What versions?

What versions are the beta 4-7 it is referring to? --5urd 00:58, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

This page seems fairly recent, so, I'd say iOS 4.2? remember how that went through like 50 betas? --rdqronos 21:07, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
No, the move was recent, the page goes back to '08. Maybe 2.0b4-2.0b7 because those are the only ones with a beta 6(p/f) and 7... --5urd 00:16, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Deletion Request

I don't want to have valuable information deleted, just because it's old. Feel free to improve, reorganize, mark as deprecated or whatever, but don't delete useful information. If you can prove that all this information is already somewhere else in this wiki, then, and only then, it's ok to delete. I'll remove the deletion mark to avoid that it stays there forever and then one day someone accidentally deletes it. You can continue discussion nevertheless. --http (talk) 07:52, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

I vote delete. Specifically, why the heck is this tutorial so complicated? All you need to do is strip the IMG header (first 64 bytes, with dd) then you use 'file' and see:

bash-3.2# file restore.dmg 
restore.dmg: Macintosh HFS Extended version 4 data last mounted by: '10.0', created: Thu Aug  8 04:07:48 2013, last modified: Sat Aug 24 14:31:00 2013, last checked: Thu Aug  8 07:07:48 2013, block size: 4096, number of blocks: 2342, free blocks: 0

Then you just use

hdiutil attach -imagekey diskimage-class=CRawDiskImage restore.dmg

And you are done. Tutorial is confusing. --morpheus

Fine by me to delete. --iAdam1n (talk) 16:51, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
You added the initial request, right? No need to repeat it again. To morpheus: Why don't you update the article then? Or is this explained in detail somewhere else already? There is no added value in deleting something old. If it's wrong or complicated, let's improve it. I agree that the page title is bad and the content belongs somewhere else though. --http (talk) 22:16, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
