Question [Q] [Root] KFHD "7 | HowTo Root on Mac?

I dont get it managed to root my KFHD "7.
Its on 11.3.2 and Im using the stock USB Cable (is factory cable mandatory?). I made chmod 777 for the RunMe.sh and Im running a MacBook Pro on Mavericks.
"./adb devices" shows my device...
I already found this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=347
I absolutely do not understand, why it wont work. Of course for some of you it will become absolutely obvious, why it wont work, when they read this.
This is what I get:

Please connect device with ADB-Debugging enabled now ...
remote object '/system/bin/ric' does not exist

Now unlock your device and confirm the restore operation.
Please look at your device and click RESTORE!
If all is successful i will tell you, if not this shell will run forever.
Running ...
Successful, going to reboot your device in 10 seconds!
Waiting for device to show up again ...
Copying files to it's place ...
mount: permission denied (are you root?)
You can close all open command-prompts now!
After reboot all is done! Have fun!

Yes, Im root user on the Mac.

Thanks for your help!

Ps: These are the threads I already read and Im looking at...

You can't put custom ROMs on the 2013 HD(which I identified by the 11.x.x os), only root access. On another note I just realized that that rooting thread for the 2013 HD didn't have a Linux/Unix compatible rooting script, only a batch file which is for windows, I assume the script is pretty simple, haven't looked at it yet. How about I convert it to bash and see if it will work for ya? I'll just have to grab the mac location for bash but other than that its pretty straightforward.

Yea that's a 2013 model, we can't install ROMs on that model, also reread my post, I was editing it when you answered back.

I read it now. Thanks, that would be great. Althought I will most probably send it back, because I were not aware of that fact and the stock ROM is slow and ugly 😞 But nevertheless that would be good for other Mac users too, I think 😊
