Why? Please explain the background a little bit. I guess this would affect the way mfc models are working.

Please change udev rules to have a 'priority' higher than SANE's rules.
SANE has 49 (see I have brscan4's rules applying correctly on priority 40.

This should work:

./mk-udev-rules opt/brother/scanner/brscan4/{Brsane4.ini,models4/*.ini} > etc/udev/rules.d/40-$pkgname.rules

Thanks for maintaining the brscan4 package. I'm an owner of a Brother MFC L2700DW and I depend on a lot of scanning for lots of purposes (OCR, PCBs, etc)

I just found there's a newer version of brscan4 and your package uses an older one. Would you please update it?

If you are busy, I might try to do it. I already did my first package based on an orphaned one and using other PKGBUILD as base (linux-drm-tip-git, I need it to solve certain Intel gfx bugs) with assistance from people on #archlinux-aur at freenode (eschwartz was the patient guru, thanks a lot to him).

Kind regards.

Worked perfectly for Brother MFC-J480DW, and I was able to configure to scan through WiFi, too.

I used simple scan.

attached to network or USB direct line? Have a look at brsaneconfig. I guess you have to run this before.

It works with DCPL2540DW but selection in xsane and the output are way off! Any suggestions?

Works perfectly with Brother MFC-J430W.

DUH! Forgotten to change the checksums. Now it should work. Did not change the version for this.
