    Rooting Android Phone

    I had been trying to figure out since a long time how I could root an Android phone completely in Ubuntu.
    I searched a lot of different android developers forums but most of them only talked about doing it on windows comp.
    I finally tried unlocking the bootloader of my mobile with fastboot and ADB (installed from the repo) and it was so easy to do that.
    But I still need help in rooting my phone. Does any one has any experience doing it esp. on a Huawei phone ?
    Kindly advise.

    Thanks.
    That link shows us how we could use packages to root phones but most of those packages are not available in the repo.
    Why do we use third party applications ?
