if your bootloader is locked then yes you will loose everything on USB storage,if the bootloader is already unlocked you will not loose any data,you don't need to flash a rom after rooting the device as it will not wipe the system.

Hi, I installed the drivers on my computer and am currently running the run.bat file. It's saying my device is not found. I have USB Debugging on, and USB storage is on. Any ideas?

Turn off the usb storage,you just need usb debugging enabled if you turned on usb storage it will not work

The tool includes the latest cwm img,but if you want to replace it with another one you can do,just make sure you rename it to same name of the img in the root tool folder,but make sure that the recovery you will use is compatible with the nexus s

After I execute run.bat the phone is rooted. I reboot using ClockWorkMod Recovery. Then, when I run sticky.bat and follow the instructions I get the following:

shell@android:/ $ su
su
shell@android:/ # rm /etc/installrecovery.sh
rm /etc/installrecovery.sh
rm failed for /etc/installrecovery.sh, No such file or directory

What should I be doing? Please help.

The phone should booted normally when running the sticky.bat (On the home screen),there is nothing to worry about just Complete the instructions normally one of the two scripts will fail since the name of the file differ in gingerbread and ics,try this rm /etc/install-recovery.sh and continue the instruction it should work and clockworkmod recovery would stick.

Thanks for your reply. I used a FixRecovery.zip file from another thread and flashed it after executing run.bat again. Now I am able to boot into ClockWorkMod.

Ok I got it to stick by using Root Explorer to mount it as read/write first then ran the sticky.bat. ICS is the rm /etc/install-recovery.sh command.
