Instructions for previous clients:

From v6 clients

    Close your Okcash client, replace it with the v6.9.0.3 , open your client and you are done.

From old clients (v1-2-3-4-5)

    Close your Okcash client, replace it with the v6.9.0.3 , open your client, let it reindex the chain (one time only, takes 3 hrs aprox. the wallet will close itself when done) check your wallet is closed, open it and you are done.
    (If cant sync or don't want to wait for the reindex you can re-download the latest ok-blockchain)

Create and Restore an Okcash HD Wallet
---
 
When you load the new Okcash HD wallet for the first time, it will create a new HD account for you and set it as default, any new addresses generated will be from the default HD account [unique to you].
However, as this is pre-generated and not easy to remember, we suggest you to proceed to create a new HD account using a mnemonic sentence.

Always backup your wallet.dat first!

              Creating an Okcash HD wallet:

                     1. Turn off the OK Client, save your wallet.dat [Backup] and rename it
                     2. Turn on the latest OK Client
                     3. Create a new Okcash HD wallet[Account] (OK Tools > Get a new HD Wallet) and give it a name
                     4. Go to "OK Tools > Advanced HD config" and make sure the new HD account
                        you just named is showing as "default"
                     5. Send some Okcash from your old wallet to the new one

              Recovering / Restoring an Okcash HD wallet:

                     1. Turn off the OK Client, save your wallet.dat [Backup] and rename it
                     2. Turn on the latest OK Client
                     3. Go to "OK Tools > Import an HD Wallet" and complete the steps
                     4. Go to "OK Tools > Debug Console" and type scanforalltxns 2730690
                     5. You should see your test transaction showing up

             Your new Okcash HD wallet is setup, and the mnemonic sentence + optional password
             is all you need to access all new created addresses.

How to run an AppImage on Linux:
---

Before you can run an AppImage, you need to make it executable. This is a Linux security feature. There are three main ways to make an AppImage executable:

1. With the GUI

    Open your file manager and browse to the location of the AppImage
    Right-click on the AppImage and click the 'Properties' entry
    Switch to the Permissions tab and
    Click the 'Allow executing file as program' checkbox if you are using a Nautilus-based file manager (Files, Nemo, Caja), or click the 'Is executable' checkbox if you are using Dolphin, or change the 'Execute' drop down list to 'Anyone' if you are using PCManFM
    Close the dialog
    Double-click on the AppImage file to run

2. On the command line

chmod a+x Some.AppImage
