Can anyone walk me through on downloading/running/using pywallet for Mac?  I need an unconfirmed transaction deleted and i've looked at about every single topic regarding pywallet, and yet i'm still really confused.  I sent a 13-something transaction to BTCjam the other day and about 11 of those coins were 'real'--the other were the result of a double-spend.  They haven't been confirmed by the blockchain  yet.  Here's the tx id:

Thanks for the help

lazko,

Deleting a specific transaction won't work. You have to delete all of them and then have the bitcoin client re-scan. I deleted just the one and it did not fix the balance issue. I can now confirm that clearing all Txs and having the bitcoin client re-scan does, in fact, restore the proper balance to your wallet.

I can't help you with pywallet for Macs though.

Rescan isn't redownloading though, correct?

No it's not. It just "rescans" the blockchain you have downloaded for any Txs relating to your address. So once you can get Pywallet working, close the BTC-qt client, backup your wallet somewhere, then gut it with Pywallet of all Txs. Once all that's done, just re-open the bitcoin client with the -rescan option and you'll be good to go!

Get a less sucky version of python for mac: http://docs.python.org/2/using/mac.html

Download pywallet by clicking on the blue word pywallet.py on the page https://github.com/joric/pywallet

On the same page, click on the blue word README and read some stuff

Close Bitcoin, back up your wallet.dat

open a console window, change to the directory where you downloaded, type pywallet.py --web

Go to the super-secret web site at http://127.0.0.1:8989/

Under "Delete a key from your wallet:", put in the hash of the transaction you want to delete


Alternately, type "pywallet delete transaction" into Google and go to the first result.

Or the "simple" solution if you just don't get python.

That's basically the jury rigging solution if you really don't get pywallet.

Backup your wallet, just in case.

Import you wallet to blockchain: https://blockchain.info/de/wallet/import-wallet

Delete you bitcoind wallet.

Start bitcoind new, let it create a new wallet.

Send all you coins from blockchain to your new wallet.

Forget about your old wallet.

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update
