I've upgraded from the HTC one x to the M8 and was wondering if there were any ways to root via a mac, I know it's do-able with AIO kits on windows as well as apps like weaksauce for the VerizonM8. In terms of using stuff like Parallels I don't see the justification in purchasing it just for to do a certain thing when hundreds(probably!) will be in the same boat, any info on what would be the best route for me to take would be appreciated!
