Hackintosh iMessage login error fix

February 21, 2013 Leave a comment

Started not long ago iMessage suddenly stopped working on my hackintosh laptop (A 1080p HP 4530s) with the following error when trying to setting iMessage account:

The server encountered an error processing registration. Please try again later.

After struggling for a few weeks (going through the official apple support forum, messing around with firewall, system date/time, and /etc/hosts) I found the solution here (actually this Chimera solution just came out 2 days ago),

Link for the newest Chimera (2.0.1) is here:

Here are the steps (specific to my HP 4530S with HP Probook Installer version 6)

  1. Download and install Chimera 2.0.1
  2. Open the HP Probook installer and install “Graphic glitch fix” under “Optional hardware-specific fixes” if you did not install that when you set up your probook (doesn’t harm to re-install though)
  3. Reboot and enjoy

Note: Step 2 might not apply to you. I did step 2 because I got some choppy black boxes on the screen after upgrading to Chimera 2.0.1.
