Root Sprint Optimus G on Linux
If there’s one common theme in all the guides and procedures and tools available for rooting Android devices, or even flashing a custom recovery, it is that most of them always assume you are using Windows and only work on that operating system.
However, if you’ve been looking for a way to root your Sprint Optimus G and are using Linux, there’s a great new step-by-step procedure detailed by XDA forum member jat255 for the entire process on Linux, including the required files and download links. It’s quite an easy procedure and shouldn’t take you more than five minutes, at least after you have downloaded the necessary files.
Head to the source page to find the full set of instructions and files, so that you can root that Optimus G of yours that you bought from Sprint and root it on Linux, without needing to get hold of a Windows running PC.
