Set Up Your Moto X on a Mac
Posted January 17, 2014 at 04:30 pm by Samantha
If you’re an Android device owner who happens to use a Macintosh, you may feel a bit left out at certain times, especially with regards to toolkits and other software for your device. Sadly, the majority of toolkits run only on Windows PC, with Mac and Linux support unfortunately low on the list of priorities. Thankfully, there’s good news for Moto X and Mac owners, as XDA Forum Member mjphillips1981 developed a nice toolkit that helps you perform various Moto X tasks from the comfort of Mac OS X.
Inspired by a previously featured toolkit for the Moto X, the Moto X toolkit for Mac allows you to do pretty much everything you need to get your Moto X all set up (and maybe a bit more). These actions include:
- rooting your device (unlocked bootloader only)
- unrooting your device
- flashing stock recovery
- flashing factory images (back to stock)
- installing a new boot animation
- removing unwanted system apps
- activating mobile hotspot (only for AT&T and Verizon devices)
- installing ringtones and notifications to the system
This toolkit should work with any Moto X, even those carrier locked to Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. But it should be noted, especially by those with slower Internet speeds, that the tool is quite hefty in size, coming in at 87.15 MB.
If you would like to give this a go, head over to the original thread for more details and download.
