    Question about rooting with a Mac

    I am running the latest Mac OS and I noticed Mac's don't seem to play entirely nice with some of the processes in rooting. I am curious to see the success level people have in rooting with a Mac. I can do all the updates manually and stuff like that but I have finally decided to give rooting a try and a trying to get back to 2.0.1 but my mac wont install rsdlite, what can I do to fix this?

    Get a real operating system. Just kidding, or am I?

    Seriously though you are kinda stuck unless you can get to a Windows PC to flash it. There have been reports of people getting RSDLite to work through WINE or something along those lines, but a lot of people have said it doesn't work either. Heck a lot of Windows computers have some problems with it.

    Yeah that's what I have been hearing too. I have an old sony windows xp laptop, but the thing is a PITA to use sometimes.

    I dunno anything about rsd but i went the droidroothelper route and had no issues at all. The only thing I have found that the mac has a hard time with is file compression ratios so if you want to unzip something to edit, say, icons and then try to compress the file back down using the stock mac option the zip files can't be read by the droid.

    I have had no problems with doing anything using my mac. i have made changes to xml files and .apk files and changed things up to how I want them i use keka to compress the files before i push them back onto my phone using adb. If you have any specific questions please feel free to ask. and i will help if I can.

    I am trying to get back to 2.0.1 obviously rsd lite won't work on a mac so what can I use that would be comparable to that to flash back?

    So you already have the updated baseband? What recovery image are you using?
