I'm new to this and I was wondering if I could derive the private key from Breadwallet with my recovery phrase? I went to BIP32.org, and typed in the recovery phrase. Would the private key be the one listed as "Private key (WIF)"? I need it so I could sweep it in Coinomi to receive the BCH. Thank you!

Please tell me you didn't type your recovery phrase into an online website!!?! Shocked

You downloaded it and used it offline right? Anyway, you're better off using this tool: https://iancoleman.github.io/bip39/

DON'T use the online web version... download it (instructions at the bottom of the page) and use it offline!

For Breadwallet, it uses a derivation path of m/0'/0 for receive addresses and m/0'/1 for change addresses... (the same as MultiBit HD)... so you can enter your recovery phrase where it says "BIP39 Mnemonic"... then click "BIP32" under Derivation Path... then set Client to "Custom" and set the BIP32 Derivation Path to m/0'/0...




your addresses/keys will show at the bottom (You may need to click show more if you've used a lot):




Once you're sure you've copied all the receive addresses/keys that have coins... check your change addresses, set the BIP32 Derivation Path to m/0'/1:

HCP's method works perfectly. Came here to post exactly the same thing as I was unaware that this was already here. Would have saved me a few minutes of Googling if I noticed, but oh well... Cheesy Good post!
