Hello Pigbog

Ive never used hiew myself ,tried to a couple of times but dont like the interface...why did i try it those 2 times though?.....because at the time i liked the option to generate opcodes for you ..example

instead of you trying to work out the maths and opcodes for a conditional jump etc from

<00455273> to just say <00455360>

then you dont have to as hiew will generates the codes for us like so ,

type at line <00455273> je 00455360

and hiew generates the opcodes ( hex values )

0F84E7000000 - which is opcodes for je 00455360

That was early on before i learned about other tools...


You'll hear people talking about Softice , ollydebug etc and although these tools are a boon in a crackers hands there not needed in the majority of cases ( just my personal opinion )

The best advice i can offer regarding tools to begin with are these

Win32Dasm v8.93 CZ - souped up W32dasm which allows you to amongst other things edit the file your cracking directly in real-time - amazing how useful this is when using it!1

Winhex - hexeditor for making changes to exe files and searching memory for serials etc

PeID - check before cracking whether the file is packed or not

GENERIC UNPACKER WiN32 - if it is packed try unpacking it with this

For reference and getting out of sticky places

Opcode2.hlp - check the hex value of an opcode and vice-versa

RTA v1.2 - opcode generator - nice to have just in case

Thats it!!

These tools will serve u well in all but the most demanding cases and if you add to them a bit of TLC then they could give you many "Firsts"

Ok i know theres tons more tools but treat these as your "Lockpicks" and you cant go wrong

OllyDBG + OllyDMP + ImpREC + IDA 4.5 = never care for packer nor compiler

no, there is no better tool than HIEW
