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

      Hi,
      I used OpenCore with this configuration:
      -b450i Aorus pro wifi
      - ryzen2700
      - rx5700
      - dw1560
       
       
      I followed the instruction and Catalina 10.5.2 works flawlessly. Usb power, bluetooth patched, iCloud,  airplay. audio, gpu.
       
      The only thinks that aren't working are iMessage, FaceTime and handoff.
       
      iMessage Error: a.cicala@logicsolution.com
      FaceTime Error: This account has not reachable addresses. Please signing to appleid.apple.com in order to add one.
      I think it could be related to ROM configuration in PlatformInfo-> Generic -> Rom 
       
      But even if I tries to change the value it doesn't seems to work.
       
      Steps I've done:
       
      - Change Rom Value
      - Change entirely the Generic settings
      - Used CloverConfigurator to create a new rom value
      - checked that en0 is stetted in Wifi
      - removed  [~/Library/Caches/com.apple, ... , networkPreferences.plist] files
       
      Is anything wrong I'm doing in the rom code creation? I attach my config.plist (without  smUUID) maybe in OpenCore I should use not data but string type?

      Hello InsanelyMac users,
       
      I'm constantly getting into troubles with iMessage & FaceTime on my Hackintosh.
      When I'm trying to activate iMessage on my hackintosh I'm getting message to contact apple with a customer code.
      Registration failed for <private> (Error: 31) My build is based on Lenovo ThinkCentre M83 MT which specifications is:
       
      CPU: Intel Core i7-4770
      MB: Lenovo SHARKBAY (Intel Q85)
      AD: Realtek 662v2
      LAN: Intel I217-LM
      BL: Clover 5070
      Native NVRAM
       
      My SMBIOS seems be properly generated for iMac14,2
      I've used macserial to generate serial numbers and MLB.
       
      For RTVariables I've use MacAddr0 of my LAN Card.
       
       
      Maybe someone else haves idea which thing can cause these errors?

      Hello all!
       
      I have successfully got my Hackbook online, using USB tethering. Thanks to Herve (can't use special characters, you know who you are!), I also got my audio working.
       
      I am very much ready to begin setting up iCloud, the App Store, and iMessage/FaceTime. Those services (especially the latter two) are what got me into hackintoshing.
       
      Problem: The listed services fail to sign me in. iCloud sign in from System Preferences returns "Unable to sign in because of a problem communicating with iCloud."
      FaceTime returns a registration process fail, the App Store reports that my computer can't be verified, and iMessage reports an activation error. However, iTunes works, except no Apple Music.
       
      HARDWARE:
      Intel Core i7-2630QM
      GeForce GT 525M (using integrated HD 3000 graphics instead)
      Custom Dell L502X A12 BIOS w/ UEFI support
       
      SOFTWARE:
      OS X Mavericks 10.9.5
      AppleALC + VoodooHDA for audio
      VoodooPS2Controller (trackpad kext likes to cause KP during boot, sometimes)
       
      Any possible fixes for this?
      Thanks in Advance!
       
      Installus.

      iMessage Fixer is an application which helps you to completely reset your iMessage and FaceTime settings. This app will remove all the preferences related to iMessage and iCloud account from your system and it will also remove the NetworkInterface preferences from your system, so please use with caution. If you are having activation issues with iMessage, this application is not the answer but if you already activated iMessage on your Mac or Hack and the Messages is acting up you can use this app to fix it.
       
      Your iMessage history will be erased and you might need to sing back in in iMessage and FaceTime.
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      This is a quick guide on how to fix iMessage/Messages and FaceTime:
      There are other issues that can result in imessage/Messages and FaceTime not working properly like using a blacklisted Serial Number or MLB or SmUUID or simply an unactivated AppleID. If that's the case you need to use Clover Configurator 5.2.0.1 (or newer version) to rebuild your SMBIOS data with the most updated details like shown in the picture below:
       

       
      All you have to do is to select the SMBIOS section and then form the SMBIOS selector choose the most compatible SMBIOS with your hardware:
       

       
      Then you need to select the RtVariable section to generate the MLB based on your SMBIOS data and then just click the Generate button next to ROM to automatically generate the MLB and ROM ID based on your SMBIOS and then copy/paste the MLB from the newly generated info into the MLB box next to the ROM filed. Save your new config.plist
       

       
      Once you did the steps above and save the config, close Clover Configurator and the run the iMessage Fixer app and then reboot the computer, once macOS is loaded, login into iMessage or Messages using your AppleID and hopefully you can activate your iMessage and FaceTime.

      Important Note:
      If you already signed in AppStore or iCloud using your current config.plist you might need to remove that device from iCloud in order to prevent the Account Lock Up by Apple because once you change the Serial Number, MLB and SmUUID Apple's server will lock your account in order to protect your data and you need to rest the password for your AppleID.

      I hope you find this helpful.
      Cheers
