    Am I rooted?

    I've run Droid Easy Root Scripts and Pete's Super Root tools.

    I seem to have SU access.

    I cannot uninstall the VZW bloatware, and Barnacle isn't working right.

    Am I really rooted, or did it not work right? Any help?

    Thanks in advance.

    How are you uninstalling the vzw bloat? Is it with an app like Titanium Backup, or are you going into the apps menu to do it?

    Long pressing on the app in the app drawer. I'm not getting an 'uninstall' option.

    You'll need an app like Titanium Backup to get rid of the bloat.

    Take it from the numerous posts on the subject. Deleting certain bloatware can cause problem with the phone and prevent future updates. I froze a few Verizon "bloats" and got force closes in email and messaging which both went away upon unfreezing. Use Titanium BU to freeze them instead.
    Removal of VZW Bloatware ok on Razr?

    I have TB on the phone, I just don't see an option in it to uninstall the bloats.

    So far GB blows. A ton of apps don't work, or don't work right anymore, and Barnacle is all jacked up too. Can I just go back to Froyo?

    just go to uninstall through apps in settings and see if it can be done. if not i dont think you are rooted. if you are unsure though, a great way to check is through the terminal.
