Problem: Can't login to iCloud, but App Store works.

**FOR THOSE WHO'VE TRIED EVERYTHING TO LOGIN TO ICLOUD/MESSAGES AND CAN'T. USE THIS KEXT**

PlatformUUID.kext

 

 

--------------------------------------

 

 

I tried every solution and combination to fix the issue. I could log into the Mac App Store and iTunes Store, however I couldn't login to iCloud or Messages account. I kept getting a message saying "This is an Apple ID but not a valid iCloud account."

 

 

For some reason my Hardware UUID was causing a conflict and using the built-in UUID changer in Chameleon's boot.plist wasn't able to change my UUID either.

 

 

This kext will force the UUID to change. Be sure to install it to S/L/E and not E/E.

Godspeed.

 

 

PS - Thanks to Superhai for making this kext!

It seems this kext is quite old. For UUID issues, I set Systemid in chameleon.plist file and everything is just fine.

Hi Stellarola, first of all I want to say thank you very much for all your contributions to the community.

 

Then, in my case I fixed the problem just following this tip by the master bcc9 to generate a valid - customized system UUID:

As of 10.7, you should have a SystemId defined as the 1340 doesn't have a UUID defined in its SMBIOS and booting hangs for a minute or so without it. I recommend you customize the template value I provided with the output from uuidgen (run from a terminal window).

http://www.insanelym...ps-1340-laptop/

 

So, from my org.chameleon.Boot.plist I have for example:

SystemId

6858A18D-0C0E-9EEE-7FB9-C5F600323428

 

Best regards.

<string>6858A18D-0C0E-9EEE-7FB9-C5F600323428</string>

 

From my past experience I wasn't able to get Chameleon to properly utilize the SystemId string. Ill give it another shot tomorrow to verify. Thanks for the replies, guys

From my personal experience, either value is fine to the Systemid as long as it's the same all the time.

Well, odd thing happened. It didn't create the UUID I wanted it to create with "SystemId" string. I'm not too worried about that, it at least allowed me to login to Messages and fixed the original conflict.

 

FTW. Thanks fellas

Yep, that's exactly what happened to me too. But as you keep this id unchanged, no matter which hack you're running as long as this systemid is the same, the HardwareUUID would be the same. :D chameleon may have other methods to create HardwareUUID while clover will make your HardwareUUID be the exact one you set in Systemid :D

That's all my personal experience. Hope it helps.

Just wanted to say that creating a UUID via uuidgen as described in the linked thread and putting it into org.chameleon.Boot.plist as the SystemID string solved this problem for me on 10.9.1, Chameleon 2.2 r2281.

      Clover r4961 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4961 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4961-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.

      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!

      Hello. My hardware is:
      AMD Athlon X2 7750 dual-core
      Gigabyte NVIDIA 8400GS 512MB ( [VGA] ,HDMI,DVI)
      Motherboard Gigabyte based on NFORCE without AHCI support (only IDE)
      I have successfully installed Mac OS Yosemite, Mavericks and El Capitan with AppleNFORCEATA.kext
      But I can't use it with Mac OS 10.8, don't know why, it just gives error and my internal HDD's are not appearing in Disk Utility.

      Hey guys, how are you?
       
      @MaLd0n and I was doing some tests with iMessage.
      And for most impossible that it seems, now we can use it without worries with MLB, ROM and specific SN. Look...
      MaLd0n 2018-10-26 às 12.15.59.mov
       
      But who can made this possible?
      Clover VirtualSMC Apple??
