DRM got you down? Have songs on YOUR iPod that you paid for that you can’t listen to because the library got all screwed up? Well there is a new answer out there for you, if you are willing to do a little work with cygwin and python.
UPDATE: For a Windows C++ Port See this Post –>How To – iTunes Downloads DRM hack<–
The “app” is called QTFairUse6. And here’s the latest on hymm-project.org (the first DRM ripper for iTunes remember? Hymm?) from their forums.
Sort of a port of the original QTFairUse to iTunes 6 using the excellent pydbg package by Pedram Amini.
pydbg and ctypes packages (included)
Supported iTunes versions: 6.0.4-6.0.5
1) Start iTunes
2) Start QTFairUse6.py.
4) Play your protected track(s) in iTunes. Each track will be written into a separate dump_NN.aac file.
5) To make them playable in winamp, convert the raw streams to ADTS using FAAD:
faad.exe -a output.aac dump_NN.aac
That pretty much says it all. If you have the time this looks like you can strip the DRM and have a file that isn’t corrupted so badly that it will not play on later versions of iTunes, you know the ones that they will release to try and stomp this app out of existence. However, from what I can tell, this app and process will make any attempts to do so by the iTunes moot, because you are generating a brandnew music file with all new encoding and compression. Hooray for the hackers, may they keep technology moving forward for years to come.
