Volume 1 - Chapter 3 - second paragraph: "the chapter then moves to disk Disk Images (.dmg)"

Dang! Where were you guys with Volume III when I needed people like you ? :P

This is awesome. Please keep it coming.

Interestingly, Guido misses those minor typos in Chapter 1. Makes one wonder how the brain's autocorrect system works. I was staring at the screen for hours till I think my eyes just saw what they wanted to.

Volume 1 - Chapter 3 - Section "Disk Images"

I think that

"after MobileImageMounter sends it the Darwin notification"

should be

"after MobileStorageMounter sends it the Darwin notification"

even if you are mentioning a "/usr/libexec/mobile_image_mounter" while illustrating TaiG in the third volume.

J Says: Yeah. There's a MobileStorageMounter and a mobile_image_mounter. That was back in 8, two different components, Working together. Also MSM wasn't in its present /usr/libexec/location.

P.S - Glad to see you read my third volume as well (and relieved there weren't as many typos ;-)

A pair of missing closing parenthesis in Volume 1 - Chapter 4 - Section "FSEvents".

Correct:
Second paragraph: "ioctl(2) codes (such as FSEVENTS_WANT_COMPACT_EVENTS or ..WANT_EXTENDED_INFO) and be used"
Figure 4-1: "read(*clone_args.fd, &events, sizeof(events));"
