These are my notes for acquiring ALV coins if you have a wallet that was active before March 27 inclusive. See https://allvor.org/get-alv/ They are based on the notes from  Thanks Zock..

@Maros81 I had the same problem and got the same error.  On the fourth time trying it, I changed the Coin Type on the Bip39-standalone.html page from BTC to XRP and it ended up working. Not sure if th

I'm experiencing the same thing, in which I open index.html, and nothing happens when I click the Change button.  Here's the screen that I get with index.html:

Oh, when @tev says to extract, that means to actually extract.  :newblush:

Okay, that worked.  The index opened up properly this time.  I'll try to do the whole thing again later when I have time.  Thanks much!

I’ve been holding XRP since last fall but I’ve kept them on Bitstamp exchange, am I eligible to receive ALV? Sorry, I can’t find a clear answer on this anywhere. 

No, unfortunately you're not eligible to claim for the Bitstamp holdings (as Bitstamp uses a shared wallet).

If you ever had an activated wallet that you held the keys for, you can still claim 5000 ALV per wallet, but not your main holdings on Bitstamp.

This is difficult and dangerous.

 

The best thing is to make a complaint a technical support to solve the problem updating the ledger wallet  riplle.

Do you agree with me?

https://support.ledgerwallet.com/hc/en-us

They may respond that the Ledger Nano is designed purely for crypto-asset transactions, and that other types of transaction (e.g. IOUs) are out of scope. The XRP distributed ledger has various non-asset functionalities that other distributed ledgers (except perhaps Stellar) just don't have.

If the Ledger Nano's manufacturers supported one type of IOU (e.g. ALV) would that require them to support IOUs generically? (I don't know, I don't own a hardware wallet.) Most of the IOUs on the XRP distributed ledger are probably fiat IOUs (USD, EUR, JPY, CNY…)  issued by the likes of Bitstamp & GateHub; and support for those might be seen as mission-creep.

I was able to follow through step 38.  But when I take the next step and go to https://allvor.org/get-alv/ and put in my public address, it says that I do not have a trust line with Allvor.  

Again, I'm trying to obtain Allvor based on the XRP stored in my Ledger Nano S.  Did I miss something?  After I put in the blob text at step 37, I received this message:  tefBAD_AUTH_MASTER: Auth for unclaimed account needs correct master key.

Thanks for any help you may have to offer.

The unclaimed account sounds like you're trying to extend a trustline from an account that doesn't have any XRPs in it. I guess that falls foul of the XRP ledger's anti-spam measures. If I remember correctly, you need a minimum balance of 20 XRPs. The more trustlines you extend, the more XRP's (or perhaps IOUs?) are required in your account.

It also sounds like there's a mismatch between your address (beginning with "r") and your private key. Are you sure you entered the right strings of letters/digits for both? Or have you previously done something complicated, like ***igning multiple keys to your account and disabling one of them?

@tev I was always decent with following directions in school and not being careless. Now it's become personal. :P 

Well, I didn't try anything fancy. And behind the message it shows (in a lighter shade) how many ALV I should be getting, which calculates correctly in relation to the number of XRP in that account. This seems to suggest that I have the right public address key, and I have a well more than 20 XRP. A bad master key? Perhaps carelessness in typing somewhere to get the blob text?

I shall try again soon.

I have this problem too, because my cold computer is just my hot computer booted off a USB stick without network drivers — I can't have both running at the same time. My usual workaround is to make a PDF print-to-file of what the wallet looks like on the hot computer before signing. When I transfer this PDF to the cold computer, it allows me to check for typing errors. The text near the *Sign* button in ripplrm's wallet-software has to look the same on both computers: if it doesn't, you need to check various other fields and fix any that differ between hot and cold computers.

Thanks Zock..

I've posted them as there isn't much information on the internet about how to do this so hopefully will be useful to some.

Note I don't have a "cold computer" which in an ideal world you would have and any of the steps where I say to disconnect from the Internet you would do on a cold computer as per Zocks notes.

Follow these steps at your own risk!!! They are taken from memory.

For the record I have my ALV coins.
