Recommended Posts

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...:frantics:

 

But who can made this possible?

  • Clover
  • VirtualSMC
  • Apple??

I'm using FakeSMC.kext and I just updated the config.plist with the latest clover configurator and the Apple ID that I haven't been able to activate since now works just fine! :D

Thanks for the update :yes:

Here too the same thing, just added the "EFI Version" key in the SMBIOS section, restarted and tried the iMessage and activated, until FaceTime also activated

 

I use FakeSMC

I have never ever ever ever had iMessage working on either of my hacks and yesterday for poops and giggles i tried signing into iMessage on my laptop and it worked!

Today, the same thing with my desktop.

Well done to whomever is responsible.

Well I'm happy for all of you that finally have iMessage working, but I still didn't understand what we need to do, to make it work...

My real test will be a fresh install, I’m guessing it should be fine with native nvram and as long as I use the same serial, rom, mlb.

You can use a different serial and let Clover Configurator auto generate your ROM and MLB by using these setting example:

I’m in the process of reinstalling 10.14.1 on my desktop rig onto a new drive (Samsung 970 EVO), the installation goes through fine, I copy and paste my EFI folder from the USB stick onto the the new hard drive after mounting the partition then reboot, I then proceed to sign into iMessage and I now get authentication failed. My previous install works fine and so does iMessage. Any tips?

 

Currently I am using carbon copy cloner to clone my install over, I’ll then proceed to copy over the EFI partition and reboot to new drive and see if that helps but has anyone got any tips or advice on how to retain iMessage?

 

Edit

Ok so cloning my current install over and copying the EFI folder directly to new drive seems to have worked, now I’ll pull the old drive and see how I go.

 

Edit 2

So far so good with old drive removed.

iMessage was working perfectly until yesterday, I booted and couldn’t log in. I have all smbios and rtvariables set correctly or it wouldn’t have been working the day before. It just stopped working yesterday, I haven’t tried today but I will later on.

      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!

      Clover r4914 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_r4914 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4914-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.

      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. If you are having activation issues with iMessage, this application is not the answer but if you already activated iMessage on your Mac or Hack and the Messages is acting up you can use this app to fix it.
       
      Your iMessage history will be erased and you might need to sing back in in iMessage and FaceTime.
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      This is a quick guide on how to fix iMessage/Messages and FaceTime:
      There are other issues that can result in imessage/Messages and FaceTime not working properly like using a blacklisted Serial Number or MLB or SmUUID or simply an unactivated AppleID. If that's the case you need to use Clover Configurator 5.2.0.1 (or newer version) to rebuild your SMBIOS data with the most updated details like shown in the picture below:
       

       
      All you have to do is to select the SMBIOS section and then form the SMBIOS selector choose the most compatible SMBIOS with your hardware:
       

       
      Then you need to select the RtVariable section to generate the MLB based on your SMBIOS data and then just click the Generate button next to ROM to automatically generate the MLB and ROM ID based on your SMBIOS and then copy/paste the MLB from the newly generated info into the MLB box next to the ROM filed. Save your new config.plist
       

       
      Once you did the steps above and save the config, close Clover Configurator and the run the iMessage Fixer app and then reboot the computer, once macOS is loaded, login into iMessage or Messages using your AppleID and hopefully you can activate your iMessage and FaceTime.

      Important Note:
      If you already signed in AppStore or iCloud using your current config.plist you might need to remove that device from iCloud in order to prevent the Account Lock Up by Apple because once you change the Serial Number, MLB and SmUUID Apple's server will lock your account in order to protect your data and you need to rest the password for your AppleID.

      I hope you find this helpful.
      Cheers
