You will find some of our most commonly asked questions and issues below.

Before continuing, please ensure you are on a Mainnet version of Minima (v 1.0.x) by checking the status of your node.

If you are still running v 0.103.x or below, you are still on Testnet and need to update to the latest version.

Android: App crashing on open

If your app is crashing, there are several steps you can try:

  1. Ensure you have uninstalled Testnet v100.32 before downloading Minima from the Google Play Store.
  2. Ensure you are on the latest version
  3. Restart the phone
  4. If the above steps do not help, you will need to uninstall the app and reinstall the latest version. You will then need to restore a backup you have taken previously or do a seed resync from an Archive node.
    A video tutorial of a seed re-sync can be found here.

Node is not remaining in sync with the top block

If your node is not remaining in sync with the top block, there are several steps you can try:

  1. Check your internet connection
  2. On Android, check your battery settings as per the guidance here.
  3. Restart the node and allow 10 minutes after restarting for the node to sync

Android: Select ShutDown from the menu on the Health Page
Docker/desktop/server: Type quit compact:true into the Terminal and wait for the shutdown to complete. Once complete, restart the node.

  1. If still not syncing, attempt a chain resync from an Archive node
