Just follow the link provided in the XDA Forum. I don’t take any responsibility if it does not work. It generally works.

Installation in MAC :

Power off the Phone.

Use the Volume Up + Volume Down + Power button to start in Bootloader/fastboot mode.

***WARNING*** ALL YOUR DATA *MAY* BE WIPED ! ***WARNING***
We are going to run the OEM UNLOCK command on your device. If your device

After the unlock, CF-Auto-Root will boot. You should see a big red Android

It may take a minute or so for the red Android to appear. If it doesn't show up
at all, there may be a problem.
