XDA-Developers forum  member “Borky_16” has released a handy tool to root and to install ClockworkMod recovery on all Nexus S models. In this post I will show you the procedure of using this awesome tool to root and install ClockworkMod recover on your Nexus S phone.

This single click root tool is designed for all kinds of Nexus S models (including, i9020A, I9020T and I9023) and uses ClockworkMod (recovery), as found with in ROM Manager. The package that comes with this tool contains Windows drivers for both 32bit Windows operating systems.

The script attempts to unlock the boot-loader, so the data and SD card is wiped clean.
