ngrok v3 introduces breaking changes.

Check for the upgrade instructions.

Note to self/future maintainers, this software only provides official downloads for an old release. The package itself then tries to update itself using 'equinox'. To find out the real download url, I use this script get_download_info:


exec http -b \
    'Accept:application/json; q=1; version=1; charset=utf-8' \
    'Content-Type:application/json; charset=utf-8' \
    app_id=app_goVRodbMVm \
    arch=amd64 \
    channel=stable \
    current_sha256=1aaccea9c0668d97f19095636b2f4fca033fb8d9f7fc37241a013f4f1fa48bb3 \
    current_version=2.2.8 \
    goarm= \
    os=linux \
    target_version= \

You need to call it with the different architectures:

get_download_info arch=386
get_download_info arch=amd64
get_download_info arch=arm
get_download_info arch=arm64

Since the server where the package is downloaded does not support resuming it would be best to first clear the partially downloaded files. (using yay)

I see that pkgbuild contains the following sha for amd64: 218d267cd1195334718bafac14bfdf1c19dc95dcf8a24aaa6a1383c21dc86e76

Searching for this in, gives me no results. Any reason for that ?

As per, the newest version is 2.3.38. (Even the script in your pinned comment gives the same thing.)

I just scanned the 64bit binary that this package installed and VirusTotal comes back clean:

trevordf commented on 2020-10-15 15:09 (UTC)

Might be nothing, but virustotal reported one detection on v2.3.35:

If I download the official zip from I don't see the same thing:

Despite the app claiming an update is available, there is no new version available on the download page; or via the update script I jury rigged up.

imlonghao commented on 2020-02-10 04:30 (UTC)

The download url can be found at

@kodopp that appears to be correct. (I only just took over this package to bump to a new release). However, I'm having trouble finding a license: I looked on the ngrok, in the upstream proper releases, and searched around elsewhere. Do you have any idea what license it is under?

kodopp commented on 2019-03-14 18:31 (UTC)

As far as I know ngrok 2.x is not open source, so specifying 'Apache' as its license in the PKGBUILD is not correct. I think you should change it to 'Custom' and include appropriate license in the package. Please correct me if I am wrong
