    What is the easiest way to check and see if my phone is ROOTED?
    I went through the process but not sure it worked. I dont get the
    ninja icon with a sword so not sure it worked.

    Thanks

    The little ninja icon is pretty definitive of whether or not you have root. Another way to tell, though at this point I don't know why you would, is typing su in Terminal Emulator. If it comes up with an Allow or Deny box you're rooted. But you're not.

    Ninja icon = Rooted.

    No ninja icon = Not rooted.

    Yes, the ninja icon is pretty definitive for rooting.

    Once the phone is rooted, the ninja icon(if you press it) will give you a list of the commands you've allowed that override the system defaults.

    That being said, if you don't have a ninja you aren't very ninja. :p

    You could also try using a terminal program and type su and see if you get the # returned.
    I did not have the ninja show up the first time I rooted.
