There is also this strange sequence at the beginning of the file, but I have no idea what it means. Each element of this sequence sums up to the same value, or more precisely 4+6 and 5+7 are always 255, but I don't know if this leads me anywhere...
edit: seems like I found something - my hint for the first part: don't read too many hints they can be quite confusing. This one applies also to me, although I also had to make this experience on my own

I tried all modules that could possibly apply, and the first one I tried worked. That is, it didn't throw an eror; the data had subtly changed so at first I wasn't quite sure anything had happened at all. Then the penny dropped and I solved the riddle.
