Mandatory Wallet Upgrade v0.12.1.11

Attention! TUNE has been in the cauldron for the last few weeks now and we are here to answer your agonizing cries. But like any revolutionary precursor, we must prepare for change! The Core wallet will be available on the web page here, upgrading is mandatory by March 12, 2018. AS ALWAYS, please remember to backup your wallet.dat file before doing any upgrades. Release v0.12.1.11 is the latest stable build which all users & pool operators and exchanges will need to upgrade to.

VERY IMPORTANT: Your wallets will not stay on the correct blockchain, if you are running any earlier releases!

Verify your on the correct blockchain

  1. Open the block explorer block count api
  2. Open the block explorer block hash api – 49874
    You can change the number in the url to the one on the block count to get the block hash for that block number
  3. Check if your blockchain current number of blocks matches the block count from the api
    If your blocks match then you are on the correct chain. If not, please check your wallet version and your “tune.conf” file for any discrepancies.

New Wallet Installations

Windows:

  1. Download the relevant zip file
  2. Download the relevant snapshot
  3. Extract the wallet and the snapshot
  4. Open extracted wallet folder and execute the “tune-qt.exe” application
  5. Choose a wallet data directory or use the default and click “OK”
  6. Firewall Warning – If Windows Security Alert popups, please click “Allow access”
  7. Tune Wallet will now open and start to synchronize the blockchain
Fast Track Synchronize (Optional)
  1. Close the qt wallet
  2. Open your wallet data directory, if you used the default directory you will find it on your windows data partition
    • E.g: C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Roaming\TuneCore
    • From your Run Command type: %appdata%\TuneCore
  3. Copy the snapshot block’s folder into your wallet data directory and select replacing the files in the destination folder
  4. Remove all files in the wallet data directory except for “wallet.dat”, “masternode.conf,” & “tune.conf”
  5. Execute the “tune-qt.exe” application again. It will take a bit longer to open because it’s validating the newly added blocks
  6. Your blockchain sync will now be much further along 🙂 Wait for the blockchain to sync and the other network information.
  7. Nope, that is it 😛 No further action required. Congratulations you are on the correct TUN chain!

FAQ

Q: Will I lose my coins after the upgrade?
A: No, you will not lose your coins after the upgrade. In fact, we always recommend to upgrade to our latest wallet to ensure its security. The only coins that you might “lose” is coins that got mined while on the wrong chain, but then the same rules would apply as stale and orphaned blocks, so unfortunately you cannot claim any found block rewards.
