    It's possible to root the international version on a Mac but I don't think it's possible for any US versions. I used bootcamp to set up a dual boot windows partition so that I could root.

    I had issues trying on my Mac as well. I think it has to do with the way the phone is set up to connect the computer (MTP) and it not properly loading drivers. I had to use a spare laptop I had laying around to do it via windows.

    You can use the one click method, don't even need to use your computer in that case. Generally I don't like the use of one-click methods but if you want to root and you don't want to dual boot your mac that is the only way I see it going. Here is the post with info about 1 click root method: http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...ota-users.html

    Download Adam outlers casual program the only thing is you are going to have to physically connect and disconnect your phone several times but it works great.
