Restoring an old Byron wallet. Passphrase is fine 100% wallet is up but no balance in it and even no receiving address to be seen.
I tried installing daedalus flight but same issue. I don´t if yoroi could solve the issue. Kinda worried about how to find legit yoroi wallet as well. A bit baffled quite a few people seem to have the same issue.
Have of course submitted a ticket to official support but they don´t have a sollution either.
Would be great if you got ideas but kinda starting to lose hope, but have a little hope, there gotta be some kinda solution?
If u have the secret key u can try to restore the wallet via import option; u will still need the spending password in order to move the funds!
Thank you for reply its just that I somehow even cant find the secret key file on my computer I have checked the route to find it but it doesn´t show up? Hmm I will look some more.
Thank you for support.
It’s the desktop/pc which u used when u installed the byron wallet?
Did u reinstalled the operating system?
Hellp I have found the secret key lock location but I cant really open that? How do I like copy that and put it into Cardano. I can find the file when Daedalus is shut down but when I try to follow the route with Daedalus open the secret file it is not possible to locate?
If u check the details, can u see when it was created? Which date?
Try to copy it on desktop…
I see the name of the folder secrets 1.0 but cant really open or see any content of that file
Ok… what version of daedalus do u have? Do u still hvae another daedalus wallet opened?
When I click on the secret file it says there is no application set to open
Well I did download Daedalus flight as well and that didnt work. First I tried with latest Daedalus and that didnt work, now I am looking for the secret file in the old version of Daedalus that I restored from my time machine back up. But when trying to open secret file I have closed all daedalus wallets
Have you read this article? it called importing wallet…
Windows users must close all other versions of Daedalus before importing wallets. Attempting to import a wallet while other versions of Daedalus are still running will cause an error message to appear.
Check in task manager and close all cardano node services if u have… then restart ur pc
Maybe u have the old daedalus started?
Thanks I am on a mac. when I followed the route in the article there was the one I installed and one said name not found and had a box to tick password… Hold on I am seeing some transaction now for the last one I added it is linking to blockchain now I still dont see a receive place though well getting some hope at least
Wait, the wallet need to be synced in order to see the funds
Then, u will need to move them to a shelley wallet… (bkp the new 24 seed words for the shelley wallet) and then u can start to delegate.
How do I move to Shelley wallet? Gonna google that for a start anyhow
Create a shelley wallet in daedalus- bkp the 24 seed words.
Go to receive section (shelley wallet) and copy the address then go to send section (byron wallet) and paste it;
First time try a small amount like 2-3 ADA
