Using Termux

Please note: Using your mobile to mine TurtleCoin is not effective and should only be done for the lulz.

It may also cause the phone to overheat and result in premature silicon degradation, shortening the lifespan of your phone.

  1. Download Termux from the Play Store or from F-droid.
  2. Upon downloading and installing, open the app.
  3. Run apt update
  4. Run apt install wget cmake libuv-dev clang nano
  5. Run wget "https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig/archive/v2.14.1.tar.gz" or wget "https://is.gd/QOZi6d"
  6. Run tar xzvf v2.14.1.tar.gz
  7. Run cd xmrig-2.14.1
  8. Run mkdir build && cd build
  9. Run cmake .. -DWITH_HTTPD=OFF -DWITH_TLS=OFF
  10. Run make
  11. Run cp ../src/config.json config.json
  12. Run nano config.json and adjust your config settings to match you wallet and pool etc.
  13. Find and change the following lines:
  • "algo: "cryptonight-lite" to "cryptonight-pico/trtl"
  • "url: "[pool address]"
  • `"user: "[wallet address]"
  • be sure to keep the quotes "" around your pool address and wallet address
  1. Run ./xmrig-notls

Instead of copy pasting each command individually you can copy paste what is below into termux after you open it. It'll open the config file where you can make the edits as advised in step 13 above and once you close nano

  1. ctrl+x to exit then
  2. y to confirm want to save then
  3. enter to use the same file

xmrig will start.
