Normally I wouldn’t bother joining a forum unless I have a problem.
So … I have a problem.
This morning I got the dreaded YELLOW PAGE when attempting to log in to my DAEDALUS INCENTIVISED TESTNET REWARDS WALLET as I usually do.
YELLOW SCREEN - so followed instructions.
I deleted the old setup link and installed the NEW link.
New software is REWARDS (2.1.0-ITN1#220.127.116.1193)
So far so good … until I made the log in connection successfully.
From this point on I am under restraint because we are civilised here.
I was asked to either Create or Restore a Wallet.
Naturally I chose “RESTORE.”
Proceeded through the steps - you know the drill - Recovery Phrase, Password etc, only to read:
“WALLET YOU ARE TRYING TO RESTORE ALREADY EXISTS.”
We I know that, and now all of the Cardano Forum KNOWS THAT.
I searched for a solution to this, but the older solutions do not work.
So where do we go from here?
Why does a fix have to destroy all of the previous work?
Why wasn’t there more notice/education about this?
I am a member of YouTube channels, and guess I will need to wait until someone on there proposes the solution. I am still waiting for an answer from a Support Ticket I placed about 2 weeks ago.
So now it looks like 500,000 people will be trying to update and sync their new Testnet Reward Wallets.
Is this really necessary??
Oh well - I guess it will be ok one day.
