Sorry to bother but how do I know if I have native nvram?

Does it mean that if I don't have I have to use EMUvariable instead of AptioMemoryFix

You can use AptioMemory and Emu however if you have native nvram Emu will be needed.

To Test

Use AptioMemoryFix or OsxAptio (your choice) run the following below, if after reboot TestVar does not show, then you will need EmuVariable

type in the follow in terminal

Code:
sudo nvram TestVar=HelloWorld
then reboot and run

Code:
sudo nvram -p | grep 'TestVar'

Looks like it works now, thanks. How did you get iMessage to work after this? Does this also mean I did the RC scripts thing correctly?
