It's nice to see someone else using Linux - I use Mint myself, 99% of the time :)

Is this a recently acquired OSD? It might be patched which prevents rooting using that script.

Fortunately you can get round it by plashing the Xolo Rom using the phone, then run the AIO tool to root and beyond.

shout if thats not intelligible :)

Just run it as a standalone script. Then you can use glossy's Linux port of the rooting tool.
