I recently had to go from ICS back to stock GB due to a bad flash.

I am now on UCKK4 stock and after hours of searching can't seem to find any way to root it on a ubuntu system. My windows machine died so using superoneclick or odin doesnt seem to be an option. I tried a couple heimdall packages with cwm kernels already in them but couldn't get them to flash. (they would hang at factoryfs) I tried all the suggestions in the connection issues guide and didnt find a solution.

If anyone knows how to root this on Ubuntu 12.04 the help would be much appreciated.

I couldn't get heimdall suite to load the zimage. I'll try working with that again when I get home from work though.
Does it have to be 1.3.1 or should I install 1.3.2?

It was this one click http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=19172102
Tried the wipes and reboots. Even tried to flash cm7.
One clicked back to stock. (This one.)
May try again once my stomach feels up to it
