    Hello all, I have a iMac running Mac OS 10.6. I am trying to figure out how to run ADB Shell with my Motorola Droid. Everything thing that I find on the net does not show me how to use ABD shell it just references it. I need to figure out how to run ADB shell because I just overclocked my Droid and now the wifi isn't work and I know there is a fix out there, but I don't know how to use ADB shell to apply the fix. Can someone please lead me to a tutorial on how to use ADB or give me the steps on how to do them on a Mac.

    Thanks.

    Did you use a windows pc to overclock the Droid? If so, its much easier using a PC because all of the directions are copy/paste. You should still be able to do the same thing via terminal, you just have to navigate to the proper file correctly. I haven't rooted my phone because I have a mac and I've been patiently waiting for an update (Hero, not droid, but same general concepts apply). I'd rather be able to follow along correctly with copy/paste my first time instead of risking my phone being bricked (even though I know its almost impossible to do as long as it boots with the RUU, which is conveniently a .exe file for us Hero users).

    I overclocked it with my mac. There is no help out there for people with Macs. Everything is on PC. And the help that is out there for PC is very limited and you have to know all the lingo that goes with the Android SDK.
