From: Daniel Sorry <>
Subject: Re: Cracking luks volume

I kinda gave up on this venture but maybe i should give it another try.
@Frank. Yeh, i tried changing different keyboard layouts to make sure. (It
shouldn't matter anyhow as the keys used are identical on both layouts)
Yes, i really deleted the password, i changed it and deleted the old, i
verified this later by looking at the enabled keyslots, only keyslot 1 is
enabled :(

I'm so sure of my password combinations I've started to think the master
key got corrupted or something along that line.

I couldn't math to save my life but i don't think the list should be overly
big tbh.
For example, every 9th char i know its 1/2 special characters.
I know roughly how long it should be etc.

Prince mode seems to be what I need but I'm worried it will be a pretty big
list anyhow.
Is there a way to define and narrow the list down ?
For example: F6TgW8D8"1/2 special chars"F6TgW8D8"1/2 special chars"F6TgW8D8"2/2
special chars"
And make a list based on the those 6 char variations ?

Thanks for all the help and input, really appreciate it :)
