Just to let everyone know - current cracking methods have (pretty much) been patched.
@Datapaw pointed this out to me and encouraged me to investigate so thanks to him. Please note he's not the original DataPawWolf
The reason for this is - it seems the IP ban is much more restrictive now, after attempting to crack a very small number of accounts (as low as 25)
your IP is being temporarily blocked and the cracking process from then on is almost useless. You can still crack accounts, but it's very inefficient.
This does not leave you in danger, no need to panic, but this renders all previously made crackers 'patched' too.
Coincidentally, a friend of mine who doesn't use MPGH (CatSlayer), suggested something to me.
Turns out that he unknowingly discovered a new method which could be used for cracking.
The good news is, this method is not only FASTER but also doesn't have any IP restrictions.
Only thing we need is for somebody to make a cracker with it - could I do this? Yes. Am I going to? No.
It's even mischievous of me to be posting this after my troubles with AE, I'm not willing to make it, but I'm very much willing to share the new method.
Posting it here straight away would be unproductive as it would be easier for AE to patch it.
If you know how to code - PM me and I'll just provide you with it. It's not a hard task for me so I'm not seeking credit. You could probably find it yourself if you tried. Plus it's really not that hard to make a basic cracker.
TLDR - current cracking method sucks, but we've discovered a new much better one and need someone to utilise it in a public cracker.
