As you probably know, the <https://www.memtest86.com/downloads/memtest86-usb.zip> URL is likely to cause problems, like this error:

==> Validating source files with sha512sums...
    memtest86-efi-8.2.zip ... FAILED

To avoid this problem, I prefer to reupload memtest86-usb.zip archive somewhere else, where this kind of breakage will not appear.

I can't upload this archive on AUR directly (archive is 8 MB but AUR accepts 250 KiB maximum), so I decide to put this archive on my Git repository to avoid future breakages.

I hope it suits you.

@capoeira: run the memtest86-efi command and follow instructions. You need to choose 3: Add a boot entry for GRUB2 menu in your case.

So how can I add this to Grub?

Did it break once again?

@maxbla: Yes, it is due an upstream update. Fixed, thanks.

Package doesn't build. Presumably upstream shipped an update. I made it work in the meantime with makepkg --skipchecksums -si
