Mac Users Now Have Their Own Nexus 7 Toolkit
Very recently, we brought you news of an awesome toolkit for the Nexus 7. It brought many features and gave Nexus 7 users a stable tool to do a lot of things. However since it was for Windows users only, many Mac users were left longing for their own. Thankfully, there is now a toolkit available for Mac users to easily flash and modify their Nexus 7 devices.
Released by XDA Senior Member techfanatic9, the tool is actually based off of a number of scripts that previously wouldn’t work on a Mac. This is especially helpful for users who aren’t familiar with Nexus devices or Android in general. It provides Mac users with a number of features, including:
* Root Nexus 7
* Restore / Unroot Nexus 7 to Stock 4.1
* Install ClockworkMod Recovery on Nexus 7
* Unlock Bootloader on Nexus 7
* Lock Bootloader on Nexus 7
Given that Mac-compatible root methods often come late, it’s nice to see that the toolkit appear on the Nexus 7. Additionally, techfanatic9 has released each feature as a separate script, meaning that you can download each piece as needed or download the full set to have the full tool. For more information, check out the toolkit thread.
