Ledger Wallet not syncing with Polkadot account (workaround)

Ledger Wallets are one of the most popular hardware wallets for securely storing cryptocurrency private keys offline. They provide customized solutions for businesses and high-value individuals.

Developed by Ethereum co-founder Gavin Wood, Polkadot is a platform that allows blockchains to exchange messages and execute transactions without a third party.

Ledger Wallet not syncing with Polkadot account

That said, currently, some users complain that their Ledger Wallet is not syncing with their Polkadot accounts (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9).


When users attempt to add the Polkadot account to Ledger Wallet, they receive an ‘internal process error 134’ prompt or are stuck on the synchronization screen with infinite loading.

Some claim to have previously added it, but it stopped showing them their rewards, so they removed it to see whether it fixed the problem. However, they are now unable to get past the synchronization procedure.

This appears to be a server-side issue that affects users on both the desktop and mobile apps.

@Ledger_Support Hey Ledger, can you tell us what’s wrong with the Polkadot app, why it’s not synchronizing, and when you expect a solution? It’s been ages

Uninstalling and reinstalling the ledger app, updating the operating system on the device, and clearing the cache do not appear to work either.

Issue acknowledged

Fortunately, Ledger support has acknowledged the issue and stated that they are working on a fix. However, no timeframe was provided.
