    If I had to assume you "click" the application that runs the script. I've used this, its golden folks. Again, thanks Shabby.

    i've rooted my evo and flashed many mods, roms, kernals, bootloaders. This is my very first day with the Nexus so i'm still learning this device and want to be sure I don't screw it up.

    Thanks for the help.

    will this remove all of your data? will i be able to recover it using google's backup, where it automatically restores all of your apps?

    shabby... it keeps telling me the device is not found. Use volume up and down and power to select an unlock option.

    Tell me... should USB storage be turned on or off.... I've rooted hundreds of times, virgin on the Nexus S 4G.

    ***I just figured it out*** Thanks for your good work ShabbyPenguin!

    Hi Guys, I just my Nexus S, and i cannot believe the improvement that this phone is over the Epic (I must admit i was skeptic at first, but im glad i made the switch).

    Question i hope you guys can answer for me....If i were to use this one-click root, will i be able to flash custom roms using this method?

    Thanks in advance guys!

    when its all said and done you will have root and cwm, so you can then flash whatever you want within your hearts content :)

    That is likely a driver issue. Sounds like this script is supposed to install pdanet for you but if that's failing for some reason you might be able to overcome the problem by installing it on your PC yourself.

    there is instructions actually.. the readme included.. no the script doesnt install drivers due to i dont know if you have 64 bit or 32 bit... you need to install the drivers yourself.

    why are you trying to flash this in recovery? stock recovery doesnt let you flash anything. and if you have clockworkmod recovery and you are trying to flash this you might want to just go set the phone down and walk away
