Want to root...am a newbie and a little clueless.
Decided to root my Droid DNA for all the good stuff that comes as a result. I've done a lot of research and all the guides I've come across assume that the user already knows a lot about this kind of stuff, which I don't. There's all this talk about kernals, moonshine, and S-OFF.
Basically, I want to root but don't want to brick my device. I'm on a mac (and have read that being on one changes the rooting process). So far I have looked at this,
[s-off] Moonshine s-off for Droid DNA - UPDATE | Droid DNA > XDA and this, RK World: Easy way to Set up ADB and Fastboot on a Mac but don't really know where to go from here.
It's a shame that there isn't a step-by-step guide for people like me. I can't be the only clueless one here, right?
I'm interested in trying to get sense 5 on my DNA, but right now just want to make it so that I can remove all the stock crap, customize it, and be able to control it more.

Re: Want to root...am a newbie and a little clueless.
The moonshine method is pretty straightforward. Just follow the steps at Moonshine.io. Even though you have a Mac, I think you can use a Linux Live CD.
