iMessage Fixer

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

A while back I wrote a tiny app to fix certain issues with iMessage/Messages and FaceTime.

 

This app will remove corrupted files and the Messages/FaceTime database and the Network Interface preference files which might be the cause for iMessage/Messages and FaceTime not working properly.

If you are having activation issues with iMessage, this application is not the answer but if you already activated iMessage on your Mac or Hack and the Messages is acting up you can use this app to fix it.

 

iMessage Fixer.zip

 

There are other issues that can result in imessage/Messages and FaceTime not working properly like using a blacklisted Serial Number or MLB or SmUUID or simply an unactivated AppleID. If that's the case you need to use Clover Configurator 5.2.0.1 (or newer version) to rebuild your SMBIOS data with the most updated details like shown in the picture below:

All you have to do is to select the SMBIOS section and then form the SMBIOS selector choose the most compatible SMBIOS with your hardware:

Then you need to select the RtVariable section to generate the MLB based on your SMBIOS data and then just click the Generate button next to ROM to automatically generate the MLB and ROM ID based on your SMBIOS and then copy/paste the MLB from the newly generated info into the MLB box next to the ROM filed. Save your new config.plist

Once you did the steps above and save the config, close Clover Configurator and the run the iMessage Fixer app and then reboot the computer, once macOS is loaded, login into iMessage or Messages using your AppleID and hopefully you can activate your iMessage and FaceTime.

 

Important Note:

If you already signed in AppStore or iCloud using your current config.plist you might need to remove that device from iCloud in order to prevent the Account Lock Up by Apple because once you change the Serial Number, MLB and SmUUID Apple's server will lock your account in order to protect your data and you need to rest the your AppleID's password.

 

I hope you find this helpful.

 

Cheers :)

Well, I just did LOL


In any case, I am sure your app did what its supposed to. System asked me to relogin into icloud so I guess that settles it for that part. Still cant activate imessage. Must be some config I might hv missed.

Have you ever used this Apple ID on any legitimate apple devices?

You need to scratch your Apple ID on the bottom of the window as well ;)

Yeah my bad I didn't notice that the iMessage is still inactive!

Have you ever used this Apple ID on any legitimate apple devices like an iPhone, iPad or MacBook etc.?


This app won't activate the iMessage, if you get a prompt that "You cannot sign in to iMessage on this Mac at this time." error you need to contact Apple and send them the customer code and sadly there's no other way at least I haven't found one yet :(

Take a look at this guide this might help:

I'm testing it right now to see if that method is working

Hi, I tried a lot of guides, including the mentioned but cannot login to imessage neither facetime. I have working icloud account activated on real iphone, but I see that I have linked the telephone number of that iPhone that is not mine and I cannot remove it without loging to iMessage, apparently.


Is there any log file where can I at least check what is wrong with iMessage?
