Hello,

please help. After spending several hours on this, I can't find the fix.

I sent 2.37Gi 1 year 2 months ago

https://thetangle.org/address/MHKQ9ONTWNWPRRDIQHEAPOSUFVWGDTHTQPZBIGPZBWMFXBBTOABISVHZBHQEDAKCSDYUPCZDPHSS9UKRA

  • Can't reattach, gives me Error: Invalid bundle: [object Object]
  • Can't promote - Error: Request error: Invalid transaction, missing: RLQMSUSWTQZNBMAREEUSRIMKMXLJI99XQCPIRVSOSEWSHLDETMTLNVXGVSPVY9ASLBZJHRPCQERZA9999
  • The balance of 2.37Gi is still visible in the sending account
  • When trying to resent in the light wallet to the same address again, it gives me this error:
ERROR: PRIVATE KEY REUSE DETECTED!
You are attempting to sign a transaction with input that have an already been used. IOTA uses Winternitz one-time signature (W-OTS) scheme, due to it's `one-time` nature, the security of funds in an address decreases rapidly if you re-sign new transactions using the same key. Please wait for previous transaction to confirm, e.g. by promoting/reattaching, before sending another transaction.

I've only discovered by trying to send from IOTA light wallet to Trinity wallet to store on Ledget Nano S.

Thank you!
Dobrick

Hi @dobrick,

welcome to Hello IOTA!
I couldn't help you during today's snapshot, but now the nodes are getting up again and your transaction is confirmed now.
For any transaction this old, the trick is to find a node that kept the old database throughout all the snapshots and use that node to reattach it.  
One node that is such a so called "permanode" is this one: https://perma.iota.partners
All I had to do was to reattach and promote your old transaction using this node. I did it via https://thoralf-m.github.io/Promoter/
You're welcome. Smile


I wouldn't be able to help anyone without thetangle.org-explorer. If you feel like you want to support its developer Mathieu Viossat in maintaining his service, please consider a donation to the address shown here: https://thetangle.org/about. Thank you!

Awesome! thank you so much! I tried permanode solution as well, but didn't know the notes were down. Smile

Hmm. How long does it take for the balance to appear in the new account in the light iota wallet?

The transaction says "complete" at thetangle.org,
https://thetangle.org/address/MHKQ9ONTWNWPRRDIQHEAPOSUFVWGDTHTQPZBIGPZBWMFXBBTOABISVHZBHQEDAKCSDYUPCZDPHSS9UKRA

but it shows as "pending" in the wallet still. I tried to rebroadcasting, promoting and reattaching many times. 


The 2.3Gi balance still shows up at the old address.

Thank you!

Hmm. To me it looks like you're just looking at the wrong transaction.
This one got confirmed: 
https://thetangle.org/transaction/HWROQLPT9CWSVXHVVNPEHXXYQAXAOATFADB9KUZECMMSMUYVVVVQGOIEIU9INK9SWKFZETCYNAWY99999
This one will stay pending forever: https://thetangle.org/transaction/PRYRDTQETZAKMZSWRYKJPMNSJQNYUTYNZAUBJSVPBJENDXTDPVK9UOPHJVOCPIFLJPQMQSXXATZSZ9999

Oh, and since the Lightwallet doesn't get any updates anymore, switching to Trinity really sounds like a great idea! Even more so with the Ledger. Smile

Hi @CryptoHamster, thank you! You are right, it was an issue with the light wallet. Trinity shows everything correctly.
