To update Agama Wallet and not lose the zcash params or the downloaded blockchain, you first uninstall Agama.  This process is done through the “Installer App” as if you were installing anyway.  The installer will first run and detect an old version of Agama leaving zcash params and blockchain intact.  It will uninstall then exit.  You will then re-run the installer and it will install the fresh download.

The whole process takes less than 3 minutes.  Below is a gallery of the screenshots in order of the steps:

  1. Unrecognised developer, app terminates until cleared to launch
  2. “Open anyway” in OSX security settings.  We trust SuperNET
  3. Admin password required
  4. Select installation language
  5. Wizard begins
  6. Accept license agreement
  7. Installation directory
  8. Previous installation detected, choose uninstall (but keep zcash params and user data, the blockchain and wallet)
  9. Ready to uninstall
  10. Admin password required
  11. Preparing to uninstall
  12. Confirm uninstall

    2. ….Repeat steps 1 through 5 or 6 of the wizard
  15. Installing

  17. Run Agama in full mode
  18. Syncing the blockchain, if you’ve just closed your old install this will take a minute or two as it rescans the blockchain

    1. From the Komodo slack channel Joe, the zcash params were deleted, which in cases where you won’t be using a zcash related coin is ok to free up 900MB, but Komodo shares zcash tech – it needs the them. Re-downloading would take a while depending on the internet connection unfortunately.

      I am due to update again so the process will be re-tested!
