I am switching from a S5 to the M8 shortly and am trying to find a guide on how to root this phone. It's very possible I just missed it while looking through the forum or maybe there isn't one at all. Keep in mind that I am a Mac user and have 0 access to a windows machine. Could some link me to a guide if one already exists or if one doesn't could anyone, with the knowledge to do so, make a guide on how to do this.

Thanks guys.

Here is the link to root but you might be out of luck if you can't use a PC. I believe this is only for PC and I think I read that a Mac version won't be worked on but I could be wrong.
Also, there is a video on YouTube that breaks down how to use the toolkit.

Yeah I've seen this one. It looks incredible other than being locked down to PC. Maybe I'll Downloader a virtual machine or something. Idk.
