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: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1869667 but having trouble with step 6 in the HTCdev-Unlock Bootloader guide. –  Andrew 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 forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1870652 –  Simon Feb 7 '13 at 12:02
    
htcdev.com/bootloader/unlock-instructions/page-2 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 htcdev.com/process/legal_fastboot_mac, but after that, it shows windows command prompt steps only. –  Andrew Ogryzek Feb 7 '13 at 19:55
    
@AndrewOgryzek Have a look at this article to see if it helps at all bestandroidblog.com/how-to-unlock-the-bootloader-in-htc-one-v –  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. –  Andrew Ogryzek Feb 7 '13 at 7:28
