DasBoot: Freeware Utility To Turn An Old iPod Into Bootable Mac First-Aid Tool

Published March 3rd, 2007
DasBoot - Make your iPod a bootable Mac OS X toolkit DasBoot SysAdmin Freeware Makes Bootable iPodsOriginally downloaded March 3, 2007. The design of this website is so, um, PC-like that I hesitate to even download one of their products. However, the concept behind DasBoot is one that's intrigued me lately. Micromat, the makers of TechTool Pro and other hits, have come out with a similar piece of software called Protogo , which is a software-only version of a hardware product they'd already started selling. But if DasBoot can do the important half of what Protogo does em:for free, I'm sold! I figure I definitely want to try DasBoot before shelling out $135 for Protogo... :-) With DasBoot, you basically turn an old iPod into a bootable Mac, on which you can then install whatever diagnostic utilities you already own... like TechTool Pro, DiskWarrior, Drive Genius, and the like.

Version as tested: 1.0.2.
