As constantly, while you're not doing retail Kindle uploads or unlocking Kindle leases, you don't need this; you should use the traditional toolkit at once from Apprentice Alf.
However, should you are doing Kindle retail uploads or have to release Kindle leases, you should utilize this instead of the normal Apprentice Alf standalone instruments and/or Calibre plugin.
Why? as the inventory instruments don't get rid of watermarks from decoded MOBI and AZW3 documents, this means that there's making a choice on info (the "atv:kin1:" watermark header) on your retail uploads that hyperlink again in your Amazon account. even supposing so far no one has been banned or sued after being pointed out during this means (that we all know of), the data is on your uploads until you get rid of it. (Also, the inventory instruments don't help elimination DRM from Kindle leases or specific sorts of loans.)
This torrent is largely just like the off-the-shelf Apprentices toolkit, other than that every reproduction of "mobidedrm.py" within the home windows app, Macintosh app, and Calibre plugins were patched to do the watermark removing and to liberate leases. And, because those are source-only alterations, you could simply be sure the code adjustments for your self by way of evaluating the contents of this torrent with the traditional instruments from Apprentice Alf. (Note that one of many patched documents is contained in the Calibre plugin zipfile.)
To set up and use, follow the normal directions for fitting the Apprentices DRM tools, on Apprentice Alf's weblog or within the Tutorials discussion board right here. which means you want to unzip this dossier first. don't try and set up it as a Calibre plugin, the plugin is a dossier named "Calibre_plugin.zip" that's inside the "tools_v6.2.1.zip" file.
Please be aware that when you have any older models of the Calibre plugin(s) put in, you must uninstall or disable them all earlier than fitting this model. At one element, there have been a number of plugins for various codecs, however the most up-to-date instruments have just a unmarried plugin for all codecs, and when you've got either the previous and new ones lively while, it isn't assured that the correct plugins will really approach the file.
(It's additionally very important to notice that those instruments only eliminate the watermark while a Kindle e-book is first imported to Calibre, or unlocked utilizing the home windows or Macintosh apps; they won't get rid of watermarks from records you could have already imported or switched over, and naturally it's too past due to do whatever approximately any Kindle retail uploads you've already performed right here or elsewhere.)
For additional info and questions, there's a discussion board thread right here: http://bibliotik.org/forums/17/2771
My coverage on freeing New Versions

So, please don't publish reviews the following or at the boards approximately new models of the toolkit! All that might accomplish is demanding me, and if i'm pissed off, i'll most likely put off engaged on it. (This free up was once in reality behind schedule by way of of an stressful one that stored posting torrent and discussion board reviews approximately how the recent model used to be out and other people should still upgrade.)
If it's been per week or in view that an replace got here out, and also you are actually being held up from uploading a retail Kindle ebook because the present model doesn't work and the hot model does, then be at liberty to ship me a PM.
