You can't. You could use bootcamp and do it, but since you need ODIN (and it only works on windows), your best option is to just use a windows pc.

And yeah, there are programs like heimdall for mac, but I've tried it and it fails when it tries to get the PIT file (partition map).

I have used heimdall before and it is such a pain. If you have access to a windows pc you will be better off and much easier interface, in my opinion.
