It'll, just say: processing it'll, be going down, and now it's going to say, okay, you need to verify this, so you have to look at your actual nano ledger there's, two buttons. I'm using my old one. It's, not it's, the s not the x, so it's got the buttons and well they both got buttons, but uh.
These ones are a little bit uh old-fashioned. I guess so. We're gonna click on right button. There version 1.61, yes, identifier, 104, yes, 204, yes, 304, 404 and then perform the update there's.

The whole reason for that uh, your passphrase, because if anything screws up, i mean remember your cryptocurrency isn't on nano ledger. The only thing it holds is private keys. So there's, nothing physical! There! It's.
Just a way to unlock things and to spend things or spend cryptocurrency digital assets. So again you're gonna see, processing, firmware updating and, of course, you got to reinstall the apps, which sucks.

I don't. Think you should have them all in one ledger. I think. Maybe if you have a million dollars, maybe you could afford to buy two three or five just saying but uh yeah, i mean when you're going through all this, because in the old days everything was stored on a in the bank.
If you get something like this, you're like shoot. I got ta make sure this is all good, but just remember, if you have your passphrase, you're gonna be okay, all right now, apps installs successfully, now into your accounts.
