Don't know what you are doing here bro but your download contains a Trojan.

Do not download it!

I was on jellybean with my bootloader locked. I decided to root my phone and I used the guide at nexusshacks.com; never said it was for jellybean, said it was for ICS but it worked and my phone is perfectly fine. I dont see how this can be any different?

The method described here is not specifically for jellybean. I have one question though, why do you choose twrp above the cwm?

Does this require unlocking bootloader? Thanks.

Yes, you first need to unlock your bootloader
type: fastboot oem unlock
your phone should ask for permission, select yes -> Finished.

This wipes your data (factory reset)

Will this work for Nexus S 4G? Thanks.

The method works yes, but you need another recovery image I believe

Because it does not tell you to unlock the bootloader. Only how to root. A bit weird though.
Also the phone tells you that all data will be lost and I mentioned it also. Too bad, next time you'll know.

Thankyou for this guide, I've a noob question: if I've already unloked nexus s and I've already installed drivers (using wugfresh toolkit), could I use CWM (or other one) to directly flash supersu and obtain root?

EDIT: The answer is yes.
