Mac-Based Bootloader Unlock and SuperCID Script for the AT&T and Rogers One X
Unfortunately, Mac users sometimes don’t get the same amount of love as Windows and Linux fans when it comes to Android development. Tool kits, root methods, and other tweaks almost always start out as Windows- or Linux-based, leaving Mac users waiting, using virtual machines, or using their friends’ computers. Fortunately, the most important methods and tools eventually see Mac releases.
This is now the case for the AT&T and Rogers HTC One X, where the popular bootloader unlock and SuperCID script has been ported to Mac. Released by XDA Senior Member jnichols959, the script is identical to the Windows and Linux versions. The only real difference being that it’s now compatible with Mac. Now, all users can get unlocked and ready to modify their devices.
The script itself runs in two steps. Says jnichols959:
You can certainly stop the script after it finishes the first step if all you want is Super CID (maybe Rogers folks that are already unlocked but want Super CID). You can also run the script on a device that already has Super CID if you mainly want the script to do the actual bootloader unlock.

I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
