The Heimdall project does not provide up to date packages. This means that in some cases, it will just not work. Consequently, we provide [patched sources](https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/tools/heimdall](https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/tools/heimdall) and corresponding binaries.

If you prefer to build the Heimdall suite by yourself, you can follow our documentation available here
