@timschumi Sorry for the noise,it was indeed a PEBKAC issue after all.

No issues here, I am able to successfully clone and build the repository in a clean environment. Also, it's quite weird that it falls back to SSH, there is nothing in here that would make it do that.

Upon git clone i get Permission denied (publickey). fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

i can git clone many other packages which makes me think this is not a PEBKAC issue.

No issues with flashing here using the current heimdall-git package and the standard libusbx, so I'm going to unflag the package.

However, the PKGBUILD upstream received quite a few updates (including removing the hard dependency on libusb), so I'm going to pull those in.

Heimdall should be flaged out of date.

I had to replace libusb with libusx from the internet archive to get work heimdall.

So to install replicantOS with heimdall is libusbx needed.

My step to get heimdall work with libusbx was:

pacman -Rdd libusb

pacman -U libusbx-package.pkg.tar.gz

Reboot Arch

Plugin Samsung Galaxy S3; good USB Cable needed.

Do the adb command if isn't working for download mode

And the flashing starts..

So it's a workaround, do at your own risk!

git URL has changed as stated already. Here the new source entry which is needed: git+

so the temporary workaround is:

git clone "" aurheim

cd aurheim

sed -i 's#git://' PKGBUILD

makepkg && sudo pacman -U heimdall-.*pkg.tar.xz

The patch thing isn't working!

The Heimdall repo has moved to GitLab, so the source needs to be updated.

@ntzrmtthihu777: I wasn't aware such patch was necessary, and for what. I found the issue on github and it seems upstream hasn't fixed it even though it's been known long. I will incorporate the patch into the PKGBUILD when I push this to aur4. Thank you for noticing

@disastro why haven't you incorporated the patch to BridgeManager.cpp ? it's required to use heimdall with a fair amount of samsung devices, including the note2 and avant
