Default [Q] Mac Toolkit help please

I'm on the last step of mjphillips1981's mac toolkit for 4.4 rooting and it won't finish:

Code:
Press ENTER to finish the SlapMyMoto process.
Open a new terminal window by pressing Command+N
In the new terminal window type the following command
./adb shell echo "/data/local/tmp/install.sh" > /sys/kernel/uevent_helper
Press ENTER when you have finished the above command
I keep getting the error:

Code:
-bash: /sys/kernel/uevent_helper: No such file or directory
I've been at this all day

try this

open terminal
cd to the toolkit folder

type the following (one line at a time)
./adb shell
echo "/data/local/tmp/install.sh" > /sys/kernel/uevent_helper

I think these lines need to be separated.

Hit me up on Google+ and lets see if we can work through this.

An I would suggest that you put questions in the toolkit thread. I was just browsing and noticed this. If you put the question in the thread I get an email.

missed some commands it looks like but im not sure if anything is diffrent because your on a mac

but here is the step by step from jcase's thread


Step1)

Unzip SlapMyMoto-1,0.zip and push the jar file to your internal storage

Code:
adb push SlapMyMoto.jar /sdcard/SlapMyMoto.jar
Step2)

Use http://www.cydiaimpactor.com/ to open up a telnet session as system user on port 2222. We covered how to use Impactor and telnet in the RockMyMoto root, I won't be covering it again since this post is going to be long enough already, see here -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2509590 or http://rootzwiki.com/topic/107098-ro...the-first-ota/


Connecting over telnet, and run Stage1 with this command:

Code:
dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/SlapMyMoto.jar SlapMyMoto
When the device tells you to reboot, do this manually with "adb reboot" or your power button. It will not auto reboot on this step

Step3)

Once the device has rebooted, run Impactor again and connect over telnet just like in the previous step, then run the same command

Code:
dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/SlapMyMoto.jar SlapMyMoto
Once the device has rebooted, please take the 4.4 OTA.

Step4)
Now that we are on 4.4, we can finish the process with adb shell:


Code:
adb shell
cp /sdcard/install.sh /data/local/tmp/install.sh
chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/install.sh
echo "/data/local/tmp/install.sh" > /sys/kernel/uevent_helper

These commands are all in the toolkit. The only one that needed to be enter on individual lines is the one he listed.

I just wish he would have posted the question in the Toolkit thread so I could have helped earlier.

Thanks, I think this did it. The only thing is that I had to manually reboot my phone, but it appears I am rooted as I'm able to run root-only apps. XDA wouldn't let me post on your thread because I don't have the required number of posts. Glad you came across this thread! Thanks again

You're welcome! From what I read. Some people do experience that the phone does not reboot on its own.

Glad you got it working.

I just removed the toolkit. It's too hard to for me to get things working correctly when I do not have a consumer device to test with.
