Has anyone successfully used Heimdall to apply CF AutoRoot?
I do not have a Windows machine, so Odin is not an option for me.
If not, I may be willing to be the first to try it - would that be a horrible idea?

I'd be curious if you could. I hate windows.

I tried, but couldn't get Heimdall to detect my S5.

I was able to get it to detect my phone (I had to put my phone into download mode first), but I ran into two other issues:
- It won't accept the tar.md5 that cf-autoroot provides. It will only accept tar.gz
- It is giving me an issue with libusb - That's probably specific to my laptop, so I'll try to debug this one on my own. (For now, though, I need sleep)
