Is this in John 1.7.9-jumbo7? I've been trying to use this with the output from DaveGrohl (dave -j <username>, but I get the error:

No password hashes loaded (see FAQ). 

The output looks like its correct, but I know that the author of Dave was taking a guess at the format you'd need when he implemented the hash extraction. I get the following from Dave:


What should the format be for John, or do I need to tell it which hash to use manually?
