Thanks for the updates! But this PKGBUILD needs these additions:

depends=('libftdi')
makedepends=('inetutils' 'git' 'cmake')

Hi @ThirstyShark, thanks for updating the package, works great on AMD now!

I will note that the repo change to a younger repo means that the package version has gone down - so you may need to manually upgrade this package as it will be initially considered a downgrade.

New installations of the package don't have to worry about this.

Hi everyone, thanks for the bump - I was on vacation, just saw the flag which reminded me to update the package. Let me know if there's any issues with the newer FWs now, I only have an 11th gen.

As a user of an AMD-equipped Framework 13 Laptop, I'd love to see this updated to the latest version mentioned by Talinx. The current version does not work.

Hi @ThirstyShark, this package currently uses an old, unmaintained version of ectool. The latest version is here: https://gitlab.howett.net/DHowett/ectool This version also works with AMD Framework laptops with the current kernel (the old version will work again with those once the patch for EC communication is merged in the kernel); also [i]t’s got all the same functionality, but is a couple years more up to date from the upstream ChromeOS project according to the author/maintainer of ectool (with whom I chatted in the Framework Discord to confirm these statements). It would be nice if you could point this AUR package to the new repo.

Thanks a bunch @ThirstyShark!

Good catch @Auerhuhn, updated.

Hi @ThirstyShark, would you mind adding git to makedepends?
