Raccoon v3.5 and DummyDroid no longer working

Things just tend to break when you have absolutely no time to fix them. It looks like Google shut off “ClientLogin” for good now in order to push for OAUTH2. As a result, neither DummyDroid nor Raccoon are able to log in anymore. You just get an authentication error along with a vacuous exception on the terminal:

There is no workaround for this problem. The login routine needs to be rewritten to use OAUTH2. Unfortunately, I have an important deadline to meet and therefore no time at all for this. If anyone wants to help out: any ideas on how to get an “Auth” token from Google are welcome (preferably with code examples). For obvious reasons, these ideas should not include having to register API keys.
