I'd like to root my HTC One V. Currently running Mac OS X 10.7.5.

Are there any tools specifically for this?

I'm trying to follow this guide: but having trouble with step 6 in the HTCdev-Unlock Bootloader guide. – Drew Ogryzek Feb 7 '13 at 7:43
I took the freedom to add your question to our rooting index, where we link one question per device (so future visitors looking for how-to-root-One-V should come here). You might want to check there, maybe a solution for a related device susch as the One X or One XL could work for you? – Izzy Feb 7 '13 at 8:12
HTC has a tool called HTC Quick Root tool it works with the latest crop of HTC’s Android devices, including the One X, One S and One V. As far as i'm aware it is available for PC only – Simon Feb 7 '13 at 12:02 does have some instruction regarding Mac OS X, for example, step 5 states "Note: for Mac OS X and Linux you will only need adb and fastboot." and even includes a link to fasboot for mac, but after that, it shows windows command prompt steps only. – Drew Ogryzek Feb 7 '13 at 19:55
@AndrewOgryzek Have a look at this article to see if it helps at all – Simon Feb 9 '13 at 13:04

AndroidForums has a guide for rooting the HTC One V.

I can't post the steps here, since the link is blocked at my current location.

That guide states, "If you run Mac, I can’t help you." I'm looking for something specific to Mac OS X. – Drew Ogryzek Feb 7 '13 at 7:28

If you can't root your phone because your on Mac OS X, try running a virtual machine that is running windows and root your phone from there. (I Personally don't have a Mac so am not 100% sure this will work, this is only a suggestion)

Matt07211 - That would probably make a better comment than answer, as it would still require purchasing and running Windows OS - Bootcamp would would also work, if that were a solution. Anyway, I've had 2 phone upgrades since posting that 2 and a half years ago! – Drew Ogryzek Aug 14 '15 at 6:01
My fault for not checking the date it was posted, sorry and at the time I was unable to comment as I don't have enough reputation – Matt07211 Aug 16 '15 at 1:44
