And, you can use hackintool "look at system" to check whether the iMessage token are correct.
If there are some with only 0000000... than something is missing or wrong.
This makes it easier.

Make also sure, that u have generate a valid MLB/ROM in Platforminfo > DataHub in Opencore

Some guidelines:
  • On Apple’s “Check Coverage” website enter your serial number and see if it is an Invalid Serial. We actually want to use an Invalid Serial, so if the website informs you in red letters that the number is invalid, then you are OKAY to use it.
Check coverage after generating new Serial Number

Awesome! I am going to set-up an Apollo UAD device to my set-up, did you do the Thunderbolt flash to your system or does it work as is?

Hi @CaseySJ , today have received NVMe TB3 enclosure, tested with Samsung 970 EVO Plus. Attached you will find the speed test result.
For comparison I have tested the internal NVMe, also 970 EVO Plus. The speed is half or less..
The enclosure is this Sabrent


EDIT
Just to be clear I only want to know if this speed are OK, or there Is some problem. I have found on YouTube a similar config. The Speed seems coerent, more or less. What do you think?

Yes the speeds appear to be correct. You are getting a Read speed of 1450 MB/s which is very close to the maximum rated speed of 1600 MB/s:

Then the only issues remain the ThunderboltIP bridge speed.. next week I'll make other test with new cable and a MacBook Pro 2020. I'll update you when I have news. For now, thank you. I mentioned you in my repo. :D

TB3 bridge transfer should be capped at about 1GB/s

I'm back to share a project I recently completed.
Behold my 7" LCD Mac stats case mod:
IMG_0217.jpeg

Stats LCD0.jpg

I bought an Ingcool 7" LCD from Amazon for $61, modified/Dremeled a $12 Kuman 7" Raspberry Pi case, and installed iStatistica Pro $9.99. I used 2-sided automotive tape to mount it inside my Phanteks Evolv X case and connected it to my Radeon VII via the open HDMI port. USB power is via an NZXT internal USB "hub".

It shows up as a second monitor, so I simply moved iStatisca Pro to it and maximized the window. Tada!! Realtime stats. I know it's a novelty, but, personally, I think it turned out pretty cool. Happy to get your thoughts and feedback.

About 30 minutes for 6gb circa? It seems a bit slow for me, but it's my first approach with TB. Maybe Is the cable, or some sort of incompatibility between Mac/hack and Windows?
