[Q] What exactly did HTC do to blow up Mac syncing? and is there a fix?

As the title says, I use a mac and I have been unable to use both my M7 (After 4.4 Update) and my M8 on my mac. To be specific, android file transfer never sees the phone. Occasionally when booting my phone up when connected the manager pops up with a phone could not connect message, but it has never worked. This is isolated to just HTC phones for me, I verified my setup is fine with a Note 10.1 2014 (running 4.4.2), Nexus 5 (4.4.2), and a S4 (4.2). All of those connect fine.

I know there were some threads about HTC breaking something but I haven't seen a fix yet. Is there one?

If you're rooted, try DriveDroid. Let it acquire root, skip the setup, then tap on the Settings icon on the bottom bar. Then tap USB Settings and select Manually Change Permanent USB Mount. Select Media Transfer Protocol Android Debugging. Now connect your device. You should be good to go.

I hope not. I Loathe HTC Sync. Damn thing never quits right, doesn't run particularly well, and I just don't want another service running if I don't really need it. When I'm done with finals though I will try that. I have a bad feeling your right though...

If you restart the computer with the phone still plugged in, Android File transfer will work.
