  Custom Derivation Path in MyEtherWallet

MyEtherWallet has removed the ability to define a custom derivation path. Another option is to use MyCrypto instead. Learn more about MyCrypto here.

This guide will help you set up and use MyEtherWallet to see unsupported or missing ERC20 tokens from Ledger Live with the security of your Ledger device.

  1. Open My Ledger in Ledger Live.
  2. Connect and unlock your Ledger device.
  3. If asked, allow My Ledger to access your device.
  4. Find Ethereum in the app catalog.
  5. Click the Install button of the app.
    • An installation window appears.
    • Your device will display Processing... 
    • The app installation is confirmed.

  2. Open the Ethereum (ETH) application.
  3. Press the right button to navigate to Settings. Then press both buttons to validate.

Troubleshooting: U2F timeout in Chrome

Due to changes in Chrome, U2F timeout issues on web apps like MyEtherWallet may occur. Please ensure your Ledger device runs the latest firmware and reinstall the app in My Ledger.

If you're still facing U2F timeout issues, try the following solutions:

  • Deactivate the Bluetooth connection on your Ledger Nano X:  simply hold both buttons to access Control Center where Bluetooth can be directly disabled. 
  • Update USB drivers on Windows

Next steps

  • Check the MyEtherWallet user guide for setup instructions.
  • Reach out to MyEtherWallet via email for support. 

  Derivation paths

Please note the derivation path used by Ledger Live:

  • Ledger Live creates new ETH accounts in the path: m/44'/60'/0'/0.
