I have a Dell Inspiron 3543, everything is working except iMessage, I have suspected that the NVRAM.plist is the cause but when I go into Clover Configurator and try to store nvram.plist on the EFI or the boot volume, nothing will happen. And If I go back into clover to store nvram.plist its almost like the changes have no effect.

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

Also, see iMessage guide linked from the FAQ.

If NVRAM is not working, it is likely because you need EmuVariableUefi-64.efi (+ RC scripts).
Or AptioMemoryFix.efi intead of OsxAptio*.efi+EmuVariable*.efi.

Ok I have removed OsxAptio and EmuVariable, and installed AptioMemory. I will give it a day or two or should it take effect immediately?
