    Should work, but you'll need to attach the usb device to your vm. It can get tricky if it reboots and the root program is looking for the phone, so just make sure its attached.

    Don't do it. Even when I have eventually succeeded, it was based on trial and error. Rooting the phone on a Windows computer is a piece of cake using SUT LR and Super One Click. If you are like me, a 100% linux user, I would recommend you a tiny windows xp partition to handle these kind of situations.

    Regards.

    make sure you use the right rooting software for your baseband.
    gigerbreak works well up to and including zv5. zv9 needs gordita root.
    superoneclick and z4root only work on zv4.

    I'm pretty sure only SuperOneClick version 1.64 worked to root the V. Had to use the Shell Root option and then push SU and Busybox as well as change permissions with a terminal on the computer, after proper setup of the Android SDK.

    Z4 Root never has worked for the V

    I remember my first V, I mesed with z4root and superoneclick but couldn't remember which did what or if either failed. by the time I got a new one gingerbreak was out.

    To root opti-s zv7 recovery I used rageagainstthecage binary from superoneclick for sure though.

    Yep.
    The root exploit for the S has been improved. There is now an Opti-auto root that only requires a few simple y's from terminal.
