Help post taken from the website: https: // -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.
