Tons of new programs are coming out each day… But the bad thing is that
most of them are shareware, which means that you have to pay to get the full
version (most of the time, when you’ll register, the creators of the program
will e-mail you an unlock code)… Butthere are some guys called “crackers”
who can modify the program so that you don’t need to pay to get the full
version. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to crack programs (except VB
programs). I hope that you’ll enjoy it.

1) Programs that you’ll need to get started
Here’s the list of programs that you’ll need to get to start cracking:
2) Basic things about cracking
Please remember that in this tutorial, I expect that you never cracked a
program, so it should be easy for beginners.
Here is, step by step, what you have to do to crack a program which needs a
name and a serial number (assumingthat there’s no good protection):
a) Run the program
cool.gif Go to the place where you can enter your name and a serial number
c) Type your name and any serial number
d) Write down (or memorise) the error message
e) Copy the program’s exe to .bak (for backup) and to .w32
f) Disassemble [progname].w32 withWinDisassembler
g) Click on search -> search. Type the error message, and click on search
h) Scroll up until you find this “Referenced by a (U)nconditional or
Â©onditional Jump at Address: | blabla” (where blabla is the address)
i) Go to this address by scrolling up (the addresses are writen on the left)
j) There should be “jne” written at this address.
h) Double-click on the line and memorise the offset (written on the status bar)
i) Launch hacker’s view and edit the exe files
j) Press F4 and select Decode Mode
k) Press F5 and type the Offset.
l) Press F3 and type 74 (which will change jne to je)
m) If the program isn’t very securised, it should be cracked now!
n) Run the program
o) Type your name and any serial number
p) It should work!
Note: If it didn’t work, then it means that the program is more protected.
