I never tested, so I can't tell you, I'll check the Root method for m919 and then I'll send you an updated script. But I've been quite busy, so I still have to develop the Mac script. As soon as I can I send you.

Windows relies on .bat files, which is very different from .sh, I was developing the Windows version, however I never ended, because as I said, I'm quite busy currently. As soon as I can I'll do it! But, you can try running it with Cygwin.

Thanks! I actually went ahead and figured out how to use Heimdall, but others might still find it useful to know.
