How to convert .CDR to .ISO and make a bootable USB disk

File-format incompatibility between Apple Mac OS and Microsoft Windows operating-systems is something every user faces utilizing both operating-systems. One such incompatibility is the disk-image format used by both operating-systems, while Apple Mac OS uses .CDR format Microsoft Windows utilizes the international disk-imaging standard .ISO, so you would need something to convert .CDR to .ISO file-format and vice-versa to use them under rival operating-systems. Luckily, the only difference between two is the file-extension, and all one needs to do is to change the .ISO/.CDR extension to make them work interchangeably without any real file-format conversion. We can also use this fact to make perfectly bootable USB disks from .CDR files from Windows and Linux using existing tools allowing cloning of .ISO format to USB.

Firest0rm - Another Apple iOS 6.1.4 Jailbreak Scam

Scamming users looking for Apple iOS 6.1.3+ jailbreak is something we covered earlier, and it seems the trend is here to stay with another entry named Firest0rm claiming to offer untethered Jailbreak for iOS 6.1.4 & even iOS 7. Using the same modus-operandi as earlier, the perpetrators of this scam asks users to download their utility asking them to complete a survey to unlock the zip file containing the Apple iOS 6.1.4 and iOS 7 untethered jailbreak which is nothing but fake/dummy. This is not all, as suggested by many comments in the previous post this could even be a virus/malware and can harm users computers - so the bottom line is stay from it.
