[MacOS] Handle DMG Images under Microsoft Windows

Are you one of those lonesome people who tried to access the contents of a DMG image under Windows? Yes, there are several ways like converting to ISO with programs like Magic-Iso or mounting with Mac-Drive. All these solutions are nice, handy and well... expensive... Simply using 7-zip is in my opinion the easiest way, as all of us should have 7-Zip installed anyway ;-)
  • right click the .dmg file
  • choose: 7-Zip
  • a submenu opens, in that submenu choose: unpack to <nameofmydmg\>
  • wait a couple of secs while unpacking and open the subfolder <nameofmydmg\>
  • you should find a bunch of files: 0.MBR 1.Primary GPT Header 2.Primary GPT Table 3.free 4.hfs 5.free 6.Backup GPT Table 7.Backup GPT Header
  • The file for further examination is "4.hfs". It mostly is a lot bigger than all the rest of the files.
  • now do a right click on "4.hfs" again and
  • choose 7-Zip
  • a submenu opens again, now in that submenu choose: unpack to <4\>
  • et voilà...
you're done with unpacking... now fire IDA and find the jump ;-)
