Default [Q] Trouble rooting Nexus 10

I've been following zedomax's Linux method to unlock the bootloader and root the Google Nexus 10 but after I type
Quote:
sudo ./fastboot-linux oem unlock
I get
Quote:
sudo: unable to execute ./fastboot-linux: No such file or directory

Have you installed fastboot-tools and adb-tools from you Linux distro's repos? If not, then you need to do that. Forget that other stuff.
After you install your distro's fastboot-tools you put your tablet in recovery mode (vol-up & vol-down & power on). In a terminal on your Linux box, type either su if you have su privileges OR sudo fastboot devices to see that your tablet is indeed in mode to accept fastboot commands. Then type fastboot oem unlock if you are su, else type sudo fastboot oem unlock.

I wish I read what you said earlier. I used wugfresh's nexus 10 toolkit and successfully unlocked my nexus 10 only to get into a boot loop. I managed to get CWM running but when I try to sideload the latest nightly of Cyanogemod I get a * cannot 'read' sideload error *

Hi,

Just in case, in this thread I've posted a guide about unlocking N10 Bootloader, Rooting and Restoring to Stock guides for Linux. I think you might find useful for future reference, even though your problem in this thread was solved...
