What is the safest method to root a Samsung Galaxy S 2 i9100 G under a GNU/Linux system? (ArchLinux).

I am a programmer (without android programming experience, only desktop and web), it does not need to be "one click away", but the method has to be safe and you've tried it and it works.

I have adb installed and it works, if rooting the phone involves using it too.

Android version: 2.3.6
Baseband version: i9100gxxkl4
Build number: gingerbread.xxlb1
  • Rooting can be never completely safe.

  • Ok, not completely safe, but at least you've tried it, for this model number, this version, this build number. So I need a solution under these conditions from someone who has done it with success.
