    I've seen several threads on rooting and I am just about ready to give it a try. However, I haven't found a thread that talks about using a Mac instead of a PC. If there is a simple method that uses a Mac please let me know.

    God Bless:)

    Doesn't the MAC have a terminal emulator that can use ADB like linux?

    I probably should have mentioned that though I spend hours upon hours playing with my phone I actually am quite stupid about this rooting stuff. So, I have no idea if my mac has what you are speaking of.:icon_eek:
