I've succesfully updated to 10.10.4 and latest iTunes.
Apple Music streaming trial works.

Only thing not playing is Beats 1 Radio.
It's working fine on my MacBook Air, just not on my desktop.

Can anyone confirm that Beats 1 is working on their hackingtosh?

Thx

There is similar thread going about this with no solutions yet. In that thread we are getting a total system freeze when clicking on Beats 1 Radio. All other streaming works fine.

There is also a thread going on the Reddit Hackintosh page. Some people report they can play Beats 1 while others are getting system crashes with both Multibeast and Clover.

I really hope someone can help with a solution. I can say that the Apple Music 256Kbps AAC files sound so much better than Spotify's 320Kbps Mp3's. I would like to explore some new music with Beats 1 with same audio quality.

Well darn. There are quite a few folks out there where it either crashes their system or just won't play, Even a few on the official Apple forums where it won't play for them either. I wonder what makes the Beats 1 station different from all the others?

I'm a bit bummed.

I'm on clover, that alone doesn't fix this...
Tony reported on his MultiBeast setup its working fine, so I just chimed in on my Clover setup, its also working fine. One thing Ive noticed, we are all on a Z87 Chip M/B so if it not working on your rig, the problem is else where.
