I am back on .602 because the 1-click methods were written for pc. There are work arounds but it's not so "1-click". The work arounds seem to include the Terminal, it's language, syntax, and su something or another.

I enjoy playing with my phone, but I'm not so invested that I want to learn computer languages. .602 works fine. I use the linux cd easy method to SBF. I would root the .605 if there were method that won't wreck my mac using nerve!

Any suggestions??

In the next 2 to 6 weeks, I'll be upgrading to the prime, if it's as great as everyone is speculating. If not, it will be the bionic. As I will be with either one of these phones for 1-2 years, I will probably invest more of my time to learn whatever I need to know.

As a fellow mac user I'd suggest you get the TBH app. It has .602 AIO updater rooted as well as .605 AIO updater rooted. No need to use a windows based pc. I've used the .602 updater. Some people have reported having issues with it. Worked perfect for me. Just follow the directions to the letter. Good luck

You are correct, should be moved. Better answers if posted in the right area.

I've used the OSX/Linux script a few times now, works without issue.
