This release contains geth 1.4.10 with the Hard Fork choice!

You will be asked at start which chain you want to be on. After selecting your choice, you will run either the Hard Fork chain, or stay on the old one.

Until block 1 920 000 you can simply switch to the other chain, by selecting the main in Menu “Develop” -> “The DAO fork” -> “support/don’t support DAO fork”.

If you want to switch chains after block 1920000 you need to resync Mist!
You can do this by following these instructions:

  • Click on “Accounts” -> “Backup” -> “Accounts”. This will open the file explorer with the “Ethereum” folder opened.
  • Click on “Accounts” -> “Backup” -> “Application Data”. This will open a system folder, go there into the “Mist” folder.
  • Close Mist.
  • Delete the “chaindata” folder inside the “Ethereum” folder.
  • Change the content of the file called “daoFork” to true or false (“true” means going with the dao fork, “false” means against). Optionally you can also simply delete that file and Mist will ask you again to choose on the next start.
  • After you done that restart Mist and it will ask you to select the chain again and you can sync

Other additions in this release:

  • Fixes the bug, where estimateGas was not working anymore.
  • Fixes an issue in the transaction confirmation window in which it would show “wrong password” error, for unrelated node errors
  • Disables eth node until it releases a version with fork support

NOTE C++ eth has no hard fork ready version build yet, so you need to use geth for now, and wait until we can bundle eth in the next release!
