Hi,

As I don't have enough posts I have been redirected here by xda assist.

I am trying to root my Sony Z1C (D5503) and I have read about the new towel root method. There is a useful topic on towel root and Xperia phones including Z1C by (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2784900&page=7) but there is nothing about using this method with a Mac and I can't figure out how to do that. The guide says that it should work on Linux, don't know if that means that it can work on Mac with some minor changes...
There is a way to put the adb drivers on mac (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1917237 although I was not able to reset the path, not sure why) but that's as far as I went.

Or if not with towel root is there a way to root relatively easily a Z1C on mac ?

Thanks in advance

Thanks, I will try this in the afternoon. But I think the post was modified and now it referes to adb.exe (so windows).

Okay, finally home to try it !

So first problem (sorry ^^')

I do have adb on my android folder on my desktop but when I go to a terminal device I get
Quote:

pc3:android hamzamechbal$ ./adb devices
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
CB5A1XKHBH offline

So that's the good serial number but how do I get the online status ? Cause afterwards I get a error device is offline for the root steps...

Edit : I tried another adb file in the adb for mac guide and now instead of offline I get unauthorized -_-

Edit^2: Okay, I finally got the RSA authorization on the phone, so no more unauthorized problem. Back to the actual rooting.

Edit : Okay, so first step of pushing the file ok, then I type the second one (chmod 755), no response and when I try the third one I get
