Yes, currently... btcrecover only works with Ledger BITCOIN addresses... You'll notice on the Ethereum option that it says "...NOT ledger"

The reason it doesn't work is that for whatever reason Ledger uses a different (non BIP44) derivation path for ETH, which makes it generate different addresses from other ETH wallets when using the same seed mnemonic... I put a pull request in to btcrecover GitHub about this months ago:
Ledger Ethereum Wallet uses a non-BIP44 compatible Derivation Path of m/44'/60'/0'

Add in an "Ethereum Ledger" option to the "Wallet Type" dialog, that uses this path instead of BIP44 m/44'/60'/0'/0'

Your options are:

1. Download my version of btcrseed.py from GitHub and use that... It'll give you an extra "Ethereum Ledger" option when selecting the wallet type...

Or

2. Modify the existing btcrseed.py and change the derivation path on line 1306 from:
Code:
       if not path: path = "m/44'/60'/0'/0/"

To
Code:
       if not path: path = "m/44'/60'/0'"

Note that if you just change the one line of code... It'll break recovery for other ETH wallets like Jaxx, Exodus, Metamask, TREZOR etc.

Instead of manually changing the code you can just run special commands from the command line instead like this:
Code:
./seedrecover.py --wallet-type ethereum --bip32-path "m/44'/60'/0'/" --addr-limit 1

I've helped several people recover bitcoin and altcoins both through full trust where they give me their seed etc. and also just by helping walk people through using different tools like btcrecover. If you need any help let me know.

All my contact information as well as several references can be seen on my website at www.grnqrtr.com

Good to know that it supports custom derivation paths from the command line! Thanks for the heads-up...

I still don't know why Chris hasn't just added the Ledger option to the GUI version tho... It's a pretty simple mod and enables those with a command line phobia easy access

Right guys. I still cant access my bitcoins..
I bought new nano s coz i thought maybe old ledger broke down. But new one says the same invalid recovery phrase.
I know all 24 words are correct (wrote them very slowly) also checked them on BIP39.
just thinking maybe i mix numbers like 5-6 or smth.

I will give 0.5 BCH if someone will help me to sort this out.
Thanks

You best chance is to read post 5&8 in this thread and try to recover your seed with posted tools or with method of attempts and mistakes.As you say that maybe you mix some words and not write them in the proper order,so try to switch word 5 with 6 if you have any doubt that this is a problem.

If we assume that these words are correct,but that is incorrect order then try to use that tools to maybe fix your seed,or download Electrum and start to play with words.I say Electrum because it is much easier to enter words there then type it in Ledger.

Did you try using the seedrecover.py script that comes as part of btcrecover? If you are fairly confident you maybe have one incorrect word or just got two words swapped... and you know at least one of the addresses from that seed, then the script will find your correct seed easily.

Read here: https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover/blob/master/docs/Seedrecover_Quick_Start_Guide.md

Install Python, download the btcrecover package and then run seedrecover.py as per the instructions... it works.

No i didn't use. I'm not confident with my skills to do that Smiley
Do you mean one of the bitcoin address for this wallet? Yes i can find it.
Thanks

If you're not confident installing or using Python, then it is going to be difficult to recover your seed. Your only other option would be to trust someone with your seed and get them to recover it for you... obviously this is a "Bad Idea"™ unless you REALLY trust that person, as once they recovered your correct seed, they would have full access to your wallet!

If you need help getting Python installed... I'm sure myself and/or others here will be able to help walk you through it. It really isn't THAT difficult... and the seedrecover.py script is actually a GUI based recovery tool (it has pretty windows! Smiley)

What operating system are you using? Windows? If so... go here and get Python 2.7.14: https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-2714/

The 64bit version is labelled as "Windows x86-64 MSI installer"
The 32bit version is labelled as "Windows x86 MSI installer"

There are also versions for MacOSX on that page if you're using that operating system.

Yes, you need one of the bitcoin addresses generated by your seed... preferably one of the first addresses generated, as it helps speed up the process (script only has to generate a few addresses to check instead of hundreds etc)

I've used Seed Recover before - it is very straightforward to use, and there are easy to follow steps available on Seed Recover Github that HCP posted already: https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover/blob/master/docs/Seedrecover_Quick_Start_Guide.md. Installing and using Python isn't that difficult, even for a technical newbie.

I would suggest following the instructions given and at least giving it a go yourself. If you absolutely can't use it, then your only option is going to be to trust someone else to do it for you.

Yes, I walked the OP through the process of using the "seedrecover" script that comes with btcrecover to find the error in the recovery phrase that the user had written down.

Was relatively straight forward and simple.
