Everything worked great following your instructions.
Funny thing is, I almost immediately flashed back to CM7 2.3.3 after checking it out. I got busybox installed and had Titanium up and running, and lo and behold it treated my fresh apps backup as un-installable. I even rebooted, made sure to rescan my backups, and every single user app was still crossed thru with a line. I'd forgotten how great CM7 was til I got back on stock. I think I'll just wait for the CM team to get to 2.3.4 fully. Not to mention T-Mobile screwed us over on 3G vid chat. Not sure why it was advertised when carrier the phone launched with won't even allow it.

Installed 2.3.4 now my phone is un-rooted.
When I follow your steps after placing the Zip onto my root and reboot I get
(Andorid System Recovery <3E>) with options:
reboot system now
apply update from /sdcard
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition
I've tried to apply the zip with "apply update from/sdcard" and it gives me an error....
What should I do?

Re: Easy method to update to 2.3.4 (rooted)
Greetings from the UK.
I've a rooted Nexus S (Samsung GT-I9020), on Android Version 2.3
Kernel Version: 184.108.40.206-g119403d
Build number@ GRH55
I do get a system update notification offering to take me to Gingerbread MR2 (2.3.4)
I assume if I do this I will no longer be rooted.
(1) Is this a correct assumption?
Your instructions are very clear, but I notice the 2nd download is for (GRI40 to GRJ22)
(2) Will I be OK to run your whole procedure on GRH55?
Having only just purchased my phone 1 day ago, I have successfully tried the Cyanogen(mod) 7.0.3.
Disappointed in boot-up time (1 min 20 secs) to Home screen, and it didn't look much better than what I started off with! I decided to go back and restore to what I had before. I'm on the lookout for a good ROM.
(3) Any recommendations?
Look forward to hearing from you.
