    I previously had a rooted droid and now have received a replacement which has the updated 2.1. Now, my problem is that I have a mac and there seems to be no other way than using rsd lite. Problem is that I already used the free time limit to root my previous droid. Now what do I do?

    Again, nice to meet you all and I hope this isn't a severe intrusion.

    Hey, I've moved your topic over to the Droid rooting section for you. The introduction section isn't really for questions so you probably wouldn't get much help there.

    Welcome to the forum! :)

    1-Buy a PC running windows (sorry)
    2-Use a friend's PC
    3-Use a library PC where they let you install applications
    4-Install some Virtual Machine software like VMWare Player or VirtualBox . Not sure if VMWare works on a Mac but I believe VirtualBox does. Then, find a copy of windows somewhere and install it, or find a trial of windows somewhere....
    5-Look on craigslist and find someone to root it for like 15bucks...

    Both of those work on Mac. You could also use bootcamp.

    Here is a guide that may help you using Linux on VirtualBox.
