200 series boards like my GA-H270 Gaming 3 also require the EmuVariableUefi-64 to generate valid ROM and BoardSerialNumber lines in iMessageDebug and then successfully sign in.

edit having a security issue, going through password reset procedure :-S

P1LGR1M rocks! The guide simply worked (although I never switched off the network).

Obviously you did not follow the guide or you would have seen that it says (twice) :

I follow this tutorial to setup the iMessage, but when I login iCloud Apple blocked my account. Why?

Hey! Thanks for this man. Everything went so smoothly for me. The default serial number in the config is working correctly for me. I followed your instructions except for "disconnecting the network" :D

I have now a working iMessage and Facetime :) thanks!

Copy the Serial Number and check it on http://www.everymac.com/ultimate-mac-lookup/

Is this still working?

I am on my FirstHackZ68, I have iMessage working, has been since I found this guide over a year ago, and if I put this machines S/N into the URL above, I just keep getting the "I'm not a robot reCAPCHA" repeated time after time. No confirmation of the S/N

I got here because I'm trying to follow the guide on my BetterHackZ77 and I can't get the URL to confirm a valid S/N. So I thought I would try it on my working iMessage hack, FirstHackZ68, and it fails with that S/N too. iMessageDebug passes on FirstHackZ68 as well as iMessage itself.

What's going on?
