Lion 10.7.2 was running Chameleon 1618 and upgraded to 1684, but still no dice. iTunes crashes instantly with Genius enabled.

Also tried changing the serial number in /Extra/smbios.plist, no change.

Yep, I had crashes with Genius but could run iTunes with it disabled. Now I can't get iTunes Match running on 10.6.7. Any ideas?

well so much for that theory... thanks for trying it. i hate messing with my hack when it's been so stable for years.

it sounds like this is a pretty common problem. maybe it will attract the attention of one of the hackintosh elite and it will get fixed...

Just wanted to say I disabled Genius on 10.5.1 Itunes and it worked for me. Really appreciate the heads up! Im also on 10.6.8

This solved the problem for me! Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and iTunes 10.5.1
I like Genius and iTunes was a bit boring without it! :D

I've figured it out! This is the same issue as the App Store not being able to verify the computer. Just add this to solve the problem. :D

That's not it either, at least not in Lion. I'm using that option.

Ok so i had the same issue, and i had recently updated multibeast, but prior to that Genius and iTunes match had worked fine afterwards i had the same issues, looked through everything and noticed this morning that the hex in my org.chameleon.boot.plist wasnt correct before the update i had added hex for my network card as soon as this was added back Genius and Match worked perfectly again.

Hope this helps someone out.

Can you elaborate on this? Are you referring to the MAC address of your NIC? Can you paste an example of the key/value you're talking about? Thanks.

I'v tried editing my org.chameleon.Boot.plist that didn't work. iTunes works from the start BUT Genius and Match. Also my app store also works with no issues :\
