The root process for these phones almost always involve running various commands through ADB, which will work the same on any OS ADB is run on. So if there is a Windows batch file or Mac OS shell script, you can just look through that and run the same commands via ADB in the terminal.

That said, I have personally rooted an Evo 4G on a Linux machine before, so I know the software certainly exists. You will want to look at Revolutionary and unrevoked.

rooting evo

I saw this link and here is the method you want to use, follow dumpeddeuces instructions, except you will not need the drivers for they are built in with the linux download. You will want to extract the file to desktop and then open a terminal window and drag and drop it in and press enter. Then follow instructions and enter key. I had to do it a couple times to get it to take but hope the helps!
