    Somehow this guide doesn't work for me. Im not signed in to anything on the system. Following the setup and do everything thats written, except of shaking the two buttons since they don't exist for me. But the generating serial is there which I did. My ethernet is right too. I followed everything but at the end I can't make it work. I can sign in to iMessage but when I check the settings it says inactive and when I try to sign in from there it tells me, its not possible. I even created a new Account and its the same.

    As a point of reference, I followed this guide to get iMessage up and running on my Skylake hack that runs High Sierra today. Working with a system id of iMac14,2.

    It seems that if you follow each of the steps carefully that the process will be successful. Note that for the ROM and MLB parameters I used the following:

    ROM - MAC address for one of my ethernet adapters
    MLB - OSX serial number with 5 random Hex digits added to the end.

    Great guide - thanks to everyone that contributed to documenting the process.
