    Has anyone found a way to root my GS3 with an Apple computer?

    Don't want to see "get a PC" because I don't care.

    Thanks guys!

    If you need to use Odin, that isn't available for Macs. However an open source flasher called Heimdall can be used on macs or linux to take the place of Odin. All the other steps would be roughly the same.

    When I was back on 4.0.4 I used heimdall and that worked, I just didn't know if it would work with 4.1.2

    They're really iffy when it comes to using the USB ports. Kind of a pain in the ass.

    Nah, I can't remember that it was a pain in the last part of my nick :D

    I've written some FAQ (in german though) concerning flashing under Linux via Virtualbox... It was all easy going and I flashed Nokia, Sony-Ericsson, eten, etc.
