Hak.5 ~ View topic – Noobs Guide To Pandora’s Rip Hack

If you haven’t heard of this yet, well now you have:

First of all Before you do anything.
1. Make sure you are using latest Java.
2. Have FireFox
3. Windows Xp

The latest stable version (BETA version 7.3.1) can be found here:

Now make a new folder on your desktop name it “Pandora”
Put the file in that folder and extract it in there. Now go back to your desktop and right click Pandora Folder and click “cut”

Right Click Start. Go to Explorer then Local Disk (C: ) or just C:

Now to the right you will see a list of folders and junk just ignore it. Right click in a white area and press “Paste” You will notice your folder is there.

Now minimize that and go to Start/Run and type cmd then press ok.

A black screen should show up (this is your Dos).
Type in “cd c:\pandora” (Without Quotes)

Now type “java -jar pandora.jar 8085” (Without Quotes)

A blue screen should show up saying something about “Now were ready to rip Mp3’s” something like that.

Now Minimize that and everything else. Open up Firefox and type this exactly: “http://localhost:8085” (Without Quotes)

When done correctly it will take you to Pandoras website along with Pandora hack mixed in.

Now just do normal Searching of your music and it will take 10 – 20 seconds depending on your Net Connection. All Music will be saved in your Pandora folder you made.

When your listening to a song and you don’t like it and switch to another song make sure that it doesn’t say something like “fetching ID3 information and tagging MP3 for artist *** song ***….” Or else everything will crash and you will need to redo everything again. So just wait untill it says “MP3 tagged and saved:
C:\Pandora\Documents and Settings***DesktopMusic\mp3\***\***.mp3”

Instalation Guide:

Unzip everything to the same directory (“C:\Pandora” for example) and then run the pandora.bat file. You may need to edit the pandora.bat file to point to your browser location (if it is non-standard)

You can specify a port (80 is the default) if 80 is being used by launching pandora.bat with a single parameter (i.e., pandora.bat 8888) to specify the port desired.

This is known to work on Mas OS X using the script. You must set the permissions of the file to make it executable and the iTunes stuff does not work on Macs.

I discovered a problem with the ITunes integration, it appears as in some systems you must have a copy of the jacob.dll in your system32 directory or a java runtime exception is sometimes thrown.To resolve this problem:
1) copy the jacob.dll file from the ../pandora/install/bin/ directory
2) paste the file into your systems C:\WINDOWS\system32 directory.
3) restart pandoras jar
4) the ITunes option should work now Very Happy

There is also a file called in the pandora folder. You MUST edit this file to change the default save location for your mp3 files. Here is a sample configuration:

#uncomment the following line to set your preferred storage dir – u can change at at runtime if u want

If you have Flash 9 and want to uninstall it and install Flash 8:
You can download Flash Player 8 HERE

But first you have to unistall Flash Player 9 by downloading THIS

It gets better:

Single Click USE

First create a batch file.

1) From Windows open Notepad (or another text editor) and type the following
cd c:\pandora
start java -jar pandora.jar 8085
cd c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\
start firefox http://localhost:8085

2) Save the file as something like pandora.bat. I saved in my c:\pandora subdirectory, but you can save it anywhere.

3) You can execute the file by double clicking on it from Windows. You can create a copy on your desktop or on your start menu for easy access

Now Go out there and be somebody.

NOTE: You have probably learned alot just by doing this. Hack to Learn.
