But, I lost my wallet's password & back-up codes. :(
I'm going to live-tweet my attempt to hack back into my wallet.
(Windows running in a window on my Mac.)
1. Install python, visual studio and a bunch of other packages.
2. Generate as many passwords as possible based on a few parameters I think might be accurate.
3. Brute force.
"close failed in file object destructor:
sys.excepthook is missing
btcrecover generates the passwords first, then tests them. It grinds to a halt when it gets up into double-digit millions. Can't get passed 45 million on this machine.
Do I create a boot disk with them?
I’m going to try partition my iMac, and somehow boot with these. No idea if this will work.
