Default rooting tonight, is one click method good to use, and best ics rom without issues

I am rooting my nexus s 4g tonight as I have caved and got tired of all of googles unanswered issues with ics... Wanting to make sure the one click root method works good and is ok to use and will it fully root to where I can flash a custom rom with odin? also wondering which ics rom is the best one out right now that doesn't have any issues such as lag, wifi, radio, calls, mms and sms

the nexus s4g one click root works flawlessly. theres a vid on you tube that walks you through it. dont quote me but i believe its by qb king. yes you can flash custom roms with it. if google ever releases the ics update theres also a one click unroot that works flawlessly for the nexus s 4g

I wouldnt recommend one click root. I have a way of rooting without even the need to wipe your data just as ocr would

pm for more info
