Thanks for the replies.
After re-reading the above stack overflow link many times, even before you linked it to me, I finally realized where I'm at in the process.
Looks like im stuck with a bitcoinj formatted wallet that requres a java app to dump the wallet info (private keys). Any ideas?
Never again will I use a mobile wallet where I'll need the private key. I'm hoping to help others who may be in the same boat...my google-fu always brings me back to "openssl decrypt the wallet and your good to go" when that is not the case here. Looks like the last step in this puzzle is to use java dumpwallet command, I'm just not sure how to go about doing that. Thanks againg for pointing me in the right direction.
