how to install Samsung Android USB Driver on manjaro

thank you :heavy_heart_exclamation:

This the one and only correct command for syncing with the repo mirror.

If you know your system is up-to-date but you need a single applicaton you can use

sudo pacman -S <pkgname>

It is possible to flash android phones.

sudo pacman -S android-tools

For Samsung phones you may need heimdall

sudo pacman -S heimdall

Add your user to group adbusers (remember to logout to make the new group stick)

sudo gpasswd -a $USER adbusers

thank you for your information

i want to be on system upgrade always

is it enough to use

sudo pacman -Syu

i use odin before on windows

Is there any danger to my phone if I misuse because I was the first time I used it, and I’m afraid I’m going to make a mistake?


When working with devices there is always the risk of making a mistake.

Check and check - triplecheck if that makes you confident - in the end you are the system administrator - you are reponsible for your system - no one else.

thank you for your help bro

of course will check and I’ll let you know

You’ll also need android-udev besides android-tools.
