Default Root Galaxy S 3 Using Mac

Just received a new T-Mobile SGS3 with 4.3 preloaded. Any way to root it only using a Mac? I've tried several old methods including motochopper to no avail.

That does not help me at all. This method still uses a PC. I need a method using a Mac.

You can use Mobile ODIN and still get the job done.

How can I use Mobile Odin without having root already?

Since you only need it to flash Recovery, it may work during Reboot. Try CF Auto Root otherwise.
