If you're not the first time on my webpage, you'll notice that I've changed again the domain name of this place - now it's "nikolaus.xyz". A short FAQ about this change:

This week bin4ry from theXDA-forum released a nice ROOT-method for many ICS-Android phones, working with a Windows computer. Because I'm almost only on Linux, I've ported his tool to Linux: Root MANY Android for Linux.

Tested it with my Xperia P without problems, hopefully my ported script helps others too :-)
