    Could be some answers there... Make sure you flash stuff for your device

    Since the JB Update, heimdall has not been updated to work with our phones yet. And my pc doesn't have the right processor to run windows 8 via VBox so I guess I'm just up a creek without a paddle for the time being

    if you can push recovery via adb you can flash the files after you flash the SU and busybox that way.

    But how do I flash the recovery without root permissions?

    i am no expert but if you flash the recovy with ADB you can set the permissions that way to get it to flash. then you reboot into recovery via adb and flash the root files.

    Maybe send DroidXcon a PM or Skunkape, they might/would know ADB better than I

    why do you need to run win 8?

    I was attempting to run 8 virtually so that I could use ODIN that way. I'm downloading the free version of 7 right now.

    im not familiar with the phone so i would not be comfortable with telling him to do this, but either way in order to flash the recovery we would need root access i believe so this is a catch 22

    This is why my machine is a dual boot Linux and Windows. While I am learning to do more and more in Linux, I still find myself going back to Windows and Odin for the majority of things I do. It's just easier and being a single dad, finding time to learn Linux has been difficult. Especially being that I have no one around me that can help.

    Oh yeah. Completely understandable. I ended up getting windows 7 running via VirtualBox by Oracle and got the usb drivers installed virtually that way. Then I just used Odin to get the recovery on and the root zip flashed. Yay 8 hour projects! Thats how I've managed to teach myself about linux lol. By force
