    Rooted my Evo4g. Using toasts full method(both parts)

    still using the sprint rooted rom. Have a question though.

    Used Windows7 64bit to root my phone, but I am thinking about going to Linux Mint instead of Win7.

    Will there be any complications doing this? Can I still just transfer the zip files to the phone to flash roms to it and use ADB still if needed? Same with the Sprint RUU if i want to go back to stock?

    All Evo rooting is done via Linux, Android itself is a mobile Linux distro. The only reason you see Windows all over these rooting guides is because 95% of all users run Windows, adb can be run from a bash prompt all the same. I don't see why you'd have any problems.
