so change this to:
          crackMD5Hash( value )

>> import hashlib 
>> def crackMD5Hash():

Nah .... 

def crackMD5Hash( hash ):
        print "cracking hash:", hash
        some code goes here ...
        print "original string was:", result

Algorithms for cracking md5 hashes is not a python topic, but rather a 
cryptography topic. When you find an algorithm to use, then if you have 
trouble converting it into code we may be able to help with that bit.
