Make mac boootable USB in Ubuntu

Put in a USB device, then do

dmesg | tail

Depending on what /dev/sdX device is listed, do

mkfs.vfat /dev/sdX -I

Note, the above command WILL wipe the USB drive!

Now take the downloaded .ISO, and do

dd of=/dev/sdX if=<path_to_.iso> bs=1M

Reboot the Mac, while holding Alt. A boot prompt should come up and allow you to boot from the USB.
