FaceTime and iCloud not working

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow hackintoshers. I'm having a problem with both FaceTime and iCloud not letting me log in. I'm on 10.7.2 and I CAN log into the app store and iTunes but FaceTime give the "Server encountered and error during registration" message and iCloud give the "This is an Apple ID but not an iCloud ID" message. It's a dell laptop that is 100% functional except for these problems and I've tried every possible solutions that has been posted already but nothing worked.

 

What I've Tried...

My ethernet is built-in. I've checked my hosts file. I've changed my smbios. I've tried changing the date & time preferences to automatically configure. I've tried different versions of chameleon and chimera including 755. I've tried deleting my network preferences.plist. I've tried ethernet builtin=yes with efi string. I've tried editing my dsdt.

 

My Ethernet Card

Realtek RTL8168B:

 

Name: ethernet

Type: Ethernet Controller

Bus: PCI

Slot: Built-in

Vendor ID: 0x10ec

Device ID: 0x8168

Subsystem Vendor ID: 0x1028

Subsystem ID: 0x0275

Revision ID: 0x0002

Link Width: x1

BSD name: en0

Kext name: RealtekRTL81xx.kext

Location: /System/Library/Extensions/RealtekRTL81xx.kext

Version: 0.0.90

 

I must be missing something and I'm hoping that someone else has had this problem and found a working solution. Please help me if you can. Thanks.

By any chance do you have 2 ethernet sockets on your motherboard?

 

en1 is active while en0 is inactive..

 

If so, try swapping ports, if not

 

Open /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist

 

Post the contents and I'll show you how to set your network to en0 rather than en1.

 

It's also worth checking that the serial you're using is recognised as a MacPro3,1.

Add

<key>SMsystemversion</key>
<key>1.0</key>

to smbios.plist to define it as a desktop

(may not be 100% necessary but can't hurt)

 

Also remove the first key and string from smbios.plist, about the copyright. I don't know if it will help but it doesn't need to be there.

1. Open System preferences > Network and remove all of your interfaces.

 

2. Open NetworkInterfaces.plist again and edit like the sections in bold below.

(you may have to copy to desktop, edit, then copy back.)

 

3. Restart

 

4. Open System preferences > Network and add your network interfaces. Add en0 first, click apply, then continue with the rest.

 

5. Try appstore

thank you for the replies. I've tried all your suggestions and still not working. Are there any more possible solutions I could try? The curiosity is killing me. Right now the only thing I haven't tried is a clean install. But what if I do that and it still doesn't work?

Ok, do you have 2 ethernet ports on your motherboard?

en1 in active again even though we switched the previously active en1 to en0.

 

What bootloader are you currently using?

If you are using chameleon, it needs to be 2.1 and a revision greater than 1650.

 

If you are already using the latest/recent build of chameleon, try this:

Reboot

at chameleon enter EthernetBuiltIn=Yes -v

Try app store

yea i switched ethernet to en1 but when it didn't work I switched it back. I do have the latest version of chameleon and the app store has been working for me. But your saying I should try to put ethernet back to en1 and then boot with ethernetbuiltin = yes? I don't know if this matters, but I have ethernet being recognized as built-in by dsdt.

 

I forgot to tell you I only have 1 ethernet port. I also have wifi, firewire, and bluetooth that show up in Network Preferences.

Ethernet should be set to en0 but if your app store works this may not be the problem.

 

Your serial number checks out as a MacPro3,1.

How would I check my model besides system profiler? System profiler shows it as mac pro.

 

I'll probably do a clean install tomorrow and hopefully that'll do it.

well, I just did a clean install of 10.7.2 on a new partition and both FaceTime and iCloud are still not working. I guess I gotta just accept that it won't work. Maybe it will after the next update. Thanks anyway for all the suggestions
