    [GUIDE] How to make iMessage work on Yosemite with Chimera

    This way works; just to put in my two cents so thanks for the info. Wiped hard drive though and now I gotta do it all over again; this time (in case anyone else messes it up like I did), make sure you really nail the config file. At least that's what I think caused me headaches after rebooting...

    GA-Z68XP-UD3 v1.3 UEFI - HD6870 - [SUCCESSFUL INSTALL]

    Re: Guide: GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 with ATI 6870 - Clean Lion Install Ok so in the meantime I re-installed lion and everything and did everything the same, except didn't modify the ati6000 kext. So basically, my machine pretty much runs perfectly; except for the fact I have no graphics support. So I...
