Hello Everyone,

I installed Yosemite Zone Niresh Distro Yesterday. Sine then I am trying to figure out iCloud Fix.

Here is what I tried till.

Reinstalled OS like 20 times.
EFIstudio Method. (This method is to make Ethernet as en0 I already got en0 in System Config.)
IMessage Fix V2 (Nireh Hack).
Changed SMBIOS to everything.

But non of them worked.

I'll wait for some one to release a Simple FIX 


Good luck with that. There will never be a "Simple FIX" as this is not a simple issue. If you are unable or unwilling to put in the requisite effort, you will not have iMessage/Facetime.

NO REASON TO SHOUT in the topic description. You also forgot to use "!!!!!!11111".


But seriously, this has been discussed a lot of times here and there are several detailed how-tos around. You will have to invest some time but then it will work again.

Absolutely! Read and implement this elaborate iCloud/iMessage guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/303073-pattern-of-mlb-main-logic-board/ How else could anyone help you?

Oh thank You that was very helpful Now i just have to find Einstein so he can help me play with numbers and logic :hysterical:  :)  :thumbsup_anim: 


I dont think there is any way then just trying to restart the machine again and again with random serial numbers.

I will still keep this thread open so someone can up with an solution  :blush:  Or maybe like after 10 years later I found the solution myself will post it here :angel:  :wink_anim:

The appropriate and successful solution already exists. If you are unable or unwilling to implement it, it is no one's fault but your own. Hackintoshing does require some degree of effort and understanding and the aforementioned iMessage guide is actually very simple and straightforward but does require some effort and time in order to comprehend it and implement it in your specific system. How else would you expect anyone to help you?

Bottom line, no one will do your work for you. If you want a fool proof operating system, go back to Windows or get a real mac.

      I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
      What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?
      CPU: AMD Ryzen 2700X
      MB: Gigabyte Aorus X470 Ultra Gaming
      Memory: 4x8 GB HyperX Predator, 3000 MHz Cl15
      Storage: Samsung Evo 970 Nvme 512 GB, Crucial MX500 500GB SATA
      GPU: MSI Radeon RX580 GamingX 8GB

      I have almost succesfully converted from Clover to OpenCore 0.5.4 following this Vanilla Guide by khronokernel
      Just an issue with the ethernet intelmausiethernet.kext injecting...
      SOLVED - the sample plist default kernel entry for Ethernet BOOLEAN is NO.  I changed to the kext name correctly, but oversaw to make the simple change to YES!
      OC 0.5.4
      OSX 10.15.2
      ASUS Rog Maximus X Code Bios v2203 (uses Intel® I219V)
      i7 8700k w/ AMD RX 580 Sapphire Nitro+ SE
      The latest kext is in my EFI/OC/Kexts folder with the other latest kexts that have loaded properly.  It seems to be entered correctly in the config.plist like the other latest kexts.  But the service is inactive and there is no Ethernet connection.  Airport works fine.
      I ran kextstat in terminal and could confirm that the kext was not loaded. Nor did en0 report anything with IoRegistryExplorer
      The only way I was able to get ethernet to work was by manually installing the kext into the L/E/ folder via ##### and after reboot.
      I can confirm ethernet is now working and reports as loaded with kextstat, and the device populates in IoRegistryExplorer.
      I know ##### sn't the proper way to install kexts so reaching out for some advice if I've done anything wrong with my config.plist
      Possibly an issue with OC version 0.5.4? I know everything is still BETA.
      Attached is my EFI folder with serial removed

      Clover r5101 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r5101 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.5k-5101-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 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?
