DMG 2 ISO via Terminal: no need for any tool

If you downloaded a Mac image (.dmg file) and you need to open or burn from a Windows/Linux machine, you can easily convert it to the very common .iso format. Open the terminal and type this command:

 hdiutil convert /path/to/filename.dmg -format UDTO -o /path/to/savefile.iso

Note that this tool appends an extra .cdr extension to the file, but just rename it – even via terminal with:

mv /path/to/savefile.iso.cdr /path/to/savefile.iso

and you are done!
