    I agree with obv1, it seems to be just limited to hacks right now. I had to resign in all my devices when i added another email to my apple id and the only device that didn't sign back in was my hack.

Upon trying again, it removes all but one of the email check boxes. When I quit out of Messages, it now says within console Messages: [Warning] "Could not find transfer for guid: XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX twice with two different guids right after the emtpy account query with service: iMessage. I have my account associated to an iPad and iTouch as well.

    Curious if I copy the three chat.db files from a real mac would it work.
    Yea i tried swaping the files from my mothers new mac mini and i got this:

    Did it boot your mom's iMessage out? Any error messages on the mini or within the console when you try to authenticate using the copied files? Funny thing I just noticed... by copying it those three files from my working iMessage hackintosh to the non-working Hack and attempting to sign into imessage killed the working one. VNC'd into that machine and saw that it had an exception and killed the app. Tried to sign back in, but no luck... only have iOS now for iMessage and a huge deal breaker for me. Scrapping together a budget for a real machine.

    For those saying its also affecting legitimate devices... please stop. You are flat out wrong. From the same network, I logged out of iMessage from my Gen 3 iPad and then back in without issue. In combination to the chat.db files above and an iPad not having issues, this is truly a Hackintosh issue only. Even more insulting is I can add email address to iMessage through the iPad and it will let me know I did so on both Hacks.

    Ah no i actually shut off iMessage on that machine when i went to activate on my hack, but when i opened it again after trying to activate on the hack it still worked on the mac mini for me to get to the point of signing out.

    In hindsight, I guess the working iMessage hack should have been powered down during the testing.

Perhaps Apple're locking people out who they think haven't got a genuine, i.e. purchased through the app store version of Mountain Lionů?

    They definitely haven't blacklisted serials, I've tested my serial from my MBP on a VM and it fails. The VM also contains a legitimate version of Mountain Lion, which was indeed purchased through the App Store and installed via the App Store.

    There are indeed issues with iMessage, but that's not what we're facing here as this came into play during server maintenance this month (and don't forget, maintenance could mean that Apple did it deliberately). There has always been issues with iMessage, throughout its existence.

    Since I saw some people ask on the other thread, they haven't blocked IDs since mine is working fine on various other devices. A useful gem for those who use VMs and backups; if you have a backup from before the date the issues began (recognised as the maintenance on the 18th) if you restore to that backup it seems to be that your iMessage will then function again (assuming you were logged in already within your backup/snapshot), meaning that something must've knocked out all hackintoshes connected at that time rather than a permanent check being put in place - which is encouraging because that hints that it was accidental rather than a deliberate attempt from Apple.

    Hanging up the towel. But have in my head that it sums up to be there is new mechanism that takes the mac address, hashes it, than then creates a csr for iMessage based on that hash. Also explains why Xcode cannot open the DB.

    With my Hack connected to Gen 3 iPad, onboard nic deactivated within OS X, deleting the iMessage DB files, , and then rebooting it will hang on logging into iMessage. Reboot again gets the screen shot attached. Right below the last sandboxed line of the screenshot is "Imagent: [Warning] Empty password supplied for account: e: myimessageemail."

    I get the "Messages[367]: [Warning] Empty account query with service: iMessage" warning in the console on my MacBook, but it proceeds to login and work fine...

    Apparently I can't post info about iMessage that links to a site I shall name as SDT, paranoid mods much...

    iMessage Won't Work


    I have a question to pose:
    When I did my first hack, I purchased mountain lion and made the bootable flash drive from that purchased file. Then I built two more hacks and rather than going thru all the steps again to make the bootable ML flash drive I just reused the one I already had - so I didn't actually purchase ML again. I wonder if that has anything to do with iMessage not working - it doesnt on either,of the two last ones The last I checked iMessage was working on the original machine but I'm not around it for the next few days to see if it still is.
    I wonder if the ML install has an ID that recognizes that it's being used again on a different system.
    Are some of the systems you guys are having issues with copies like mine?
