I have searched and have found little information about rooting the droid x with a mac. Is this possible or do I have to have a PC to Root?
Thanks

im interested as well. I hope a root is available with terminal emulator like the root for 2.1, this way we avoid the fuss of downloading drivers and so forth.

Search for doroot.sh I think the third version all you do is a couple steps in the terminal and it roots it for you even the ota

The post from phildo worked for me! Took a couple tries, but we got it rooted. I did it on a macbookpro,usb debugging enabled, and on charge only mode. Thanks again!

I'm gonna pull the links that don't belong, I don't want members to try installing something that isn't OS compatible.

Hi,

Just download ADB from Motorola for the Mac and root via the terminal.
Or you can download the files to your phone via a computer and root completely on the phone with a terminal app.

I'm also a Mac user, and I rooted mine using Z4root, downloaded from the Android Market. Quick and painless, and no need to involve the Mac at all.
