Set up and use MyEtherWallet

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.

Before you start

Install the Ethereum app

Install the Ethereum app on your Ledger device to manage ETH and ERC20 tokens with MyEtherWallet. The Ethereum app is developed and supported by Ledger. 

  1. Open the Manager in Ledger Live.
  2. Connect and unlock your Ledger device.
  3. If asked, allow the manager on 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.

Enable Contract data

If you want to send ERC-20 tokens, you need to activate contract data on your device. Otherwise, invalid status 6a80 is returned.

To enable contract data: 

  1. Connect and unlock your Ledger device.
  2. Open the Ethereum application.
  3. Press the right button to navigate to Settings. Then press both buttons to validate.
  4. In the Contract data settings, press both buttons to allow contract data in transactions. 
    The device displays Allowed

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 the Manager.

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.
