Default [Q] RSD Without Wiping Data

Is there any way that we could remove a line or delete something out the script so that it doesn't clear data when running sbf. Friend needs help to unroot and get the kitkat update without wiping data. They are already on 9.30.1, just need to lose root and update. Thanks and have a great day.

Yes, basically RSD Lite only wipes the user data with this line in the XML:
Code:
Select Code
<step operation="erase" partition="userdata" />
If you have it in your file, just delete it and the user data in this partition should stay untouched. But you never know, so better have a backup anyway.
