I am running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4.

I tried the /sbin/systemstarter nidump passwd entire process to get the hash and input it on the John the Ripper program but it didnt work.

Thing is I have a school MacBook and theyve blocked everything. They set a firmware password but I got through that. I know I can use the reset password utility to set a new one but I want to get the admin password in order to access other computers.

Is there another way?

We don't discuss things like that here
