Guide: Get iCloud, App Store and iMessage working!

Recommended Posts

Get iCloud, App Store and iMessage working on Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks!

?

Hi, I'm Paludan and I recently installed Mavericks. I had to face the issue of my iCloud, App Store and iMessage not working. This is how I fixed it:

?

iCloud & App Store fix:

?

Download this file:?http://cl.ly/2s3Y0K1n0d2g2s222V1P

?

1. Go to system preferences, network, click on the Ethernet network adapter, click the minus button at the bottom, hit apply.?

?

2. Go to /Library/Preferences/System Configuration/NetworkInterfaces.Plist and delete it or move it somewhere else. (just in case)

?

3. Open up EFI studio, change device to Ethernet, then click add device.

?

4. Copy this:?

?

<key>device-properties</key>

<string></string>?

?

5. Paste that in your org.Chameleon.boot.plist file which is located in /extra/org.chameleon.boot.plist. The key and the string match up with the others. Go back to the EFI? Studio editor.

?

6. Copy the long number at the bottom and paste it in between the two strings in your chameleon boot plist file.

?

7. Save & Restart?

?

8. Go in to system preferences, then network, then click the plus button at the bottom.?

?

9. Click add in the window that pops up. It should say "Ethernet". If it has "en1" or "en0" after it, then repeat the above steps.

?

10. After adding that hit apply and restart one last time.?

?

11. Go to Safari to check that you're getting internet connectivity, then continue signing into iCloud and/or the App Store!

?

?

iMessage fix:

?

1. Install Chameleon

?

2. Install the FileNVRAM.dylib?

  • Go to your /Extra folder --> Create a "Modules" folder without the quotes if you haven't already got one
  • Drag and drop the FileNVRAM.dylib to the Modules folder
  • Reboot and sign in to iMessage!

?

I hope this helped, it worked for me smile.png

thanks for sharing. by the way,how to fix iMassage with clover?please

In fact, Clover was the first introducing iMessage fix through RtVariables by adding MLB and ROM (not a must) > http://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Configuration/RtVariables#MLB

?

BTW, it's already deprecated in recent versions. ?Try upgrade your Clover, or add those keys under RtVariables if wanted to stick with the old one that has been used.

Agreed. Clover sometimes is just over complicated, more fun though :P

Apparently, ethernet gives significant impact to the issue. Do you ever know how to fix iCloud if a user don't have ethernet card (at all, or just incompatible in OS X)? I was hitting wall when tried helping someone.

I believe this works with WiFi as well, just instead of removing the Ethernet, then you remove your WiFi smile.png

If you ever happen to do it again on, tell me how it goes! :P
