Yes, that's a mistake. Fixed.

There's no package called libreadline. I think the readline libraries are included in the readline package.

I don't own any Apple mobile devices anymore, disowning.

- sanitized deps
- updated pkgver() to cope with non-annotated tags
- updated pkgver() to place 'r' in front of revision #

Adopted, fixed source and upstream URL, brought PKGBUILD to VCS packaging standards.

The upstream has changed build systems.

Posting back to confirm that libirecovery does work once compiled with the steps below. I used it to get my iphone out of recovery loop.

However, I had no luck getting idevicerestore compiled. :(

I was getting the exact same errors as kludge. Google was no help I found absolutly nothing so I poked around in the code myself.

I got it to compile on Arch linux 64, you must use and modify the Makefile from tokm's old fork. I still used Chronics git but with a few changes to tokms Makefile. I cloned the git into a directory and executed these commands -
gcc -o libirecovery.o -c libirecovery.c -g -I./include -lreadline -fPIC
gcc -o libirecovery.o -g -shared -Wl,-soname, -lusb-1.0
gcc -o irecovery irecovery.c -g -I./include -L. -lirecovery -lreadline

It successfully compiles and you get the executable, then you do -
cp /usr/lib/
cp include/libirecovery.h /usr/local/include/libirecovery.h
cp irecovery /usr/local/bin/irecovery

Now I got it compiled. I have not used it yet, now Im battling libirestore. I just wanted to post before I forgot. Hope this helps the next guy!

and when gnu/stubs-32.h is provided manually (cf:, compilation fails with:

gcc -c libirecovery.c -o libirecovery.o -m32 -fPIC -O3 -I./include -I/usr/include -I/usr/local/include
gcc -o libirecovery.o -L/usr/lib -L/usr/local/lib -shared -W1,-soname, -m32 -lusb-1.0
gcc: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-W1,-soname,’
