Root NS4G w/ICS and no device wipe?
Does the standard root procedure work after the ICS update?
Why does the root procedure require a wipe and is there a way around this? Spent 20 hours customizing this phone the way I wanted...20 hours I cant get back!Treo 650 > HTC Mogul > HTC Touch Diamond > BB Curve > Palm PRE- > HTC Evo / BB Bold > Nexus S 4G

There is an option.
If you have a Windows based computer you can use the following thread/app to backup your device and then you can root/install CWM and then restore your data back to your device.

Here's a tip if your bootloader was unlocked before the update u can root without wiping your data seeing as u don't have to unlock it again just root and install the latest recovery
