Frigid's HTC SuperTool wasn't working for me (it was just popping up and then closing down, giving me no option to input any number whatsoever), so I replaced step 4 with sentinel
How do I know whether I've successfully rooted the phone? Any tell-tale signs I should be looking for?

I tried this, but when I selected "restore" I got a message that there was nothing to restore!
Then I figured, well of course, what file could be restored when I have never created one? So instead I selected "backup" and then it went ahead, spitted out a whole series of rows of text, and finally told me "Backup completed".
So am I OK now? Is is safe to try to start flashing ROMs?
Also, I was able to clear caché (actually "wipe cache partition" - I hope this is what was intended?), but saw no mention of "Dalvik".
Is everything OK or am I in dangerous waters now?
