PM3 Easy changed usergroup on OSX`

I updated my PM3x Easy the other day after thinking i had bricked it months ago.

Everything worked great, i recently updated OSX and i was getting

[!] :warning: ERROR: invalid serial port /dev/tty.usbmodemiceman1

When attempting to connect.

running

./pm3 --list

Gave me
1: /dev/tty.usbmodemiceman1

running

ls -l /dev/tty.usbmodemiceman1

showed:

crw-rw-rw-  1 root  wheel  0x9000016 Jul 10 14:20 /dev/tty.usbmodemiceman1

No idea how this got added to the wheel group.

I had to run:

sudo dscl . -append /groups/wheel GroupMembership USERNAME

Replacing username with your user’s name on OSX. This made ./pm3 connect just fine just as before.

No idea if the new firmware, or OSX Updates caused this but these are the steps i had to take to get it to work again.
