    Has or will anyone describe the process in detail for the mac users out there.

    I'm on a standard Eris and would like to move to the unofficial ROOTED 2.1 rom... but I don't own a PC and am hesitant about doing it without some guidance.

    Thanks in advance.

    The only difference for Mac users:

    You probably don't have to worry about downloading Java, and if you use Safari step A3 is done for you.

    For Step A5, the Mac SDK that you downloaded in A1 already has the drivers. Don't worry about downloading them separately.

    Skip steps A8 and A9.

    For step A10, you'll have to type "./adb shell" instead of just "adb shell" (no quotations). You'll have to put "./" in front of every adb command, including the ones to install Amon's recovery image.

    The whole guide is here
