I made an updated bootstrap.dat file for people having trouble syncing their client.

It goes up to block 2014300 which was staked on Wed May  2 12:42:40 UTC 2018.

It's available as a download here:

  bootstrap.dat

or as a torrent here:

  bootstrap.dat.torrent

Download it, put it into the same folder as your CLAM wallet.dat, then restart the client.

If you are using the QT client, it will say "importing blocks" in the lower left corner while the bootstrap.dat file is imported. That is how you can tell that the file is being used.

It will take a while to import it, but it will be a lot faster than trying to sync using the p2p network.

When it is done, the client will rename the file to bootstrap.dat.old and won't look at it again.

Once it has been renamed you can delete it if you like.

To verify that you have the right file:

Quote
$ sha256sum bootstrap.dat
6295b6c83137e22baada6b2204cedfaa6cda79dbb37c246ed15c8b3f548278e4  bootstrap.dat

Edit: I also made a series of 'partial' bootstrap files. Each one contains the block data for 10,000 blocks.

  https://s3.amazonaws.com/dooglus/bootstrap-000.dat is blocks 0 through 9999
  https://s3.amazonaws.com/dooglus/bootstrap-001.dat is blocks 10000 through 19999
  https://s3.amazonaws.com/dooglus/bootstrap-002.dat is blocks 20000 through 29999
  etc.

I'll add a new one for each new set of 10k blocks. Currently they go up to bootstrap-200.dat

So if you already have everything up to block 492123 and want to get up to date, download the -049, -050, etc. files, append them all together in order into bootstrap.dat in the same folder as your CLAM wallet.dat and restart the client.

In Windows you can append the files together by running "cmd", and using something like:

Code:
copy /b bootstrap-*.dat bootstrap.dat

In Linux the command would be:

Code:
cat bootstrap-*.dat > bootstrap.dat


Is this for real bootstrap is 2.4 GB ?  That is so large I think .

It's 2,565,076,446 bytes and contains 2,027,900 blocks.

That's an average of just 1,265 bytes per block which isn't very much.

any solution why wallet not imported  full bootstrap?

Did the bootstrap.dat file get renamed to bootstrap.dat.old? That's what happens when the client has finished importing blocks from it.

Basically, dooglus is trying to determine if the wallet thinks it imported the full bootstrap.

I had this problem before.  Tried to sync several times.  It turns out the torrent download I had was corrupt.  After forcing utorrent to recheck, it repaired the file by redownloading the bad part.  It ran smooth after that.  I suggest you checksum the bootstrap file (as it would have saved me a couple of days of hassle).

Yes, it's already renamed and wallet starts synchronizing with network, although still in Nov. 2017(now, after  week of sync reached 12 Jan.2018)

Appears you downloaded an older bootstrap.
Seems, from the post, that the file is now up to:  Sat May 12 01:37:52 UTC 2018

In any case, you're almost done.

I thought so too, but I downloaded it after this dooglus post https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=623147.msg36115160#msg36115160
and reaped it after week again, but no change, also file same size as mentioned dooglus.
With such sync speed I need yet months to be done Smiley

So, it's taking you a week in syncing from the bootstrap file which was only 2 weeks ago?
Yes, you definately have a problem.

BUT... you said you see the file is the same size.  This doesn't mean anything if the file is corrupt.  A corrupt file is a corrupt file no matter how big/small the file is.
Did you check the checksum / the current file is:

Quote
To verify that you have the right file:

Quote
$ sha256sum bootstrap.dat
713b93b7458e88500f1e32557f0bc58b9f05a6b13e1de31576f25f5300184c96  bootstrap.dat

and/or force your torrent client to check it.

Ah, ok!

Also, there is a good chance that the new CLAM wallet will come out this week (70% ish) and the new wallet won't require the bootstrap to sync.

No....
"Download it, put it into the same folder as your CLAM wallet.dat, then restart the client."

That image is of your executable folder.  Your wallet.dat file is in:      
C:\Users\(youruserdirectory)\AppData\Roaming\Clam
or
%appdata%/clam

(For the above, I am assuming you are using defaults since you don't know where your wallet.dat file is.)

Oh God It is now working I guess since I am able to see like  ( "IMPORTING BLOCKS")  . I am so thankful to you and people who helped me with this . My first time to do staking thanks for explaining it .

Nice!    All good.   Hopefully your download is good and everything works out.  Smiley


Yeah and it seems faster than previous client that I have but for me It is not that fast it takes time for importing files ? Can you tell me estimation days ?

I thought so too, but I downloaded it after this dooglus post https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=623147.msg36115160#msg36115160
and reaped it after week again, but no change, also file same size as mentioned dooglus.
With such sync speed I need yet months to be done Smiley

I don't understand what happened, but I would suggest stopping your client, renaming bootstrap.dat.old back to bootstrap.dat and starting the client again. It will re-read the bootstrap.dat file skipping the blocks it already has and importing the ones it doesn't have. That might work for you, but I'm not sure. I don't know why it didn't import all the blocks the first time through.

Could you show the size of your bootstrap.dat file and the size of any blk* files you have too?

For example, I have:

Quote
-rw------- 1 user user 2097152626 Oct 31  2017 blk0001.dat
-rw------- 1 user user  496629018 May 15 02:45 blk0002.dat
-rw-rw-r-- 1 user user 2565076446 May 12 03:46 bootstrap.dat

The sum of the sizes of the blk* files should be about the same as the size of the bootstrap.dat it imported from.
