Recover wallet.dat?

Asked by Marco

What is the proposed way of recovering the wallet.dat file? I found /home/phablet/.local/share/org.sambull.bitcoin-app/ubc.wallet but I wonder if it is the correct format.

The ubc.wallet file is the file that bitcoinj saves. This means that any application that uses bitcoinj as its bitcoin library (For example MultiBit) might be able to open the wallet and therefor recover the coin. For example MultiBit.

Annother way would be to install our bitcoin app on an ubuntu pc and then copy the wallet and the blockchain file into the same directory on your pc, then just send the coin to annother address.

I know this is an old question, however just for posterity.

The new python version of the app will soon import the old java wallet file and convert each old address into a BIP32 Key. These keys will be saved in the local SQL database.

Therefore recovering the keys will be a matter of opening the database and dumping the contents of the BIP32Key table.

Can you help with this problem?
