How to fix iCloud, iMessage, Facetime on your Hackintosh

In order for these services (hackintosh imessage, hackintosh icloud, hackintosh facetime) to work, you need to do the following things:

1. Working NVRAM

For Chameleon: You need FileNVRAM.dylib installed in /Extra/modules. Download it here. Note that there are 2 versions: 1.1.2 and 1.1.3, you should try both.

For Clover UEFI: To check for NVRAM http://www.insanelym…-2#entry2029552

2. Set your Ethernet to en0

You need an ethernet device that is recognized by OS X and set it to en0. Use DPCI Manager to check it ( inside Hackintosh Vietnam Tool )

hackintosh imessage

By default all network devices ( such as ethernet, wireless, smartphone’s Hotspot ), will be set to en0, en1, en2, … by which device is recognized first. You need to reset the network configuration in order to set ethernet to en0:

Go to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ and delete these files/folders:

  • CaptiveNetworkSupport
  • NetworkInterfaces.plist

Go to System Preferences > Network, select all available connections and hit the Minus button to delete them, then hit Apply. Reboot

Go to Sstem Preferences > Network, hit the Plus button to add the devices back, but be sure to add Ethernet first

Open DPCI Manager to check if the Ethernet is set to en0

Note that is you are using Macbook Air SMBios, setting Wireless card to en0 will work just like setting Ethernet to en0
