For whatever reason, this happened.
My wallet disappeared in BTC Armory but I kept my paper backup/fragments and I can't find my original private keys.
I was able to restore my wallet in the software but the private keys it generated show a zero f-ing balance.

When I check one of my P2SH-P2WPKH (SegWit) addresses generated by my old BTC Armory wallet application years ago,
the wallet address still shows a balance when checking via a blockchain explorer.

I can't figure out how to re-import/restore my wallet with its P2SH-P2WPKH (SegWit) addresses.
So I can have access to my BTC.

Does anyone know how I can recover my BTC Armory SegWit wallet?
I have been googling for hours to no avail and I have to say I am not well learned on the intricacies of this.

Sorry to hear that..
Only one that seem legit I found that actually point to a BTC Armory recovery is this.. https://www.bitcoinarmory.com/tutorials/armory-basics/restore-wallet/
But guess you tried that..
All other How to recovery BTC Armory SegWit I found seem to be a persons personal ideas how to and that sounded to shady for my taste...

CHEERS! 🍻

I've had similar using Coinomi after reinstallation. Balance shows up on blockchain explorer but not in app wallet. I ended up having to make sure the updates were the latest then wait while the wallet app updated itself (blockchain height). Some devices / tokens can take hours once initiated. But if it's still showing on the explorer it's all good. Hopefully it will sort itself out for you.

I imported all the private keys from the restored BTC Armory wallet into Electrum or some online wallet and it showed a transaction history but a zero balance.
From what I understand, I somehow generated a segwit address from my old BTC Armory wallet and used that address to earn BTC from mining in a few pools.
But it seems since the blockchain explorer shows a balance, and that the private keys imported on the online wallet do not, then I think the BTC Armory wallet did not generate all the private keys it should have. From reading, it seems SegWit is a solution to soft mods or forking .. I may have decided to use it for a kind of future-proofing or something. I am not sure and online help is minimal on this specific subject.

Maybe try contacting them after checking their forum?


I ended up doing the same for my issue at Coinomi, sounds similar albeit cold storage and an app.

P.S. So after a lot of headaches, I recovered my segwit address funds.
So what I did was get BTC core up to date on a PC that would run it (No software blocking ports and things like that).
Once up to date I ran BTC Armory and once it connected to BTC core and validated, waaaalllaaa!
I had all my funds placed in segwit addresses inside that wallet!
