    Default rooting ee4 on mac

    Anyone know if there is a way to root ee4 on a mac, I currently cannot run bootcamp on my macbook because my harddrive is full and cannot partition. Any help would be appreciated.

    Nope. You need windows sadly. I have a mad and had to borrow friends pc. But have since installed bootcamp.

    thanks so much, maybe i will just borrow a laptop or make space for bootcamp, can i use an external hd to use as a partition for bootcamp? Sorry I am not really sure about the details of installing bootcamp.

    You can try the heimdall way. My understanding is that it works with macs but are more labor intensive: Heimdall Instructions - xda-developers

    here is more info:http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&highlight=mac

    nachocheez,

    If you would like to use bootcamp I just made a video on using a windows upgrade disk on a mac air. And some videos on how to root your Droid Charge. ‪kraisydave's Channel‬‏ - YouTube

    Heimdall is very unreliable, in my experience. I would dual boot using bootcamp. Thats what I do on my macbook. You could try virtualbox as well, but dual boot would be the best and most reliable solution.
