Yea, I just installed the ubuntu-device-flash-bin package and I do not have this issue anymore..

@jayywolff What does the command "ubuntu-device-flash query" output? If it is not "the required flag `--device' was not specified", can you send me your binary (/usr/bin/ubuntu-device-flash) somehow? EDIT: I recompiled right now and have the same issue. EDIT 2: also the -bzr version is broken, probably due to a broken dependency. In the build process, you get the error messages that some libraries on could not be found ("status code 404") :/ EDIT 3: Please try ubuntu-device-flash-bin.

Every time I run the command ubuntu-device-flash with any parameters I get the stderr message "Unknown command `ubuntu-device-flash'. Please specify one command of: core, personal, query or touch". Ex. when I run "ubuntu-device-flash --help" I get the error message.

@jayywolff type "ubuntu-device-flash --help" to see the available options.

No matter what command I throw at it I always get: "Unknown command `ubuntu-device-flash'. Please specify one command of: core, personal, query or touch"

Thanks. Updated it.

Sorry, I was on vacation. Sure, I'll orphan it.

@Tempel . btw I have actually no idea that it really works completely as I don't have any device to use it with (yet). I know just know "ubuntu-device-flash query" works.

z3ntu, can you post a link to your PKGBUILD? That way, others could test it out while waiting for olivervbk to respond.

z3ntu commented on 2016-04-07 09:01 (UTC)

I have a working PKGBUILD for ubuntu-device-flash. Can you add me as co-maintainer or orphan the package?

Confirmed working on Nexus 4 (mako) using the official install documentation as of the time of this comment. Must run as root because of a privilege problem in adb/fastboot.

Tried updating to version 0.30 but it seems the project is broken since the function call is not valid anymore (wrong number of arguments, it seems..) Maybe this was the culprit: [...] import "": parsing http: read on closed response body (download) (download) (download) go build: building executable... # _/home/oliver/temp/aur/ubuntu-device-flash/src/goget-ubuntu-touch-0.30/ubuntu-device-flash ./snappy.go:520: not enough arguments in call to diskimage.NewCoreGrubImage If anyone know how to fix, tell me and I'll update it.

@KlipperKyle Thanks Updated: 1. replaced dependecy for android-sdk-platform-tools with android-tools 2. fixed source link to "${pkgver}.orig.tar.gz" Same case as #phablet-tools, seems the ubuntu maintainers created a new release.. Maybe I'll update it later...

KlipperKyle commented on 2014-11-13 06:11 (UTC)

I changed the android-sdk-platform-tools dependency to android-tools (which is an official package). Also, the source link blew up. Right now, a working link for the same file is source=("${pkgver}.orig.tar.gz") A bundled man page would be nice, but it is not absolutely necessary because it is online:

TODO: 1. create aur packages for go dependencies: (the launchpad ones seem to be present in the source package?) 2. create packages for all binaries in the source package...
