I was told that the new version would fix the syncing issue, but I just downloaded Version 0.8.3 and I'm still stuck on the exact same block.

My operating system is OSX.

  • Check your geth version - if you have the dev 1.5 version installed, this may not have been updated for the memory bug fix. See ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/8731/… – The Officious BokkyPooBah Sep 20 '16 at 22:57
  • @BokkyPooBah I don't have a technical background and have no idea what any of that means. I downloaded the latest wallet client that was released yesterday, so whatever version of Geth is in that is the one I have. – Followme22 Sep 21 '16 at 0:02
  • Try opening the menu Ethereum Wallet -> Check for updates... Confirm you are running the correct version as shown in the link. – The Officious BokkyPooBah Sep 21 '16 at 0:09

you have to delete you old blockchain and resync from scratch using Mist 0.8.3. To do this go to home/library/ethereum/chaindata - delete the chaindata folder. make sure you have your keystore files backed up. A new sync is fast with this version of geth if it starts with an empty db
