HELP NEEDED:

iServices not working.

What I've tried:

Got NullEthernet.kext and SSDT for the same and is recognised as en0 Builtin because I've a incompatible wireless adapter.

Generated various smBIOS with different serials, MLBs, Uuid and ROM values verifying that they are invalid.

My personal Apple ID used on my iPhone gave me solution to contact Apple Support which I did and they perhaps unblacklisted my account still not working. Tried making more Apple IDs(Atleast 4) with throwaway emails and valid phone numbers still got the same message so there is definitely some issue with my Setup. I would be glad to reward whoever helps me get the iServices working on my Hackintosh.
