    Is this possible?

    Is a jailbreaked iPad/iPhone capable of mounting these images using the default available programs?

    Thanks in advance,

    I'd be very surprised if it did, but don't know 100%.

    I can't remember exactly the details, but isn't the diskarbitration daemon in OS X responsible for managing them? If that's not there and that framework isn't there, I'm not sure what can be done.

    If you have a non-encrypted, non-compressed DMG you might be able to use open-source code to read the file system directly, but that's ugly, but most likely you have a compressed DMG.

    What are you trying to do exactly?

    Hello!

    i get confused by all webistes that contain information regarding mounting of dmg files.

    And if mounting is not possible, what about something like the snippets below:

    Is this possible on the iPad / iPhone?
    How do i find out what commands are and are not supported on IOS?

    Thanks in advance,

    I'm not sure there is an officially maintained list (by Apple). They don't really ever want you shelling out to Unix commands from your app. The jailbrake community may have one but on here most posters are not interested in jailbrake app writing...
