only ones you should take while separately generating a serial number, smUUID etc from Clover Configurator or uuidgen. I've also seen people recommend to simply make sure the output of iMessage_debug exactly replicates your hack and real Mac (in the case where the system definition matches the Mac that you're getting the variables from). I've seen people say that you shouldn't take any variables, ever, at all, even from a retired Mac that you already own. A good chunk of the material I've found on this subject is over 5 years old, which is why I think I'm finding a lot of conflicting information. In addition to that most guides etc are written from the standpoint of someone that does not have another mac to take the variables from, and if they do mention scenarios like this it's so briefly touched that I'm still left unsure. Does anyone more experienced have any personal recommendations for someone specifically in my case, where I own a Mac that matches the system definition I'm using for my hack?
  2. Hi, I have a TL-WDN4800 wifi card (PCIe) with Atheros chipset and a usb CSR 4.0 bluetooth dongle (LMP 0x6) but I don't have the option to enable Handoff in system prefs. Is there some tweak/plist edit possible to enable it or do I need to change hardware? Please advice. Thanks, BiTRiP
  3. Handoff option was present under System Preferences -> General in DP6 and before, but is gone in DP7. Also console shows message: 14:11:58.737 : Device Capabilities (Handoff:NO, Instant Hotspot:NO, AirDrop:YES, Legacy AirDrop:YES, Remote Disc:YES) My wifi card is BCM94352HMB. Anyone with same issue?
  4. Third-party app brings cool iOS 8/OS X Yosemite features to Android AirDroid One of the coolest new features that Apple introduces with OS X 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8 is Continuity. This feature allows users to take calls and reply to text messages sent to their iPhone direct from their Mac. Well, AirDroid 3 now brings that power and flexibility to the Android and Windows platforms. In fact, as cool and useful as Apple's Continuity feature is, AirDroid 3 goes way beyond what iPhone and Mac users get. AirDroid 3 allows users to access and manage their Android phone or tablet from Windows, Mac or the web, wirelessly, for free (although there is a premium version for people who want more than the basics). Here are just some of the features on offer: Send and receive individual or group messages Transfer files, photos, music and videos between Android and computer from any network (large files require premium upgrade) Play and manage music and videos on Android and transfer them between Android and computer See through the lens of both front and back cameras (premium feature) Push URLs to the Android device and have them open with default web browser Take photos of anyone trying to unlock your device (premium feature) End-to-end encryption AirDroid 3 requires that you install an app on your Android device and software on your Mac or PC. Following a simple setup process you are then ready to enjoy much greater integration between your devices. From:www.zdnet.com/article
