    I tried to edit the thread title to include the new windows section so people would know but it seems to only work on the post not the whole thread

    Oh well windows section added

    Is it possible to use john to crack a password if you only have the /etc/shadow file?

    Would depend if they are shadowed as purehate pointed out already. Is this related to De-ICE or in general?

    Aren't passwords in the /etc/shadow file shadowed by definition?

    Yes, I am asking in relation to the second de-ice challenge.

    Now I simply point john to the file
    Since you cannot obtain both of those files in De-ice-1.110 until you have root You will need to approach it in another way. If you find yourself running them through john for hours and not getting anything I would try something else it does not take very long.
