Hello Everyone,
I have a MacBook 1, 1 a which can only run Snow Leopard. I wanted to extract the MLB value from it so I can activate iMessage on my hackintosh permanently. DarwinDumper only shows '1' for Board Serial Number. I do not want to call up Apple to register by MLB value

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

could you run the imessage debug thingy from here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/an-idiots-guide-to-imessage.196827/ ? maybe that would work?

Hey feartech,
Imessagedebug uses values stored in the nvram. This only happens in Lion and above. So, it gives me an error
ah, i see, sorry didnt know :)
