    My laptops have ran Linux for as long as I can remember. In the past I have always borrowed my friends computers to SBF and do various other phone 'hacking' things. I would love to be able to rely solely on my Arch Linux machine, but i dont know of a way to SBF using a Linux Computer.

    Is it possible to SBF with a computer running Linux?

    yeah I was in the same boat, i kept win 7 on a laptop for phone tinkering :p sbf'ing in terminal is a breeze though, and for what its worth i have found it to be more reliable than RSD lite tooo ROFL

    +1 sbfing is so much easier on Linux. As are most things if you know what your doing
