Well first run bitcoin2john and redirect the output to a new file. Then start john, give the hash file as argument and specify the attack mode. You might want to start with a wordlist attack using for instance the rockyou.txt wordlist. That is a good starting point. I don't know how the hash is extracted from wallet.dat, but I guess that wallet.dat is password protected and it is this password that can be cracked with john. In general most hash formats work like this with john: 1. A candidate password is calculated by john 2. The candidate is run through the relevant format algorithm and a hash is calculated 3. Compare the calculated hash with the relevant hash(es) in the hash file Then loop back to 1 and calculate another password candidate. Your attack specifies how the candidates are calculated. There are many different ways to calculate candidate passwords, "attacks". See the doc folder for more information. The wordlist attack is the most basic, it just tries each word in the list.
