I previously used Jaxx, where I stored some Ether. I have now uninstalled Jaxx, but would like to access my Ether in any way possible.
I don't have the Jaxx mnemonic as it was never made clear that I needed it, but luckily I do have my private key and public address, both of which Jaxx provides in unencrypted form.
I have tried the 'import paper wallet' tool in a new Jaxx wallet, but it just says 'scanning private key' for an hour and doesn't do anything. I have also tried importing via geth, but for some reason my balance shows up as 0. This might be because geth was linked to a testnet?
Any help with retrieving my ethereum is appreciated.
