Due to the fact that a decen't one hasn't been made yet, here's my shot at a decent walkthrough.

--------------------------------

Step 1:

Download the Kracker application mentioned in the briefing.

--------------------------------

Step 2:

Upon use, the Kracker application fails due to a missing framework. To fix this problem, check out the developer's website for a framework you can download.

--------------------------------

Step 3:

Once find the framework, download it and put it in the Kracker application bundle. You can do this by control clicking the application and selecting "Show Package Contents." From there, navigate to the "Frameworks" folder (/Contents/Frameworks/) and put the framework there.

--------------------------------

Step 4:

Now that you have Kracker working, you need use it to get into the email mentioned in the briefing. Be sure to take note from the briefing that the username is "apps".

Kracker requires that we get the port number and IP address of the MacZot! email system. The easiest way to do this is by using the "Network Utility" program located within your "Utilities" folders (shortcut from finder to Utilities is Apple+Shift+U).

Open the Network Utility application, and select the "Port Scan" tab. From there, just enter the URL of MacZot! (I had some trouble with this, so if it doesn't work for you, lookup the default port number for Kerberos and try using that.)

--------------------------------

Step 5:

Upon the completion of the port scan, you should have all the information Kracker needs to retrieve the password for the MacZot! email (IE: Username, IP Address, and Port number). Plug in the needed information and let it rip!

--------------------------------

Step 6:

Now that Kracker got you the password, use it! Go back to the MacZot! email page mentioned in the briefing, and use the username and password to log in. From there, do what Lisa told you and send and email to Nick Ledoux telling him why he should quit.

--------------------------------

Step 7:

Once you've sent the email, wait for a reply; this may take a while.

--------------------------------

Step 8:

Check out Nick's reply and see if the deed is done. If everything has gone well, you should recieve the safe code for the heist shortly.

--------------------------------

Disclaimer:

This is most likely a far from perfect guide, so if anyone has any problems, post a reply with a fix/update.

Happy heisting!

What do you mean no spoilers? This whole thing is a spoiler. Just because you don't immediately give the code to the safe doesn't keep this from spoiling the heist for those that actually want to do it themselves.

The intent was to help people along without blatantly telling them how to do each and every little thing.

So basically you just generalized each step... but I still say that has spoilers.
