Help post taken from the site:
https: //coinomi.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/29000016813 -claiming-your-forked-coins

Coinomi supports hundreds of coins, some of them are forks from other coins. Read this article to see which forks are supported, and when they started. You might have some forked coins you didn't even know about! They can be claimed following the instructions below:

1 - Update the app
First of all make sure that you have the most recent version of Coinomi. Support for newer forks comes with new app updates (CLO is not yet available, the update for it will come soon)

2 - Select the coin
Open the left side menu, then hit the “+COINS” button and select the forked coin you want to claim.

3 - Set the derivation path
A pop-up dialogue will appear, asking if the coin should be added.
A) If you are claiming coins from a different wallet, just confirm your password and move on to step 4.
B) If you already had coins in Coinomi at the time of the fork, hit the “ADVANCED SETTINGS” button. In the “Derivation Path” enter:
•   M/44H/0H/0H for coins forked from the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain (Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin Gold (BTG), Bitcoin Atom (BTA), Bitcore (BTX), Bitcoin Private (BTCP))
•   M/44H/2H/0H for coins forked from the Litecoin (LTC) blockchain (Litecoin Cash (LCC))
•   M/44H/147H/0H for coins forked from the ZClassic (ZCL) blockchain (Bitcoin Private (BTCP))
•   M/44H/61H/0H for coins forked from the Ethereum Classic (ETC) blockchain (Callisto (CLO))

4 - Add the wallet
Click "add". Now you have a brand new wallet to hold your forked coins!
A) If you are claiming coins from a different wallet, move on straight to step 5.
B) If you already had coins in Coinomi at the time of the fork, you're done! Your new wallet is now ready! After you see your balance, we recommend you add a default wallet of that coin (without altering the derivation path). Copy its address and send your coins to it. This way you won't have to change the derivation path every time you need to restore your wallet on a new phone. After the transaction confirms, you can tap+hold the wallet with the altered path to delete it. Don't proceed to step 5, you're already finished.

5 - Prepare to sweep
Open the new wallet, click on ".../Sweep Wallet" and choose the coin you want to sweep. For example, if claiming the BCH fork, choose "BitcoinCash".

6 - Sweep the private key from the other wallet
Paste or scan the private key of an address that had funds at the time of the fork, press "next" and confirm. Read this article to learn how to get the private keys from different wallets and providers. The forked coins should now appear in your Coinomi wallet, while your original coins are still untouched. Repeat this step for every address that has a balance of the forked coin. If you have any problems sweeping please consult this article.
Alternatively, instead of doing all the sweeping, if the other wallet is an HD wallet following BIP32/39/44, you can simply restore its recovery phrase directly into Coinomi (make sure you backed up your current phrase if you have any coins there). Recovering brings all the transaction history and coins from the other wallet, so you can follow option B from steps 3 and 4.

So after August 1, 2017, with the Bitcoin Cash fork, many other BTC forks have come up, and some of them reasonably valuable, like Bitcoin Gold.

I'll teach you how to rescue most of them. I do not like to install obscure forks on my computer for security reasons (they may be infected with viruses and such). I think a lot of people think like me. That way I only recover forks so I can use a safe wallet known to the community.

Coinomi's Android wallet has a great reputation in the community and supports most of these forks. I'll teach you how to recover several forks here, quite simply.

Important detail: Coinomi only accepts the private key from Legacy addresses (starting with 1) and Segwit P2SH (starting with 3). Segwit P2WPKH addresses (starting with bch1) can not be retrieved using this method.

These are the Forks supported by Coinomi:

Name                 Date of Fork            Price USD (03/18/2018)
Bitcoin Cash        08/01/2017                           920
Bitcoin Gold         10/24/2017                           60
Bitcore                11/2/2017                              7
Bitcoin Atom        1/24/2018                             15
BitcoinPrivate        2/28/2018                            31

If you had bitcoin on those dates, you have these coins at your address. Not all of these coins are 1: 1 with bitcoin, some like Bitcore are 1: 0.5 (0.5 BTX for each BTC).

To rescue the forks, just follow these steps.

1 - Move all your bitcoins to another portfolio (most important step, since you are exposing your seed)

2 - Download Coinomi:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.coinomi.wallet

3 - Within Coinomi, add these coins: Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Bitcore, Bitcoin Atom and Bitcoin Private.

4 - In your browser, in private mode, or on an offline computer, go to this website (BIP39 Mnemonic Code):
https://coinomi.com/recovery-phrase-tool.html

Put your Recovery Phrase, or Seed (Remember to move all your coins before to another wallet)
In the "Coin" box, choose Bitcoin.
Still on the BIP39 Mnemonic Code site, scroll down to Derived Address.

5 - Open your Coinomi Wallet and open the wallet of each of the coins mentioned above. Click on the QR Code icon (in the upper right corner) and scan each Private Address QR Code that appears on the site bip39, until you have redeemed the entire balance.

6- Repeat for each coin you want to recover.

I recovered all the forks well using this method, no problem.
There are many other forks, this site shows most (https://www.btcdiv.com).

I had found this article on reddit and did not know that the true origin of it was from the post you mentioned. I have already edited the post and put the help source from which I got the help instructions. Thanks for the alert.

At least the source is in OP now but he originally didn't have any intentions to disclose the source. He wanted to get some merits by misleading others into believing he wrote that himself.

Here is the link, but I think they deleted. They must have also discovered a true source of the post and deleted the post copied

EcuaMobi .... You were late in the post, I already edited and put the official information of the coinomi wallet. Honestly your opinion means nothing to me.
