GUI removal request

Since this is now a VFDecrypt page can we remove the links to the GUI's? --GreySyntax 22:15, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

but they are part of VFDecrypt they all use the same code and it will help new people who don't know how to Decrypt --liamchat 22:36, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
Decrypting the filesystem from a command-line interface is simple; VFDecrypt only needs three parameters to decrypt it. I think multiple GUI programs (let alone one) is quite unnecessary for that. I will most likely remove them over the weekend. (Before this goes any further, I feel obligated to mention this: get into a fight now, and you'll get ban-hammered.) --Dialexio 23:22, 10 November 2010 (UTC)
Still, some people dont have terminal access on mac and a gui for mac is good as it doesn't require terminal access to run a cmd-line program from a gui... --5urd 01:16, 11 November 2010 (UTC)
I agree with removing the big fat table with all useless infos about these tools. If really necessary we can still add a section with "other tools" or so. What I miss here are links to download the Windows exe and more deeper infos. BTW: Now we can change back all links that are now pointing to the keys page. -- http 01:36, 11 November 2010 (UTC)


Hi, I just tried this again after a long time (on Windows 7-64). I used the following command:

vfdecrypt -i "c:\temp\ATVtest\038-0955-007.dmg" -k "f607711d4db94bba7a4866f095aed082c8485bfbcd0f411f1e65158f585915edd5cfeec1" -o "c:\temp\ATVtest\output.dmg"

and I just get

Must specify one of -k or -p
Incorrect arguments.
Usage: vfdecrypt -i in-file [-p password] [-k key] -o out-file

This file is from DurangoTide 8F305 (Apple TV 2G). I tried with/without quotes, changing the order, leaving -o part away, ran as Admin, etc, all without luck. Anything obvious what am I doing wrong here? --http 15:55, 14 May 2012 (MDT)

Try using iDecrypt --rdqronos 19:19, 14 May 2012 (MDT)
Or iDecryptIt --5urd 19:53, 14 May 2012 (MDT)
Actually I don't want to use other tools, I want to find the problem. Or is there a known problem with vfdecrypt tool? --http 23:12, 14 May 2012 (MDT)
Ok, found it, thanks to @djayb6. You have to leave away all spaces. I'll add this info to the main page. --http 13:43, 15 May 2012 (MDT)


VFDecrypt seems to be broken since iOS6.0. As a replacement, the dmg.exe tool can be used. Can anybody with background infos document this? What has changed exactly that broke VFDecrypt? -- http 18:58, 14 November 2012 (MST)

I've looked into this and found nothing. It might be cygcrypto, not VFDecrypt itself.
