    I've been running an iPhone 3GS until last month. Now I'm on this galaxy s4. I really want to root it, but I use a Mac, and I'm very nervous about that idea. What do I do?

    Hi burritosaurus :ciao: Welcome to the forums!

    Check this thread and the second video. Its supposed to be for mac users.

    I think everyone is nervous the first time rooting. I know I was. :D

    The best rooting advice I can give is read, read, read. :)

    Thanks. I've seen that video before, but I'm still uncomfortable doing it on a Mac.

    I'm an engineering student with the desire to have more hands-on experience in technological things, and like to be able to tweak/customize my phone for my own preferences
