My Ledger HW is broken and I can’t access my funds. I have my Ledger seed but I can’t enter it in Monero wallets. How do I convert the seed?

Note: Entering your seed on your computer can potentially expose it to malware if your computer is comprised.


First step is to download Git for Windows.

  • Go to gitforwindows.org and use the Download button.
  • Install it with default settings.

Next step is to install Python 3.

Afterwards open the git-bash shell the following way.

  • Open the following path: C:\Program Files\Git in Explorer.
  • Start git-bash.exe as administrator, maximize the window.

Then enter the following commands, line by line.

  • pip3 install pycryptodomex ECPy ledgerblue pyreadline
  • git clone https://github.com/LedgerHQ/ledger-app-monero
  • cd ledger-app-monero/tools/python/
  • export PYTHONIOENCODING=utf-8
  • PYTHONPATH=`pwd`/src python -m ledger.monero.seedconv.py offline

Now the program should have started successfully. To confirm the seed language, enter 2 for English. Then enter yes and it will ask you for your 24 word Ledger seed. Your Monero compatible seed should finally show up now.
