I have a TCL Idol X (S950) phone and I found out that I can root in using 'V-Root' (a Chinese software) however the software is for Windows.
The problem is that I don't have Windows, more explanation at the end.
More in detail:
V-Root is this soft: http://www.mgyun.com
If I well understood (Rooting/unlocking Android Nexus One with broken power button using Linux terminal tools) the rooting usually just install
su command using some vulnerability in the Linux Kernel or in a daemon ... or any other similar vulnerability in the Android OS.
You may wonder why I'm not just grab a Windows pc from one of my friend and in my opinion there are a couple of reason for this:
Android (or better Android/Linux ) is using Linux kernel so in make sense to have some standard procedure to root on Linux too
Many of the Win. Root solution are shipped with some custom soft that we can not really trust ( for example V-Root, beside the fact that is in Chinese and few people non-chinese can understand it, how can I trust that it is not doing any malicious operation on my phone ? )
Most of the tutorial/forum thread are Windows oriented, so there are few and spare info related to Linux
So my question:
Is there a possibility to achieve the above on Linux? If not, is there any other method I can use on Linux?
