    Ethernet only Imessage?

    @jaymonkey Appreciate the input. I can continue the tshooting :) I did follow the guides(including the eth0 piece) and I am probably missing something. I will start from scratch and see how it goes. The only part that I might have done wrong was to do all the steps in one shot without...

    @esafeddie I always wanted to try OpenCore and with the new 10.15.3 update I bit the bullet and did a fresh reinstall. I can afford to bork it because I have a spare machine. It works now flawlessly with SMS and all.
