1  Other / MultiBit / Recover MultibitHD wallet without WORDs on: June 10, 2017, 11:41:08 PM
Hi, hope this might help some.

My wallet was working perfectly fine until yesterday, i couldn't get it even when using the right password.
It gave the legendary error of can't open wallet using this password. I had enough coins there that i could've died of heart attack in a week.

My stupidity, I secured my MultibitHD wallet too hard that i forgot the RAR file password which had the 12 Words of my wallet.
I had corrupt mbhd.wallet.aes and good zip.aes backup....useless backup.

Solution is simple though:

Recover your 12 words using this tool if you have wallet password: (Thanks to internet)

Lesson:
Never use Multibit-HD
