On the contrary to the standard recovery process, the advanced recovery is slightly different. Instead of writing whole words in a shuffled order, the user will have to input individual letters on the PIN pad. The connected computer will not be able to know which letter is being entered as the layout of the PIN pad continually changes.
By using the advanced recovery, you will have more time compared to the standard recovery method.
- Plug your uninitialized or wiped device into your computer and navigate until you find the recovery button.
2. Select the length of your recovery seed and double-check the advanced recovery checkbox.
3. Input the letters that the seed word contains and you will see the PIN pad on your computer screen just like the one you use to enter your PIN.
4.The device screen will show you a virtual keyboard composed of nine buttons each assigned to one, two or three letters. Choose the letter by clicking the right button on your computer. The letter layout will change with every input.
5. Type the first four letters for each word. Each letter will need to be selected individually.
Note: After the third letter, there is not much to choose from. The word list was made in that manner so that there are no words with the same combination of four letters. To fit all the letter into the 9-key layout, ‘’-‘’ is used to mark the sequence of letters.
Once you have done that, repeat the same process for the next 23 words to finish the advanced recovery process.
