Pretend I have a friend that made a couple armory wallets.

If this friend had manged to somehow type a password in 3 times;

yet he cant remember exactly how the password is now.

If it was only say 3-5 numbers at the end of a word he knows is right

What brute-force program/setup would you recommend using?

I got BN+ installed, is there a way to get the Hash from armory?





......I got 100btc trapped in the wallet, been typing for hours strait. Freaking out here. I understand this is something The people at Armory spend hundreds of hours making secure. I feel like the Biggest looser alive for letting this happen to me.


Just found this

That's such a good idea I'm going to make it part of my new wallet format in Armory.  This kind of thing happens infrequently, but enough.

Although, Armory has the advantage that you usually have a paper backup which is unencrypted.  When you forget your passphrase, you only need to restore your wallet from the sheet of paper.

If I have a printed backup, and restore. Does  this remove the password!? omg trying this

The Bitcoin software, network, and concept is called "Bitcoin" with a capitalized "B". Bitcoin currency units are called "bitcoins" with a lowercase "b" -- this is often abbreviated BTC.
