Have you looked here? If it has been rooted, they did it, and there are Linux users there.

yeah, that came up in some searches but i didnt really see any instructions on there.

my fone was an early christmas gift so i am new to android...

i have figured out how to install heimdall on fedora live. but not quite certain where to go from here ? (the load package and flash tabs have browse buttons but not sure what files i need to load).

thanks,
