iMessage/Messages Fix-How To

eep357 (or any other Clover user),

 

While I'm planning my Sunday bootloader project, in your experience is it necessary to de-authorize a computer in iTunes before switching over? Will any of the iCloud/iTunes authorizations need to be re-done if I keep the same values I'm using in Chameleon (more or less, I realize the iMessage fix requires an added value) or have you seen this be a sufficient change to require another authorization with Apple?

 

My shuffling with onboard versus PCI ethernet cards last summer left me in a funky state where I have 4 computers and 5 used authorizations and I need to wait a bit still before I can reset them all!

I am unsuccessful with installing clover. I executed the command line and it fails. Can someone post the package to make this a bit simpler? My script error is "line 249: base tools: unbound variable"

iTunes will ask you to re-authorize, and then will say "this computers already been authorized" like it always does as long as your not making major changes. Keep same SMBIOS values and serial, it will be fine.

after the 7 appears, just wait like 2-3 mins, trust me. It's just having a little trouble reading something on there, but will come up eventually.

 

i waited for about 25 min and nothing happens. i can try install in my hdd but, need a fix for the boot1 error.

see here http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=2304&st=80 for Slice's answer to your question, but not asked by you :)

Once a pkg is made, people will download it, and since this is new fix/first revision, they won't get needed updates or improvements if/when released. It really is better to build it, and you'll want the ability so you can update in the future as well. Check line 249 using a text editor (preferably Text Wrangler or similar that has lines numbered). Should have
echob "  Make EDK II Revision $basetools BaseTools"

with the "" being present, fix it if needed. If already correct, try reinstalling xcode command line tools and verify all your file permissions are correct (home's download folder too which is not checked by Disk Utility), unless dmazar has other suggestions

 

I'm no Clover guru and Google knows more than I do :)

thanks, but what i know about boot1 is copy boot1h from the bootloader to a usb, enter the instalation, unmount the osx partition and in the terminal, copy the boot1h to the osx partition from the usb. i did it and remains the boot1 error. i have installed in a mbr scheme.

 

thanks.

Make sure using all (assuming 64bit) files only

 

Clovers "core" center seems to be manipulation of "config.plist".

I've done to config. for basic use.

exactly, it's boot.plist, smbios.plist and just about any other plist you can think of, all rolled up in one big config :)

Works great for getting iMessage working.

 

Now I just need to figure out how to get my ALC892 working again. :hammer:

i am so nowhere near an expert, but wouldnt putting your old DSDT.aml in / fix that?

I'm not an expert either, but I don't believe I was using a DSDT

 

All I had to do was load the kext previously with chameleon

FYI you can instal it and boot it via USB login to iMessage then revert back to chameleon. Incase you don't want to run Clover and keep Chameleon.

or install the kext you were using from /Extra to /System/Library/Extensions, or copy to Clover's kext folder for 10.8, or..other stuff too, probably :)

Tried both, it actually loads the kext successfully but no audio device :wallbash:

 

 

It's very possible that I just have no idea what I'm doing :o

This is what I'm currently doing, but I prefer to get it working so I can install it to the startup disk and use Clover instead of Chameleon.

While I do agree that it's better to build it, I think the way Clover works means that once someone builds it the latest installer gets moved to Sourceforge?

i format the usb in mbr fat32 one partition, do a standard instalation, put the info needed at the end of the config but simply appears that 7 and nothing happens even if i let one hour. cant get rid of the boot1 error if i install in the hdd... so i think im stuck. will have to wait for another fix...

 

i cant even get to the bootloader interface.

I know that this is the iMessage thread but hopefully this will get some eyes on it and help me solve this problem

 

This is on a USB stick not a HDD

 

eep357 has been very helpful in getting a working config.plist going for my setup. The issue now is it seem like clover is not looking to that at all, is there a specific way you have to build the USB stick for it to work?

 

For example when I go into options it doesnt respect any of the parameters that have been set in the config.plist

Thanks for all the hard work and research... it works on my iMac12,1 hack. Will try to switch to clover as the primary bootloader in my free time...

No luck here but it is obviously a clover issue, I am getting kernel panics on start up. Good to know there is a solution to the Message problem though.

Both my Hackintoshes currently have Chameleon 2.1 bootloader and MBR-style partitions. Can I just migrate to Clover without expecting problems or will the MBR partition scheme give issues? I also read that you can boot Clover in EFI mode and in BIOS mode, does this method absolutely require the use of EFI mode?

If you read Clover instructions thread more carefully you may notice that using boot1h2 you have a choice to boot Clover or Chameleon located on the same partition.

I was able to get everything working perfectly, EXCEPT my cinema led out of the displayport. I can plug a different monitor into DVI2 to get two monitors working, but the displayport/cinema led will not work. iMessage really isn't that important compared to getting my main screen back, so:

 

Does anyone have any idea how to remove Clover?!

      Not able to login to imessage/facetime 
      i tried to fix it by following several guide but it didn't worked out.

      It shows an error with a code to contact customer care.

      I am attaching my config file.
      config.plist.zip

      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.
       
      Your iMessage history will be erased and you might need to sing back in in iMessage and FaceTime.

      Clover r4542 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 14 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4542 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4542-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.

      I recently installed High Sierra on my Ryzen system, just to find out how crappy the USB situation really is on AMD systems. The only choice is basically most of your ports flat out not working or GenericUSBXHCI crashing every time you pull out a thumbdrive. So after some trial and error here are my findings.
      The USB ports controlled by the XHCI controller on the SoC worked fine, but the ones attached to the chipset XHCI controller didn't.
      That's when I looked at the log and saw these lines:
      PTXH@00000000: AppleUSBXHCIPCI::createPorts: port 1 unsupported protocol USB 03.10 PTXH@00000000: AppleUSBXHCIPCI::createPorts: failed to allocate port 1 It turns out that for some reason the AppleXHCIPCI driver doesn't support the first two ports on the B350 chipset (made by ASMedia) USB controller. And after the driver fails to allocate port 1 it just stops and doesn't even look at the rest of the ports. So I first tried commenting out the first two ports from the DSDT and that worked and made all the other ports show app in the IOService tree. Than I quickly tested all the USB ports and it turns out that the 2 problematic ports aren't even wired to anything. But instead of editing the DSDT I wanted a cleaner solution, because I don't want to re-edit my DSDT every time I update the BIOS or change some BIOS settings.
       
      So here is my small SSDT that disables the stock PTXH device and adds a new device XHCI, that has all the ports needed for my board (ASUS PRIME B350-PLUS).
      DefinitionBlock ("SSDT-PRIME-B350-PLUS.aml", "SSDT", 1, "APPLE", "tinySSDT", 0x00000006) { External (\_SB_.PCI0.GPP2, DeviceObj) External (\_SB_.PCI0.GPP2.PTXH, DeviceObj) Scope (\_SB_.PCI0.GPP2.PTXH) { Name (_STA, Zero) } Scope (\_SB_.PCI0.GPP2) { Device (XHCI) { Name (_ADR, Zero) Device (RHUB) { Name (_ADR, Zero) // USB3.1 back panel Device (PRT1) { Name (_ADR, 0x5) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, 0x03, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT2) { Name (_ADR, 0x6) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, 0x03, Zero, Zero }) } // USB3.0 front panel Device (PRT3) { Name (_ADR, 0x7) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, 0x03, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT4) { Name (_ADR, 0x8) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, 0x03, Zero, Zero }) } // USB2.0 Device (PRT5) { Name (_ADR, 0x9) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT6) { Name (_ADR, 0xa) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT7) { Name (_ADR, 0xb) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT8) { Name (_ADR, 0xc) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRT9) { Name (_ADR, 0xd) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } Device (PRTA) { Name (_ADR, 0xe) Name (_UPC, Package (0x04) { 0xFF, Zero, Zero, Zero }) } } } } } Please note that this is just an example and it most likely needs to be changed for your board.
