    I don't know much about rooting a phone but I was doing some reading on here and it looks like most of the files for rooting or "unbricking" your phone are Windows compatible only. Is this true or will this work with Mac OSX? Thanks.

    bump...

    i really need this too. i've been googling and searching this forum with no luck. come'on Droid fans, as much as some of us Mac users LOVE our Droids, we only have Macs to work with in terms of rooting, etc.

    Any help would be be greatly appreciated.
