    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 Clean uTorrent Files.zip 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

    Note that hash fails and wasted data are not the same thing. Hash fails occur when pieces are corrupted in transit and do not pass the hash check. Wasted data are merely pieces or subpieces that arrived OK but your client did not need.

    If you have changed the value of bt.prio_first_last_piece or bt.send_have_to_seed, reset them to the default.

    Since there may be a newer version out when I get around updating this, I can't promise a particular build number. I'll do whatever is the latest stable at the time.

    From the looks of that screenshot, I'd expect it to be a cracked but otherwise unmodified uTorrent Pro. In that case, it would have no advertisements, plus an antivirus, media player and other features most don't really need.

    Edit: confirmed, that's exactly what it was.

    The long-overdue update is up! Unfortunately, I no longer have the time to continue this project, but here's (most of) my toolkit and notes for making the mod. If you follow the steps, you'll be able to create your own Clean uTorrent for any future versions.

    Thanks anon for your great work.

    One question though, can your toolkit be applied to the cracked (Pro) version mentioned above to get rid of "Upgrade to Pro" for once ?

    Can this be the cleanest version possible (your mod + Pro "cracked" version) ?

    I haven't checked, since uTorrent Pro is commercial software and the forum rules don't allow posting a cracked version. But thanks to the cleanup done on the executable, this is a cosmetic bug anyway, clicking on "Upgrade to Pro" doesn't even do anything!

    For the record, 3.5.5 Build 45291 is the last version of uTorrent that works on Windows XP. Since it's very hard to find, I have attached it to this post for your convenience. Note the executable is completely untouched (as can be attested by checking its digital signature); if you want a clean version of it, you'll have to follow the steps in post #22.

    For what it's worth, I use 5.1.7 (build 343).

    As long as you're following the steps in the way and order they're written, then yes. That freeze was likely a bug in Resource Hacker.

    Well, I provided a list of strings to search for, as well as a short one of those not to delete

    is there any tutorial? anywhere on any forum?
    No, because basic knowledge of a hex editor is assumed. But for the most part, it's a matter of double-clicking what you want to remove -> right-click -> fill selection with bytes -> 00 -> OK. Where the procedure differs from this, my notes explain it unambiguously.

    If you need more specific hints, get a copy of build 46074, do everything you've done so far on it, then run a binary comparison (a task for which I use Total Commander but many other programs exist) to see what I wiped. Note that new versions often add or remove this sort of strings, so don't mindlessly replicate what you see.
