Long story short...
I reinstalled the btc, eth and ltc apps on the nano. (a couple of times).
Then, sent some coins which showed up.

Does this affect in any way the initial 24 word recovery phrase?

By that I mean will these new wallet addresses still be protected by the initial config?

Are you asking if your 24 word recovery phrase is still valid after being used? Yes.

You can restore your wallet as many times as you want and the seed will always be the same.

All the addresses for ALL of the "apps" on your Ledger Nano S are derived from one seed... which is backed up by your 24 word recovery phrase.

If you uninstall an "app"... and then re-install... it does NOT generate a new wallet with new/different addresses... it will regenerate EXACTLY the same wallet as before you uninstalled it! Wink

Thank you. That's exactly what I was asking. Wasn't sure if by reinstalling the apps you basically reset everything or the seed remains the same.

thx for clarifying
