Hello everyone. This is my first post, and it is to ask help. I promise I did search in google first, and in the forum now and I did not find an answer to this (silly? simple?) question:

Can an existing address be managed in a client application?

Here is my situation more in details. I downloaded and installed a NXT client in my Android phone (Samsun S5). Looks nice and I created a NXT address (wallet, whatever you call it). All the functions of the wallet were working ok, but I had no funds in it. So I went in an exchange and purchased NXT with BTC and sent the NXT to my newly created wallet. When the Android client opens the "transactions" page, the app crashes. This stops the app to see the balance I have, and thus I can't send NXT out. So I have my NXT "locked" in that wallet. I did look for other clients that would allow me to "open" my existing wallet, but nothing that would install in my OSX, and the one online only creates a new address when the account is created, and do not have the function for me to enter my other address and security phrase to manage my NXT...

Any suggestion on how to get back in control of my NXT in that address created by the Android app?

Thank you in advance for your help, and accept my apologies if the question is silly (not for me) and/or has been already answered somewhere else in the forum.

Cheers,
Rob

sure, append your account number at the end of the equal sign here:

http://blocks.nxtcrypto.org/nxt/nxt.cgi?action=3000&acc=

and you can check the acct balance in the block explorer

and use the account's passphrase in the 1.1.4 client you can download from here and you can access the account

Hello forkedchain,
   thank you for your reply. I did manage to check the balance already (this is why I know the deposit went through) but I never managed to install the client as it requires Java (the original one) and my OSX feels offended if I do stop using the OSX version of Java (somehow it gives problems). The fact that you confirm me that the account can be accessed with a client is already relaxing me ;)

I will create a VM and setup an Ubuntu distro and try it there. :)

Thank you again for the reply. I wish there was an easier way tho, and I look forward for the Android app to be updated.

Hi Rob,

Did you get another client set up?

Delete the Android wallet you have now, is was only up to date till about version 0.8.x (1.1.4 is current). You sound like you have seen another one is on the way  ;D

Also, if you need any help in the future, there is a dedicated board here: https://nxtforum.org/nxt-helpdesk/ that has a lot of people watching it giving answers.

Hi Daedelus,
   I did not manage (yet) to have a client installed nor in the computer, nor in the phone. Not due to failed attempts, but rather because I had no time to try seriously :)

I am for now piling up NXT on the online wallet...

Ok. Are you aware there are several clients? Nxtwallet and Offspring are cross platform and can be found here >>>> https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/help-managing-an-existing-'nxt-address'-in-a-freshly-installed-client/msg48443/?topicseen#new

OSX is Mac? One of these should work, unless I misunderstand ;D

UPDATE: So, I gave up on an OSX (yes, it is Apple Mac) client, as the need of the Oracle's Java is something that has the downside of suddenly disabling java from all the browsers. I have a Windows PC and I installed the client there (Nxt Wallet 1.2 downloaded from nxtra.org/nxt-wallet) so I finally managed to open the account I previously had created with the Android client and got hold of my NXT coins! ;)

Now the questions are millions, I will post those I get no answer googling...

Thank you so far for the support!

Yes, but it creates new wallets, you can't use it to open an existing one...

This has not been my experience, friend. I use Safari, Chrome, and Firefox on my mac and have no issues with Java. I also run Nxt software full-time!

What Java are you downloading and installing? The full JRE is the best option.

I have an app that runs only with the Java provided by Apple. If I install Oracle's one the OSX one gets disabled (?) or both running creates some conflict... Not sure, I say this just for the warning I received when I attempted to install Oracle's Java (latest version).

Anyways, I am now an happy camper (still not able to forge, but I guess it is a matter of waiting. :)

Just to give an update on how it did end... sleep depravation, mixing experiments with actual purchase of NXT brought me to install the client wallet on a computer full of trojans, and using a very weak password. This lead to someone stealing all my funds. And they were pretty much my savings :'(

After recovering from the trauma I am giving now a new trial to NXT :)

Never underestimate security. When I saw in the blockchain the transfer out of my wallet for all the amount I had saved I felt very stupid, with nothing to do about it, with nobody to call to complain. For a moment I loved the old banking system. But just for a moment.

NXT community has been very nice donating me some NXT to help me recover some faith in the NXT system.

I felt loved! ;)

Well, beware of experiements with NXT wallets!

The full story here: https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/got-nxt-64-757-stolen-from-my-wallet-'(/

I offered the NXT community to prepare a promotional video for NXT but I got no reply back. We did two videos for BitCoins in the meanwhile.

Check them here:

Those are awesome videos! It would be great to have one for NXT.

My suggestion is if you're doing it because you want to return the love, then just do it. If you want compensation, you can submit your idea (in detail) to the Marketing Committee. If you've noticed some here in the community you think you would like to work with, approach them.

You could also create a new topic about a promotional video about Nxt as your post passed me by in this topic a couple of times.

Best!

Hi,
 as it is quite expensive to do, a video like that, I don't want to do it wrongly (saying something wrong, representing NXT in the wrong manner, etc). I am sure I can do it for donations only, not a problem. We are a team of more than 10 people (see http://25sda.com for info) and one video takes a few weeks of work to do.

I don't know the community well enough, and I posted my offer a month ago, but got no replies... See https://nxtforum.org/nxt-promotion/supporting-nxt-promotion-with-a-kick-ass-video-animation

You are the first person replying :) The post needs to get to the attention of the right people. And I am not sure who the right people are :)
