10.6: Set a firmware password from the command line
Authored by: Anonymous on Sep 12, '11 09:38:27AM
You need to copy that MacOSX.dmg to your desktop or somewhere on your machine, then change the hidden flags
Why? It's entirely optional. There's nothing stopping you from mounting the disk image directly. You don't even have to mess with diskutil -- just use the open command:
open  "/Volumes/Mac OS X Install/MacOSX.dmg"

You can also use hdutil on this as well to mount the image. However, given my time crunch of it needed to be done yesterday this was my very first draft on how to do it. By all means you are correct, this could have been a bit smoother I won't argue that
