Heimdall setup issue

upon installing Heimdall, following their steps that are referred to in the Samsung Galaxy A3 2016 install guide, https://doc.e.foundation/how-tos/install-heimdall , i get the following error message:

CMake Error: The source directory “A:/msys2/home/Rik” does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt. Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.

i get this error after entering the command: $ cmake -G “MSYS Makefiles” -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DQt5Widgets_DIR=/c/msys64/mingw64/qt5-static/lib/cmake/Qt5Widgets …

Can anyone help with this…? I’d love to install /e/ on my Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016)!

@Rik, under which platform do you work with Heimdall: Linux, Mac OSX, Windows?

I would prefer using thus guide to install TWRP (root is not needed) and after you have twrp running you can flash e.zip with it

On linux ubuntu, you can see this link to install last version of heimdall It worked for me…
You can have a try…

By the way, don’t use the latest zip from nighlys. I just have had a long chat with a german A3 users. On his phone the last e-version is drying the batteries and icons are wrong and some more issues

great thanks, I will do this

thanks for the heads up!

should anyone else come accross this issue, i ended up using Odin to install TWRP, and then from TWRP i installed /e/, this did work fine for me.
