Been having some issues with my phone, even after performing a few complete system wipes. Read that flashing back to complete stock and doing it all from scratch, root, tasks Rom, gaps, restore, can fix a lot of problems.

I have a MacBook and don't have Windows installed anymore. Is there any way for me to do this easily on my Mac? A guide would be especially appreciate.

Thanks a lot

Heimdall should work, although you may need to build it from source

Probably not the answer you are looking for, but use a friend's pc?

looks like either heimdall or mobile odin. if your phone is rooted and running cwm or twrp, why not use a flashable stock firmware zip?
