Getting the database password is the easy part. Fixing the tool is not as simple as changing it because they started encrypting the RSA keys.

Do you think someone would release a new ripper for the update?

Yeah, but notifying the author is easier said than done. He's anonymous, there is no way to contact him.
I can think of several ways to capture the new password, but to be honest my programming skills aren't up to scratch so I don't want to start messing with the code.

Nothing. Read a few posts back. With the most recent update BW has changed the password for the database file which contains all encryption keys.

Damn, so there's nothing we can do other than screencapping the entire book? Not even hacking the sample?

Let's remember to always spoiler download links folks, and also not to quote a post with an unspoilered link, (it makes for slightly more work for me.)

I've bought the first Lost Universe novel and I need it in ebook format and pdf, can you guys help me out here. I'm using the bookwalker app to view it in the meantime. Here's a link to the contents folder, can you guys do anything with it?

good to know, at least I didn't pay for it.

Here's the link for 1.2.1, they haven't delete it yet.

Yes they did delete it. I get a 404 error every time I open that link. But I know what's causing the ripper to hang up now. It's the new database file with all the keys. They've changed the password, or encryption algorithm somehow, so when the tool injects the pass it returns an error of object not found because it can't locate they keys.

Whenever I try to run the bookwalker ripper I get the following error


Unhandled Exception: System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeException: The path is not val
id. Check the directory for the database. [ Path = C:\Users\user\AppData\Roami
ng\BOOKWALKER_for_Windows\bwdb.sdf ]
at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeConnection.Open(Boolean silent)
at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeConnection.Open()
at Bookwalker.SystemInfoRepository.connect(String path)
at Bookwalker.Program.Main(String[] args)

I upgraded from version 1.2.1 to 1.2.2 and the new version no longer uses bwdb.sdf
If there's anyone here who uses bookwalker and hasn't updated to 1.2.2 can I please have your bwdb.sdf database files?

Today I have registered new account by sokuyomi to get free point, and notice that the image size is only 720x1024, while the same book at ebookjapan is 1072x1600. Is there any option at sokuyomi to get bigger image?

As far as I know, no.

Anyway, I have a new question about the gem for Jump+.
Is version 0.3.1 still working for Jump+? I got an error message like "false false <content id> exists. Downloading stopped".
Does someone have same issue as me?

This issue was caused by bugs, he released new version today and it works well.
Also, OMD is updated.

Hi

I'm struggling to rip from the Bookwalker app. I have bought a manga volume legally and do not intend to put it up on the internet. The problem is I don't like the Bookwalker app at all (I use the PC app). I would rather be able to read them on the Cover app. I tried getting the pictures from the Roaming Appdata folder but I get a message saying the pictures are either damaged, corrupted or too large. I have seen links on here to guide me to  progrms but none seem to even load up for me. Is there any way to do this?

Or, better still, what do I need to open up a nw file?

Sorry everyone who expected it, no release this weekend - I ran into trouble again. I assumed the encryption is going to be standard AES CBC, but it turns out when I decrypt the files, every second block turns into garbage while the rest are fine. Either their algorithm is modified or they use some obscure mode. Gotta investigate further.

I'll just write a new one (no estimate on when it's going to happen). On the other hand I know almost enough about honto to write a ripper, expect it soon unless I hit a wall again.

Wow, you are awesome! I can't wait. Well, good luck.

The tool won't work with the latest version of the neowing viewer because they updated it to one that uses a different DRM. For some reason it stopped working with the old one as well, but I don't have VS installed currently so I can't investigate. I'll just write a new one (no estimate on when it's going to happen).

Actually, this one inspired me to make something of my own.
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!
The usage is pretty straightforward - first you need to install their reader, log in with your account and download some books you purchased (please note that the books you have in your library but haven't downloaded to your hard drive won't show up on the list). Launch the application, choose an account and the book you want to decrypt. The contents should land it the dec folder. It doesn't require Internet access in case you're paranoid.

Tried and didnt manage to get it to work(maybe trouble with my pc??). Is there any way to rip off bookwalker easily for a noob who does not know command lines, programming etc etc?

Use Online Manga Downloader, select Manual > NicoNico E-Books. You'll have to enter your email and pass.
Select a book first, since that page is the series page

use baidu search

Hey, man. I am NOT noob. I did it for moons and moons and moons before you told me "use baidu search".
I couldn't find any clue about that script even though I tried searching it as much as possible.
Here was my last hope. Finally, I did not get anything from here. hahaha.
