Again no disrespect, since you've been at this a long time. I agree iMessage is a multi tier process. We are here to discuss our findings, and not disrespect? or ridicule? others for no apparent reason. Most of your response has nothing really to do with, what we are saying. You obviously didn't take the time to read anything we've actually said. I said nothing about iMessage fix, not working, or claiming Apple insider security( thanks i'm flattered) We stated, obvious speculation, not fud, nor anything about getting my ethernet card to en0 .. I actually can log into the App store. We ,meaning me, and 3 others who have posted this same message...
Apple's self solve site :
No longer shows the message
We're sorry, the number you have provided cannot be found in our records. Please verify the number and try again
Instead, it just shows:
This Serial Number is not valid
I know at-least two of us here have tried combined 600 times.
Never once.. Using Clover serials did it ever show..We're sorry, the number you have provided cannot be found in our records. Please verify the number and try again
If I may offer a little insight - If you have not done these steps already, one should always try and match the specs of their hack as close as possible to the specs of a real mac. At every change of values i.e. mac S/N, ROM, MLB or any injected values in all failed iMsg/F-Time attempt, before changing the values, you should log out the p/c from all Apple services, i.e. iCloud App Store etc etc this can also have an adverse effect on a successful setup. There is a useful web site (EveryMac.com) where you can put in your Mac s/n and it will return the Model your hack is closest to. Another idea, run DarwinDumper or iMessageDeBugger make a print out of the results, do at least three reboots and each time run run iMsg DeBugger and cross reference the results with the initial one - note there should be no discrepancies or any appendges added to the end of the MLB value such as + or - =.
Yes. How i found that out was i kept the same values and just replaced the MLB with a genuine MLB from a broken logic board which sorted the iMessage problem out.
Just for the record.. I got everything working!!!
No change in serial.. or any other parts. I Just reran uuidgen like 10 times/ copied the last one into my smuuid, and made the rom from last part of it.
Changed my MLB like we discussed earlier.. You were 100% correct in your MLB theory. Put it in.. Saved Plist in clover.. and then
I deleted everything from.. (below) logged out of of iCloud .. Rebooted and, bada bing, bada bang!!, bob's your uncle.. everything works

I know I've posted this tip in the past but this info will prove invaluable in cases of reinstallation or spec upgrades. Once you've successfully got iMsg/F-Time, Continuity etc working as they should, run DarwinDumper or iMessageDeBugger and make a note or print out a hard copy of the values generated.Yep. Having a valid MLB makes a a difference .
I have tried a lot of ROM/MLB configurations on my Hackintosh PC and Laptop but nothing seems to make the iMessage work. I chose the appropriate system definition from Clover configurator, then enter my physical MAC address in the ROM field and generated an MLB number using SimpleMLB. All the combinations only give me the "contact apple support" error with an error code. I did call apple support too and they couldn't fix it either. I have just given up on using FaceTime and iMessage
