    sorry if this is a dumb question but is it at all possible to root from a mac? i can boot up on windows 7 on my macbook pro but im reading windows 7 can sometimes cause issues


    edit: found this response off another thread :I don't have a Windows box, is there a method to do the SBF portion of the procedure on Mac?
    No. In theory you could compile sbf_linux for the Mac but the source code is not available. You're going to need at least temporary access to a Linux or Windows box to do this.

    Well to root a Droid just download Z4 Root and run it, you're done. To install a custom recovery you can D/L ROM Manager from the market and flash CWM or SPR after you rooted. To unroot a Droid running 2.2 there is a stock FRG22D image out there that when flashed from ANY custom recovery it will return the phone to stock as well as replace the custom recovery with the stock recovery removing all traces of root.

    There you have it. No PC needed.

    The one click root apps haven't always been successful or they get pulled for some reason or another. But so far this one seems to be working really well. Haven't used it personally but haven't read of too many people having issues.

    Because certain phones require a PC to be rooted. Examples would be the new HTC models like the G2, Desire HD, etc... due to the extra measures taken by the manufacturer to try and prevent permanent root.

    ^^^ pretty much. But if z4root doesn't work, there's a guide at my site as well.

    good luck
