How to Update (generic)

As always, it is recommended to backup the existing wallet.dat file to a safe location if you haven’t done so already via File -> Backup wallet and saving it in a different directory with a new name or if you use CLI/Linux, you can backup using the command ./pivx-cli backupwallet.

  1. Gracefully exit/stop the current wallet from the wallet. (File - Exit or ./pivx-cli stop)

  2. Download and install the new wallet appropriate for your OS.

Linux/Rpi: Overwrite the existing executable files with the newly downloaded wallet binaries.
Windows: If you install via the setup executable file, you don’t need to do anything manually.
Mac OSX: Download .dmg file, open .dmg then drag PIVX icon to the applications folder icon.

  1. Re-start the wallet. (./pivxd for linux)
    Update done!
