That all depenends on whether you know what you are doing when you open 
up the file system of the phone......and it still doesnt help with the 
upgrades, if you screw up when you delete a file, that is your operating 
system gone, and you dont get support from your phone company if you 
tell them you screwed up.....only way to get it back is to use 
Kies......and you cant use Kies in Ubuntu......I tried installing iTunes 
via Wine, it worked for about 5 minutes then I havent been able to get 
it to work since.....
