Very Specific Characters
I am new to HashCat, I have a hash that I am trying to crack, and two questions I hope you can answer. It is a Mac OS X 10.7.5 Lion hash, extracted directly from the ShadowHashData .plist for that user. Click here if you don't know what I am talking about; that is a link to the process that lets you extract the hash. Now for question 1. Do I need to edit the string in any way before I put it into a text file for HashCat to work on (is the plain text file necessary?). If so, what should be changed?

Here is information about the password that the hash is protecting. It is twelve characters long, there is only one character that requires the shift key (uppercase letter or symbol), and it is the 11th character. Here is a visual if you didn't understand my verbal description.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Shift _

How would I format this? Can you even format this?

If you need more information, I will do my best to supply it.

That is what you need to look at. It should look something like -1 ?u?s -2 ?l?d ?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?2?1?2

Is there any formatting I must do to the hash? What about the text file? Do you have any tutorials for beginner syntax? Not to be pushy, but I would like more information. Thanks for the lightning fast reply though.
for formatting the hash, look at the example hashes page on the wiki. for beginners guides, see the wiki. for all other questions, see the wiki. everything is on the wiki.
Okay. Thank you! I will check that out.
