How to Remove DRM from Your Kindle Ebooks


Too Smart Guys created the video above (the tutorial portion starting at 2:05), demonstrating how to remove DRM from Kindle ebooks that you legally purchased so it can be used on other readers e.g Nook. To get started, you need the following:

Kindle for PC (Yes, this means you need Windows but it Kindle for PC reportedly works with Wine.)
Python (Anything 2.x should work fine, but if you want to follow instructions exactly you can download 2.6.4.)
The Unswindle Python script
The supporting mobidedrm.py script

Note: the Python scripts are currently down but Too Smart Guys have been kind enough to provide a torrent you can use to download the files instead.
