    Default Problems rooting on Mac...

    So I am trying to root my GS3 on my Intel Mac running 10.5.8. I downloaded the casual file from the guide. When I open it java says it can't unzip check for errors on system. All my software is up to date. So I looked around and found I can unzip the file using Archive utility. That worked and I now have a Casual S3 folder in my applications now. However when I open it there is no application to run just tons of files. Any ideas?

    My goal is root/unlocked bootloader and flash clean rom 5 and the new jellybean camera. I would be extremely grateful if anyone can help get to that point. Thanks.

    Nice share. Worked fine for me too, although the script did throw the following:
    debugfs: debugfs: debugfs: debugfs: reboot #2 - DO NOT DISCONNECT YOUR DEVICE!
    All Done rooting Galaxy S3, install SuperUser or SuperSU app from Play Store to get full root!
    RootMac.sh: line 40: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `"'
    RootMac.sh: line 42: syntax error: unexpected end of file

    I confirmed that root=true by running Root Checker Basic.
