Just ordered my G2 on T-Mobile. I would like to update to KitKat once it comes. I know you need to download the LG Mobile Support tool. My question is, is that available for Macs? If not how do I go about getting the update?

why don't you root, install a custom recovery, and then flash a kitkat rom.
that way you would keep root privileges

Get yourself a virtual machine?
I've got a mac myself but never thought about it, a virtual machine is good to have for stuff like this

Yes. But unless it's working today, It has can't communicate with server errors. The easiest way, besides waiting for the OTA, is to use the LG Flash Tool on Windows.

I never got LG PC Suite to work in OsX it always throws a communication error on me. So better use a virtual Windows machine or Bootcamp

Second the Virtual Machine
I also have a Mac. A real good, fast MacBook Pro. I keep a PC desktop installed just to deal with some of these issues. Synching is not an issue, lots of solutions for that. But when it comes to rooting or restoring - to my knowledge - only solution seems to be installing a small Windows virtual desktop.
