I have a transaction pending from 4 days. I have tried to unlock following this answer: MyEtherWallet is pending and dropping. It looks like it is stuck in a loop for 2 days?

Now the current nonce is 34, but the pending tx has nonce 27.

If I try to resend the tx with Higher GAS, the new tx fails with the error "nonce too low"

How can I unlock/resend tx?

If current nonce is 34 then nonce 27 was already mined (nonce is incremented by 1 from 0 and cannot be repeated).

A transaction with a lower nonce than the last mined transaction will never be accepted and will be dropped immediately from the network.

  • but tx with nonce 27 still pending and dropped

  • Do you have the tx hash? If 27 was not mined yet then 34 cannot be the last mined nonce. Are you perhaps mixing different networks?

  • If you look at etherscan it say it was dropped, the mined tx with nonce 27 is 0x7c5124118f8b80b7d1a512eaa5a4d3a46cf2a05759354028bdbd18a0dd93867d.

    The value transfered in that transaction was never removed from your wallet. If your wallet shows a different value than etherscan you should contact with the wallet support so they can refresh/update the balance.
