Hi Xeroc,

Are you still offering your recovery service? I have an old json wallet and pass but after a few hours I just realize I am too dumb to succeed so happy to share 10% of whatever might be in there!
Yes I do... please contact me per mail at    mail@xeroc.org
We can go from there ...

As mentioned, I don't brute force passwords! Either it is the correct one, or not.

I'm interested in your help with pass phrase recovery. Having problems migrating from 9.3 to the 2.0 light.
Well, I don't bruteforce passwords and thus don't recover "passwords".
There is only one edge case in which I can help you and that is when your wallet has been created pref 0.9.3c ...
but I really need the correct password to help you ..

Anyway, how is the 2FA service coming along? 
Nicely .. there have been some hold ups and issues that forced me refacture the code .. and there still is stuff to be refactured .. but once the last required features is added, i could probably show a MVP on the testnet .. However .. there are some things moving behind the scene that require quite some of my time .. stay relaxed .. it's all BitShares related :)

So what do you think about adding a password recovery service to your offering?  I think it would fit nicely with the 2FA service.  And you may be able to sell both services together in bulk to any organization who brings non-crypto users to BitShares and wants their users to have 2FA and/or password recovery on their accounts.

So is this service ready to go?
Always, has been. Was just waiting for the first customers to come. :)
Making good progress on this one.

Oops, I thought this was a new/different service.  I thought this was more like a multi-sig password recovery service for web hosted wallets, something to go along with your upcoming 2FA service.  Maybe you should offer something like that?  Anyway, how is the 2FA service coming along?

For sake of completeness :)
---------------------------
As for the accounts of your wallet, you should consider them compromised right now as they are also in the wallet file you have sent me!
This is how you can change their keys to lock me out of them again:

1) Download paperwallet https://github.com/xeroc/graphene-paperwallet/releases
2) Unpack zip file and open index.html in the browser
3) print TWO new key for every account
4) For each account:
      a) go to the permissions page -> active permissions    and *only* add the new public keys from the paper wallet with threshold 1  (do not yet remove the other key)
      b) go to the permissions page -> owner permissions    and *only* add the new public keys from the paper wallet with threshold 1 (do not yet remove the other key)
      c) and click "publish changes"! (at this point I hope they GUI team has fixed a small bug that might cause a "missign authority" bug)
5) Create a new wallet in the wallet management console
6) Import all your private keys using the IMPORT KEYS tool
7) Make a NEW BACKUP (important step) after you have imported all keys also make sure you never forget the passphrase!!!
8) Your accounts should now all appear in the overview page
9) For each account, remove the keys that you don't have the keys installed in the new wallet (e.g. remove the old keys) in a similar way as described in 4.
