Trezor passphrase signing works again

The 1.3.8 release allowed Trezor hardware wallet owners to use Trezor’s latest firmware. However, in the latest Trezor firmware an API changed related to entering passphrases for your Trezor device. Specifically, the API now passed an extra flag into ElectrumSV which indicated if the device supported on device passphrase entry.

Trezor passphrase on device now supported

Normally when you enter your passphrase for your Trezor device you do it in ElectrumSV, which is of questionable security. But Trezor support an option to enter your passphrase using an old school mobile style keyboard (do people still use these?) on your Trezor Model T touch screen. I figured that while I was testing the passphrase code, I may as well implement support for this and test it at the same time.

The Trezor Model T needs to know the passphrase.

Keepkey and Trezor passphrase confirming uses the correct dialog again

When you create a hardware wallet account, and your device is configured to use passphrases, ElectrumSV would ask you for one on it’s behalf. But the problem was it would use the above shown “Enter the passphrase to unlock this wallet” dialog, rather than the confirmation dialog shown below. This change restores the use of the shown confirmation dialog, which helpfully shows a warning about forgetting the passphrase.

Other fixes

  • #569: If a user had hidden the coin-splitting tab, text from the coin-splitting tab would leak out and be displayed over the “Add Account” button. This only happened on a fresh wallet load with the tab hidden.
