Anyone else trying to Root on a Mac?
If you are and keep getting a bash when you try to run adb shell
type in ./adb shell instead... it will run adb shell like in windows. You can use a loop because Macs don't use .bat files though.
Anyone else has any tips for Mac users only then post them here.

yupp. pretty annoying and I just found out how to do this earlier after two nights of unsuccessfully trying on mac & using parallels and making me want to shoot my computer.
i finally got into the c:/ does not exist thingy but I couldn't load up the files on the mac so I just quit out of recovery. boo hoo.
I was wondering the same ... i just loaded up vmware a copy of windows 7 and it worked after hours of trying on my win xp desktop .
Why would you use VMware, that's just really unnecessary... Looping is REALLY easy in terminal, just type in 'while true; do ./adb shell; done' while cd'ed into the android sdk, tools folder. Hell, to be honest, you don't even need to loop it, it's really unnecessary. I got it going by typing in './adb reboot recovery', then rapidly pushing in and out the micro SD card (about once every half second, somewhat fairly fast IMO) until it reached the restore screen. After, I just typed in './adb shell' and it worked my first try.
because it's easier to do on windows because that's what all of the download packs from the '10 minute roots' are geared towards. it makes everything easier. I'm on a mac but I used my netbook to root, mac was too much hassle without bat files cause I wasn't going to go out of my way to make new shell files and script files
