I’m upgrading to Lion OS specifically because of this feature- the iCloud. So I was quite frustrated when iCloud “told” me this when I tried to login after upgrading to 10.7.2 :
Your Apple ID is valid but is not an iCloud account
The same thing happens when I tried to log in to my itunes or app store accounts. Denied. Or it was not recognized by Apple or some other error messages.
I did cross check my itunes and app store id on my IOS 5 devices’s iCloud and they are all working. So I figured out this must be something related to hackintosh upgrades.
I did find quite a number of “fix” but they all didn’t work for my hackintosh build. The first two “fix” I tried crashed my hackintosh. I must warn you though that this may not necessarily work for you, or crash your hackintosh (slim chance) or if you have a hackintosh with a raid volume, it may also crash or would not boot at all. But personally, I find this the simpliest and less drastic way of fixing that icloud bug. And it worked!
- Download EFI Studio and open it up.
- In the dropdown menu for devices, create a device string for your on board LAN.
- Paste that string to your org.chamelon.com.plist
- I deleted the “ethernetbuiltin” string.
<string>paste the string here</string>
