So sad though I follow the guide, but can't get iMessage to work.
Hey! And thanks a lot for making these very clear instructions! Despite the awesomeness I have two questions regarding them:
Does this mean that you need to have a connection to the internet or is ethernet connection to LAN sufficient?
This is really the most important thing i'm wondering about: Does the network connection initially used to setup iMessage need to be the above mentioned ethernet connection (built-in en0) or can i use another connection to set it up (wifi card or usb tethering via horndis)?
Just to explain why i'm asking this is that i've just installed Sierra on an HP Elite 8300 desktop and followed your instructions making sure the ethernet connection is detected as en0 built-in. Now, i've done all this with the ethernet cable connected to a lan router (to get the required ethernet connection), but i don't have an ethernet connection to the internet and i'm going to get a wifi card to connect to the interwebz.
I suspect many people nowadays are in a similar situation in not having an ethernet connection to the internet and for that reason i think this clarification would be beneficial for the instructions!

That's correct, many things have changed since the guide was written more than three years ago but a few moments with Google would provide you with the answer :There no longer appears to be a log out of iCloud option
Click on > System Preferences. Click on Apple ID ( iCloud icon as an option is no longer available in macOS Catalina) Click on Overview on the left panel. Click on 'Signout' at the bottom to log out of your Apple ID and iCloud.
