Hi

I accidentally sent Bitcoin from my exchange wallet to my ledger Bitcoin cash split wallet. The transaction is confirmed in block chain and i tried the recovery process suggested by ledger to recover my bitcoin. unfortunately the ledger version 1.8.5 that is required to carry out this process cant be found on chrome. only the updated version is available and doesn't work after following the instructions given by ledger. i found a downloaded v 1.8.5 from the website below and honestly am not sure if its a good idea to download it...

https://github.com/LedgerHQ/ledger-wallet-chrome/releases

I will really appreciate your suggestion and advice on how to go about it please. i'm really going mental!!!!


Thanks

Yes thats the right github page.

If you go to their official site and scroll to the bottom where it says "github" it sends you here: https://github.com/LedgerHQ
Same start of the link you posted.

I haven't used ledger yet but I think it should be fairly straightforward to recover your bch.

It's actually pretty easy to recover BTC sent to BCH address (or BCH sent to BTC address), assuming you control the private keys for the address that the coins have been sent to...

Unfortunately, with regards to the Ledger, the methods required for recovery will require that you use your wallet seed (there is not other way to get the private keys out)... this could potentially expose all the wallets you have created with that seed.

Basically:

1. Goto: https://iancoleman.io/bip39/ and create an offline copy of it ("Offline Usage" instructions at bottom of page)
2. Using offline copy on offline computer, enter your seed as BIP39 Mnemonic
3. Select "BCH - Bitcoin Cash" as the "Coin"
4. All you addresses/private keys will be displayed at the bottom
5. Find the address you sent to, copy the matching private key
6. Either import or sweep that private key into the BTC wallet of your choice.

Optional, but recommended: Create a completely new seed for your Ledger and send all your coins to the new wallets.
