HI Winston, When I moved my IOTA from Bitfinex it seems the Passphrase I used was only 80 characters. I DID DO A SCREENSHOT OF THE TRANSACTION FROM BITFINEX SO I THINK I HAVE THE ADDRESS. When I first opened my wallet the full balance was there (6,077 IOTA). Then I closed the wallet and have never seen it again. I feel like I tried all the options I've been reading about and have put many hours into it to no avail. When I tried Rajiv' method it said:" bad passphrase only 80 characters" . Any ideas? I know you guys must be swamped so thanking you in advance.

Try using Rajiv's tool again, but this time input the number "9" at the very end of your seed. That should coax it into working.

Hi @rajivshah,

First of all, thanks a lot for your tool. Greatly appreciate, I'm trying to get a CURL_UNUSED or CURL_NOT_TRANSITIONED on the seed I've entered as my old seed in the reclaim tool, however your tool has been checking from than 700 adresses now and it cannot find anything while I do see my transactions on iotasear.ch for my old adresses (here and here) however my last transactions are really old, more than 156 days. My old adresses can also be found in custody here: https://gist.githubusercontent.com/cyclux/2bb05d873c4ec6115cad1d100263d489/raw/612a49e46091586957448f6606ea981ab18022e7/snapshot_validation_20171023.txt

How many adresses should I be checking before getting the CURL_UNUSED or CURL_NOT_TRANSITIONED?

Thanks a lot,

Yacine

@le_yass Make sure that you're typing your seed in correctly. If it's not finding the proper address in the snapshot, you don't have the seed that corresponds to that address

@Winston: Thank you much for your answer. I'm pretty sure I'm entering the right seed... I sent it to myself through e-mail back in the days and I just copy-pasted it. Shall I enter the old seed or the new seed in the NodeJS script?

@le_yass Try manually typing the seed. Copy and pasting seeds has been known to lead to lots of issues with special characters being accidentally pasted in. You can avoid this by typing it out

Can someone explain to me where I should be typing the commands as per the balance finder instructions? Where/what is the terminal or powershell?

I can see my balance on the address when I look at the explorer but I cant get the new hot wallet to find it. I have looked on the page listing all of the addresses that were moved and my address does not show up.

Hi @le_yass,
The reason why you're not getting CURL_UNUSED is because since you didn't transition, your addresses were generated with a different algorithm. This is stated in the readme that if you did not transition the tool will not be able to search for your addresses as the current API uses a different algorithm. I can see if I can get a version of the API that generates addresses for pre-transition seeds. However at this time you will have to reclaim as you didn't transition.

Try https://github.com/rajivshah3/IOTA-Balance-Finder/ . It's a dash instead of an underscore

Thanks @rajivshah for the explanation. I get it. I thought the 
transition mentioned in the readme was referring to whether or not I linked my old seed with a new seed using the reclaim tool, which I did. I guess I just have to wait & see & cross my fingers until the IOTA Foundation release my tokens.
Thanks again (and @Winston) for your help!

Cheers,

Yacine

HI Winston, no luck yet. Do I enter no 9 until last or is the 9 at the end in addition to the other? Thank yo

@1machec Enter the number 9 to fill out your seed until it reaches the required 81 character length.

For example, if your seed was 8 characters long: ABCDEFGH
But you needed to fill out a 10 character long seed, you would add the number 9 until the seed was 10 characters long:
ABCDEFGH99

Apply this same principle to your seed.

Hi Winston, still no luck. Just to make sure.
'Run the following commands in Terminal or PowerShell:
Is this the Node.js command prompt field?
Its still telling me my seed is not 81 characters
This is the seed I'm entering into the IOTA Light Wallet 2.5.4 - IRI 1.4.1.2
Any ideas?
Thank you

@1machec I'm not sure then. If the balance finder tool is being this uncooperative for you, I would recommend just manually generating addresses with the wallet, and then comparing each address to the snapshot.

Note that if you've already generated a bunch of addresses and your balance hasn't come back, that means that you'll just need to do the reclaim process anyway. There's really no point in doing this balance finder tool or even manually checking addresses in the snapshot since you know you'll be reclaiming regardless.

So my best advice is to just complete both phases of the reclaim and then wait for the IOTA Foundation to start processing claims

Winston, when using the reclaim tool I see this:
"Proof transaction is pending"
Do I keep clicking the REATTACH button until the Yellow ' Proof transaction is pending" turns to confirmed?

Thank you
