To supplement the recently released v3.2.0 mandatory update, PIVX core wallet v3.2.1 minor update has been released with some additional fixes and enhancements. Some highlight changes are:

  • Addresses Qt wallet crash during zPIV recalculation
  • Addresses macOS installer image mounting difficulty
  • Performance improvements to syncing & staking

Haven’t upgraded to 3.2.0 yet?

Please upgrade straight to 3.2.1 asap as 3.2.0 was a mandatory update!

Already upgraded to 3.2.0?

Then 3.2.1 is not mandatory but is highly recommended due to additional fixes and performance enhancements. You do not need to restart the masternode coming from 3.2.0.

If you do not upgrade to 3.2.x from 3.1.1 or below, your wallet will not stay on the right chain once we switch over to version 5 only chain. So PLEASE UPGRADE ASAP to avoid any issues.

Release Notes

Please take the time to fully read the release notes: Github

Download Link

Download the appropriate wallet binary for your OS from the Github or the website
For Self-compilers, please use “git checkout v3.2.1” to compile. (not master)

How to Update

As always, it is recommended to backup the existing wallet.dat file to a safe location before upgrading if you haven’t done so already via File -> Backup wallet and saving it in a different directory with a new name. If you use CLI/Linux, you can backup using the command ./pivx-cli backupwallet. If your wallet is not running currently, you can back up the file “wallet.dat” from e.g. Start -> Run -> %APPDATA%\PIVX on Windows by making a copy elsewhere.

  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: Install via the setup executable file and run through the setup wizard to install. Mac OSX: Download .dmg file, open .dmg then drag PIVX icon to the applications folder icon. (copy over /Applications/PIVX-Qt)
  3. Re-start the wallet. (Launch from your PIVX shortcut icon or ./pivxd for linux)
  4. Once the wallet finishes syncing, follow this guide to ensure you are on the right network chain.
  5. Upgrade completed.

P.S. If you are a masternode user, you must upgrade both the controller wallet & masternode wallet, then restart the masternode.
