I also had the iMessage problem, both in ML and Mavericks, and what I did was to download the latest Chameleon 2.2 and copy FileNVRam 1.1.3 to modules folder, and then both iMessage and FaceTime works very well.. No boot flags or password changing used afterwards.. Just reboot the machine and voila!;)

All good for me,

Gigabyte Z77-UD5H, Intel i7 3770K, 16 Gig Corsair RAM

Created new usb installer as per TonyMacs Guide, Clean install to HDD

I kept my SMBIOS.PLIST from my Mountain Lion Install (keep the same serial number)

Used new Multibest to install audio, networks drivers ... etc
Be sure to check for updates for all your apps and utilities.
For iMessage workaround Use go here:-

Also be sure that your internet is connected to the Intel ethernet adapter (eth0) seems that is important for the App Store.

Once i got my build working i used carbon copy cloner to move new Mavericks build to my SSD Raid.
iMessage, App Store, iCloud all working without any problems and absolutely flies , best OSX yet

I've attached a multibeast install profile for Z77-UD5H V1.2 PCB

Cheers and Good luck everybody
Jay

Hi,

Everything is working well on mine. I didn't had to do any trick with my Ethernet connexion. The Mac App Store worked OOb, same for iCloud. And in order to get iMessage to work, I just had to use Chameleon to have Chimera r2266 (latest one) loaded instead of the 2248.
Simplest installation ever !

So everything is great, except for AirPlay. My Hack is connected to internet with a Time Capsume FYI.

I can airplay a video or a song to my Apple TV with iTunes since I have the airplay icon in the iTunes app. But I still don't have the airplay icon in the menu bar.
In my Display settings, the "Show mirror..." is ticked. But I don't have a drop down menu as I have seen on some screen captures here and there with "Off - Apple TV" or other options.

My hack is linked to 2 24" displays by the way. But I just tried to unplug one of them and it didn't help. So maybe it's not possible to do it with 2 displays... if anyone have it working and uses 2 displays, some feedback experience would be great !

Thanks :)

Now you work the audio? I have your same configuration

Shox01, I think you are referring to your other post where you were trying to get the headphone audio port (the green one) to work. Toleda replied that it would be unlikely to work as it did not work in Mountain Lion. I replied and explained that toleda was referring to a known problem with the Z77X-UD5H where the green headphone port does not work with OSX. I also outlined various other solutions that you could use.

I think that maybe English is not your first language so excuse me if I have got that wrong. Here it is in as simple a way as I can think of.

You will not get the green audio connector at the back of the motherboard to work - it does not work with OSX.
The other ports will work - I have used the black one before.
Another solution would be to use the Optical Audio out.
Yet another solution if you want a headphone solution is to use USB headphones.

I currently use HDMI audio - I have made a DSDT following instructions linked to in my previous post (written by toleda on enabling HDMI audio on EUFI boards). So my audio comes via the HDMI lead to my monitor which has speakers. I also use USB headphones whenever I want headphones.

So the 898 drivers in Multibeast 6.0 work fine the only problem is that the green port does not work and on these boards will not ever work on OSX.

I hope I have explained that in a way you can understand. :thumbup:

OK, trying to understand what you just said there. Do you mean you loaded a version of Chimera called r2266 or did you use Chameleon boot loader r2266 instead of Chimera. I am guessing that you mean you used Chameleon but thought I would check

I get all the way to the end and I get an installation failed screen with no additional information on how or why it failed.

Anybody run into this or have any suggestions?

I followed the step by step and am upgrading from ML 10.8.4

I got both iWork and iLife updated from the App store for free without too many problems(would stall, but Im guessing cause I was updating so many at once). But now all 6 apps are up to date.

The only problem I have is sleep. When I put the machine to sleep, it works, turns the monitor and machine off. When I wake it up, the machine wakes up but the monitor does not wake up, forcing me to reboot the computer.

try darkwake=0
sleep works perfectly on my rig

All USB 3.0 ports on rear side does not work for storage devices, such as USB stick and External HDD. Everything works exactly fine on two front ports, though.

It seems USB 3.0 drive installed properly. I have tried both UniBeast preloaded driver as well as GenericUSBXHCI 1.2.7d8, but both drivers did not solved the problem.

As you might able to see on my attachment, there are both USB 3.0 Hi-Speed Bus and SuperSpeed Bus on the device tree list. Hmm......


On my USB info I have 2 4 Port USB Hubs under the USB Super Speed heading. It also read USB flash drives. I haven't installed any additional Kexts with multi beast either. Which revision of the board do you have?
