    Thread moved from the GSM Hero to the Sprint/CDMA Hero section.

    Make sure you're only flashing stuff for CDMA phones; GSM stuff will brick it.

    There is a precompiled SDK for Linux on the Google Development site. Just get that and go through the manual rooting process. ADB is your friend.

    I can't get the Android SDK or ADB to work at all on my Ubuntu (10.04) machine (64 bit). I have tried everything, installing the 32 bit library, java, etc. Nothing works.
