I have been trying to do it with john the ripper as the following:

john --FORMAT=NT --wordlist=~/usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt hash.txt

the hash I am trying to crack is:


however, it didn't work. It keeps showing the following:

using default input encoding: UTF-8
loaded 1 password hash (NT [MD4 256/256 AVX2 8×3]))
press 'q' or ctrl-c to abort, almost any other key for status
0g 0:00:00:01 DONE (2023-07-21 10:10) 0g/s 10245Kp/s 10245Kc/s 10245KC/s _09..*7!vamos!
Session completed.

    Why do you think something is wrong. Whenever asking for troubleshooting help, always include the command you used. Also, is the password in the wordlist you gave it?

    Unless your wordlist is in your home directory, you don't want the ~ in your path for the wordlist. Try removing the tilde and see what happens.
