    I feel like I'm running in circles on this one....I'm trying to root my C Spire S4 SCH-R970X from my iMac. I do have access to a PC (all I have to do is walk down the hallway to my daughter's laptop), but I want to know if I can do it from my iMac instead, as this is the computer I always use.

    I have found threads on this site and others on how to root the phone, or how to use a Mac, but not a specific on my phone with a Mac.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction before I give up and steal my daughter's laptop for a while? :D

    A really smart person let me know you would get better help here in the US Cellular All Things Root subforum. So I moved it.:)

    Thanks!

    I just checked it and and am still having problems with my Mac getting it to run it. My daughter's laptop is old and slow as dirt. I tried it last night and got frustrated with that dang computer!
