Secure Mobipocket Decoder v0.3

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...

The URL is: http://aenea.xs4all.nl/

The readme does not have a suffix. I assume it is a script?

That is possible, yes. Maybe in a future version...

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.

You can also use the free Mobipocket ebook creater which can create DRM'd and DRM-less ebooks...

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...
