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!

==> Starting prepare()... can't find file to patch at input line 3

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

When building the package, I got this error:
==> Starting pkgver()...
fatal: No annotated tags can describe 'd0526a3b74a003dfc6f805682693be9173ffcd88'.
However, there were unannotated tags: try --tags.

Adding --tags to the git describe command fixed this.

Sorry for the delay! Had some problems with my Arch lately and not enough free time.

libusb was fixed upstream, updated PKGBUILD for qt5 and cmake.
There isn't a good way to build just the CLI right now, I need to do some more investigation but the way their cmake works now is kind of... bad in some ways

This does not currently build. Here is the error:

/tmp/yaourt-tmp-mgre/aur-heimdall-git/./PKGBUILD: line 38: ./configure: No such file or directory

Please fix or orphan so someone else can fix this.

Fixed build; may not yet be working, not ready to actually test it on my new device (porting cyanogenmod to galaxy avant).

heimdall now uses cmake for building; unfortunately, I can't get the new build system to detect libusb.
