Extract ramdisk DMG without Snow Leopard

Is there a way to extract a decrypted ramdisk DMG without Snow Leopard?

For instance, the FLS file of the baseband update shows zero size when extracted with Leopard or with HFSExlporer.

I was wondering the same exact thing, and so far I have found no answers :/ I've tried mounting the ramdisk on a pwned 3.0 device, but I can't seem to get the image to mount successfully. Anyone know how to do this or any other method?--Cool name 18:24, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

I have some rather hacky xpwn patches to allow you to extract most files in the compressed ramdisk. I can release those if you'll are desperate. The only catch is they only extract files >64k, and don't allow you you add in compressed files --posixninja 19:07, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Posixninja, I think we would very much appreciate you sharing these xpwn patches with us :)--Cool name 19:22, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

ok, I uploaded it to my drop [1]. these are just the related files, most of the work in these was done by the wonderful planetbeing, not me. also I haven't tested it on windows at all yet, so there could be some issues. --posixninja 19:36, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Great, thank you :) I've gotten it to work, however, is there a way to make it work with genpass? Genpass fails when running on a compressed ramdisk, so I don't know if this tool could help with that problem...--Cool name 20:10, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
genpass fail isn't because of the compressed ramdisk, there's anther issue that I haven't fixed yet in genpass. i'll try to get that fixed asap, it's been on my todo list for awhile now --posixninja 20:26, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
ah ok, sounds good. That new genpass will be very useful :) --Cool name 20:28, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! --Oranav 21:35, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Can't you just mount them after you decrypt them with xpwn? --Dra1nerdrake 01:32, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

I couldn't open your drop site. is there another solution for mounting the ramdisk Itaiyz97 09:24, 6 February 2012 (MST)
