There are three things I love -- open source, Linux, and ingenuity. Android Central forum member 42turkeys brings all three together, along with some serious Mac love in his versions of the Sideload Wonder Machine for Linux and Mac. Using the same premise as we did with the Windows version, you can now sideload apps to your
crippled AT&T branded Android phones using your Mac or Linux computer.
Because Linux and MacOS have a robust shell, these are terminal applications. It's a fair trade -- you're not getting the point and click GUI, but you can do a bit more through the menu. And if you're using Mac OS, or especially Linux, you shouldn't be afraid of the terminal. Hit 42turkey's forum thread HERE to download either version, and get you some sideload on.
Nice work Mr. turkeys ... very nice! [Android Central Forums]
