Default Just got mine in the mail today and could use advice.

As I am new to the rooting world, I just have a few questions:

I purchased the Developer Edition, as I wanted to root my phone.

However, I am on an Apple computer and wanted to know if anyone could help me out.

How do I flash recovery for the M8 and install SuperUser on an Apple computer?

Thanks for the help.

There are tools that offer easy 1-click operations; but they're mostly WIndows only. I guess, the easiest way is for you to install Parallels; and download a copy of Windows. Go get the Developer trial copy directly from Microsoft (if still available?). Sure, it's a hassle to setup your workflow, but once you've got this going, you'll find it easier to root/flash your M8. Also, Android File Transfer on the Mac is… crappy (to say the least).

Here are links to the tools I mentioned:

Thank you this, my brother.

I actually have Parallels and I'm running Windows 8.1.

I didn't think to try this, as HTC drivers were a bit off for Windows 8 before.

Thank you again. My device is up and rooted!
