How to Remove DRM from MOBI?
A tool that has been able to break nearly every mobi/prc encryption is MobiDeDrm.
Part 1: Downloading Python
These scripts should run on any OS, given you've got the right files installed. So, before we can get started, you'll have to download Python and a Python extension module like wxPython.
In both steps 1 and 2, choose the Python and wxPython module according to your operating system. After these applications are installed, Python scripts should run flawlessly on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Part 2: Finding Your PID
Your PID is the personal key that your reader uses to encrypt and read the file. We're going to need this key if we're to permanently strip the DRM from the ebook.
In MobiPocket on your desktop, go to Devices, and you'll see the PID of said reader in Details. Note that a PID is both device and ebook-specific. Upon transferring your ebook, the PID is also altered, so you'll need the PID of the right device or the decryption will fail.
Part 3: Remove DRM Protection
First, open the Terminal or command screen.
In Windows XP, go to Start – Run, type cmd and hit enter. In Vista, go to Start, type cmd in the search box and hit enter.
The Terminal application is located in /Applications/Utilities for Mac OS X.
And if you're using Linux, you'll probably know the location. In most distributions, this will also be located at Applications/Utilities.
Next, you navigate to the folder containing your files. To do this, type cd, followed by the full file path to your folder, and hit enter. In my case, that'll make for cd /home/simon/ebook. If your filepath contains spaces, put single quotes (' ) around it.
Now, all you need to do is run the script. Type python mobidedrm005.py infile.mobi outfile.mobi PID and hit enter. Substitute "infile.mobi", "outfile.mobi" and "PID" with the appropriate filenames, file extensions and the PID respectively.
If you're experiencing trouble, try putting your PID between single quotes ( ' ) or using one of the previous script versions (e.g. mobidedrm002.py). Some ebooks refuse to work with the later versions (strangely) but work perfectly well with the first one.
Done! That's all of the process for MOBI DRM removal. Good luck!
