    If there is an app in your app drawer called "Superuser" you're more than likely rooted :)

    Ok problem number 1! Lol I've got the ROM but I can't figure out how to flash it, I had a lot of trouble getting drivers for my phone but I'm pretty sure I got em all, and I got allyRR which is root restore and it said put the rom on my sd, and hook up the usb, then run allyrr and when I did it picked up my ally, then the phone shut off and its like nothing ever happened it turned back on and left me dumbstruck...I need help guys
