Problem with your forums method to root my Samsung Epic G

    I've tried your forum recommended method for rooting my phone. I use a Macbook Pro, not a Windows PC (I have one at work, but I'm not the admin, and it's none of their business anyway).

    Downloaded the files to a directory on my mac, extracted what needed to be extracted. Ended up with one executable for drivers, called Samsung_Mobile_USB_Driver_V1.3.800.0.msi,
    and another directory with an executable for more drivers, called USB Drivers, and a directory for your root method, called one.click.root.exploitv2.5.5. The file run.sh was already executable for the owner, but I did chmod +x run.sh just for the record.

    None of the driver executables will run on my mac. There's no program that I have that will open them. Not knowing what else to do, I ran the root method just to see what would happen. Below is the output to a

    dr-general-1-125:eek:ne.click.root.exploitv2.5.5 hughbowen$ ./run.sh
    Original one click made by joeykrim and one click installer made by noobnl and firon
    busybox by skeeterslint
    Press any key to continue...
    Starting adb server
    ./run.sh: line 23: adb: command not found
    ./run.sh: line 26: adb: command not found
    ./run.sh: line 33: adb: command not found
    ./run.sh: line 35: adb: command not found
    Phone is not connected. Press any key to continue.\n

    I need help with this. I previously tried to use Z4root, another so-called
    fool-proof method to root, and it didn't work. I posted a query to the Samsung Epic G forum earlier today, on that but when I look for it, I can't find it. I need this to use the app Copy Paste It, which requires root. I can't believe Android doesn't have this built into it.
    Help please!
    Best, Ferrel

    I followed the instructions, etc. Ran it. Here's the final output.


    Not sure what happened here. Either the exploit failed or the
    reboot failed. Please reboot manually and see if you have

    I rebooted (battery out - in). No superuser.
