iMessage / App Store and iCloud

39 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've managed to install OS X 10.9 on my Hackint0sh.

 

However, even with iCloud fix (dev-properties + FileNVRam.dylib), iCloud, iMessage and App Store don't want to log me into my Apple ID.

 

Has anyone got it working?

 

Thanks,

xmath279

 

Edit: Fixed: Forgot to add my smbios.plist on first boot up and the network interface had been initially created as en1.

Use EFI Injections.

 

Download EFI Studio, get an Ethernet string, put it in Charmelon and delete ur NetworkInterface.plist in Library/Preferences/something and reboot ur machine.

 

Instructions can be found online, just google "iCloud fix with EFI Studio"

Same issue on my GA-Z68AP-D3. Just use an iMac SMBios.plist instead of the orginal Mac Pro one.

same issue here, tried to put this on org.chameleon.Boot.plist

 

<key>device-properties</key>

<string>4b00000001000000010000003f0000000100000002010c00d041030a0000000001010600011c0101060000007fff0400160000006200750069006c0074002d0069006e0000000500000001</string>

Just do this:

1. Add this to your org.chameleon.Boot.plist:

 

<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>

<string>Yes</string>

 

2. Remove all Network interfaces

3. Remove /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist

4. Reboot

5. Readd your Ethernet Network Interface. This must be en0. (not en1, en2...)

step 2,3,4 and 5 resolved the issue thanks.

Just to expand on what was said above: The trick is to ensure your on-board Ethernet is en0 - that means if you have a Wi-Fi adaptor, you'll need to disconnect it, install the Ethernet kexts, and then reboot so only the Ethernet adaptor is recognised. Once you've got Ethernet as en0 (check in Network in System Profiler), shut down, reconnect your wi-fi card, and start up again. If you have a properly configured smbios.plist, you should now be able to sign into iCloud.

I think iMessage is just a bit buggy at the time... This problem is not network related.

On my setup:

Wifi=en0, BlueTooth PAN=en1, Ethernet=en2

my MBL (processor serial number) is 18 (supposed to be 17 or iMessages won't work)

Can login/logout and iMessages/Facetime still work.

As Ripley once said "Believe It Or Not"

I do not think it has something to do with the serialnumber whether that is now 17 or 18 characters long.

with ML 10.8.4 I have the same nvram.plist and it goes perfectly with it.

 

i think is another Problem....

I also had the problem initially with BT PAN= en0, wifi=en1 and ethernet=en2. Then I removed the plists and the network interfaces, rebooted and... the order is still messed up like before. But it works now, so I guess the order isn't that important.

Here it worked pretty OOB. In fact, easier to setup than ever before.

 

All the best!

Same here - the only quibble was adding my Ethernet kext. (The reason why it was a mere quibble?  Drag - drop - authenticate.)

I've even gotten partial acceleration (CI/QE) in both ML and Mavericks DP1 (had to use modified kexts - fortunately, it was the SAME kexts).  I used Kext Wizard this time (due to the sheer number of kexts that had to be installed - five); again, it worked in both ML and Mavericks.

 

UNfortunately, my thinking was dead on - due to changes (at the very least in ML) going forward, my Hackie Cheapie HD5450 will have to be retired.

I ONLY had to do steps:

2,3,4

 

Once I removed 'NetworkInterfaces.plist'... I simply restarted my MBP and iMessage worked.

Mac Appstore

I get the following error when accessing and attempting to retrieve app downloads from the App Store.  This is not so updating system-wide updates.  I am not sure if it has to do with the fact that I downgraded iTunes; for I can’t isolate the case.
 
I will greatly appreciate some assistance.  A few of my troubleshooting attempts was clearing the cookies, resetting the application (via the debug menu) located under the sub-menu and deleting the ‘com.apple.appstore’ folder in the associated directory.

******** UPDATE:  iTunes was the cause.  I had downgraded to 10.7 from 11 (OS X 10.9's default).

If you have only WiFi and no ethernet so WiFi is always en0, using MBA smbios which has WiFi as en0 and no ethernet port at all, is also an option. You can always copy the CPU performance related info from different mac version over to MBA plist in ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext/resources if needed. I'll admit I have not actually tried with a MBA smbios because I've never had a reason or need to, but in theory it should work fine :)

Just thought I'd share my experiences on this...

 

After upgrading from 10.8 to various DP versions of 10.9, the Messages app was completely non-functional. Despite having network interfaces set up properly, a recovery partition present, NVram and Chameleon set up correctly and a working serial, the app still was totally broken even though it was previously working under 10.8. DP5 for instance presented no password field at logon and a strange and unpredictable UI. DP6 was even worse, just a blank grey window. I've heard of at least a few other people experiencing these problems too in the main 10.9 DP thread.

 

After creating a new user account and opening messages to find it working perfectly, I concluded that it must be a problem with my user account data. So I replaced all the directories or files I could find relating to Messages (also sometimes called iChat) in the Users\Main User Account\Library (hidden) directory and all of it's subdirectories with their counterparts from the same location in the new user's folder.

 

Not sure exactly what files did the trick, but when I returned to the main user account, it worked perfectly.

 

Directories replaced:

 

Users\Main User Account\Library\Containers\com.apple.ichat

Users\Main User Account\Library\IdentityServices

Users\Main User Account\Library\Messages

 

Files replaced:

 

Under Users\Main User Account\Library\Preferences I spotlight searched for any file with "ichat" or "message" in the file name and replaced them. Altogether there were about 20.
