Well here we are. Finally, my very first full Cocoa program. One that does not come from a book.
crowbarDMG is a dictionary attack tool for DMG and Spareimage files for Macs. It does require 10.5 Leopard. It really wasn’t worth the trouble to redo things to work on Tiger. It is completely free, so enjoy. Be sure to read the included PDF readme file. I address an issue if you use strings to pull out a dictionary from a disc image. Some control characters need to be scrubbed else it will crash crowbarDMG. Give it a shot if you need to recover a password for a dmg or filevault file.
*UPDATE* – Please make sure to run Check for Updates to obtain the latest build. I have released v1.0.1 that implements garbage collection to help prevent memory leaks for long duration projects.

Thanks as well to the following code and frameworks:
