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

    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!

    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?

    They do seem to be having problems at the moment - I just tried and it never ends.

    The everymac site appears to be back to normal now.

    Yes agreed, appears to be working now.

    What does it mean if iMessageDebug produces a null value in the BoardSerialNumber field, even though it is set in the SMBIOS and can be seen in the Clover Configurator, and the everymac site confirms that you have a valid S/N ?

    It may be that your motherboard lacks native NVRAM support and you should emulate it - See the guide for details.

    When I created this guide all that I really did was document the process that I always use to set up my Hacks.
    It works for me (and many others too), if it doesn't work for you I cannot help you any further because your problem is outside the bounds of my experience.

    MacPro trash can definitions are a no go... they use Xeon CPU's with an extra layer of security. I been trying to use that model forever and get no success. Perhaps you should mention that in the guide
