I will be using fastboot on macOS. I will be following this tutorial.

The guide only mentions Windows and Linux, and I do not wish to install those on my Mac right now, and as I think fastboot is the same on all platforms, I figure I might just use macOS.

However, the guide says:

Linux users will need to change the extension to .sh and add sudo before each command or directly run it as root.

Does that apply on macOS also? Should I add sudo before each fastboot command?

    The file extension has no meaning in Unix – mmmmmm Jul 27 '18 at 20:29

    Why don't you try it and see what happens? If it works without sudo: yay If it works with sudo: yay – JBis Jul 27 '18 at 21:29

    What @JBis said. I don't see why this can't be attempted. You have a 50/50 shot of getting it right on the first go. – Allan Jul 27 '18 at 22:05
