    Update #2: On February 27, 2013, the following Forum Article was published on Troubleshooting iMessage Login Issues.
    Update: On February 19, 2013, the iMessage not working problem has been solved with the latest version of Chimera. See http://www.tonymacx86.com/336-chimera-2-0-now-available-imessage-login-fix.html





    Hi there

    is there anyway to get imessage to work on your hackintosh?
    Just stop working out of the blue, see attach image with error message.

    Tried deleting network.plist and changing my serial with chameleon wizard but no luck

    Many thanks

    Same here. Looks like a lot of CustoMac users are experiencing this problem as of late, and there is no solution thus far.

    iMessage Won't Work

    Mine too stopped working this morning after no issues at all the last 6 months. I woke up to a "iMessage has unexpectedly crashed" and have not been able to sign in since.

    Found this in the logs:

    iMessage Won't Work

    Just in reply to something in the cached thread;

    The certificate isn't anything to do with the problems. How do I know? Because it doesn't exist on a Mac VM I'm using to test this out. I snapshotted back to a working state, and it's stopped working again - the certificate doesn't exist. So unless it's tied in with something else somewhere, or I'm just getting a one-off, you shouldn't focus on that too much.

    EDIT: Removed the link because the OP was updated.

    iMessage Won't Work

    So just to summarize what I can ascertain from the (now deleted) thread:

    * New problem seems to have started around 12/18/2012

    * This is different from the other problems initially reported at the launch of Mountain Lion where there was a community fix that allowed iMessage (AKA Messages App) to run on OSX86 builds

    * Users who setup and logged in prior to 12/18 seem to be unaffected UNLESS they log out of their account in Messages and try to log back in

    * Known solutions for related issues, such as restoring a generic hosts file, deleting/changing Ethernet (en0, en1) addresses, changing serial numbers, messing with hardware UUIDs does not fix the problem

    * Does not appear to be an issue with "real" Mac hardware

    * As of this writing, no known, verified fix has been confirmed

    Am I correct or did I miss anything? (And yes, I'm having the same problem; somewhere around 12/18, I received a notification saying that my account was locked and I needed to change the password; password reset worked and I'm OK on MB Air, iPhone, iPad but not my Hackintosh)
