I've just picked up a 9020T Nexus S with stock jellybean. Is this still the best method for rooting the phone using Ubuntu, or is there an easier method?

I noticed that some of the links in the first post no longer work. Thanks!

Yes it still stands and works.

Just get the SDK from Google.
http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

Fastboot is included in the SDK. No need to worry about that link to it in the op

Edit. Also download your custom recovery and root zip of choice in place of what is in the op.

Basically sub in the new files but the process itself is the same

Default waiting for device

follow the steps from 1 to 10
also got the sdk from google and fastboot was included
but when i start on the next section and run command "fastboot oem unlock" the terminal just tells me <waiting for device> and nothing appears on my phone.
earlier in this thread it says to update the drivers, how can i do that?

thanks for any help

Try typing sudo before all fastboot commands.

I used this guide and found it to be MUCH easier: http://nexusshacks.com/nexus-s-root/...r-gingerbread/

done, thanks
for a second i thought i had the same problem even with the other howto but searching in the comments i discovered that my problem was i didn't use sudo
the command is "sudo ./fastboot-lux oem unlock"

thanks again time to mess up my phone properly now
