Hi there!

Are you like me? Looking at all those titles available at ebook stores only available in Mobipocket format and you're not sure if it's wise to buy them? Because, well, what if they go bankrupt, or offline again or, even worse, your reader doesn't support the format natively?

Well, I say: GO BUY THOSE NICE BOOKS, LOTS OF THEM :)

Why? Read more here: link removed

PS. If the above URL doesn't work then the DNS hasn't been changed yet by your ISP. You can try this one instead (same site, different alias): link removed

AdamB Edit: The links have been removed at the request of iRex as the program uses copyright code from the iLiad's viewer.

There's a new verion, v0.4 which does not contain any copyrighted code. As a result you do need to get hold of the cf-card-reset file from iRex...

It works with DRMless MobiPocket books.

It works with DRMless MobiPocket books.

I think the question was more whether it could turn a DRMed file into a non-DRMed file, rather than output either as HTML.

And I imagine the problem is that the util is *probably* (I've not looked at it too hard, I might well be wrong) just the innards of the normal reader application, which decodes the files into the HTML they contain. In that case, doing a conversion or choosing formats isn't going to be easy - you might as well reprocess the HTML into something directly yourself.

Yes, but it only outputs html right now. I want non DRM mobipocket format because both the Cybook and the Iliad have the requisite reader.

And if you want to read a DRM'd Mobipocket ebook on a device which supports the format, why convert it at all?

I have an iLiad and I do convert my ebooks, but just for savekeeping, when I read them I just put the DRM'd version on the iLiad...

I want to buy ebooks now, and read them on a Mobipocker reader that I might buy 3 years from now. The format is nothing special, but it works.

When I asked you to do the output, I assumed that you bypassed the DRM and exported the html as two separate steps. If that is wrong, then I withdraw my request. I did not intend to cause you more work.

It's okay, my program just decrypts and extracts the files contained in the mobipocket ebook. If it's HTML you get a .html file, if it's text you get a .txt file, etc. But to be honest, I converted many of them and all contained html and images...

Nine times out of ten: YES! Well, at least for the books I bought! And yeah, BoB is kinda cheap too, but you can shave off a few more cents :)

An example:

http://www.booksonboard.com/index.php?BODY=viewbook&BOOK=11953
https://secure.paperbackdigital.com/t_ebook.php?s=3&c=141&tid=19050

or:

http://www.booksonboard.com/index.php?BODY=viewbook&BOOK=106745
https://secure.paperbackdigital.com/t_ebook.php?s=3&c=136&tid=15742

And then there's the rebate thing making your next order even cheaper...

Aenea,

Can you clarify something, please:

Is this being done using iRex's source code for the iLiad MobiPocket reader? If so, do you have their permission to use it in this way - ie, is this a 100% legal conversion tool?

I'm not asking whether or not the use of the tool is legitimate, but whether or not the tool itself is.

Hi Aenea, you just saved my life. I purchased some books from Mobipocket.com website, and after the recent crush of the website, I couldn't get into the website even after the new password process since I don't have access to my email account I've with them. Mobi people didn't resolve the matter yet after several repeated request. Your program helped me to get the access to the books. DRM books are so troublesome! I remeber Richard Stallman's warning not to buy DRMed ebooks unless you crack the DRM. I definitely want the books 'free as is freedom'. I don't my freedom to read a book that purchased at stake.

While I congratulate Aenea for his programming skills, I'd like to urge everyone to respect other people's copyrights. This said, we received word from iRex that the Mobipocket Decoder is in violation of the copyright laws that protect the source codes both from iRex Technologies and from Mobipocket.

As a consequence, we were forced to remove the links. Thanks for your understanding.

We would like to stress that the usage of the iRex Technologies and Mobipockets JAR files is in violation of copyright laws.

I can understand people's objection against DRM and I might have my own personal opinions about it but it does not warrant anybody to violate copyright laws nor will it do any good to those involved.

Thanks for understanding

No, you misunderstand me. What I meant was that MobiPocket's code for their reader obviously quite legitimately "unlocks" the book so it can be read by the devices that the file is keyed to. That code clearly does not violate the DCMA. It's only a DCMA violation if a 3rd party writes code to bypass somebody else's DCMA.

If a legitimate iLiad owner used a program "sat on top of" MobiPocket's code, but directed the unlocked output to a file rather than to the screen, I suspect that would be "legit", provided that one was fully licenced to use the original code (ie as an iLiad owner).

I could of course be wrong :).

nekokami
09-05-2007, 03:04 PM
HarryT, I'd be very surprised if you're right on this. There have been quite a few well publicized cases recently where media publishers have gone after people who made "unlocking" tools available to break various forms of DRM. I've picked up a pretty strong impression that in the US, distributing the tools themselves is illegal under the DMCA. I don't agree that this should be the case, but I think that's the way the US law reads currently.

(Isn't it ironic that we should be having this somewhat role-reversed conversation?)

Yes, it's possible, I almost finished a version which doesn't need to be patched and to test it out I wanted to download the cf-card restore image, but they smartly moved it behind your iRex account, so only people with an iLiad can download it!!!

Never mind though, people know it can be done, if something happens to mobipocket I can put it out there again. Besides, before that happens I will have finished my next project which might be able to do the same :)

To answer your question: NO, I did not use their source code. I used their compiled code, wrote a couple of utilities in C to change references and other stuff in the class files and used a decompiler. Then I had to change lots of code by hand to get it to recompile again and spent a lot of time analyzing the code so I could use it for my purposes...

In the future I will write something which doesn't need any of their code, in binary or otherwise...

As far as I know it's basically the same as the DMCA: It's prohibited to circumvent copy protections and offer software which does so.
One of the bad side effects is that it became impossible to legally watch copy protected DVD's with free software (almost every DVD is copy protected with CSS). Of course I still watch DVD's on my Linux system, although it's not legal :shocked3:

The main reason I hate DRM is:
1. I buy the movie/book etc and want to use any of my own devices.
2. Too many times the service closes down and most drm ends up locked for ever. I never ever ever agree to a expiration timer on my stuff.
Ofcourse, if there was a month timer on an ebook but it is just 1 dollar, ok I choose that.
I am very much interested in Mobipocket, but I am jittery about the DRM versions due recent incidents. So this software will be great. I am looking forward to a full easy to use version to back up DRM mobipocket into non DRM (or to read it on any other device or reader, e.g. FBreader).
So..attagirl!

Here's a tool I wrote a while ago for myself which does not use any of Mobipocket's code. Python implementation is not too fast but gets the job done. Was planning to use it for adding secure mobi support to FBReader once I get around to porting it but I guess the cat is out of bag now...

Right now it only decrypts. I do have an implementation of Mobi Huff decompressor but there's some bug in it which causes wrong output at the end of decompressed text... If anyone is willing to debug it, I'll send the source.

This failed for me on on Harvard Classics, Vol. 10: Wealth of Nations (http://www.mobipocket.com/en/eBooks/BookDetails.asp?BookID=36213), which costs $0.99. I don't think the DMCA applies, since it is hard to argue that this book is copyrighted. The conversion completed, but MobiPocket's Windows Reader v 6 crashes when opening the out.mobi file. It also still displays as junk when opened by FBReader.

By the way, MobiPocket PID's don't always have "$" as the 8th character. A modified version that discarded the last 2 characters out of 10 and ignored the "$" worked for me even on a PID without the "$".

I was able to get v0.4 working under Linux, but not under Windows XP.

If there was no prospect of a solution free of MobiPocket code, then the next obvious step would be to add a simple GUI interface that accessed the existing run.bat script to make it easier to use. This would not help with finding the MobiPocket Java files though.

Since there is a good chance that someone will come up with a stand-alone program to crack MobiPocket files, I suggest waiting a while to see what becomes available.

The run.bat is for windows and the run.sh is for Linux... You have to run it from the command-line though...

1) Extract the mp-0.4.zip (or mp-0.3.zip) to C:\mp
2) install Sun's Java JRE (-> java.sun.com)
3) Start menu->Run->cmd.exe
4) C:
5) cd \mp
6) run.bat <prc file> <your PID> <output dir>

<output dir> only wit 0.4 not 0.3...

So the next question is where are these files? I have no Linux experience and the following directions is where I am thrown. I believe it is for linux so what is the equivalent for Windows? The directions are:

Mount the file app.image as a filesystem image: sudo mount app.image /mnt -o loop
- Copy the needed jar files: cp /mnt/home/intent/*.jar /usr/bin
- Unmount: sudo umount /mnt
- Unzip mp.zip
- Copy run.sh and decoder.zip to /usr/bin

If you have put the script and/or the decoder.zip/jar files not in /usr/bin, you will have to change the run.sh script file.

Simple answer: there are none, not easy ones any way. The program will work under windows if you manage somehow to get the missing files. I'm sorry I can't give them to you. You might ask someone else though... ;)

Also, the run.bat has a little mistake, change the part that reads:
irex.jar:MobipocketCoreReader.jar:decoder.zip
to:
irex.jar;MobipocketCoreReader.jar;decoder.zip

I just ordered an iLiad, so I don't have direct experience yet, but if you have an iLiad I think the easiest way to get the needed .jar files is to copy them from /home/intent on the iLiad to (say) a USB stick on the iLiad. Then move the USB stick to your PC. This way there is no need to go through the mount/unmount step (which I assume is only needed for non-iLiad Linux machines). Then:

1) Extract the mp-0.4.zip to C:\mp
1a) Edit run.bat (change ": " to ";")
1b) Copy the iLiad .jar files from USB stick to C:\mp
2) install Sun's Java JRE (-> http://www.java.com/getjava/)
3) Start menu->Run->cmd.exe (or Start menu->Accessories->Command Prompt)
4) cd C:\mp
5) run.bat <prc file> <your PID> <output dir>\

End the output directory name with the directory delimiter ("\" on Windows).

If you are new to cmd.exe, note that <tab> will complete a filename (or a partial filename) if you have typed enough letters to uniquely identify it and the arrow keys will bring up previous commands and allow you to edit them.

If you have an iLiad, you can download mrxvt and run the following command.

Be sure to note the spaces.

To copy java files to your USB key:

cp /home/intent/*.jar /mnt/usb/

To copy java files to your SD/MMC card:

cp /home/intent/*.jar /mnt/card/

To copy java files to your CF card:

cp /home/intent/*.jar /mnt/cf/

I got the files off of my iLiad thanks to Adam. I had to get the shell hack and mrxvt then install etc. The terminal window is so small I had to use my magnifying glass to make sure I was typing correctly. So now I will try to run the decoder and I will let you know.

For most purposes, you can use Mobipocket Decoder Tool (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20341) instead.

Googling mobidedrm now finds many copies of the file, but DarkReverser's WebLog (http://darkreverser.wordpress.com/2008/02/13/new-blog/) is the closest reference to the original (look at its most recent comments).

Simple answer: there are none, not easy ones any way. The program will work under windows if you manage somehow to get the missing files. I'm sorry I can't give them to you. You might ask someone else though... ;)

Also, the run.bat has a little mistake, change the part that reads:
irex.jar:MobipocketCoreReader.jar:decoder.zip
to:
irex.jar;MobipocketCoreReader.jar;decoder.zip

Hi Illiad gurus, I'm an Illiad newbie, I'm researching about Java Illiad SDK. However, I have not bought an Illiad yet. I intend to discovery the SDK before buying one. Could you please send me the link to download these files: irex.jar:MobipocketCoreReader.jar:decoder.zip:book 2::thanks:
