    Hey, please dont be sorry. Your one-click root saved me a lot of hassle. We all need to thank you for creating tools like that. Thanks for your time.

    Sorry for the super-noob question, but do you need Android SDK installed before running batch file. In reading through the instructions and this thread, I don't think you do, but I wanted to be sure.

    I had this root done, and then got the update OTA, but now am starting at an exclamation point and a pensive Android guy. What do I do now?

    Awesome method, was super easy. Easier than I thought. Hell, that was easier than modding the Palm pre.

    ok so did I do something wrong. After I rooted all of my pictures and everything was gone. Did I miss a step somewhere? I followed the instructions on the screen. Any help would be great. Thank you.

    Yes, it works fine.

    That is correct behavior, unlocking and rooting by this method causes your phone to do a factory reset which wipes all data. Not sure if there is a warning, there probably should be one if there isn't.

    That's ****ty but oh well. There might have been a warning and I might have missed it. I don't care so much about resetting it back uip. I just wish I would have backed up my pictures. oh well.

    Ok, so I rooted my phone before the update, and now after the update I appear to no longer be rooted. Do I have to go through the rooting process again (and have to wipe my phone again....sigh) or is there an easier way to regain root without having to wipe?

    if your bootloader is unlocked then no wiping will happen, however if you locked it again then yes there will be data lost.

    as for new updates etc, this tool will work on the nexus s for the end of time

    Search the market for "wireless tether". Install the root version. If you do that exact search, it should be the first entry that pops up.

    Thanks to shabby, I did the root. Easy peezy weezy.

    I don't know if this is a question for this forum (probably better at XDA), but do you think that a non-wipe root will EVER be possible. I want to root my wife's Nexus S 4G but she will kill me if she loses her Angry Birds progress (no, really....). I can't find a way to figure out how to save this stuff without rooting (and therefore wiping).

    There is an angry birds backup program in the market.

    I downloaded wireless tether last night, but I cannot get it to work. I'm googling for help, but if anyone has any advice, please let me know --- I can't get my laptop's wireless to see it, nor the desktop's wireless stick (netgear). Thanks.

    Is there any documentation on how to re-root after the update? I want to get back to root without wiping my SDCard LOL, so any instructions on how to gain root again would be awesome! (My bootloader is still unlocked....) Sorry if this is a noob question, but I am very new at Android...recently coming over from a Palm Pre.

    Ok, so I installed the PDAnet drivers. Then I ran the run.bat file. I go through following the onscreen instructions. But I get to the part that says "Please look at your phone. Using volume up and volume down choose the unlock option, hit power to make the selection."

    This step seems easy enough, but "unlock" isnt one of my options. The program rebooted my phone into fastboot mode and the only options are the following:

    -reboot bootloader
    -reboot
    -recovery
    -power off

    What am I doing wrong?

    EDIT...I have already applied the new update manually that came out today. Not sure if that matters.
    Hello I am have the same issue as above. I am running Windows XP 32bit version. Any insight?

    Since I wanted to root just for Roam Control and Wireless tether (no rom change or anything), will I continue to get OTA updates? I just want to make sure...
