    Default Root Nexus 4.1.1 without wiping phone?

    Is there a way, preferably a one-click way to root the Nexus but not wipe everything (like the good ol' z4root days)?

    I'm finding my nexus is slowing a bit and I'd like to pump the processor a bit, but I'm really not interested in wiping the unit and starting from scratch (even with all of google's awesome auto syncing).

    Any ideas?
