Torrent download provided by MarcoPolo... standard ISO images.
No need for "custom" commercial software to use this image. Many thanks to Luigi Auriemma for UIF2ISO tool.
Spread the word about UIF and MagicISO being the thieving pigs that they are...
The Original torrent I got was in UIF format.
UIF is an encrypted, obfuscated ISO format designed by some lame
Chinese guy to try to force people to buy MagicISO, which is itself a
bogus product that was created from a valid open-source product call DAA2ISO and
it simply mangles the ISO image internals such that only MagicISO will read them
in order to try to force users to buy MagicISO. So lame... so sad...
Since the UIF image (Universal Image Format) is, in fact, just a
compressed CD/DVD image created through a commercial program called
MagicISO in order to force people to buy MagicISO, I have
rendered the UIF files into original ISO format, so...
"screw you, Gang JiaPing, you thieving MagicISO pee-pee-puffer".
I have used the open-source program UIF2ISO to create this plain old ISO bin/cue torrent.
--PLEASE SEED THIS TORRENT AND PUT ASSHOLES LIKE GANG JIAPING OUT OF BUSINESS.
BTW, here is an excerpt from the awesome UIF2ISO tool's readme file:
2) Shame on MagicISO and GPL violation
The chinese program called MagicISO has created the UIF format in the
2006 and, exactly like PowerISO already did at the beginning of that
year, this format has been slowly started to be used to re-diffuse
copyrighted material through BitTorrent... with the right effect that
anyone hates this format (which is totally useless and, being closed,
it must be NOT used on file sharing networks).
This is a shameful marketing strategy made by the same author of
MagicISO (a certain Gang JiaPing) for forcing the users who download
these torrents to buy and use his program.
These facts have been confirmed just recently due to the introduction
of various senseless encryption mechanisms in the UIF files released
on BitTorrent, all encryptions which have nothing to do with the UIF
format but have been inserted only for trying to avoid the usage of my
uif2iso alternative... without success 8-)
The last fact is that the recent 5.5.272 version of MagicISO has
introduced well "8" customized encryption algorithms plus other
modifications JUST with the target of making the UIF format unreadable
(again without success, look at uif2iso 0.1.6) and has also introduced
support for the DAA image format.
Unfortunately most of the code used by MagicISO has been "taken" from
my other open source daa2iso tool violating my GPL license and showing
how much ehmmmm "unprofessional" is the author of that program (the
terms I used in a previous version of this file for describing him
were most appropriate but not good for the neutrality of this readme):
So, my best suggestion is to spread the voice about the shameful
actions of MagicISO and its author and avoiding to download or keep
the seeding of torrents of UIF or DAA images.
And remember that uif2iso has been created only for supporting the UIF
format and *NOT* for playing "cat and mouse" with an idiot who
modifies this stupid zipped format each time for becoming the only
program able to read it...
If you download any torrents with UIF images in them, you do not need to buy MagicISO.
Simply download Luigi's UIF2ISO tool, convert the files and share them back out as
standard ISO images for the good of everyone.
