@desaparecido Sorry, been a while since I last used it. Don't have the time to test it on a real device. Please give me feedback is something is still broken.

hi, I have this error when patch apply, some ideas to deal with successfully ?

@gmelchett Thanks for the heads up. Haven't used this package myself in a while.

Removed the check since it appears to change very often. Might add a sustainable solution later on.

Also updated to use electron6.

The disable-update-check patch still doesn't apply. Remove?

@TimorLee Thanks for letting me know. It was not merged as you suspected. The code inside the patches changed, therefore it failed.

Apparently disable-update-check.patch has been merged so can be removed from the PKGBUILD. Otherwise I get an error when applying the use-system-tools.patch "Hunk #1 failed at 222".

I have successfully installed Ubuntu Touch on my Nexus (4) using this package just now.

So this pretty much confirms that it works properly without root permissions.

Uses community/electron instead of the upstream version 1.8.8. Works well though.

This package does not download the entire electron to package it but uses the system one.

Patches code to run things rootless. adb and fastboot DO NOT require any root permissions on Arch if you're doing everything right.

Installation via auto-detection is broken upstream. Please use the manual way for installing.
