Are imessage and icloud working?

Recommended Posts

yes it works, but with a fix that should have been included in your installation, incase this has not installed than you can find the fix in another post here in this forum, but you need to find out where to put the files that correct or enable Appstore, iMessages. 


You also need to have a valid serial number of the "fake" mac/hackintosh.

I have now 10.10.1, appstore is working, i also installed all the fixess for that ) for example ethernet builtin, nvram, rename ethernet to en0..) Can I get somewhere valid serial number if I dont have original mac? 

When I had maverick, it was working. 

EDIT - oh, so I can just copz that from any mac serial on internet. I will try


EDIT2 - No. It's not working. I used valid serial from another mac pro, but it's not working. Can you help me somehow?

Edit, since the Appstore, iMessage is not working even using the Smbios.plist from the old installation, then the "Fix" is not fully applied or something else is wrong. If yo have downloaded the "fix files" (a link is in other thread here in this site) then you just copy the files to the following directories you will see which files go in each directory. 


The directories are /System/LibraryFrameworks and /System/Library/StagedFrameworks/Safari.


It is easy to get a valid serial number for the hackintosh pc, if you had a Smbios.plist in the old installation from Maverics, then you could have used that one, but if you don't have that one, then you can generate a new one with valid serial number with for instance the "Chameleon vizard" with Chameleon Vizard you can choose what mac computer your hackintosh should imply it is, "most often" it is best to chose mac model similar in specs to your hackintosh but the Mac Pro definition in Smbios.plist (Smbios.plist is in directory /Extra) most often works for most desktop systems but in some cases iMac definition gives somewhat better performance, and for laptops choose similar specced Macbook (Air,Pro) and for desktop using only graphics in the CPU then Mac Mini is most often similar, but this is a trial and error testing to find out what is best for each system.

Thanks for fast reply. I tried both of them. I tried adding verified serial and random serial from chameleon wizzard. (I tried macpro 3,1 and iMac) But still nothing. No, I don´t have smbios from the old instalation.

BTW, I know, that I have to choose similiar system as macpro 3,1 or something like that. but I have AMD. So what do you prefer?

Hello SanduQi.

You should have a sound system, at least you have the serial OK. But as you know the serial is not all it takes to get the Appstore and the other Apple connections working.

The net fix worked for me, i.e. I had to place the files in their correct places my self (replace the originals) I downloaded the files from another thread in this web site and after that (note I had upgraded to 10.10.1 from Apple).


There might be one another possibility, although I am not sure but that is to place the file FileNVRAM.dylib in /Extra/modules, you should be able to google and download this file and try it out. In previous versions of OS X this worked to enable iMessages.

    • Hello. I just installed hackintosh high sierra on my PC. It's version is 10.13 so is there any way I can update to 10.13.3? And also my hackintosh freezes when opening few applications like logic pro x. Please help me.
    • Same problem here. Did you solve this?
    • I was having an issue with installing High Sierra because I was getting this error OsxAptioFix2Drv: starting overrides for /System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
      using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no I tried all the fixes that everyone was telling me about replacing the file with a different one but nothing worked. Finally I came across a post from some person who had a laptop that was designed like mine. I have the Aspire A515-51. The weird thing is that it has 8gb of ram installed. There is 4gb that is soldered to the motherboard and one 4gb ram in the only ram slot. Well this person stated that if he removed the 4gb ram that was installed in the ram slot the install would move past the error and install. I tried it and WOW it worked. I was able to complete the install and everything worked just fine but the wifi. So I hope this helps someone, but I am also hoping that someone can help me with the issue of the ram. I can't add the ram back into the ram slot or the boot will stall at  OsxAptioFix2Drv: starting overrides for /System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
      using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no
    • Im stuck in this screen, i can boot the clover bootloader but i cant select the high sierra option because it doesn't appear. Laptop MSI PL 62 Specs: i7 7700 HQ Nvidia MX 150 1 tb hardrive
