Android Flash Tools for Mac (OS X) - jsk108 - 10-26-2016

Hi guys,

Does someone know how an Android phone can be successfully flashed via OS X system. I have Xiaomi Redmi 1 bricked phone, which i tried to flashed with SP Flash tool on Windows, but the MDK drivers were not working properly, so I prefer to somehow do it on my Mac machine?

After I tried to first format the phone and got multiple times error, due the fact the drivers were not working, the phone is not even starting as before. I could use the fastboot option but no longer this is an option for me..

In OS X there is adb/fastboot options, but this isn't going to work for my case, so if someone knows how to flash xiaomi phone on os x will be so useful to know. Thanks in advance.

there's no available SP flash tool for Mac OS. so you'll have to use a windows PC 
and follow the procedures @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-159.html

you can install adb on macOS; refer to https://www.xda-developers.com/install-adb-windows-macos-linux/
use the regular fastboot commands to flash images e.g fastboot flash system system.img
if you still have any other problems then this is someone else's thread, create a new thread for your device issue
see https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-514.html for how to create a thread
