    How to Fix iMessage

    I've had a hackintosh for a couple of years and never got iMessage to work. Just tried tonight and it worked for the first time. I haven't made any changes except for regular MacOS updates and NUC updates from Rehabman. Hey ho lets hope it stays working.

    Jang, stick with it, you'll get there in the end. My first hack took forever, but eventually it all clicks (well enough clicks).

    >jang430 No expert, but one way is to copy efi/clover from USB to efi/clover on HDD

    Me too. Tried various DP cables/adapter+cable, various lengths and careful routing. Personally I don't really like the mini DP connector, the cable connection doesn't feel secure. I also tried reducing the refresh rate with EDID data, seemed to help for a while but the problem returned...

    Update to High Sierra went uneventfully, many thanks again for your great guide. Trying to perform the Supplemental Update and it seems to fail on the download, as far as I can tell the download seems to fail about 2/3rd of the way through and when I next look just shows UPDATE again. Selecting...

    Removed karabiner elements and the problem has gone too.

    My Perixx wireless USB keyboard/mouse (PERIDUO-707) periodically and with increasing frequency stops responding until I pull out/reinsert the nano receiver. Are there any hack issues that might cause this or is it time to buy a new mouse/keyboard combo. I haven't noted any problems when I boot...

    Updated to latest code: Geekbench before: 3817/7361 Geekbench after: 3846/7340 So single core went up a little but multi-core went down a bit Thanks again for all your hard work.

    No, I don't think you'll get that to work. Its a fairly common problem and related to Hotplug not working I believe.

    Is this the NUC LED or display LED? Try pmset -g and see if you have anything preventing sleep for example " sleep 103 (sleep prevented by coreaudiod)" If you do, then try to get rid of them (close any running programs) and retry sleep. There is a DisplaySleep (NUC LED stays...

    Although there must be a bit more to it than just data volume. I tried 45Hz and that was the value that was completely unusable. I eventually tried 48Hz as it's a multiple of 24 which tends to be a good value to try when video is involved.

    Today I removed the override file/rebooted and the blanking/black flash (for 2/3s) returned within 5 mins. So I am confident that creating an override file with EDID data specifying a native resolution of 3840*2160 @ 48Hz is a solid workaround for me. I have gone nearly 3 weeks now with no...

    Regarding the screen blanking issue, it would be interesting to know if the BIOS update has definitely fixed the problem (SC nucs?). If so has the update changed the value for the sa voltage offset setting? This "fix" doesn't appear to be available in non sc nucs as yet. I have tried latest BIOS...

    And the occasional blacking out of the screen - 2/3s? Any ideas would be interesting as I've researched without getting any closer to understanding what is going wrong.

    Updated last night, all went smoothly and I've not come across any new problems. You may want to check you are on a fairly recent version of Clover. Oh non skull canyon nuc, so post might not be so relevant to you.
