The Ledger Nano S firmware 1.5.5 update is now available and contains new algorithms and security updates. We recommend Nano S users to update to it.

Read more here: https://www.ledger.fr/2019/01/16/ledger-releases-a-new-nano-s-firmware-update/

These 3rd party apps are not yet available on 1.5.5: Aion, Aeternity and Nimiq.

Let us know if someone did update their ledger, if all is good and nothing errors encountered as I see no reason to update the firmware asap.

I never rush to update may ledger. Actually I barely plug it on my computer, as I put money there I don't plan to use soon

One thing I really miss in those updates are the forks support. Btcp for example isn't working until now. There is a support using btcp Electrum, but it doesn't support segwit addresses.

Makes no sense for me to update immediately, even if Ledger say : "The update to firmware version 1.5.5 includes a series of security improvements for the Ledger Nano S.", but there is nothing so critical in previous firmware which can endanger our coins.

I just read how to Update Ledger Nano S firmware since this is first time that we have Ledger Live, instead Chrome app. Anyone who wants to update firmware have to pay attention to three things :

  • Ledger Live version need to be 1.3
  • Firmware need to be 1.4.2
  • All coin apps should be uninstalled.

It is also important to check your seed - whether the backup is still where you put it, and is this seed correct. If something goes wrong, this is only way to recover coins.

I agree with you guys that there are no need to upgrade urgently. Especially for people like me who don't plug my Ledger wallet very often.
I read comments on Twitter about update and quite many people are complaining that after firmware update they can install much less apps, for example one guy said that he had 5 apps previously and now there is enough storage only for 2 apps. While Ledger said that available storage will decrease only slightly. Maybe it's their attempt to force users to buy New Ledger X wallet which has bigger storage.

You don't need to update Ledger when you hardly use it, let alone store coins.

Damn, I won't upgrade my Ledger then. Well, not so surprising considering they need to sell as many products as possible to get profits. Business will always be business.

I'd appreciate it if you resize the pic tbh.

Nope, I will wait for a month or so first. Then we will see if there is no bug or anything. I would not want the electrum problem happen to me Cheesy

I updated my Ledger wallet today. Memory is really less. I used to have 5 coins available. Now if I load BTC and XRP into my wallet, nothing else fits. If I download BTC and do not download XRP, then I can install 3 more of my coins. The problem is the large size of the application for XRP as it seemed to me.
Otherwise, everything is working fine, without errors.

I'm getting  time out errors.

Ledger Live just sits on the "Allow Ledger Manger on your device" for several minutes after clicking the "yes" option on the device... and eventually the time-out error occurs. I assume that this is most likely because the Ledger servers are being hammered by everyone trying to update and failing (and all the "MCU Firmware not genuine" errors causing panic and people reinstalling etc).

I am becoming more and more discouraged by the "quality" of Ledger and their software and updates. Things just seem to be going from bad to worse. Sad Undecided


NOTE: after several retries, I finally managed to get "Manager" opened... it is taking nearly 2 minutes to uninstall each app Undecided

This might the cause of so many people now trying to update. I will wait for at least a month before I will update.

I wonder why it takes too much time to uninstall an app. How about installing?

I wonder why it takes too much time to uninstall an app. How about installing?
After I finally got the firmware update installed... it seems to be a bit better about 20-25 secs to uninstall an app... and around 20-25 seconds to install an app.

What hasn't got better is the number of apps that can be installed. Prior to the update (ie. on the 1.4.2 firmware) I had BTC, BCH, BTG, DOGE, LTC, ETH and STELLAR installed... as well as the "Recovery Check" app.

Now, if I install BTC (and 2-3 of the BTC derivative coins) and ETH... I can't install anything else at all Sad Undecided

That is a severe downgrade and worse than the original Ledger problems. I believe it is the ETH app that is causing the issues... without it, I can install BTC (and all the derivativee coins BCH, BTG, DOGE and LTC) and STELLAR and the "recovery check" app.

Seems like 1 step forward 3 steps back for each Ledger "update". Undecided

Like before Ledger servers are overloaded, and because of that users have big problems with updating. Ledger is aware of this and warn users to be patient, or even better to not rush with this update. Regarding problem with number of apps, they solve this with new Ledger X - Nano S is just limited for that matter.

I am becoming more and more discouraged by the "quality" of Ledger and their software and updates. Things just seem to be going from bad to worse. Sad Undecided

This is unfortunately a reality, they always have problems when new firmware is out, but many users also make problems to themselves by not reading how to update. I am not sure why users get MCU Firmware not genuine, is this have anything with server overloaded or it is related to something else?

-snip-
I had no problems at all updating the firmware, but running in to the same problems, if not worse, installing apps. Currently taking up to a minute to install an app. I've put on BTC and ETH, and now only have enough space to install other BTC-based coins.

I'm not big in to alts, so it's not a big issue for me, but I can see how that would be really annoying for people who were. As you say, it seems like a big step backwards, almost as it they want people to buy their new Nano X, which says it will support 100 apps at once. This feels almost like planned obsolescence, similar to when Apple deliberately slow down their old models to force people to upgrade. I'm not impressed at all.

Just updated. Installing the apps took a minute or so per app, but smooth experience overall nonetheless.

Since this issue is mentionned by Ledger in their HOWTO, I guess it can also occur randomly. I guess they would know how/why but won't share obviously Wink

Yes, this is correct since the update covers for ETH app as grows in size as erc20 tokens will be available in the ledger live app soon.

An update from Ledger
Our engineers are working on a solution to optimize the size of the ETH app, while preserving token support. The solution will take several weeks to be deployed but will enable you to install more apps than is currently possible with firmware 1.5.5.

Disclaimer: I didn't update my ledger yet.

Not sure how this justifies the increase.
Ledger Nano already supports ERC20 in 1.4.X in Metamask. Meaning on the app side on the ledger everything needed is already there...
Can't figure out why it increased that much.

Oh well... as Lucius said, I'm not that big into Alts either... so it isn't a 'huge' deal... more of an annoyance than anything else. Hopefully the announced ETH update will improve things... hoping to at least get back to the number of apps I had previously.

The Nano S is a great device (as is my Trezor One)... and I just don't see enough benefits to justify spending the money being asked for the Nano X (or the Trezor T for that matter).

It's because metamask is different from ledger live, and many users want to use the ledger live as all in one wallet software with nano s without any other third party app.

Sorry but either you have no clue, or you are completely missing the point.

The app on the Ledger has nothing to do with ledger live. This app had already the ability to handle ERC20 tokens transaction, Metamask integration is the proof, the compatibility with DDEX is another evidence of that.

To make it work with ledger live they just had to adapt the ledger live app, no need to make any modification to the app on the ledger.
