Hackintosh iMessage Tutorial

iMessage Tutorial on El Capitan and Yosemite Works on OS X 10.10+ Requires Clover boot loader, and has been tested up to macOS 10.12
Clover Configurator: http://mackie100projects.altervista.org/download/


Sometimes Necessary: Set Up Network Configuration
IMPORTANT:Make sure that your primary network is set as en0. A lot of the time, this is a major issue and is often overlooked. If you use WiFi as your primary network, it has to be en0. Open System Profiler, click Ethernet or Wifi, depending on how you receive your internet, and make sure the network is listed as en0. If not, delete NetworkInterfaces.plist and Preferences.plist in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration.  In many cases, this is unnecessary.


How To Get iMessage Working on Yosemite and El Capitan Download Clover Configurator and run the program.

For the tutorial, I've selected the iMac 8,1, but I do not recommend it.
