Hi guys.
The bootloader is Chimera.

I can't figure out how to fix the store... Seems like the bootloader doesn't consider the new strings
Ditch Chimera in favor of Chameleon RC5. I had success with r1083, package version (see my previous post). Don't know how well Chimera handles EFI injection.
Just install over, it will replace your previous BL.

Try what you will and report back.

Re: Sign in app store issues after 10.6.8 update Fix

thanks to this thread, i got app store working again.

the method i used was slightly different.
first i followed " System preferences/Network
You'll want to highlight each one and remove it by clicking the - tab at bottom of box."

then "Then go to,
Library/Preferences/System Configuration
and delete or place on desktop the NetworkInterfaces.plist"

restarted, then added ethernet ONLY. restarted again, and added wifi.
now app store works.

shame facetime still doesnt work though :cry:

Another report of successfully using the Mac App Store in OS X 10.7 (Retail).

The thing that did the trick was injecting the EFI string of the onboard ethernet controller in com.apple.Boot.plist

Used EFI studio 1.1 (http://www.mediafire.com/?xz14ytrmddo) which is fully compatible with Lion, selected "Ethernet device", clicked on "Add Device" and finally asked it to write the string it found to com.apple.boot.plist (located in /L/P/SC). Then I opened the edited file with TextEdit and came across this:

<key>device-properties</key>
<string>xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</string>

(where x is the ethernet device EFI string)
I then carefully copied the above lines, opened the com.apple.Boot.plist (this time located in /E), and pasted the copied content. I also added those 2 lines:

<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>Yes</string>

and then closed all open files.

I also deleted all network connections displayed in System Preferences/Network prefpane and I also trashed NetworkInterfaces.plist (located in /L/P/SC).

Following a reboot, I manually added a new network service using the (+) button in System Preferences/Network, only this time the system auto-named it "Ethernet" (instead of "Ethernet adaptor en0") which implies that the network card/interface is seen as an original built in (original Mac style).

AppStore login worked naturally, giving me download access to all apps.

Special thx/credit to the authors of all those helpful posts that led to this solution.
Thanks for posting the steps you took. It put me on the right path. Before rebooting, in addition to deleting NetworkInterfaces.plist I also deleted preferences.plist from the same location (/L/P/SC). After the reboot "Ethernet" and "FireWire" automatically showed up in System Preferences/Network. Was able to log into the App Store with no problem.

Cheers
