    This is for my Metro PCS Samsung Admire:
    Let me start by saying I am NOT a developer my any means, so please bare the stupid questions.

    The Short of It: Rooted my phone, installed titanium backup pro, created filter for "bloat melt", activated "bloat melt" titanium requested Reboot.

    On the reboot my phone would get stuck at the samsung screen. After Several tries i am able to get my phone to boot in recovery mode, however I cant seem to get into download mode. (I am assuming they are different) I have tried the factory reset-No good, I have tried the update. Zip-Cant find.

    I am seen some instructions, but I am running a mac. PLEASE HELP!!!!
