For larger wordlists, you need a 64-bit build. > As you can see, I was at 8% then I go down to 1%, 2%, 4%..... ! That's a little bit weird. On most systems (based on reports so far), running a 32-bit build of JtR against a wordlist larger than 2 GB would result in an error from a system library call, which JtR would report. Apparently, OS X is lax in this respect, not notifying JtR of the error. Indeed, JtR itself could be improved too, either by making it support Large Files even with 32-bit builds(*) or by making it detect the error (not rely on the underlying library calls to detect it). (*) Those curious of how such support may be implemented may want to refer to this posting: http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2008/12/09/2 Alexander P.S.
