Okay, I've got it. Only they've changed the system for novels (include LN) from fixed-layout to reflowable ebooks.
It doesn't matter for people who buy only comics (manga) on eBJ.




but does matter for people buying ln's...
it seems they've also tampered with the image size of the illustrations. will the size be back to original in case ln's become ripable again?

OMD doesn't recognise the url for the new book, older books will still download fine, but the one I bought today without keydata=xxxx in the url won't download at all

So what does the new url look like?

For me, it's still working on eBJ. I am sure they've upgraded their viewer to ver.1.2.0.0 and changed something, but you just wait around 30-40 sec. after clicking a button for download of the OMD and then it will start downloading the images. 
you don't seem to read what others are writing, pal. sure, it works for older items, but not for recently (i.e. today) purchased articles. the link in the reader is missing the "keydata=...." part which is somehow used for recognizing that it's from ebj which doesn't work anymore without it.

OMD Doesn't seem to work with eBookJapan anymore, I can download previously purchased items, but when I tried to download something purchased today (with the gecko hack version posted earlier in the thread) it doesn't detect that it's ebj, it might have something to do with the newer url not having a keydata=XXXXX etc part in it, but I'm not sure how to work around this.

Same here. Fortunately, this occurred after I got what I needed.

You're looking for the POST requests, not actual images, they've got imgDeliver?gcode in, copy the responses and then do what mdmdmd said with the base64 decoding

Ah, I'm stupid. I overlooked the obvious no-cache-revalidate properties. Thanks to both of you.


By the way, I forgot that you need to right click and decode before saving, sorry.

Images are base64 encoded, you just need to capture them from web traffic (using Fiddler for example, right click save response body) and decode using something like this site: http://www.motobit.com/util/base64-decoder-encoder.asp


I tried that earlier, but it seems to only captures the GUI images (back, etc.).

Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!

Any way to rip that? Looks like it might be encrypted Java, as several Java scripts are run from this site when you open the browser.

So even I purchased some book from bookwalker.
It's not safe to rip anyway.
Am I right?

It's useless. Once you update to the newer version bookwalker will automatically delete your bookwalker roaming folder and all its contents.
1.2.3 needs to have it's licenses renewed regularly, so even if you're running 1.2.3 you may not be able to rip the books unless it was downloaded literally the day before 1.2.4 came out. GIVE UP and wait until a new ripper comes up. If you find a way to circumvent the ban on users with modified apps DO NOT post it, japs are keeping a close eye on this forum and it will spread and bookwalker will make a new countermeasure. Yes there are ways to avoid getting caught. that is all you need to know. No don't PM me asking how. I will block you outright.

It probably won't help, the files that would be served, even if you could download with 1.2.3, will be encrypted in a way that 1.2.3 wouldn't be able to open it

I 'upgraded' to 1.2.4 before finding this thread. Will downgrading allow me to extract already downloaded books? If so, does anyone have a 1.2.3 version of the installer I can downgrade to until a patch comes for bookrunner? I don't want to do a restore just for that.

I have a copy of the older version, let me test and see if this will work.

They appear to have changed the encryption scheme, a 1.2.3 install had an error when trying to read the files from a 1.2.4

Hey Everyone,

I was curious if anyone has had any issues downloading new books with 1.2.3? I bought the latest famitsu yesterday, signed in to 1.2.3 and when I tried to download it I was greeted with an error stating it wouldn't download. I ignored the prompt to update to 1.2.4

I hoped on a VM, installed the latest version, and it worked fine so my account isn't locked.

Any suggestions?
