The dmg2john bug was fixed, and then we realized both dmg2john and the format blatantly ignored the iterations count - which is bumped a lot in later OSX versions (it was hard-coded to 1000 while newer Macs produce files with over 200,000 iterations, and seemingly depending on available CPU power at creation time). Finally, some known-plain stuff was tweaked.

Downloaded the new version. Ran dmg2john across several different sized AES-256 DMGs (100MB, 200MB, 15GB) [no data]. Successfully cracked the password on all of them. Hooray! 

Now, onto the the "real" one. ;)
