Such questions should rather be asked at the Android SE site. Rooting or installing a custom rom on an Android device does not depend on a certain host operating system. –  LiveWireBT Feb 7 at 15:38
    
I'm searching for a software for ubuntu that can root my phone :) –  Scotia 웃 Feb 7 at 17:38
    
@Scotia there is none. You need specific software targeted to the PHONE not the OS. –  Rinzwind Feb 7 at 18:33

Making root is for your Device OS not your Device, so its better to look for 'Make Root Android XX' . However There are some packages for both Linux and Windows . I think this would be helpful :
