You can restore your MultibitHD, BRD Wallet or Bitcoin Wallet for Android (Schildbach Wallet) in Electrum.
- You will need your seed words which are also known as wallet words or seed mnemonic. If you don’t have them written down use your wallet software to find them. Consult your wallet’s documentation if you don’t know how. If you’re using the Schildbach wallet use this tool to get your seed words.
- Follow the guide here to restore your wallet from seed keeping in mind two things:
- In step four after you enter the seed you have to click on options and check bip39. Make sure it says “bip39 checksum ok” next to the options button.
- In step five choose “legacy (p2pkh)” and set the derivation path as m/0′ for the derivation path. That’s a zero and a single quote.
If this is not working for you then make sure that, once you’ve entered the seed and checked bip39 in options, there is no message about failed checksums next to the options button. A failed checksum means that you’ve entered the wrong seed so double check what you’ve typed in. Also make sure you enter the correct derivation path m/0′ in the step after that. Electrum won’t stop you from creating a bip39 wallet with an incorrect seed or derivation path so you need to be mindful of this yourself.
A note for BRD wallet users
BRD wallet creates native segwit and p2sh segwit addresses as well but electrum only supports one address type per wallet file. So to make all your funds show up you have to repeat the restoration process in a new wallet file and this time choose native segwit instead of legacy in step 2b above. Then repeat the process again but select p2sh segwit. So you will have 3 wallet files when you are done. You can begin the process again via file > new/restore and switch between wallet files via file > open.
