    Thumbs up Clean uTorrent

    SB-Innovation Presents

    >>>>>> Clean uTorrent <<<<<<





    ╔═══════════════════════════╗
    Coded by:
    ╚═══════════════════════════╝

    >>>>>> BitTorrent Inc. <<<<<<

    ╔═══════════════════════════╗
    Modded by:
    ╚═══════════════════════════╝

    >>>>>> anon <<<<<<

    ╔═══════════════════════════╗
    Changelog / Features:
    ╚═══════════════════════════╝


    · Removed all advertisements (even the one in the bottom left corner that just wouldn't go away)
    · Removed all Facebook and Twitter crap
    · Removed all the call-homes I could find
    · Trimmed the executable by almost 2 MB by removing the included binary blobs, HTML and digital signature
    · There are no cheating features, it's just for those who want a lightweight client

    ╔═══════════════════════════╗
    Known issues:
    ╚═══════════════════════════╝


    · "Upgrade to Pro" always appears in the sidebar.
    Workaround: go to Options -> Preferences -> Advanced. Close the window, then do the same again but hold Shift+F2 before clicking on Preferences. Find gui.show_plus_upsell_nodes and set it to false. That setting is ignored on startup, so you'll have to do this every time you run the program.

    · A very rare (once per six months of 24/7 runtime in average) issue that causes the program to crash silently. Not known if it's due to the mod or just a bug in uTorrent itself. May only occur if you have partial seeding torrents active, but this is unconfirmed.

    · Clicking where the globe icon would be in the bottom right corner of the window still opens the Preferences dialog.

    · Ticking "Enable protocol enhancements" in the settings spams you with error messages and unhides the Plus advertisement in the bottom left corner. Don't do it.

    · uTorrent will default to TLS 1.0 if no Schannel policies are set, which means many HTTPS trackers won't work. Merging the bundled registry file will solve this.

    ╔═══════════════════════════╗
    Technical information:
    ╚═══════════════════════════╝


    · Find the official uTorrent release matching the build number the mod is based on; extract Carrier.exe from it using 7-Zip or similar
    · Use unsigntool to remove the digital certificate from Carrier.exe
    · Use UPX to decompress said executable
    · Use Resource Hacker to remove all resources of type CSS, GIF, JS, PNG, RCData and HTML from it
    · At this point, filesize should be identical to the mod's and you'll be able to spot all the changes I've made with any binary comparison tool.
    · The only non-obvious difference should be the PE checksum, which can be corrected by using PEChkSum

    · settings.dat: comes preconfigured to disable all advertisements, call-homes and non-essential features
    · updates.dat: dummy read-only file that prevents uTorrent from storing data about (manual) client updates
    · social.bmp: effectively hides the Facebook, Twitter and language icons in the status bar by replacing them with 100% transparent ones
    · TLS Fix.reg: sets several Schannel registry entries to specifically allow TLS 1.x secure protocols

    You wanted it, you got it: Clean uTorrent, available to everyone!

    Note that I will be updating this as my free time and schedule allow, don't expect me to keep up with every new official release. Also, please don't ask for cheating features.

    Good to see you again, too

    There are 254 downloads but no one else commented. I'd like some feedback. Who else is using this mod? Why or why not? Do you think uTorrent 3.5.5 makes a good client after the fluff is removed, or do you still prefer an older version or a different client?

    Good work, but ... the utorrent.lng has only 1.28 MB and contains ~ 55 languages - not everyone wants Utorrent in English language from Deutsch site :)

    Good point. I use all software in English, but not everyone may want to do that. To top it off, since connections to utorrent.com and other domains are removed from the executable, the "Download Translation" menu item won't work.

    The next release will include the latest language file at the time of modding.

    Had this happen today (the last time was on November 2019) and without any partial seeding torrents active, so I'm discarding that theory. My guess is that it's a "mystery" bug in the base client... oh well.

    A new version has been postponed due to a major bug in build 45776's search box that hides all torrents from view. In the meantime, I need some help from anyone running Windows 10 v1903 or above. Go to your Internet Settings, disable SSL 3.0 and enable all versions of TLS up to 1.3, then send me the output of the following commands.

    Code:
    reg query "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v "SecureProtocols"
    reg query "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols" /s

    I still need the output of those commands...

    Also, I added a technical information section to the first post. If you want to know exactly what's been modded, there are step by step instructions there.

    I don't know what you're asking for here, exactly. In any case, the announce structure in this mod is unchanged and always will be, because...

    We don't have a "how to mod uTorrent" tutorial. There are a few pointers under "Technical information" in the first post. Most of the actual modding requires the use of a hex editor; HxD 1.7.7.0 is my favorite. Most importantly, you need to be familiar with how strings and other data are stored and arranged inside an executable.

    The latest one rearranged interface elements after more than a decade, and I don't want to "relearn" the program. The old version works fine in any case.
