    Thumbs up Clean uTorrent 3.5.5 Build 46074

    SB-Innovation Presents

    >>>>>> Clean uTorrent 3.5.5 Build 46074 <<<<<<





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

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

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

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

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


    · Removed all advertisements and social networking features
    · Removed all the call-homes I could find
    · Trimmed the executable by almost 2 MB by stripping binary blobs, HTML and digital signature
    · Added DHT Patch v2: allows the use of DHT, PEX and LPD for private torrents, but does not enable them by default
    · Added /LARGEADDRESSAWARE patch: allows the process to use up to 4 GB of RAM on 64-bit systems, or up to 3 GB on 32-bit systems configured to support it (the disk cache is still limited to 1800 MB); reportedly also improves stability under high-demand scenarios (e.g. seeding thousands of torrents)
    · Added rss.update_interval patch: allows values lower than 5
    · 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.

    · 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 is not recommended, as said enhancements may rely on removed features.

    · 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:
    ╚═══════════════════════════╝


    · See Attachment 21100 for the instructions and toolkit required to recreate or update this mod.

    · 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
    · utorrent.lng: official language pack file
    · utorrent-355-46074.chm: official help file
    · webui.zip: official WebUI resource file

    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

    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.

    · 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.
    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.

    To me, v3 has a faster download speed than v2, more peer connections too, but some private trackers only allow v2. Also, v3 has better support for the 4K display. V2 is really starting to show its age.

    I've been using uTorrent since version 1.3, and can confidently say 2.2.1 was the pinnacle in terms of interface design. However, it is over a decade old, has several known bugs and security vulnerabilities, and can't handle big .torrent files or piece sizes. Hardcore users will disagree, but I strongly advice against using it. A P2P client has to be exposed to connections from random hosts all over the Internet by definition, so this isn't a "be careful and you'll be fine" situation.

    New version is up. Note that the DHT Patch v2 does not apply to pre-existing torrents. To make that happen, you need to edit resume.dat and change their "dht" (5 = DHX and PEX allowed and enabled; 1 = both allowed, DHT enabled; 0 = both allowed, both disabled) and "lsd" (8 = Local Peer Discovery allowed and enabled; 0 = allowed and disabled) values.

    That's very worrying. Can you try those same torrents with the official uTorrent 3.5.5? I have been using this mod for more than two years now and hash fails have been extremely rare.

    Tested this time on IPT, No Issues, as torrent becomes stable after few seconds by wasting few mbs,...

    1st it start wasting data, 234 kb was download, and 1 mb was wasted data,
    but after few seconds, it got stable,
    when i downloaded 100mb from 1.5GB file, wasted data stopped at 7.65mb,
    and on 125mb download from 1.5GB file, wasted data was 8mb..
