https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/an-idiots-guide-to-imessage.196827/ Follow this guide and if you have Nvram working then it should just work. Are the results from iMessage debug the same after a reboot? Are you using Aptiomemoryfix-64? what about EmuVariableUefi-64?
thanks you. I am using aptiomemoryfix and not emuvariableuefi-64. my nvram is working fine as expected..
i'm kinda of worried that my config is off.. there's a whole bunch of fixes and other dsdt patches that clover checked/patched by default. not sure if it's related..

i tried the link above many many times with no success..

@webximize, please update your profile (account details) with your Motherboard, CPU and iGPU or Graphics Card(s).
If you have a prebuilt computer enter make and model instead of motherboard.

Hi there, as @BreBo says, please update your profile so we can see what is inside your machine :thumbup:. I did a quick check and I'm guessing it's an 4th gen i5/i7 with 16GB RAM (?)

For me there is too much going on in that config.plist to spot an error, especially as it is a pre-built Dell and might need all of it, however the SMBIOS looks good except you could try ticking this box :

392782


There might be no difference but worth checking.

This type of problem usually arises due to Apple's servers not 'trusting' the Mac to be a genuine one. That's why the SMBIOS is important and why the UUIDs and serials need to be unique. You can check online to make sure the serial number isn't being used elsewhere (see the iMessage guides here in the General section).

One other thing you could try is to delete the imessage encryption keys and imessage signing keys from your login keychain in addition to that idiots guide that was posted previosuly.

My imessage didn't work for months. One day I was cleaning up my keychain and I remember deleting those keys. A month or so later I tried my imessage and it worked.

Try this config. You were setting the ROM and MLB when you don't need to.
