    I updated my Nexus 5 to the Android L developer preview yesterday and now I want to root it. Since its already unlocked(required to flash the L preview), will rooting my phone wipe away all my data once again?

    Usally not. It depends on the method used.

    If you find a method you would like, post back and we can double check for you.

    Ok. I'll be rooting shortly and will provide the feedback.
    One more question. Will I be able to get the official OTA updates after rooting?
