Before making a large amount of recharge, please be sure to test with a small amount for the first time. Make sure the recharge and withdrawal can be completed before the large amount of recharge can be used.

The recovery phrase is the only way for you to recover your wallet. Please keep it properly. Don't record it on any electronic device, and don't spread or record it on any network channel to ensure the safety of your assets.

Activate Mini

First use the data cable to connect the OneKey Mini to the computer, and follow the prompts to set the system language. (Mini does not have the battery and bluetooth, so it requires external power to power on and does not support connection to the mobile phone.)

Press the down key to enter the Dashboard, select Create New Wallet, follow the on-screen instructions, and select the number of recovery phrase word. Here we take 12 digits as an example.

Follow the prompts and copy down the recovery phrase. The seed phrases are the only way for you to recover your wallet. Please keep them properly and do not record them on any electronic device, nor disseminate or record it on any network channel to ensure asset safety. After the copy is completed, follow the prompts to complete the mnemonic check.

Next, you need to set a PIN code yourself, which is similar to the withdrawal code of a bank card. Numbers 1-9, no 0. Note that if you only set 6 digits, you can select √ in the 7th digit.
Important: When you enter the PIN code, you must remember the PIN code. You need to enter the PIN code to unlock the hardware wallet. Entering the PIN code incorrectly 10 times will cause the hardware wallet to reset.
After that, it shows that the wallet is created successfully, and it can be used by connecting the OneKey desktop or OneKey browser extension.

Check the recovery phrase

After activation, we need to check the recovery phrase to ensure that your recovery phrase is transcribed correctly and can be used to recovery your address. The steps are mainly as follows:

  1. Check the address. Connect the activated Mini to the Desktop, view and record the first address generated by default.
  2. Reset the device and import the recovery phrase. Reset the Mini to erase the data and Mini will return to its inactive state, then you will be able to restore your wallet by importing the recovery phrase you just scribbled down.
  3. Check and verify the address. After successful recovery, connect the Mini to the Desktop and check if the first address generated by default is the same as the one in step 1.

To do this, follow these steps:

Open the official OneKey website https://onekey.so/download , select the corresponding version of the computer operating system to download, and follow the instructions to install. (Here is an example of Win 10)

If Desktop stays in the following state, please check the connection of your hardware wallet to your computer. You can try unplugging the device or replacing the cable/USB port. Sometimes the cable may show that it is powered, but the transmission voltage is unstable and the device is still not recognized.

You can also open the Bridge status page: http://127.0.0.1:21320/status/  to see if this page is displayed properly, if it does not open, download and install Bridge at https://onekey.so/download?client=bridge.

After connecting to Desktop, the first account address will be displayed by default. Click [Receive] to record the recipient address.

Then, we will check the address to ensure that the recovery phrase is copied correctly, the original address can be restored. Keep the recovery phrase you wrote down when you just activated it. 

Press the down key to enter the Dashboard, select Security —— Reset. Follow the prompts to reset, restart after completion, set the system language and enter the inactive state.

Check if the address at this point is the same as the one recorded before, and if the address is the same, the verification is complete and the recovery phrase matches the address.
