    ...but when I tried to install Titanium Backup it first asked for permission (which I assume means I successfully rooted) then said it couldn't run. Is there a way to make sure I rooted? I want to backup my system before I start doing what I want like remove 'bloatware'.

    Also any suggestions on what I should do now that I'm rooted? Best programs, etc?

    if you have a terminal emulator app you can type in su and see what it says. if its permission denied then you didnt root. if it comes to a # sign then your rooted. Terminal emulator apps are free on the market

    Hit the Problems button in Titanium Backup; it needs to download an updated version of BusyBox in order to work.

    Clear your Dalvik, do a power cycle, use Set CPU to underclock when the screen's off and when your battery starts to drop.

    SetCPU in the market and you let your phone run down till it powers itself off, plug it into a wall charger and let it sit for an hour to two hours so the charge not only finishes but stabilizes, and then use normally.

    I'm unaware of any other over/underclocking apps in the market besides the ones for the X/2 and Milestone, so I might be mistaken, but SetCPU is the de-facto overclocking app (and it lets you underclock for things like screen-off, overheating, and low-battery levels so you can save juice and rock Andy a little longer. :)).

    I used the Rom managers back up utility, and it works flawlessly from the boot recovery screen.
