    I was wondering what are the uses of the Super User App? Because I'm pretty darn sure I have a rooted droid but I've never seen that signature app in my list. I can use terminal emulator, and I've gotten SU access in ADB, no to mention My overclock widget works when I change the cpu. Any thoughts? I think I used some "Update.zip" to root my droid.

    Thanks

    superuser app doesnt do anything. It just populates a list of all the programs on your phone that are running root permissions..

    Yes. If you can run SU in adb or emulator just fine then you are rooted...

    Yes and you'll be fine without it.
