• Node type: geth/eth
  • OS: windows 64 bit
  • Network type: main
  • Mist version: 0.4.0 (trying to update to 0.5.2)

The problem is my mist wallet wont sync, i have taked a screenshot of Geth running and mist, do you have any idea why geth says "failed" i think that might is the problem?

enter image description here


As you already figured out, you have to upgrade to mist 0.5.2 first.

The homestead fork was active at block 1,150,000 and only post-homestead releases like geth 1.3.5, eth 1.2.2, mist 0.5.2 will sync past that block.

So rather update now and sync later.

  • still thanks for the reply :-) I updated geth and it worked ! .-) – slebo93 Mar 29 '16 at 18:06
