I used @frankenstein efi floder. I changed smbios following tutorials online. config.plist is set to imac 14,2. I checked the serial on "every mac" and "checkmycoverage" as instructed by the tutorials. Ethernet is en0. The message I am getting is "cant connect to imessage on this mac at this time". What am I doing wrong? clover folder attached

How old is your Apple-ID? Many people report that a newly registered Apple-ID is not working for iMessage and FaceTime.

Fairly new. Although I did try with my kids apple ID. That one is a little older. I can try my apple ID on a real Mac I guess and see what happens

Hi, thanks so much for your help. I tried both of those configs and I am still getting the same message. i  am a noob when it comes to hackintosh. I noticed that the serial number and the board serial number are different in the configs you posted. should they be the same? (aside from the last five digits)

No, of course, the serial numbers should not be identical.


Coming back to your Clover setup, there is only a very small set of kexts in E/C/k/O. But your Clover config shows being set for kexts injection. Since I saw no FakeSMC or VirtualSMC kexts in your Clover folder, I must assume either of those are installed and cached from /L/E (or /S/L/E). That is perfectly Ok but, then, Clover kext injection will not work. What's important to establish here is whether you have your LAN interface running and set as 1st interface en0.


Post your debug file and we'll know more on this matter.

Ok, so your kexts are in /L/E, including IntelMausiEthernet for your LAN card. All that's left to check now is whether that got installed as 1st interface en0 or not. It's mandatory. In case it were not, remove all interfaces from your Network PrefPane and reboot. Hopefully, the interfaces will re-install automatically at reboot, starting with LAN; if they do not, simply add them manually, starting with the LAN card.
