Please refrain from off-topic discussions here.  Where is the password
to crack in Threema?  If there isn't, then this is currently off-topic
for this list.  End of thread.

That said, we're considering adding support for cracking of some
non-password keys to JtR later - e.g., hashcat already has ability to
crack DES keys given a plaintext/ciphertext pair, and we might start
adding similar things too.  But even then, it'd be very different from
what's asked here.

Thanks,

Alexander
