im sure im missing something so if someone could give me a step by step on how to use calibre to explode a drm free mobi i would really appreciate it.
If you set a directory in debug, when you convert a mobi file to any other format you will find the unpacked html in the directory you indicated in debug.

Alternatively this might help.

I'm not familiar with the mobi2oeb plugin but the latest version of mobiunpack (updated in April 2010) is attached to this post. I believe you need to install python 2.6.5 to run it.

That's the full extent of my ignorance, I hope this info is along the line of what your interested in.
