- Yosemite on Clover
- Gefore 770
- Classic Mac
- Mobile Phone
I just built a customac and I wanted to get imessenge to work on yosemite. I know I need to use NVfile patched version and I have the commands to apply the mlb and rom but I don't know If I should use the codes from our office imac (no one uses imessege, facetime, icloud on it so I don't care If it doesnt work on it) or how I'm supposed to generate one by myself?
What bootloader are you using? As the guide says, they highly advise you don't use cloned IDs. I am on Clover, iMac14,2 SMBIOS, and Yosemite 10.10.1 with iMessage now working (even handoff even though I don't have bluetooth! I can send/receive SMS texts). I just built this computer in December and never had working iMessage, so my MLB and ROM values are new and not from another Mac.
All I did was follow this guide very carefully. It seems like a lot, and it is, but it's important to find the information relative to your build/bootloader. You learn a lot with some patience... I had to take a break after I got Yosemite finally working on my hackintosh before I even dove into trying to get iMessage working. I followed step 1 5d like the Feb 15th update says to follow. I am using a 12 character serial and 17 character MLB value. For my MLB value in both RT Variables and SMBIOS (Board Serial Number) I just used my serial number and added characters until it added up to 17. I also ran the UUIDGEN Terminal command generator a few times to generate a unique SmUUID. As far as my ROM value in RT Variables, I just used what iMessage debug spat out (since I installed clover correctly, it generated this automatically). NONE of my values are cloned. I did find that the Board Serial Number in SMBIOS and the MLB value field in Rt Variables had to match for it to start working.
