    Restore wallet can't select file darkcoin_wallet_backup_2014-xx-xx Not working

    @woods I'm not sure about your specific Android device. I personally use on Android and it seems to give me lots of options to choose which app should open a given file. You can also try using an older v6.x build of the Android wallet here...

    procedure for setting up a 2nd computer in another country with the same wallet

    Rescan/reindex should show your balance. But it is not recommended to share the same wallet file with multiple devices, why not just send the Dash to an address in the new wallet? If you don't explicitly need a full Dash Core wallet, then by all means you should definitely be running a lite...

    Masternode Guides - (All Formats / All Options)

    That would make sense. Can we get another two pinned threads going to track progress for current installation tools on both mainnet and testnet?

    dash core: is the wallet encryption "passphrase" ACTUALLY the "seed"?

    Sure. Make sure you don't have any Dash stored in your current wallet or back it up safely. Then delete or rename the wallet.dat file in your data directory, e.g. ~/.dashcore on Linux. Start Dash with dash-qt --usehd and verify the HD indicator is present in the lower right corner of the...

    Corrupt dashman installer???
