Let me say I really appreciate this project, well done.

However, I have to point out its name is almost meaningless. The point here is not about using linux rather then windows. What is actually suggested here (and I really endorse such kind of approaches) is to use a pre-built OS to complete some purpose-specific tasks, because configuring the complete environment on a clean OS (windows/linux) would be a very complex, time-consuming and unworthy one-time effort, and even more importante, it would be really really hard for you to explain how to do all required setups from scratch to many people, especially if you, as a contributor, are used to perform the same tasks everyday in a Linux environment. For example, I guess you would be able to build (in pure theory, of course) a bootable wim with most of such tools and drivers embedded the same way., and that would work as well without issues.

Help me understand this
I'm very new when it comes to this realm of Android tinkering so if someone could please explain this to me like I'm 5 it would be very much appreciated.

I have flashed the persistent FWUL image onto an SD card. I have the stock ROM that I need to flash to my phone. Am I supposed to boot from the FWUL on Windows or on Linux? I tried it on a Puppy Linux machine but when I get to the boot screen and try to select ANY of the options (persistent, forgetful, any of the failsafe options) I either get an error saying that some directory doesn't exist, or it just loops back to the "automatic boot" countdown screen. So I can't even get into FWUL.

What am I doing wrong?

Your PC has to be 64bit ((!) - the installed OS does not matter
You flash FWUL or better mAid nightly with etcher (!) on an usb stick
You set your bios to boot from the USB stick
Enjoy

Ok, thanks for that. Unfortunately I only have 32bit Linux. I have both 64 bit and 32bit Windows. What are my options?

Boot the USB in a machine with a 64bit CPU. Doesn't matter what OS is on the machine (you don't use it).

Got FWUL persistent booted on 64bit machine. I have the phone connected in download mode as per the sample picture. However run I run SALT it gives "No device connected" error., so I'm unable to use any of the tools.

If I go into the Advanced menu and click the "Unlock G4 USU" option the error says "Your download mode version is not supported, downgrade to LP or MM!" which is confusing because the phone IS on native Lollipop?

Apologies for being so clueless but many thanks for your help and I can see that this is a very useful project once I learn how to use it
