Without a doubt the number 1 most frustrating thing about the Ledger Nano S hardware wallet is the fact that you can only have a handful of the coins apps installed at any one time.

So I called this video how to install all 18 apps on your Ledger and the short answer to that is to install the new firmware that Ledger have just released.
Due to code refactoring, where you rewrite code so that it is more concise and takes up less storage space, we can now install many more apps without changing the amount of storage space on the device.
Some of the Ledger apps are bigger than others so in certain cases you may only get a maximum of 16 or 17 apps on there.
That is still a huge improvement over the 5 apps it would hold before.
I think this is excellent because before it just asked you for a few words from your recovery phrase at random, which still left room for error.
This update also fixes some security issues…
So while there is no mad panic, you need to update the firmware as soon as possible by following these steps…
Now due to so many people attempting to update at the same time, it put Ledgers servers under a lot of load and that meant users who were trying to send and receive transactions found their experience significantly degraded.
Remember that it was only early this year when Ledger celebrated the shipping of 1 million hardware wallets so they are all lurking out there waiting to update themselves at some point.
So if you can wait a few days, do so. The crypto on your hardware wallet is safe in the meantime.
