After block 450k versions older than v184.108.40.206 will stop syncing. There is no need to update mobile wallet. QT desktop wallet also need to be updated.
Update to new version need to be done BEFORE block 450k, then in between blocks 450k and 470k register masternode in new system.
After block 470k only masternodes registered in new system will earn.
Between block 450k and 470k masternodes registered in old (current) system will earn, but only those updated to 220.127.116.11
First run after update from 1.6.x will be longer, because of blockchain database reindex.

Steps to be done on masternode before block 450k
2.delete old versions
3.download and unpack new binary
4.start new binary
No changes in config files needed. Assuming, that tecracoind and tecracoin-cli binaries are in system path and you are in your home directory (/root if root, /home/username if username) update script can look like that:
#stop current node
#delete old downloads
rm -f tnode.tar.*
#delete old binaries directories
rm -rf tecracoin-1.*
#download 22.214.171.124 tnode binary (only tecracoind and tecracoin-cli)
#upnack binaries to bin directory, in most cases added to path after login
tar xzf tnode.tar.gz
#start new daemon
First run will take some time because of reindex.
Verify that new version is running”:
And that tnode is active:
tecracoin-cli tnode status
"vin": "CtxIn(COutPoint(ff...ff, 1), scriptSig=)",
"status": "Tnode successfully started"
