Hi guys..

I just succeed login into iMessage after called applesupport.

Now I'm having a trouble, bcause I unable to sent a message. it said "not delivered"

 

here my SS

I'm quite sure, it caused by my network configuration..

while my laptop have no LAN, I'm using NullEthernet by Rehabman.

And for working connection, I use HoRNDIS by Joshua Wise for android USB tether.

The only built in network available is just Mediatek MT7630E WiFi which is absolutely unsupported.

 

iMessage need built in network, so nullethernet at first as en0. But my question is, is there a way to make HoRNDIS as a built in network?

FYI if needed, I'm using MacbookPro SMBIOS as u know, bcause it somewhat dificult to find the right Macbook Air S/N in selfsolve.apple.

 

if it impossible, so does it means, I have to buy a wifi card???

 

in that case, how I can send a message if no wifi available around me, then I have to use HoRNDIS USB tether, which we know impossible to make it as built in network..

 

so what should I do?

Hi,


Thanks for this great clear guide. I followed it, and am almost 100% working.


 


I've setup Yosemite on my Clevo P650SE laptop. I'm using the ethernet interface (Realtek1811 kext).


 


I followed your clear process and am using a real  MLB and ROM. I tested nVram and it seems to be fine.


 


The App store is working, I can sign in, and I can send iMessages.


 


However- none of my contacts or old messages appear.


 


I'm completely new to OSX.


 


Am I doing something wrong?

I've a problem with DarwinDumper. I'm using an old mac mini with 10.6.8 snow leopard.

 

I can extract ROM, but in DMI Tables it give me Serial Number: 1, but it's impossible! 

 

what should I do?

 

I've tried to use the other method also, but I don't get clover bootloader in the boot screen

 

EDIT: My mac is a mac mini 1,1

@chardido,

 

From post#100

 

1.  Boot your Mac in single user verbose mode (Command-S) with a Mavericks or Yosemite Installer USB created with "createinstallmedia" method.  No Clover required for a Mac :).

2.  After the white text has finished scrolling type the following lines (pressing <Enter> after each)

/sbin/fsck -fy
/sbin/mount -uw /
nvram 4D1EDE05-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B38C14:MLB
nvram 4D1EDE05-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B38C14:ROM 

3.  Record the output.  Note the ROM value shown with the NVRAM command can be a mix of HEX and ASCII:

'%xx' values are HEX-Values, the other characters have to be converted from ASCII to HEX to get the right ROM value.

I can't reach clover bootloader. 

When mac starts, I hold ALT and Mac gives me the HDD with Snow Leopard and the usb with Yosemite (but not with clover)..

 

What should I do?

 

EDIT: I've opened my MacMini, following the instruction of ifixit, and I've found the MLB. So, i've followed this guide and now I've imessage working! 

Thank you!

Hi,

 

Can I use Serial/BCM from a pre-imessage Macbook (Core2duo on Snow Leopard)? From what I understand- Snow Leopard doesn't have iMessage- I'm wondering if Apple have a check. Anyone tried?

@mcfee03,

 

Most likely will work if your Macbook can run or is upgradeable to at least Lion (iMessage beta released with Lion). 

 

Eg  MLB & ROM from MacBookPro 2,2 reported working by @Mac Hosehead (there are several other examples of even older Macs in this forum if you search).

 

Take home message is its safe to try it - you have nothing to lose if your Mac is retired from service :).  Just make sure that you don't share your MLB/ROM values publically and only one machine at a time logs in with the cloned values at the same time.

 

Good Luck!

For some reason when I try and log into iMessage it ask me to contact apple. It was all working fine for a while and I have not changed anything apart from the dsdt to fix wake issues.

 

Any idea what it could be and how I could fix it?

 

Thanks

      Clover r4799 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_r4799 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4799-X64 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.

      Apologies for the lack of information (and for posting in the wrong place), but I can't even boot into Clover so screenshots of verbose mode aren't even possible. I've been running the beta of 10.14.2 for sometime (-using this excellent guide 
      ) without any issues. When I tried to apply the new update for 10.14.2, my pc downloaded the update, shutdown but applied some updates then rebooted into a blank screen. I've tried several things since then. Specifically:
       
      * Booting from the installation USB created using the above guide - same blank screen
      * Booting from an external HDD - successful launch of OS. From here I have tried different versions of Clover including the one on my HDD r4644 (all have been unsuccessful). I have also tried different memory management options osxaptiofix (1, 2 & 3)
       
      The only other information I can provide is in the screenshots below (including a brief of my drive configuration)
       
      Please let me know if and how I can get more information to help resolve the issue, or if I have to rebuild from scratch.
       
      Many thanks in advance

      To build a Hackintosh never was easier. If you want cheap Hackintosh and have it quickly and 100% working and without any knowledge how to tweak things, this video is right for you.
