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:

Well i just did a fresh install of 10.14.0 on my laptop using my old EFI folder with custom rom and mlb and after the initial sign on process iMessage was already signed in and working.

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.

      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.
       
      Installation
      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.

      Hi,
      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?

      I'm currently running MacOS Catalina 10.15.2
       
      Here's what i need help with: 
       
      1. Wifi (which previously worked on Mojave)  
      2. iMessage 
      3. FaceTime 
      4. AirDrop 
       
      Note: I can't do DSDT patching, tried it many times, and i failed. That's just beyond my capabilities. 
      I really hope someone can help me, i've been busting my head for days.  
       
      If possible, i would like to avoid bricking my os, because i need it for my job on the day after tomorrow.

      Hello InsanelyMac users,
       
      I'm constantly getting into troubles with iMessage & FaceTime on my Hackintosh.
      When I'm trying to activate iMessage on my hackintosh I'm getting message to contact apple with a customer code.
      Registration failed for <private> (Error: 31) My build is based on Lenovo ThinkCentre M83 MT which specifications is:
       
      CPU: Intel Core i7-4770
      MB: Lenovo SHARKBAY (Intel Q85)
      AD: Realtek 662v2
      LAN: Intel I217-LM
      BL: Clover 5070
      Native NVRAM
       
      My SMBIOS seems be properly generated for iMac14,2
      I've used macserial to generate serial numbers and MLB.
       
      For RTVariables I've use MacAddr0 of my LAN Card.
       
       
      Maybe someone else haves idea which thing can cause these errors?

      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!
       
      Installus.
