    Awesome write up! I've been running Ubuntu 10.04 for a while now and have SBF'd my phone multiple times using this method. Very simple and pain free! Never had a problem.

    Yes, that's correct. Take a look at an earlier post if it doesn't work. You may need to change directories to 'Downloads'.

    That's funny, I did the same thing. Linux takes bit to get used to. Once I figured it out I use it all the time now. A lot easier than SBF.

    When I flash a new ROM w/Linux (maybe cm7), do you know what commands I use?

    While running the command it gets to the sending erase stage then fails every time. Any idea what is going on?

    I can't get this method to get past the second "waiting for phone" prompt. It just sits there and freezes. Here is a screenshot of where it is freezing. Any ideas? View attachment 40007
