Hi folks,

today I've stumbled across a tiny issue regarding the linux version of flashtool
The script "FlashTool" is checking for java versions 1.6, 1.7 and whether it's 64bit or not.

The main problem is, that the zip is delivered with version 1.8 in the default directories, so every user using the built in mechanism schould fail with the following message:


Java version must be 1.6 or 1.7

You won't get this error if you have java 1.6 or 1.7 on your system and have your environmental variables correctly to these instead of the built in ones but I think the creator of this tool had something in mind, putting 1.8 in the package. So the main question to me is: Is the script incomplete or is the wrong java version built in?

I'd posted this in the Cross Device Developement Thread for Xperia Devices but I unfortunateley don't have the permissions, so I hope Androxyde will read this post here in the Q&A.


--- New information:
I had a look at the github-repository and I found out that in
the script was completed with version 1.8 check. But the download from the FT-Homepage contains the old one without the check.
