    I have a quick question. I rooted following the same method. Everything looks fine, I have my lil ninja "superuser permission" icon but once I click it, I have a black screen with "Superuser Permissions" at the top. Thats all thats visible. Any advice? TIA

    @rw4x, when I click the "Superuser Permissions" icon it lists all the apps that have been given superuser (aka root) access.

    If you have not gave permission to any programs yet there will be none listed. thats why you have black screen. As you give permission to programs they list on that black screen.

    It prompts you when you launch a program, it will request SU all you do is click allow.

    WifiTether
    TIBackup
    cachemate
    adfree
    busybox
    set cpu
    realhdmi
    drocap

    ^ are all apps that require root.
