Yes of course, this is a root exploit for 2.20 users pretty much.
But keep in mind if you flash the 2.20 ruu you will have the newer HBoot that cant flash kernels, radios etc in recovery so using fastboot will be needed.
Current phone: Google Nexus 4 w/ LTE - Paranoid Android + Franco w/ART
Current tablet: 2013 Nexus 7 32GB - ParanoidAndroid
Desktop: elementaryOS Luna + Windows 8.1 for gaming..

Awaiting surgery: S-OFF! AT&T HTC One X - CarbonROM (My builds)

Want Band 4(T-Mobile in USA, check Band 4 carriers here) LTE on your Nexus 4? Flash my AIO N4 LTE Enabler zip!

Default Quick question on Root and Unlock

Will this process to Root and Unlock, Recovery Flash erase any data on the phone or deos that come later when you Flash a New ROM?

The root itself is a different manner than 1.85 but the whole process after should be the same. This is a method to get you to unlock the BL.

Hey, is it normal for the exploit to close when asking to hit any key to get the unlock token? It just closes as soon as I hit enter, before I get a chance to copy and paste the token.

Haha, good point. Uploaded a new version to the same URL that waits for you to confirm you want to quit. Thanks.
