Just a dumb question, but you aren't using the --listpass argument when you actually try to bruteforce your password... Right?[/quote]

No mate. I have ran a brute force and got 'password search exhausted' but my password was in the list when running --listpass.

I just can't understand why?

Do you have a file to run the password search on ?
Or HOW are you trying to recover your online password with btcrecover ?

Reinstalling btcrecover won't help you there. It is running/working as expected.

Yeah I have downloaded the .json file from

I agree that it seems to be running as expected but as I said it is not finding my password even though I have seen it right there in the --listpass.

I have done a full uninstall and reinstall of all the software associated with btcrecover and I still get 'password search exhausted' on a token list which I know definitely contains my password (ran --listpass).

I just can't understand why?

Hi Guys,

I have an old wallet and have tried to get into it using btcrecover.I tried to follow the instructions on the website but am not very 'tecchy' so I followed a guide which a guy had put on YouTube which was very helpful. After doing all the installs etc and having no joy only 'password search exhausted' I made a new account to check see if it actually worked and I still get 'password search exhausted' even though it's a known password and I have seen it in '--listpass'

Here is the guys video:

Now my instinct tells me that this guy is legit. He has been posting videos for a couple of years and still answers questions (he actually answered a couple of emails I sent him) to people on his videos etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the replies guys!

I have already tried it by putting the password on separate lines and ran --listpass (gives you a list of possible passwords) and found my password on the list which is why it is really bugging me. I have double checked by logging back into blockchain and it is definitely the correct password.

I followed this guys YouTube video on how to use btcrecover to brute-force the password:

Hey guys,

Not sure if I'm in the right forum or not here but I was wondering if anybody had any success using btcrecover?

I am trying to get into an old wallet and it seems like people have had success using btcrecover so I have given it a go.

I made a new wallet to test it out and put my exact password in the token file but when I run the check it comes back "password search exhausted" but I know that it is definitely the correct password

Can anybody shine some light on this?
