How to restore a Dero wallet from your seed/keys


#1

Hello, this portion of the post is intended to be a guide for restoring your golang wallet from seed/keys.

  1. Please make sure you’re using the latest version of Dero’s software (currently found here: http://seeds.dero.io/alpha/)

  2. Synchronize your daemon 100%

  3. Open your wallet and use option 3 (seed) or 4 (keys) to restore your wallet

  4. Allow it time to scan the blockchain and if your balance appears incorrect type/use the “balance” command in the terminal

Hello, this is intended to be a basic guide to restoring your wallet from the OLD command line interface (CLI).

Step.1 Find your 25 word mnemonic seed that you saved when creating your wallet.

Step.2 Figure out which drive & directory (folder) that you saved the Dero folder to (specifically “Dero-Wallet-Cli”)

Step.3 Open a command prompt window and navigate to the directory that contains “Dero-Wallet-Cli” . (A example would be “c:\dero” if you put the folder directly onto the c drive directory.)

Step.4 In the command prompt type ./dero-wallet-cli --restore-deterministic-wallet. (Working example: c:\dero./dero-wallet-cli --restore-deterministic-wallet)

Step.5 Enter your 25 word mnemonic seed

Step.6 Enter your new wallet name, password, and language when prompted.

Step 7. You will see the following text : “Restore from specific blockchain height (optional, default 0),
or alternatively from specific date (YYYY-MM-DD):” . If you do not require or do not know the specific block height or date, just press enter which will select the “default” option

Congratulations, by this point you should have restored your wallet!

Hello florov,

At a cursory glance, it appears that you may be running derosuite. Can you try downloading from here (https://github.com/deroproject/dero/releases/download/v0.11.6/dero_v6_windows_amd64.zip) to get the most up to date version for windows?

If you require any type of assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out

Tried on linux ubuntu 16.04 and working! Thank you.

Hi,
i was able to open my wallet with derosuite, but with the last v6 version i keep getting this error
Error: Electrum-style word list failed verification dero

I can open the wallet normally in the old version but no sync in the daemon, and i can sync the daemon in the new version but cant open my wallet.
Can you help me?
Best regards!

Hello weekend06,

Can you please make sure you download the latest version of the original daemon here (https://github.com/deroproject/dero/releases)

You need to make sure the daemon is synced before you’re able to use the wallet so if possible lets make sure that you’ve gone over the following steps

Please make sure your p2pstate.bin file and imbd folder are deleted (if they are there) from the programdata folder or the appropriate directory in linux. After that please restart your computer (important if you’ve used Derosuite) and download the v6 version from the link above and open derod with no extra commands like exclusive or priority nodes.

After the daemon appears to be synced you can check it with the “status” command and it should say 100.0%.


#7

ok, i´ll start over again.
I´ll update you later.
Thanks and best regards!


#8

Thank you weekend06, I hope it all goes well and please feel free to follow up as much as is needed with any Dero related questions you may have.

Regards,
Serena

Hi,
Finished updating dero blockchain. Status says 100%
I try to open wallet Error: Electrum-style word list failed verification with the same exact passfrase i am able to open on the old suite.


#10

Can you try entering the first 4 letters of each word manually?

If you have the keys we can generate a wallet from those as well


#11

Hi if i do that i get this message
Electrum seed continued:

Thanks fot your suppor!
Best regards

PS - I also have the keys


#12

Hi i managed to recover the wallet with the keys.
Thanks for your help!


#13

In the old version of the wallet, there was no name, only a control phrase. And I created a purse on which coins are placed. How can I take them from there?


#14

Once you’ve restored your wallet (you may name it anything you wish) you are asked to use or create a filename. At that time, you’re able to enter anything.

If you need to transfer or have any questions about transfers please see this guide (A comprehensive Dero transfer guide & FAQ)
