Hi.
Wanted to start a talk how we can extract (an how it is already done) IBX keys. According to technical details of freeme:
Since the
IndivBox.key file is shuffled in a random way for each client, these
keys would be extremely difficult to extract from the file itself.
Fortunately, we don't have to: these keys are part of the object state
that is maintained by this library, and since the offset within this
object of these secret keys is known, we can let the library itself
extract the secret keys! The code for this simply loads up the "black
box" library, has it initialize an instance of the object, and then
reads the keys right out of that object.
As I belive now it should not be that easy to extract keys from this object and probably this is not what FairUse4WM/mirakagi does. But I believe it gets IBX public key (It can be found for instance in license database file) and then tries to find it in IndivBox.key. As we may suspect somewhere "near" this key should be private key. This would explain why it outputs something like this:
AES: 4e 68 d7 2b c6 01 cf 5a 1e f3 3f ee 1f 73 a3 45
Decoding secondary keys
Please wait for 19587 attempts.
It is finished.
As I suspect these "19587 attempts" are just tries to check whether some set of bytes is the private key or not. But does anyone know how we can perform this check? I think about taking one license from the license file and trying to decode content key. It should be "short" and (not sure of this) begin with 7.
Regards.

Is it a random access AES key generator...

It might search for the the key that unlocks the file to gain access to the data contained in the IBX... (ie Brute force attack)...

No it isn't I have found viodentias post that explains what is really going on :)
The AES key displayed in new key extraction
For the v11 individualization, v2ksndv.bla (or v2ks###.bla) is now an XML file. There are two tags of particular interest, the first 40 bytes of "c:PKCert" is the public key for ECC encryption and the "Keys" which stores all the secondary keys.

Each time you re-individualize, the DLL sends "escrowed" key information to Microsoft's servers which decrypts it and re-encrypts it inside this secondary key table. These are all the keys for previous individualizations.

The <Keys> tag is encrypted with AES in Counter mode using the displayed key. To decrypt, create a 16-byte BIG-ENDIAN counter (that is, 16 bytes of 0, next would be 15-bytes of 0's and one 1 byte, and so forth). Encrypt that with the AES key. XOR the output with the next 16-bytes from the tag.

Once decrypted, the Keys tag holds a XML document which in turn has both the old ECC keys (which v1.3 happily extracts for you), and some RSA keys - the RSA keys are apparently new for v11, and I don't know what they're for.

By the way, if one looks at the individualization process in Wireshark, it's conceivable that future individualizations can be handled with the assistence of Microsoft's own servers.
Now I just have to understand it and implement :D

There is much confusion, of which I will try and resolve. This information is my own fabrication. It may not represent actual reality. Nor do I speak for any employers, past or present.

The IBX or Individual Black-boX is a method of practical implementation of access control. The goal is to entangle decryption capability with policy enforcement in a manner that resists separation.

Concretely: The IBX only decrypts video for a blesssed player application.

An IBX is just a DLL (renamed to .key), that contains two assymmetric keypairs (1 - Elliptic Curve Cryptosystem, see freeme doc. 2 - RSA, not documented) and one symmetric key (explained later). It also contains the code to parse licenses, checks that the system clock hasn't been moved backwards, verifications that it is running on the same hardware, and signature validation for the players. When things work perfectly, the application gives the IBX the XML licenses + encrypted file data, and gets back fresh clean multimedia data.

In theory, this is doomed - all the keys are in the hands of the attacking parties. In practice, the inevitable is delayed by layers of obfuscation and renewability. As long as each version lasts long enough for the next to be prepared, then the system is reasonably secure.

For WM11, IBX files are obfuscated by a tool called "warbird", which is more of an ineffectual surrender chicken. The process likely goes like this, for a large number of IBX components.
1. Generate random key data
2. create source from templates + key data
3. Compile into object files
4. apply "warbird" obfuscations
5. link (shuffling the order of object files)
6. sign

Warbird uses the linkage information in the object files to make certain alterations.
It encrypts certain whole routines, some randomly picked, others based on configuration.
Other routines are seperated into basic blocks (a flow of asssembly statements without a branch), each block is encrypted individually, and the branches are removed (stored in a seperate table).

The encryption is a home grown, weak cipher that uses two 24 bit keys (one for even bytes, the other for odd bytes). The keys are either stored in the IBX, or are calculated in code based on hashing other parts of the IBX to ensure integrity.

To further protect the valuable asymmetric keys, the keys are stored in a mutated form. They are transformed by XORring with a random value, as well as being rotated.

One problem in this scenario is that each IBX has a key, but it is impossible to handle upgrades. If you have IBX v0, and software upgrades you to IBX v1, you want to play all your old files! We handle this in both directions with an associated file (XML, ending in .bla). This file contains your current asymmetric keys, encrypted to a secret private key that only the individualization servers have. When you go to upgrade, this "escrowed" data is encrypted with the new IBX's symmetric key, and stored in the XML file.

Recap:
.key - Obfuscated: ECC key pair, RSA key pair, AES key
.bla - Encrypted to Microsoft key: ECC keypair, RSA keypair, AES key. Encrypted to AES key: ECC/RSA keypairs for PREVIOUS IBX files.

c0redump's method used in fairuse4wm and mirakagi worked by extracting the private ECC key data and AES key from the IBX due to the weak obfuscation. Since the key data is mutated, instead of executing IBX code to undo the mutation, the attack just tried every possible mutation on the ECC key data.

The new IBX tries to prevent these issues by increasing the number of mutations to make the attack infeasible, using more instructions and better checking to make emulation difficult, and improving slightly improving some microobfuscation. Some of the code that came from cloakware can't be rewritten at this time, so some weaknesses remain.

However, this new version complexifies the simple scanning attacks that worked on the prior versions.

To answer an unasked question - what can you do?

it is feasible for a moderately skilled attacker to get the keys from any single IBX. Preventing this is impractical. Obfuscation only aims to prevent tools from working over the long term.

The easiest attack to mount, then, is to figure out what registry keys are involved in preventing an IBX downloaded on machine A from being moved to machine B. When you can do this, you can distribute IBX files with the associated keypairs.

This strategy will also cause more grief for the obfuscation team, as the exact methods used will no longer become public.

I am unaware of this file being on a bittorrent site. Since each version includes information that will link it to the leaking party, it is unlikely to be leaked.

fairuse4wm did not use this sdk. It used the freely available windows media sdk, however, it used an undocumented API, probably by guessing the parameters. This undocumented API was used to open and walk the hashed datastore (HDS file).
This API will probably be removed from future versions of the public SDK.


As I suspect these "19587 attempts" are just tries to check whether some set of bytes is the private key or not. But does anyone know how we can perform this check? I think about taking one license from the license file and trying to decode content key. It should be "short" and (not sure of this) begin with 7.
It is actually much simpler. The public key is, well, public. The parameters are public now in the freeme doc. The secret key is just an integer.
In ECC, the public key is (IIRC) (Secret Key)*(Generator Point).
So the code does an scalar multiply then does a compare.
There are some optimizations involving projective transforms and other cases, but you will not find the bytes of the key in the IBX (see above post). This isn't AACS stuff.

Yeah I can confirm that this is the version I was using. It works with my 11.0.6000.7000. I don't know about readme file but in order to make it work you can do as fallows:
1) Run program
2) Choose a directory where you have your asf/wmv/wma files
Be careful since open dialog box on my machine was showing default file name as: ????????????. Just change it to *.*. Select one of the files and hit open.
3) Hit MultiScan.
drmdbg should now show you combination of KID/SID you can then copy this to some text file (drmdbg also makes a copy ) and use it with i.e. FreeMe2.
BTW on this japanese site there is some kind of forum, which unfortunatelly I don't know how to use :D So I have a question to ask. Can someone (who knows japanese) ask taku/inoyan to contact with me. I would like to ask them about few things regarding wm drm in order to improve FreeMe2.

I'm pretty sure the English version can view Japanese text as long as you have Asian language support installed. Notepad can, so why not?

Of course it's possible the file isn't in Unicode, so you'd have to set your codepage to Japanese to view it properly.

it took me forever to find it a few days ago and now I can't find the link again but I kept the setup files. I couldn't get it working w/ IBX 11.0.6000.7000 though. Every time I run it through freeme2 and drm2wmv after getting the keys from drmdbg, my file just came out as nothing but jumbled high pitched noise. But here you go anyway (I also but the latest drmdbg because DreckSoft said the old link was dead):

EDIT: I have the new drmdbg now working with drm2wmv, still not with freeme2. I will see if I can get it working with automate undrm. Also, my above link include automate undrm 2.0 as well as the new drmdbg so now there are two mirrors for automate undrm and hopefully that lasts a while.

Ok, I got it to work using Automate unDRM.
FreeMe2 was giving me those corrupt files that sound messed up and only play for a few seconds.
This is with Windows Media Player 11.0.5721.5145 and IndivBox,key v11.0.6000.7000.
I'm also doing it as i'm typing this.

1. So I open up drmdbg 2007/10/03 and in the WMV DIR I browse to where i have my files, i change the ???????????????? to *.*, press enter and open up any one of those files.
2. In the DRM2 DIR I put the directory of the drm2wmv folder located in the automate unDRM directory, "C:\Program Files\Automate unDRM\drm2wmv\".
3. Then I hit multiscan and wait for it to do its thing, you'll know when its done when the last track starts playing. Now you can close drmdbg.
4. Now I open up Automate unDRM Decryptit and select all the files in the folder, I check Delete Original and Decrypt Only and then hit start and wait for that to do its thing.

And finally, like magic, i'm DRM free!

If this works for everyone, then i think I did a good job for my first post

Here's a little C# prog I made just to make it a little easier for multiple files. It uses drm2mv.exe and the LATEST drmdbg.exe so make sure you have those files. It's my first C# prog so it will be buggy or it may not even work at all for you so please use at your own risk. I will not take the blame if it messes up anything on your computer. If you believe this is some form of malware then don't download it.

The program, called DRMHelper, finds drm protected media in a directory you specify, including subdirectories, and lists them and give you options on what to do with them. It's similar to FairUseCommander and what it does with FU4WM.

All the instructions are in the Readme.txt so please read that first before you do anything. Again this prog may not work correctly for you as at first I built this program for myself and myself only but then I decided to try and make it work for anyone, but no promises on that.

ALSO, only use drmdbg, drm2wmv, and my prog on media that you legally own and not just files you have "rented." I am not responsible for any of the actions you take

only added the rename thing for now because it was easy. In order to rename you must have the delete option enabled and I'm not really sure how stable the delete option is so backup whatever you test it on. It worked for me but I can't say it'll work for everyone.

Automating the whole process I'll look into when I have time.

If this works for everyone, then i think I did a good job for my first post

Thanks, this works beautifully. :goodpost:

I had tried the same video file with FreeMe2 but it crashes everytime after I enter SID.

Yeah I'm having the same issue. drmdbg opens up, but nothing ever happens. This DOES work for audio files, right?

I might also be missing a step, so if anyone can really give a fool-proof method of doing this on Vista that'd be awesome.

1. Grabbed all the software (DRM Helper, drmdbg latest, autoUnDRM for the drm2wmv)
2. Told DRM Helper where my media is.
3. clicked Search for Media, which it found.
4. Clicked start.
5. Pointed drmdbg to my media folder and to the drm2wmv folder.
6. Clicked MultiScan

WMP opens up, plays the last song, and nothing else happens.

Dose DRMdbg load a list of crazy looking code in the lower boxes?

If so then you have the keys located in a *.key file to unDRM those files... Using decryptIT, drm2wmv, or freeme2...

use of DecryptIt is the simplest way (i found) to get all files un-drmed... (ie batch mode)


The only problem is if half the files are Drmed and half are not in the media folder then drmdbg will play the first file with out the need of Grabbing the key, causing it not to grab all of the keys...

keep only the files that need UnDRMed in the folder you wish to un-drm...

only added the rename thing for now because it was easy. In order to rename you must have the delete option enabled and I'm not really sure how stable the delete option is so backup whatever you test it on. It worked for me but I can't say it'll work for everyone.

Automating the whole process I'll look into when I have time.

I was wondering if there was a source code for this program...

I have tried everything mentioned in this thread and have had mixed results as well as mixed experiences with the various versions of stripping software. I have also downloaded the code that sectroyer posted and am working on some things to make a GUI version similar to the one we all love, but for now I've created a vbScript to help automate the process we have been discussing here in this thread.

Long story short, I've tried all the suggested methods in this post and still came across buggy results - mostly because of the way the drmdbg application processes the files - and I've come to the conclusion that it's easiest to manually run drmdbg and then run a batch script to process the audio files.

P.S. the script only works for wma files...not tested on Vista

hope this helps

FYI:

Installing the Zune software will upgrade you to IBX 11.0.6000.7000. The installer requires internet access to install.
I tried it on an XP Pro virtual machine, and it upgraded to .7000 even with the original WMP9 installed.
If you use a computer with the Zune software previously installed, it will retain the old version. My Vista Ultimate desktop is running .6324 with the Zune software installed.

What happens when you use drmdbg? I am also downloading my tracks from the Zune marketplace and have had no success with the FreeMe2/drmdbg methods. For me, I get the SIDs from drmdbg, but when I try and strip the music I get a corrupted beepy-clicky track that only plays for a few seconds. As an interim solution i've been using TuneBite but I would love to be able to truly remove the drm instead of doing the digital->analog->digital trick that TuneBite uses.

DRMDBG does nothing. It doesn't even play the last track, it just plays the first track.
Best bet is to find a PC that had the Zune software installed prior to the latest IBX update. Sign into it there, redownload the tracks (or the licenses), and strip it on there using mirakagi + FU4WM like I've been doing.

I also tried on my WinXP PC where Fairuse4wm is working fine, drmdbg neither gets the keys there.
Because it should atleast work on the xp machine, i think it's somehow my fault. So which keys have to be pressed? ;)

Interesting... I got further then you did. I'm using XP Home Edition. DRMdbg does extract keys from the Zune files, but it looks like the SID it extracts is incorrect. As I mentioned, I cannot get anything to decrypt properly. I had sectroyer take a look at one of my files, and he said that the SID I was using was not correct. So somehow drmdbg gets the wrong SID for the Zune DRM files. For me, I don't have access to another PC with an older version of IBX system.

I'll try a roll-back on my XP virtual machine to see if it can downgrade IBX when the Zune software it already installed.

I haven't tried the recent version of drmdbg, but I was having some occasional troubles with it on XP. Sometimes it wouldn't retrieve the keys, wouldnt play the media, and occasionally would create 2 instances of WMP, both completely unresponsive.

Whenever any of the above happens, a reboot of the machine has always solved the problem. I only ran drmdbg on one media file at a time, so can't comment on the process of multiple files. Also, I wouldn't recommend using any automation scripts, until you get things working manually.

Follow drmdbg with drm2wmv (freeme2 isn't quite there yet), and asfbin for reindexing as needed. Other than the occasional need to reboot to get drmdbg working, It's worked on everthing I've thrown at it.

For those on Vista, I have no advice except to upgrade to XP.

you just run the setup and then start drmdbg which will open the wmp. then you go and find the files that you want to do. In file name first type *.* and press enter then you will see your files. once you do the multiscan on your songs close that and open decryptit, installed by the setup earlier, and check decrypt only and delete original if you want to. click add and add your songs that you already did with drmdbg then start. then its done. ive linked it here.

AS of today, November 12, 2007 - FairUse4WM v1.3 FIX2 (mirakagi release) still works perfectly for me using Rhapsody downloads (WMA files) and my indivbox.key is 11.0.6000.7000, running Windows Vista Ultimate.

You guys must not know what you are doing, or you have mutiple services that use DRM. Won't work if you do that, obviously...they will created hybrid keys and not pure 11.0.6000.7000 IBX keys.

I suggest you format, reinstall Vista Ultimate, then download a few songs using Rhapsody...run mirakagi key finder, then you can run FairUse4WM all you want (just make sure windows auto update is OFF). Rhapsody is the only one that works for Vista users, because it does not force updates. Zune is horrible anyway, on XP and Vista, why use it?

The problem for most of us who are using DRMdbg and FreeMe2 is that we use multiple stores because songs that are available through one might not be through another, and we are also decrypting music from any media store that's out there... Lucky us...

it comes down to being smart, and knowing what you are doing, and WHEN you are doing it. staying up to date on so-called "security" releases from microsofts developers website...and knowing that a "security update" for XP that is listed as "vital" is in fact made to break IBX for people circumventing DRM...so this basically wipes out anyone with automatic updates on in windows. You cannot activly comabt and keep removing DRM from new downloads (like i still do to this day thru Rhapsody) when you have auto update enabled...

ok, so those of you saying "well, milOtis, i dont have auto update enabled, and i AM smart and it still doesnt work!", well, #1 - you think you're smart, but you arent if you are on Vista or XP and do nto have a working FairUse4WM today, and #2 - its broken because you are using more than one DRM service, and the more DRM services you use the more updated and robust your DRM protection will become, so pick ONE service and stay with it.

"well, milOtis, what about songs that are not available through the one service i choose"...well guess what...9/10 songs are available thru Rhapsody (more were available on URGE, but URGE is dead now...R.I.P - URGE was the BEST music service hands-down to date so far :(....but anyway, for those songs that are not available, which is rare, like a Beatles song or something....use Ares or Emule.

"but milOtis, you cannot be certain thats is good quality! it's P2P and the files could be low-fi"...again, back to being SMART...do not download the file with 100 users...obviously that is the most commonly accepted file, and I bet you 9 times out of 10 it will be 128K. Look for the 192K and up files...and then check to see only 5-10 users MAX have the file...THEN check for all the ID tag data by hovering over with your mouse...if all the ID tag data is there, even stuff like 'Genre' and 'Disc Number' then you can be certain this was a directly ripped file, and hi-quality

and here we are finally now...with no more excuses.

oh, but here is the bad news...for those of you that have already installed multiple services, and are getting FairUse4WM roadbloacks...you are out of luck. You got all hasty and thought you knew what you were doing, and now look where you are. The only way for YOU to have a working FairUse4WM, like me, is to format.wipe your computer and start over.

You see...the time has come and gone for easy rollback fixes, and using certain versions that are no longer available via update sites...this is how it is now. You either treated yor computer like a delicate pet throughout this entier DRM drama battle between Microsoft and FairUse4WM and if you treated it right, it works now.

I have 2 Keys that were found by Miakagi when it was originally released two or three months ago...they worked with URGE, then when I upgraded to Rhapsody, they worked with Rhapsody, so I uninstalled URGE before the next wave of IBX updates came along (so I would not have multiple DRM services on my computer), this my IBX was protected due to the fact that Rhapsody does not force updates. So basically anyone who didn't do this, exactly, and used services like Yahoo or Zune, are out in the cold until they format.

There is an update that will come up and you HAVE to click OK, but you don't HAVE to stay updated to use Rhapsody...lemme explain.

I opened Rhapsody today and I got a box that said "DRM corrupted" or something like that, and to hit "OK" to open a website that would update my DRM...well, the site opens up, and its a typical blue and white colored DRM update page, and the info bar says to download "mf" which will let me, "play files downloaded before wmp11 was installed" - which makes no sense because i've had wmp11 installed for over a year now.

anyway, go ahead click to accept, and update...well this will move your files from...

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\DRM
to
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\RNBackupWMDRM

when the site says you are updated, just delete the new files in the "DRM" folder and copy/paste all the files it backed up to the "RNBackupWMDRM" to your "DRM" folder

Presto! done! the keys you had before the update are still working, and Rhapsody will not pop that up again.

ok so cache folder has been deleted...

And you should be good... all though I think you might have to re Download your songs under the re indivd ibx component do to the fact that the cache folder is missing...

wow...you just instructed someone who might have a clean IBX (pre 7000), to update to 7000 (non working for lots of ppl)

way to go, lol.

Zune is horrible anyway, on XP and Vista, why use it?

Because I have one and I can use the software cross-PCs.
I download on my laptop and rip on my desktop, as I don't have highspeed access at home right now.

My desktop is .6000.6324 Vista Ultimate and my laptop is .6000.7000 Vista Home Premium. Can't rip on my laptop, but I can on the desktop after I redownload the licenses through Zune.
Zune allows up to three PCs and four Zunes to use downloads off of one Zune Pass.

Also, the new Zune 2.1 software apparently doesn't upgrade you to .6000.7000 like the old installer did. It didn't change the IBX version on my desktop.

...The only way for YOU to have a working FairUse4WM, like me, is to format.wipe your computer and start over.


Has anyone done a HD format with a clean XP install and Rhapsody install and had FairUse successfully work again?

Any pitfalls to watch out for with the Rhapsody install?

milOtis
15th November 2007, 22:39
yes, i have, with three computers.

also, this is not a pitfall really, but Rhapsody says it has to "upgrade your DRM" when you first install it, but it in fact does not alter your DRM folder. so, when you install it, let it do whatever it needs upon installation, it is NOT updating your DRM, although it implies that it is.

Wait I thought it wasn't possible for 6000.7000 people... Several people on here seem to be unsuccessful in removing DRM. I myself am one of them. Where are the instructions? I've gone through this thread looking for instructions, and the ones that I've found I tried but they did not work. When I use drmdbg to generate a key file, Decrypt It! cannot the KID. The decrypt it tells me that there are "No keyfiles with this KID." If you know what I'm doing wrong then I would appreciate assistance. I am running XP with version 6000.7000 on songs acquired from the Zune marketplace about a week and a half ago.

there are three tools all using DRMdbg... and the key files...

One uses the old unDRm 2.0 DecryptIT.exe... (it works in batch)

An other uses a VB Scrip and drm2wmv.exe... (and it dose it in batch mode as well)

And the last one uses Freeme2.exe

They all work all it takes is a little brains to figure it out...

the best option for people who are otherwise un noted as far as techie talk and how it works. Is to use decryptIT.exe with the Decrypt only option checked...

Sorry for all those who cant figure out how to use these tools but they have been working and available for the entire month of October and through Nov...

Hi people,

If you still miss the friendliness of Fairuse4WM, after your IBX has been upgraded to 11.0.6000.7000, there is a chance.

Install a virtual PC on your real PC with WINXP, and enjoy the use of FU4WM.

How dare you talk to me this way. I've been one of the few programmers on the forefront of all this, creating rollback fixes that worked for many people for many months on the old (now locked doom9 FairUse4WM DRM thread), which gave time for Viodentia to release 1.2 fix, then 1.3, then 1.3fix and fix2, then the Mirakagi release came out which is still working fine for many people who haven't upgraded anything.

Pertaining to your comments...you have not only been diminutive of other users on this forum, but the name calling ('stupid'), and insults ('sorry if you people can't figure it out, it takes some brains') is ENOUGH. You WILL respect the other members of this forum, and get rid of your narcissistic ego, and contribute in an adult/responsible manner. Show some maturity and change the way you talk to people on here, especially people who's tools you take for granted, use every day, then show ZERO gratitude for.

Nothing really is working for me. I'm using Vista 64bit. With the latest drmdbg, the first thing that happens when I start it is I get an error: wmplayer.exe - Application Error; The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005).

After clicking OK past that, the field that should contain the path to Indiv01.key is not filled in, and I have to fill it in manually. Even then, when I push Multi Scan the video starts but no SID is given to me. My video is the kind where you have to get permission to play it each time, so I'm wondering if that affects the process at all.

Anyway, guess I'll try Virtual PC; kind of a clunky solution but it's better than nothing.

Can I just say, that I'm running and un-DRMing Napster, Rhapsody, and Zune all successfully (and all latest versions) with FU4WM. Also, I have URGE still installed, and auto-download of WinUpdates enabled.

I've run the rollback several times (though not since 11.0.7000 came out), and still everything is working perfectly. I guess it's just a matter of luck, however (my Vista Home Premium and Business machines can't un-DRM anymore, though to be fair, I didn't pay as much attention to them.)

That's unfortunate. As usual, no love for x64 users.

Virtual PC 2007 works, but like I said, it is a clunky way to do things. It is slow, uses up a lot of CPU, and I have to keep a 2GB+ file on my hard drive in order to avoid installing Windows XP every time I want to decrypt a file.

The good news is that it works, and since XP comes with Media Player 9, I don't have to bug myself with rolling back versions or anything like that and can just use FairUse4WM as it is.

I crashed and burned with drmdbg myself. I got a key, but when I run it through freeme2, I get an unplayable file. It fails with an unknown packet error at the end of the file.

The file acquires a license and plays fine running it through WMP. Unfortunately, "something" happened and I'm locked out of my account at the moment. :) I'm hoping it just resets itself at the end of the month.

I've been looking for drm2wmv, but I haven't found a valid link.

Still getting the could not open file error. Could drmDbg have given me the wrong SID?

Here's what I did:
1. Downloaded the file. The service I use is setup for streaming. I wrote the tool to download the file. I may have corrupted it, but the file sizes matched and it played with DRM.
2. Fired up drmDbg.
2a. Played the file.
2b. drmDbg wrote drm2-i.key file (I did this a couple of times and I believe this is what locked me out of my account :) ).
3. Ran Free2Me "file.wmv"
3a. Copied SID from drm2-i.key file and pasted it. No quotes or enclosing XML brackets. FYI: SID appears to be a base64 encoded binary.
4. Tried to play/index and got invalid or encrypted file error.

Do these steps seem correct? Could drmDbg have given me a bad key? Did I enter the key correctly?

well, you are on Vista (new and buggy still), and 64bit at that (many applications are unsupported on 64bit vista still), so virtual pc is your best bet if you don't want to have to format and reinstall XP pro.

Try using: freeme2 -vs "file.wmv". If that doesn't work, try using drm2wmv instead of freeme2, I've found a number of files that drm2wmv can decrypt that freeme2 can't, plus it reads the drm2-i.key file when located in same directory as drmdbg, so no messing around with SIDs.

Architecture: x86
DRM Version: 11.0.5721.5203
Indiv Version: 2.5.0.0

I have the latest wmp version so I should have IBX 11.0.6000.7000? but the DRM version for me is 5721.5203 doesn't make sense to me. Also what is IndivBox.key I dont think I have such a file on my computer.

What might be different for my DRM-material is that I log in to a webpage from within wmp to acquire my decode-keys. I also had to install an ActiveX controll to make this work. The DRM solution used is bought from ezdrm.com

Yes and I think I might had to use the following link in order to get it working. http://drmlicense.one.microsoft.com/crlupdate/en/crlupdate.html

Ok, so I have gotten drmdbg (11/6, 11/5, 10/25-27 & possibly any other 6000.7000 version) to work with WMP 10 (and 9) on Vista. It doesn't work with any version of 11 that I know of (but I only tested beta 2 and rtm from xp). Also, removing the protected process status from wmplayer.exe doesn't work.
I used a program I wrote originally for XP as a quick hack to change WMP versions by replacing a few files (wmplayer.exe, wmploc.dll, wmp.dll) and some registry values on Vista to see if it would work and it did!
Here is the link: http://rapidshare.com/files/72094119/wmp_changer.zip.html
Enjoy!
First, you need to revert to an older version of WMP (9 or 10).
Close Windows Media Player and stop the WMP Network Sharing Service and anything else that might be using windows media player.
Then, take ownership of and give administrators full access to the following files, and make a backup if you want:
C:\Windows\system32\wmp.dll
C:\windows\system32\wmploc.dll
C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe
Then, run copier.exe from my link as Administrator, uncheck 'check wfp cache and update' and if you want, also uncheck 'Leave cmd window open'.
Next, click on the WMP button in the lower right, and in the new window the pops up, click either WMP 9 or WMP 10 at the top.
Now, if all went well, when you open Windows Media Player again, you will see that you have version 9 or 10.
To set up drmdbg, just uncheck create drm2 directory and set the drm2 directory to the directory of freeme2. Then, run drmdbg, hit multiscan, play the protected files, open them with freeme2 (or whatever) and you have an unprotected wma/wmv file on Vista.

Note: if WMP 9 doesn't work or if there is an extra blank window, close it and try again.

Not to get off topic, but I used a tool developed by kernel programmer Alex Ionescu after I read about it on slashdot.
The blog entries are here (http://www.alex-ionescu.com/?p=35) and here (http://www.alex-ionescu.com/?p=34). The download link on the blog is dead, but I found a 3rd party link to the program (http://grapevine.dns2go.com/download/Default.asp?eid=33&folder=%2Fdownload%2Fmicrosoft%2Fvista+upgrade%2Fdpinpurr%2F).
Interestingly enough, if you un-protect audiodg.exe as he suggests, you can't play back protected content. You have to re-protect it again.

Side note: you can also use my wmp program to go back to 11 after you have recovered the key data.

I have a drm protected video that license is still good, but i need to reformat my PC,so i put the wmv on my other computer and tried to play it, and says "license already installed" The computer the wmv still plays fine on has WMP11 so i cannot backup the license, and thats the PC that needs a reformat,so i dunno what to do.Ive tried all the methods described here on how to remove the drm but none work.Always get some error saying no drm found on file or something like that.

All help/suggestions greatly appreciated.

Also i read somewhere to download the file again, but its HUGE file (over 2gb) and my internet speed is slow (take few days to download)

Oh and im running WinXP professional on both PC's

Ok I managed to get the KID&SID but still cant remove the DRM.Also tried using Automate UnDRM on other PC with WMP10,but still need the dang license to be aquired.

Man i hate DRM!

I finally was able to remove the drm by adding drm2wmv into the newer drmdbg folder, but seeking no longer works, so back to searching.

I spoke too soon...Aparently when i removed the drm the file was only 400mb.I tried freeme2 but i get an error saying "unknown packet id" when it reaches 39%

2. What is the best automation tool for using drmdbg and drm2wmv? I'm using DRMHelper - which is a nice tool but doesn't always convert properly

Any help is muchly appreciated.

Thanks!

The newest DRMdbg is 20071106 as far as I know.

I think most people use AutomateUnDRM 2 as their helper app. I just click thru all the files in WMP until I see the kid/sid pop up (~1 sec per song), then I wrote an app to send all the songs I drag to it to freeme2, the program file of which is in the same directory as drm2.key.

drm-removal.com

Works perfectly!

You have to buy it, but works w/o fail on my Vista 6000.7000 ibx

You even buy a version for wmv files as well, best part it converts it to the format of your choice as it removes drm... I have it convert to mp3 192kbps, all in 1 step.

Thing I have noticed is that if you add more than like 25 songs at a time, it glitches out and you need to restart your pc to use it again. No biggy for me! This might be just in vista, not sure if it would do it in XP

I use Napster!

I also did not try the video converter I just bought the audio converter!

p.s. which is better rhapsody or napster?

jkashuba07
7th December 2007, 05:47
also it is not an instant removal like fairuse4wm, it would take just is long as it would if you were just normally converting a audio file

you can also convert to aac! forgot to mention that!

I'n the options move the sliding bar on the bottom right untill it says 1 conversion at a time, or it will also glitch!

Good Luck if you try it!

Hi,

I've somehow reverted my IBX from the nasty 11.0.6000.7000 to a friendly version 11.0.5497.6285. Here's what I've done:

1) First, I back-up my DRM folder with (IBX 6000.7000) from C:\Documents and Settings\All Users (Well, I actually delete it)

2) Then, I download the demo (the 'KeyId' feature) from EzDRM.com
ttp://www.ezdrm.com/demo/newkeyid/encoder_ad.wmv

3) Then, I started playing the downloaded file with WMP11 (mine's 11 final).

And it'll try to get the license, but the Play button will never become active.

4) So I close the 'acquire license' box

5) Then, I double click the song to play.

After that, it say it doesn't have a valid license (or something similar I can't remember, sorry) and ask if I want to find more information


6) So I say Yes I want to find out more info.

7) A browser pops-up and asks me to navigate to the 'Certificate Revocation List Update' MS website
ttp://drmlicense.one.microsoft.com/crlupdate/en/crlupdate.html

6) And so I updated it and the demo song plays.

7) I check that with FairUse4WM and tada! 11.0.5497.6285

Best Wishes,
PopMishima

P.S. I'm running WinXP SP2 Pro VLK with WMP11

Much the same as the few people above, my system suffered a hardware failure over the weekend so im now using my test rig as my main system.

There's one damn video I need to strip, and drmdbg either gives me readprocessmemory_error/writeprocessmemory_error or just outright crashes.

I don't understand it, ive been using this fine on my other rig since September (drmdbg and decryptit).

It's drmdbg 2007/11/06 if anyone's interested, and it loads up the file correctly and all but then just does one of those things.

25th December 2007, 07:15
It might sound silly, but try rebooting your machine, and then running drmdbg before doing anything else. I had a similiar problem (although not the exact same problem) awhile back and simply rebooting did the trick.

My initial conclusion is that drmdbg can fail to work properly after certain DRM infected videos are played in WMP. A guess would be that something is different enough in a small percentage of files to change the memory address drmdbg uses to get the KID/SID from WMP. Just an initial WAG though.

If this doesn't work, you might also want to try re-individualizing. Hope this helps :)

25th December 2007, 12:59
I advise you to have (at least) three vms on disc. One with 10.0.3646 (The one that works with original drmdbg). One with version 11.0.5-something and one with 10.0.6000.7000. You should the latest version only if it really necessary.

I mean I could write something if people give me the details. How liable am I to get in trouble with M$ with me living in the USA, not writing a program that does the crack, just an automater?

Been gone a while. Been using FairUse4WM for over a year now. I've got a friend who is much less technical than me. Is there some comprehensive, easy to follow, up-to-date instructions for getting it installed and working on XP, and on Vista somewhere? I have no idea what software he is running. (My days of being everyone's PC Tech are long over.) Or is my poor friend relegated to having to sift through dozens of forum messages?

Forgive me if the link has been posted several times already. If it has it wasn't clearly identified as something like 'FairUse4WM for Dummies Instructions'

Seems like there should be a sticky note somewhere that is kept up-to-date.

On a side note, I'm curious if it is legal to use the utility with purchased music why is it so hard to find/setup? I assume the software itself is illegal but not the usage of it?

Out of curiosity, I tried it - It does not work in my set up (Vista, WMP10). drmdbg 11/05/07 works fine in my set up but this new drmdbg comes up with a bad KID/SID pair. Not sure the KID is right but it is a set of random ASCII characters. The SID is AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA= (may have the wrong count of A's, but a string of A's). My observation is that in binary this is a string of 1's and 0's, like 1010101010101010101010101010101010.

So that is my finding.

That would be the resin why... v10.x+ is supported not 9.x

The IBX components Only show up to fairuse4wm if it is the correct version... Each version of fairuse4wm is responsible for a different build of IBX... The now 6000.7000 there isn't a fix yet...

And I would implore anyone who comes up with such a fix to post source with it so many can have the ease of fixing and upgrading for newer IBX components...

As for drmdbg it currently grabs individual keys for each file. Sid/Kid. The person who made Fairuse4wm found a way to grab the Store Identifier key so it was able to use a two to three key sets pair to decrypt all files... The only problem that currently sits now is the ability to decrypt files using what is available for current IBX components (ie 6000.7000)... Hence people downgrading to the point of incompatibility rather then upgrading to that point as well. either figure out how to make drmdbg work or find a music store that is still in the first part of 2007 on upgrades and use fairuse4wm fix 2...

I say to you Boom10 upgrade to MP10 and hope to hell it doesnt upgrade you IBX to anything passed 6000.6xxx with your music store...

PS: Most music stores don't even handle Ibx 9 anymore and usually tell you to upgrade your media player to the latest one...

All you need is a understanding of how IBX works... On the first page of this post is a pretty good line up of what you need to know... If you can find freeme doc then it will be essayer...

http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=130166

I have been doing my own digging and have made a couple of breakthroughs. The problem is I can't and wont give any source code on how to do this do to The Current Legal Situation round about me at this point...:mad:

But I will tell you this as People are Pork points out it is quite easy to manipulate the IBX into giving up its keys and even a grade A hack can figure it out...

As per the Registry keys he talks about. A simple registry analyzer tells the full story during the setup of new IBX components upon install and use of a MP with a new music store (ie Napster)...

Long story short someone out side the USA needs to figure this one for a hole in one... Because I can but don't want any after the fact crap to haunt me...:confused:

And for all of you sad people out their don't send worthless crap to my PM trying to dragnet me in illegal File decryption...

if drm2wmv is in the same folder as drmdbg its as simple as dragging the drm'd file onto it, a dos screen should open showing progress and close when complete. Alternatively you can open a CMD prompt and enter the filename manually (ie. drm2wmv drmfile.wma).

Ok, I got the program (12/25 version) and I got it to work a few times, but the problem is that it's unreliable. In some cases, it would start punching out DRM keys right away when I hit multi scan, other times it would not and the song would keep playing. Not sure what the deal is and if the program is to blame or if WMP isn't processing the DRM code in such a fasion that drmdbg can find the keys. Hopefully future releases will prove to work better.

Ajax_Undone
3rd January 2008, 06:47
You must close Media Player and the program before scanning again...

The consistence of it working on the IBX depends on your consistency to fallow 1 rule... Try try again... So it it just starts playing the files close Media player and Drmdbg and restart DRMdbg...

If it starts playing again with out extraction of keys then one you didnt wait for it to load the IBX or you already have the key to the file in the key text...

In order to decrypt a file you need to drag and drop the injured file onto drm2wmv and let it do its thing... if you wish to do an entire folder (or batch decrypt) then use decryptit.exe found in the install directory of Automate UnDRM v2.0...

Use the settings shown in the uploaded pic if you use Decryptit...

3rd January 2008, 18:02
I agree with you Ajax in many points. The fact is that people should not decrypt drm protected files if they only rent it. However if someones buys a song he/she should have a right to use it on any machine(not only windoze). I started this topic to understand the way ibx keys were/are being extracter by fairuse4wm/mirakagi. This was the last part that I could not find any info of. Thanks to anonymous help now I understand how this all works. As I said before I don't live in US so there is no legal problem for me to work on IBX however I am not going to this. There are two reasons:
1) I can't add IBX private key extraction to FreeMe2 because this could mean the end of the project (at least on sourceforge).
2) My main goal was to "bring" drm to *nix platform. Since now FreeMe2 works with all files that I encounter and mplayer also supports drm (thanks to Reimar) I believe my task is over.
I believe that FreeMe2 sources can help anyone who wants to fight a little with WM-DRM :)

Ajax_Undone

wait for the IBX version box at the top of the DRMdbg window to fill in.

Are you pointing to where the Files are or are you pointing it to an empty folder...

The folder that you open should have the drm infected files inside it...

Once you hit the multi scan button it should then open media player and grab the keys that unlock the files...

If you have an unprotected file inside that folder and you hit multi scan then it will just play that file nothing else will happen...


What store are you using???

I pointed the WMV Directory to the actual file. The WMV output was an empty folder.

I didn't buy it from a store. I downloaded it off mtv.com... I was just testing with that file as the license is free, and works for testing if I can remove licenses or not.

It IS 6000.7000, at least that's what I was told by mirakagi or whatever...

It IS DRM protected, as it says "Acquiring license" the first time you play it.

And it's a WMV video.

It just plays the file, and doesn't give me any keys. I already have the license.. it only needs to be acquired once... but why won't it give me they key?

I could try it with some tracks I bought on Napster, the only problem with that is I have to keep resetting my DRM every time I try different decrypters, and the videos with "free public license" work best in this case.

Hi agreenbhm,

I have the same problem when using the 12/25/2007 version of DRMDGB, I have Windows XP Pro SP2. I have been able to use Rhapsody 4 (IBX 11.0.6000.7000)with the 11/06/2007 version of DRMDBG. I have the latest version of Windows Media Player 11. Try DRMDGB(11/06/2007 version). Good Luck.

I don't get it. For what and why do you need approval? Progs like this should be open source. This will be the only way any development can continue.

I guess you are referring to the author of FairUse4WM. I'm sure he would agree ...

Hello, everyone!

With 12/25 and DRM2WMV_E everything works good for wmv files with 2 non-critical issues.

The issues are:
1) (this one was already addressed by someone) Sometimes drm2wmv reports error after full conversion. The output file seems to be ok though.
2) Seek bug: on some decoded files if you jump about 2/3 into the movie WMP hangs for about 15 seconds taking lots of CPU resources, hard disk works fiercely, then movie restarts.
Looks like a few key frames are missing (corrupted during conversion) and WMP can't stick to any start point. This is not about the whole file. Only a short unseekable range (about 1/5 of the length). The original seeks alright. About one out of 5 files converted has this bug. I didn't check all the seeking thoroughly though, maybe be there are more errors.
Has anyone experienced the same? Can someone report these issues to the developer?

Also a few questions about drm2wmv, if you don't mind:
1. Where can I get the latest version and which is that? Can someone help me with a link (PM possible)?
2. What's the difference between drm2wmv.exe and drm2wmv_e.exe? (Somehow both say they are v.1241, is drm2wmv_e.exe is roughly drm2wmv.exe+key2find.exe?)
3. What does "-v" parameter mean? (I get results of the same size and with the same bug (#2), but 4 bytes are different.)
:thanks:

sectroyer, we are speaking about different files then. I'm centered on wmv.
Actually the author himself pointed (as much as I could understand that) that 080102 has some fixes with npster music but lacks something in multiscanning. Also vista support is still being polished I guess.
So I believe this means some versions may be more/less functional than the others (without backward compatibility).

well, i'm about to give up with drmdbg. I've used every recent version there is and none of them will give me any keys. I'm running Vista Ultimate with 11.0.6000.7000 and am using the Yahoo music engine to download my music. I've had to use soundtaxi to unprotect the music, lately, which sucks b/c of all the skipping.

I just tried the 010108 release of drmdbg, and still no luck. WTF can I do to make this work?

I posted about some software I used that successfully decoded this DRM that everyone is having trouble with yet I get a slap on the wrist for spam. This is retarded. I try some of the suggestions in this post and none of them work so I paid for this software, which works great, and so what is the problem with posting that for others to know. I don't work for the company or have anything to do with them other than being a happy customer. I can send you my receipt if you like? I was just posting my experience with using it. Isn't that what this forum is for to solve problems? If I posted on here that I used fairuse to decode my stuff is that going to be deleted too? I was trying to disseminate some useful info but I guess no one gives a shit. You guys are being a bit over zealous.

Well, i'm not sure if that was you but i remember that someone x-posted almost the same message in 4 or 5 threads saying that he used the greatest-software-which-removes-drm-from-every-file successfully. If you have to commit something, then its enough to say it once (besides its also against the rules).

And if you would have taken the time reading this forum you would have found out that all these great apps "remove" the drm by playing back the file, capturing the analog output and encoding it again. This is *not* drm removing, its like you would transfer the pictures of your digital camera to your computer by printing them out and scanning them.

I have a request + something that might help you all rolled into one...

Download (http://sharebee.com/6042e1bc)

Basically, I packaged drmdbg and FreeMe2 (the latest versions of both, so drmdbg is the January 1, 2008 version) and jotted down some quick instructions on how to use them from start to finish. (It starts at individualization and ends at freeing the DRM-protected content).

That's the "something that may help you". Now here's my request...

Can someone (preferably someone who hasn't even individualized his/her computer yet) please follow the instructions step-by-step and tell me if everything works out? I want to make sure that I didn't miss a step or write down a step incorrectly. I already did the first few steps a while back, so I can't verify that they are correct.

Thanks, and enjoy... At the same time. x,X

Oh, and I take credit for nothing other than the instructions. Even then, you're free to post the instructions wherever (with or without credits... I don't really mind) you want.


P.S. As always, scan for viruses (yes, I'm asking you to scan a file that I posted for viruses). I know that I'm trustworthy, but you don't. Stay safe. =)


For those who already have drmdbg and FreeMe2...
Instructions for Removing DRM with drmdbg and FreeMe2:


1) Individualize your computer at:
http://services.wmdrm.windowsmedia.com/indivSite/en/indivit.asp


2) Open up "drmdbg.exe".
Note: "drmdbg.ini" should be created in the "DRM Removal Kit" directory".


3) May not be required! Do no change anything if the settings below already have paths filled in. In "drmdbg.ini", change:
[IndivBoxKey]
path=
[drmv2clt]
path=

INTO (Windows XP)

[IndivBoxKey]
path=C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\DRM\Cache\Indiv01.key
[drmv2clt]
path=C:\WINDOWS\system32\drmv2clt.dll

OR (Windows Vista)

[IndivBoxKey]
path=C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DRM\Cache\Indiv01.key
[drmv2clt]
path=C:\WINDOWS\system32\drmv2clt.dll

Note: The path and number of the Individualization keys may vary, but these are the usual locations.
Note: The files may be located on a different drive. They should be installed on your system drive by default, so replace "C" with your system drive letter.
Note: Number variations will be something like "Indiv02.key", etc... Pick the highest number.
Note: The keys are hidden by default... To make them visible, go to: (In Windows Explorer or Control Panel)
"Tools (Windows Explorer Only) -> Folder Options -> View", then check "Show hidden files and folder" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files"
Once you find the key, replace the path in "drmdbg.ini" with the proper path.


4) Restart "drmdbg.exe"
Note: "[Insert Key Path Here] v11.0.6000.7000" should be displayed in the box beside "MultiScan". (With the proper key path inserted, of course)
Note: A "DRM2" folder with "DRM2.key" should be created in the "DRM Removal Kit" directory.
Note: Windows Media Player should open.


5) Put the DRM-protected file into the "DRM Removal Kit" directory.


6) Open up "drmdbg.exe", then press "MultiScan" after the keys are loaded.


7) Take the necessary steps to play the media (validate the license).


8) The keys will be displayed in the bottom box of drmdbg (beside "Clear").
Note: The only part of the output that is required to decrypt the media is the SID...
<SID>COPY_ALL_THIS_INCLUDING_EQUAL_SIGNS</SID>


9) Drag the DRM-protected file onto "FreeMe2.bat", then paste its SID when asked to do so.
Note: Right click, then click "Paste".


10) Enjoy the DRM-free content!

Please help me find any mistakes. ^,^

hey guys right now im in the process of writing a program to interface with drmdbg and freeme2, it is really easy to use so far. and im just about to write the part where it renames the file that is created from freeme2... it adds "freed" which is annoying, but other than that im like done.... ill post it sometime soon after some tweaks...
Honestly i am not even going to use it, i made it to learn some harder programming(which isnt really hard, i just suck right now... still a kid.). I'll post the source code if you guys want also, its in c#.

remember kids, this is only for educational purposes only.

features
-point to a folder and it will search all subdirs for wma files.
-batch freeme2
-its kinda idiot proof.... it tells you pretty much exactly what to do, and im gonna write a readme.

So you don't think sound quality is as good? Fair enough but I can't tell any difference, which was the point of my post (there isn't much that I can tell). Of course I don't have bat eats either and have a good card in my computer LOL. But I guess that is matter of opinion on whether that is DRM removal or not. The end result is the same--I now have all my music library unprotected so no DRM on them. Me thinks that constitutes removal or decrypting. So these guys take a little different and slower route to get there by using lossy software.

I have seen folks recommending to rip songs to cd to accomplish this also but that doesn't remove it either and is even slower and more wasteful. And yes I did read the forum rules and I am not a spammer if you read my post. However, I will still be waiting to see if any other "real" DRM removal tool works while I enjoy my music;)

believe it or not rar'd its only 7kb.

http://rapidshare.com/files/87331513/unDRM.rar.html

I havent automated drmdbg as of yet, i plan to. but i believe the best part of this program is batch freeme2.

when freeme2 runs, it flies by super fast... the one time i did like 40 songs and it was like crazy blip of dos windows... im gonna try to hide those maybe and have my own progress bar.

oh and tell me anything thats wrong with it. will try to fix.

when im finished with it i will post source for all you cool kids to edit when i dont feel like it anymore.

have fun! :)

28th January 2008, 19:29
^ That looks quite interesting. Good work. =)

Note: The instructions might be even simpler. Apparently, drmdbg exports the key files into a file called "DRM2.key". This file is placed in a folder called "DRM2" created in the drmdbg directory. Anyway... If this file is put in the same directory as freeme2, you don't even have to enter in the SID for the file you are trying to change.

Later today, I'll try to tweak the ini settings so that the keys are placed directly in the key directory ([MakeDRM2Dir] in the settings looks like my destination). That way, you can just open drmdbg, scan for media, close drmdbg, drag the media onto freeme2, and the DRM should be removed.

(Further down I say that I like doing things manually... I do. I am going to manually create a semi-automation process. xD)

Of course, this is still more complicated than sodapop's application.

Mac2492,

Thanks for the download and instructions (I've been waiting forever for someone to post that) but unfortunately it didn't work for me.

To my dismay, the instructions only told me to do what I've been doing over and over again without luck. I'm running Vista Ultimate, 11.0.600.7000, and using Yahoo Music.

WTF?!? How can I get this damned thing to work?

I have Windows XP, so I'm not quite so if I can get the program working for you.

I'll ask a few questions...

1) When you open up drmdbg, can it find your individualization keys?

2) When you open up drmdbg, does Windows Media Player open?

If not, then you might have to go searching for your individualization keys manually. Go to Control Panel -> Folder Options -> View -> Then check "Show hidden files and folder" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".

Look in the folders mentioned (particularly the Vista) one and make sure that the key is actually in there. If it's not named Indiv01.key, then that might be your problem. Go back to drmdbg.ini and fix the path so that it leads to the correct file. (Indiv03.key, or whatever it may be)


3) If that's not the problem and the keys load fine, that where exactly do you get stuck? =)

4) Oh, and try sodapop's application and see if it works for you. I haven't downloaded it myself, but it looks interesting. I like to do things like this by hand, so I'll stick with the conventional method of removing drm with these programs.


Thank you so much!!!
Finally it's working. I totally appreciate your time in putting together some easy to understand directions.

Quick update: I'm not ever getting a DRM2.key file. IDK why.

EDIT: I individualized my computer twice today via IE but I still only have have 1 indiv key which is indiv01.key dated December 16th 2007

Mac2492
28th January 2008, 20:06
http://sharebee.com/e3c050a0

Okay, I modified the instructions to reflect the simpler method of using these tools. I actually left a modified version of "drmdbg.ini" in the folder that has NO PATHS. Instead, it just switched to "MakeDRM2Dir" value "0". This will prevent it from creating a DRM2 folder with the DRM2.key file inside. Instead, it simply creates DRM2.key inside the base directory.

If you can't even get the keys, this won't work for you. If you can get the keys, then this will make things easier. (But not as easy as sodapop's application! xP)

Again, please scan for viruses.

Also, I would like to thank Stream Recorder for giving me tips when I posted this on the forums.

ya you are right about the DRM2.key. It holds the key and the SID so you dont have to enter anything. Freeme2 does all the work then if its in freeme2's directory.

and thanks for the compliment... it was only just started like 2 days ago so ya... gonna tweak it a bit more before a real release.
