Upgrading The ROKOS OKcash Wallet

So that time finally arrived. It was time to update my OKcash wallet for my ROKOS Raspberry Pi. For those that don’t know, ROKOS is a Linux based operating system and if you’re not used to working with Linux it can be a bit daunting. I’m happy to report that my OKcash wallet upgrade Ver 3 to Ver 4.0.0. was smooth and painless. If I can do it, anyone can!

The Dood’s a bit paranoid when it comes to updates and upgrades, so for safety reasons I transferred all my coins to a different wallet.  Once I knew all my coins were safe I closed my Ver 3 wallet and did a quick update of ROKOS flavors. From the command line just type :

sudo apt-get update

Once I made sure everything was updated, I then did a quick upgrade. Again, from the command line just type:

sudo apt-get upgrade

When everything was updated and upgraded I did a quick reboot just to make sure everything was working OK and the updates and upgrades were working alright.

Now I downloaded the wallet upgrade zip file on my laptop and put the zip file on a USB drive. You don’t have to do that and you can download right to your PI if you want. I downloaded the files from here.

You want to download this file Okcash_4.0.0.0_raspberrypi.zip

Once you download the file, go to your downloads folder and extract the zip file. All you do is double click the zip file and ROKOS will open Xarchiver to extract the files. It doesn’t really matter where you extract the files. By default they’ll extract to whatever folder you’re currently in. I extracted the files to

/home/pi/OK-update

Xarchiver extracting the OKcash wallet files.

Double click on the file and Xarchiver will open and extract the files for you.

Once your files are extracted you want to open a terminal window and cd to the folder with the extracted files.  /OK-update is the folder I extracted to, you want to cd to wherever you extracted your files ex: cd /YourFolderNameHere

cd /OK-update

I then followed the instructions found here.  Here’s the commands I used.

sudo chmod 755 okcash

sudo chmod 755 okcashd

sudo cp okcash /usr/local/bin/

sudo cp okcashd /usr/local/bin/

Once I finished, I again rebooted my Pi. Upon reboot I opened the wallet. It took a couple minutes to open this time. Once the wallet opened it only took a couple more minutes for the blockchain to sync and it was ready to receive OKcash.

I sent a test of about 10 OKcash. Once I knew it was working properly I transferred the rest of the balance. Now time to get staking!

Final comments:

For the most part this was quick and painless. I’m really happy with the new wallet so far. I was hoping with the updated version the issue with showing the balances would be fixed, but this is still a small inconvenience. To see your coin balance you still have to go into coin control to see the balance. Outside of that the wallet seems to be working great. Props to Oktoshi and the ROKOS team for another job well done! Can’t wait to get the new Pi3 or PIne64 and try out ROKOS v6 Magic Flavors!
