Andaloons

I have some Maidsafe coins that I purchased during the ICO a few years back. I was pretty new to the space at the time and I used the original Android bitcoin wallet to purchase them. They were sent back to my Android wallet and now I'm having trouble getting them out. I have been attempting to get the private key from this old wallet for quite some time now. I've tried several strings of keys that look like they are correct, but none work when I try to import them into Omniwallet. If ANYONE has some experience with this I would be really appreciate some help! If I can get these coins out onto the market so I can sell some I will have a BTC reward for anyone that can help me successfully.

Thanks in advance!!

    the quick answer is "to google" for your problem :-)

    eg I have "googled" the old post about solving the similar problem, maybe it could help

    Ok, I did some searching around I've made some progress, but I'm in way over my head as I am not very technical. I contacted Omni and they helped a little to get me to this point. So I have my ECKey (pub & priv) but I have to convert that into WIF format. This is where I am stumped. Any idea where I can find some code or a web page to do this?

    I think I found what I was looking for! About to test it out.

    Better move your coins and tokens to another wallet after you get access to your old android one - nobody knows who can read the info from that site

    Yeah, I have been thinking about that. I'm trying to see if I can run the webpage offline and do it myself. No luck so far. I'm looking at the source code and see about modifying it. Thanks for the heads up!

    I cannot figure out how to run the page offline, however I did test it with a slop wallet compliments of James D'Angelo with his video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1uefzJJ6nM and the coins are still there after ten minutes.

    By the way, if you have your private key there is no need for anything else.

    You can import your address to online Omniwallet with its private key

    Yeah that Omniwallet import option does not support the ECKey format that I have. That first link you sent to me talks about the Armstrong wallet having a key in this format and using bitcoinj to convert it but I'm not versed enough to use bitcoinj. I just tried to use that gobittest website and it produces the wrong public address.
