    I think I rooted my X but I dont see any difference. Is there a way to tell I did it correctly?

    in the list of app icons you should see one called "super user" that looks like a ninja wearing all black.. if thats not there.. u aren't rooted.

    go to the market place and search "root" youll see a lot of cool apps you can use, also you might wanna look into themes and different roms too

    roms also include a custom kernel. theres no way of doing this yet with the DX. i coulda put out a partial ROM with all that stuff removed but i thought most users who went to 2.2 knew how to do that already lol

    i bought a used X, and it has the ninja dude on it. I want to un install this this because I dont know what to do with it or break my phone. Can i just go to my settings and un install this thing and go back to normal. Any advice please. Thanks for your time.

    nah the easiest way would be to just wait til the 2.2 OTA comes and let that remove root.
