Ubuntu - Error while flashing latest Samsung phones with Heimdall
By Nicolas Bernaerts
Last week I wanted to flash latest LineageOS 15.1 on a Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 (A500-FU).
So I installed Heimdall from official Ubuntu Xenial repository to do the job. But I encountered errors while trying to flash the recovery. After some googling, I realised that Heimdall in Ubuntu repository is too old and doesn’t handle PIT extraction on latest Samsung smartphones.
