    Default Rooting Nexus 4 4.4.2 without wiping data?

    I have an unlocked bootloader Nexus 4, 4.4.2. I do not wish to wipe my data before rooting the phone, is there a way to do so?

    Thanks.

    I'm no expert at rooting, but I dont think i've heard of a way to not wipe your data. I would back it up before you proceed.

    If your bootloader is already unlocked you don't have to wipe anything, rooting doesn't wipe your data. Just install a custom recovery or use fastboot to root, a decent guide lies within the stickies.

    If you're going from pure stock to unlocking the bootloader and rooting, I don't believe there is a reliable way to save everything. You MIGHT be able to do some workaround to back things up but I'm not positive.
