    theres a root checker app in the market thats free. download it and run it, it will tell you. also, if you are rooted, you will have a "superuser" app/icon in your app list.

    Okay, I'm rooted now.
    How do I get the webtop hack?

    root checker says that I'm rooted with SU access, but that screen grabber says I dont even though I gave it SU access.
    Maybe its just the App or is my phone still not rooted?

    Any rooted application from the Market such as Terminal Emulator, Titanium Backup, Wireless Tethering, etc. will prompt you for accepting root access to continue when starting the application for the first time. Once you accept this and it allows you to continue onward then you have root/Superuser access (it will prompt you if obtaining root access was denied).

    You can't always rely on the Superuser application in your app list. There has been incidences where users have had the application but true root access was not obtained (something failed in the rooting process). So this isn't always a guarantee that you have root because you see the application.

    I'm rooted now. I did the Terminal Access trick, had the $ typed su # came up.
    I assume that's root. Also Titanium Backup free works just fine.
