Any chance of a version for 64bit Ubuntu?

EDIT: running the 32bit version on 64bit Linux, heimdall segfaults: heimdall[5591]: segfault at 10 ip 00000000f749f2cf sp 00000000ffb42d6c error 4 in libc-2.13.so[f745a000+174000]

Yes, I have the 32 bit USB and libc installed.

Does anyone knows what's going on here?
I tried to copy paste the kext fix from zedomax's site in terminal, but it gives this error:

MacBook-van-Rutger-Hoorn:~ rutgerhoorn$ sudo kextunload -b com.devguru.driver.SamsungComposite
(kernel) Canít unload kext com.devguru.driver.SamsungComposite; classes have instances:
(kernel) Kext com.devguru.driver.SamsungComposite class SamsungComposite has 1 instance.
Failed to unload com.devguru.driver.SamsungComposite Ė (libkern/kext) kext is in use or retained (cannot unload).

Can anyone tell me the steps to undo this? My phone developed a hardware fault (headphone socket doesn't work) and needs to go back to Samsung.

A nice man in the Vodafone says I have to get it back to stock (reroot and su off?) otherwise the won't fix it.
