Write-up

This one requires more reverse engineering skill than the previous one. A pseudo-code is also helpful in this case.

Screenshot

In general, the objective is to get back to 0x8048b4a with an eax value of 1. This means we have to get to 0x8048998. In order to do that, we must travel down from 0x8048930 and in order to get to 0x8048930, we need eax to have a value of 2 such that it jumps from 0x8048906. This means, our arguments has to have 5 values, all of which once magicked should have a value of 2, 1, 3, 2 and 4.

Now that we have the logistics out of the way, let's look at magic(). After awhile of digging, it's just a glorified bit counter, counting the amount of 1s in a character byte. As such, we can just replicate it in Python.
