We found recently that a popular DRM stripper tool called Requiem has been updated to version 3.3.5 , in this new version comes support for decrypting e-books purchased from the iBookstore. This is a significant new feature to the Requiem application that has already had a long history of being able to remove the DRM restrictions from music and videos purchased from the iTunes Store.
The latest version to remove DRM from iBooks is 3.3.6 and works with iTunes 10.5.x, Windows and Mac OS X.
TO USE: Requiem version 3.3.6
Double-click on the Requiem application and watch it work!It will automatically find DRMed files in your iTunes library and remove the DRM from them.
The original DRMed files will be moved to the trash. Make sure you verify that the songs, videos, and books still work before emptying the trash.
Windows users will need to install Java.
You can also drag & drop files or directories (which will be searched recursively) onto the Requiem application or the Requiem window.
Starting Requiem with the shift key down will disable scanning of the iTunes library. You can use this feature to start requiem with a blank window into which you can drag & drop files to be processed.
Requiem has a Tor website: http://tag3ulp55xczs3pn.onion. To reach the site using Tor, you will need to install Tor (http://www.torproject.org). If you’re willing to sacrifice your
anonymity, you can use the regular web with tor2web. Just go to http://tag3ulp55xczs3pn.tor2web.com.
With Requiem being able to decrypt Apple’s own DRM protection, called FairPlay, on iBooks it means Apple’s e-books are no longer only restricted to being read on iOS devices. Due to this fact we are sure to see Apple release an update to their DRM protection method in the near future like they have in the past to counter Requiem’s decryption methods on songs/videos.
