So we can only recover our passphrases from wallet dot mynxt dot info is we use Windows or Linux?? Pls tell me this isn't true. As a Mac user, that would truly suck. Furthermore, I can't use Bootcamp to partition my disk -- which I wouldn't want to ever do in the first place -- because you need at least 50GB free and I only have 25GB free, after having decluttered everything over the course of 4 hrs yesterday.

I could, of course, just create a new acct in the Nxt Client and transfer from from one to the other, but my understanding is that my ARDR would be lost in the process.

You could install the free "Asset Plugin" for mynxt.info (instructions here) and transfer the ARDR assets from mynxt.info to the official Nxt client.

Please do as Jose suggested. Sadly the developers did not provide an executable of the myNXT wallet viewer in Mac, and attempts to build from source only worked for specific OS X versions. So Mac users are encouraged to create a new account in the official Nxt Client and transfer their NXT and assets (including ARDR) to the new account.

from the faq

I chose option 1
"Alternatively, if you don't want to download the Nxt Client, you can use the Jelurida public Nxt node."

Using the public node will i be able to participate in ardr or nxt snapshots for future tokens?

Can someone explain to me why there was a mynxt wallet when the jelurida public node
seems to do the exact same thing

Ok. Thanks for getting back. Will attempt what you said, though I'm not confident in myself to move ARDR over. Does this work like Ethereum blockchain, where tokens have to be removed first before remaining Ether (gas) is removed?
That is, do I transfer ARDR first and *then* transfer NXT?

The public node is a public wallet, that allows you to create Nxt accounts and save the account passphrase. If you have the passphrase for your Nxt account, you'll be able to claim in Ardor, after launch, the tokens you earned.

And the reason why myNXT wallet existed is because in 2014 (when it started working) there was no light client option, nor a public trusted node like the one provided by Jelurida. This node did not exist over a year ago. Also, even after a trusted public node existed, the myNXT wallet could be convenient for many users because it was very simple to operate compared to the full Nxt wallet.

Transferring an asset (like ARDR) in the Nxt blockchain costs the basic transaction fee, which is 1 NXT. So if you have for instance 2,000 NXT and 1,000 ARDR and want to transfer them all to another Nxt account, you transfer first your ARDR (1,999 NXT left) and then you transfer 1,998 NXT, leaving the last one aside for this second transaction fee.

Hello,
Previously I used the myNext wallet and moving to the Nxt Client. I'm a newbie and not get it fully. I've managed to download the passphrase file. And also to decrypt it. So now I've several things to fill in somewhere. But I'm a bit lost.
I've my password to get into myNext wallet (is useless now, I guess)
I started the Nxt Client. It asked whether I'm new or returning. I choose returning and it asked my account address: NXT-etc-etc-etc-etc. Then I started downloading the Blockchain (it still is....). I saw my balance (public information?) and later it disappears in my dashboard (now it's 0, all of a sudden  ???)
I haven't fill in any passphrase yet. I see a 'set account info', there is a field for a password. Is that yet another password or should i fill in the password (long String) that is encrypted in the downloaded file or do I have to fill in the 'restore passphase'?

Regards,

Hello djAnton,

let's clear a bit the confusion.

Previously I used the myNext wallet and moving to the Nxt Client. I'm a newbie and not get it fully. I've managed to download the passphrase file. And also to decrypt it. So now I've several things to fill in somewhere. But I'm a bit lost.

Correct, once you have downloaded & decrypted your myNXT wallet and you can access the Nxt account using the Nxt Client, you don't need the myNXT master password anymore.

I started the Nxt Client. It asked whether I'm new or returning. I choose returning and it asked my account address: NXT-etc-etc-etc-etc. Then I started downloading the Blockchain (it still is....). I saw my balance (public information?) and later it disappears in my dashboard (now it's 0, all of a sudden  ???)

When you open in the Nxt Client a specific NXT address, as you say there's only public information visible. You're seeing the account with the official Nxt Client interface, but other than that it's not essentially different from a blockchain explorer. In this sense, you haven't really "logged in" to the account. To send any transactions, or to access any private data (like contents of an encrypted message received in the account) that's when you need to prove you own the private key for the account - the passphrase you obtained.

And the balance is 0 because, as you chose to install Nxt as full client and not light client, it is downloading to your computer a copy of the blockchain. And then your Nxt Client only knows about the blockchain blocks that have been retrieved so far. This means that you'll see the account balance corresponding to the latest block you've downloaded. Once the blockchain is fully downloaded, you'll see the account balance and details updated to the current Nxt block.

I haven't fill in any passphrase yet. I see a 'set account info', there is a field for a password. Is that yet another password or should i fill in the password (long String) that is encrypted in the downloaded file or do I have to fill in the 'restore passphase'?

I think I answered this above, but as said, the passphrase is only needed when you have to prove ownership of the account. This is decrypting any encrypted stuff for your eyes only, or signing/sending transactions from the account. Other than using it when the client asks you to introduce it, remember to keep the passphrase securely and privately saved because it is the real key to the control of your account.

Hi guys. I am a little stuck and need some help.

I set up and downloaded the ardor wallet through Nxt.
I received a NXT address. Following this I transferred the ardor coins to this address.
A few months later I went to transfer these coins back out to an exchange to sell them. At this point i was asked for a passphrase which never happened before. Even when I logged in to the Nxt wallet.
I did have a passphrase written down which I then used. However, a message came up to say the passphrase was incorrect. It was at this point I noticed I had a second NXT adress and for this NXT address, it seems the passphrase is connected to that.
I reloaded the Nxt wallet and used this second NXT address to log in with the passphrase I had and this worked successfully. However, upon doing this, it created a new NXT address as well as showing the original NXT address under accounts I had to which I had transferred the coins / tokens
My issue is I can see my tokens but I can not transfer these tokens.

Hi,

(Updated: please ignore, I have transferred the NXT to another account. I am still interested in a solution, but it is not important anymore.
MODs: feel free to delete this post, I do not see how I could do it)

as suggested I have downloaded my wallet.json.aes.
Additionally, I have downloaded the MyNxt Wallet Viewer
   myNXTWalletViewer_Ubuntu_64bit_binary
to my Ubuntu 16.04 laptop.

However, I could not start the viewer
 (./myNXTWalletViewer_Ubuntu_64bit_binary: error while loading shared libraries: libpolarssl.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or director).

As far as I understood, the PolarSSL has been renamed to libmbedtls, which I have tried to install, but could not solve the problem. 

Could you give me a hint on how to solve this problem or could someone recompile myNXTWalletViewer_Ubuntu_64bit_binary with the actual library?

Is there any way to check whether my downloaded wallet is valid or not ( so that in case of say a missing byte I could still decide to transfer the NXT tonight to another account)?

Thank you,
Wolfgang

Hi 40ps,

I replied to your PM, you brought a good point. I've duplicated your issue with Ubuntu Xenial. As you say, polarssl became mbedtls in the repositories and thus Ubuntu 16+ may return either dependency errors (when running the available wallet viewer binary) or build errors if compiling from source. Patching the original C++ code is beyond my capabilities, so what worked for me in Ubuntu 16 is installing the late polarssl manually from their download archives.

So to fix the issue, grab https://tls.mbed.org/download/start/polarssl-1.3.9-gpl.tgz , open a shell in the download folder, and do

Code: [Select]
tar xvfz polarssl-1.3.9-gpl.tgz
cd polarssl-1.3.9
make
sudo make install

Now polarssl is in your system, and the wallet viewer executable should not fail. You can also build the wallet viewer from source on Ubuntu 16+ if you want.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install scons libqt4-dev git
git clone https://github.com/mynxt-info/WalletViewer.git
cd WalletViewer
scons

I have downloaded and decrypted the backup, and it gave me a “id” which is 18 numbers and a “password” which is 67 characters.  I have also downloaded the NXT client.  I’d like to send this ARDR to another NXT account I created where I actually have a “passphrase” which is some random words.

When I go to My Assets and see the ARDR Balance then click on transfer, I am asked to type in the receiving address, the amount, the fee and the passphrase.  This is where I run into an issue.

When it asks me for the passphrase, I put in the “password” I decrypted and I am getting the error “Incorrect passphrase”.   Granted, I don’t have any nxt for the fee yet.  However, should the error message be "no fee"?

Is the password I decrypted able to use to sign transactions?  Is there an additional step I missed?

Please help.

I simply want to confirm that I was able to follow these steps and could run myNXTWallet to see my myNXTWallet backup.

Please help.

The myNXT wallet viewer was written long ago and it uses old names... "ID" is the Nxt address in the old numeric format, instead of the now known Reed-Solomon format, and "Password" is the passphrase for the address. So that is the string you need to add when you're sending a transaction with the Nxt Client and it asks you for the passphrase.

I understand you accessed the account using the address as NXT-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXX format (either because you have it from the myNXT wallet dashboard, or because you searched the numeric format in a block explorer). If you were trying to send ARDR from the same address you got the wallet backup for, the passphrase should work. Maybe an error when typing, or copy-pasting? Have you tried to right click on the "Password" field in the wallet viewer, hit Copy and then Paste in the Nxt Client passphrase field?

No. The "password" decrypted by the myNXT Wallet Viewer will lead to the account ID you could see in your myNXT web wallet (unless you had more than one account in the web wallet, then you will decrypt more than one password).

Most likely you made a mistake when logging in to the Nxt Client. When you see the myNXT decrypted wallet contents, right click on the password and select Copy. Then make sure you select the passphrase login option in the Nxt Client splash page, the key icon, and right click - paste the password in the box.

Hi VanBreuk, thank you for taking the time to respond, but it is no irrelevant.  My NXT is now allowing people to send ARDR directly from its website to a new wallet.  I simply created a new wallet and sent the ARDR to it!!  All good! Thank you!

 I could really use some advice and would appreciate any help. I have owned some Ardor for a while , held in mynxt and I just found out about the MYNXT deletion / shutdown and since it was after Dec 1, I am using the "Download Backup Wallet" method to try and access my ARDOR balance and send from it. Following the advice on the forums , So far I have accessed the passphrase in the MYNXT wallet as described and opened it up , saved it . I downloaded the NXT Client. I log in using the original NXT ID / address or the passphrase with the ardor balance and get into my client OK. The problem I have is I see the balance of my Ardor only under the assets tab ,  I am not able to send any assets out. Sometimes it says "insufficient balance" when I try to send just a small amount. Would I be better off using the  Jeluridia Ardor site to try and access the ardor? Whenever I log out of the client I need to re-boot my PC to access it again , probably unrelated but I thought worth mentioning. "Database may already be in use"
 What I would like to do is have access to my ARDR balance.
