    It's su, and if you get the $, the phone is rooted (not booted - if it's on it's booted).

    You should also have a superuser app, like SuperSU or Superuser. If that's missing, some apps won't run su, so that won't get elevated to root. (If you install the app, it may tell you that the binaries have to be updated, Allow it.)
