    Unhappy Am I rooted?????

    yesterday i decided to do the "how to install: 2.1 the easy way" and got through Step 6. When i booted my phone it suddenly started getting horrible freezes and wouldn't go to my home screen or take calls. some error android.phone.blah blah. so i did a hard reset (and lost everything . i do show superuser in the app list but i click on it and it's just a black screen? how do i tell if i'm rooted and continue with the rest of the instructions. if i am that means i wont be able to get ota updates so i NEED to finish. hellllllppppppppp me!! lol

    download a terminal app and type su then hit enter...It will let you know if you have superuser privilege..

    thanks for helping me backnblack. i downloaded a terminal and typed su then hit execute. a popup came up that says:
    SU Request
    Process #15208 (app_10065:app_10065)/system/bin/sh -
    wants to run: /system/bin/sh as root:root

    then it has two buttons: allow - deny.

    should i click allow? im just scared to do anything that might hurt my phone.
