    Anybody have more detailed instructions for Mac users?
    I could use more detailed instructions as well. I have spent the past 2 hours trying to get this to work. I can't even get an executable file to download. I tried using the Android Side Loading Wonder Machine running paralells with Widows XP as well and that was a flop. I Can't get the drivers to link the android phone to Windows.

    I need a ROOT for MAC.

    I am having an issue getting the .sh file to install. whenever i try to find it in terminal then use sh swm-install.sh it says:

    HMB-Laptop-Computer:~ chris$ cd desktop
    HMB-Laptop-Computer:desktop chris$ sh swm-install.sh
    sh: swm-install.sh: No such file or directory

    what do i need to do to make it work? i want to be able to sideload some apps!

    I live in the US and have a Sony Experia 10 and am hopelessly stuck with Android 1.6. I long to just root my phone so that I can upgrade it, but due to At&t I cannot install apps that are not direct from the market. My research indicates that sideloading or debranding are my to options just to install Z4root so I can proceed with the upgrade.

    I am pretty good with software and hardware, but am a newb to this. Any help to get me going on sideloading on my Mac runninng 10.5.8 would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks- TheShamel

    Thumbs up works here.

    Some of you may be turned off by the terminal method, so try this with your file browser, a minimal use of terminal version...
    Put the swm-install.sh in your home folder.
    Right click on it and select >properties> permissions and set it as pictured.



    Make sure "allow executing file as program" is checked, then close properties/permissions.
    Double click on swm-install.sh and tell it to run then follow instructions. (this will be in a terminal)
    That should generate a folder in the home dir called "Sideload-Wonder-Machine"
    right click on it and set permissions as pictured.
    open the folder and set permissions on all files and folders and files in folders as above.
    one of the folders is "2-Place-App-Here". that is where you place the app you want to install. this is a one at a time deal, so only one app in that folder at a time.
    Now you can follow the rest of the instructions for first use etc.
    You might want to try displaying menu.sh just to see what it is about to do. right click,
    >open>display.
    That should get ya going..

    ok, i went through this whole thread.. i modified the menu.sh so i would see the first run set up, the computer isnt finding my phone...

    "Please connect your phone now and make sure that 'USB Debugging' AND 'Unknown Sources' are checked. You can find these in 'Settings > Applications' on your phone.

    Once you've done that, press enter.

    sudo: ./adb: command not found
    If you see your device above, you are ready to start!

    To disable this on startup, open 'menu.sh' (this) in a text editor and change the 'first_use' variable near the top from 'yes' to 'no'.
    Press enter to continue the first use setup."

    its plugged in, in charge only, debug, and moc locations mode(s), but it wont show up....

    the SWM folder is in my home folder, there is only 1 app (amazon appstore) in the "2 place app here" folder" but my my phone just wont show up on the computer.....

    what am i doing wrong?

    ok so i don't really know what to do. im a beginner at this kind of thing trying to put an apk file i downloaded to my phone. i don't know what to do. can someone give me directions of what to do from beginning to end that would be very helpful. so far i downloaded the swm-mac folder opened that up opened the menu.sh in terminal and i am looking at the menu screen. then i put the apk i desired in the 2-place-app-here folder and tried pressing 1 in the terminal. then this showed up /Users/jamesdora/Downloads/swm-mac/menu.sh: line 84: scripts/pushtodata.sh: No such file or directory

    so i dont really know what to do from here. oh and i opened the adp file once and thats all i have done i honestly have no clue what to do and if someone could give me some direction i would be very grateful.

    You'll get this error if you aren't executing menu.sh from within the swm-mac directory. You need to change to the swm-mac directory in Terminal, then enter ./menu.sh at the command prompt. (There may be another reason you're getting this error, but that's the most likely. And yes, I know I'm replying to a post that's 8 months old, but I had the same issue and thought I'd post the solution to save others the trouble of figuring it out on their own.)

    Easiest way for someone not familiar with the command line is to do this:

    1. Open Terminal.
    2. Type "cd " at the command prompt. (No quotes, and make sure there is a space after "cd".) DO NOT HIT ENTER!
    3. Back in the Finder, drag and drop the swm-mac folder onto the Terminal window. This will automatically add the path to the file after "cd ".
    4. Press Enter. This will change your path to the swm-mac directory. From there, you can type "./menu.sh" and press Enter and things should work as expected.


    Hope this helps,
    Brent

    Same here ... when I run the script I get permission denied.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    ./swm-install.sh (from terminal window)

    Try this: in that same directory in Terminal, type "chmod 755 swm-install.sh" (minus the quotes) and press Enter. Then try that command again. The script may not be executable by default and the command I suggested will do that.
