I have installed Jaxx on my smartphone and have some ETH in it, I've sen a small amount to the DAO address. If I at a later stage want to intereact with the DAO and Jaxx doesn't allow for this, is it possible to import my Jaxx wallet into Mist?

Jaxx is a deterministic wallet right? A bit like MultiBit HD is for Bitcoin? So does Mist allow for importing a wallet with a mnemonic key? Or is that feature planned? Or can I assume another wallet will come along in the future that has full capabilities and will be able to i;port my Jaxx wallet?

    I don't know the answer, but one alternative would be to create a new account in Mist and send your Jaxx funds to your new account address from your phone. Rather simplistic, and possibly not a viable solution for you, but worth a mention. May 26, 2016 at 19:27
  • I ended making an online wallet with MyEtherWallet and sending my ETH to there and getting DAO tokens that way.

My main concern was not being able to access the DAO tokens I purchased with ETH from my Jaxx wallet. I opened Jaxx today and there is a new, DAO tab which has my tokens! Do no need to import into Mist to access my DAO. Great job Jaxx! DAO tab in Jaxx
