Yes you can - use my toolkit:

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

repeated the procedure several times. Got the phone restarted. But can't mount /system with rw attributes. Need help. No second reboot takes place.

Error messages while running is

mount: Operation not permitted

mv: can't create '/system/xbin/su': Read-only file system

mv: can't create '/system/app/Superuser.apk': Read-only file system

cp: can't create '/system/xbin/busybox': Read-only file system

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 :)

If you're running Linux and got any patch installed then someone needs to port this to Linux :-

:downgrade

adb kill-server

adb start-server

adb wait-for-device

adb push C:\SanDiego\tools\flashtool data/local/tmp

C:\SanDiego\tools\adb.exe shell chmod 755 data/local/tmp/flashtool

adb push C:\SanDiego\tools\downgrade data/local/tmp

C:\SanDiego\tools\adb.exe shell data/local/tmp/flashtool -i recovery -w data/local/tmp/recovery.img

C:\SanDiego\tools\adb.exe shell data/local/tmp/flashtool -i fastboot -w data/local/tmp/boot.img

C:\SanDiego\tools\adb.exe reboot boot bootloader

C:\SanDiego\tools\fastboot -i 0x8087 flash update Bricked\update.zip

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