Default Not sure if I'm rooted or not

Ok so I followed the instructions in the sticky guide for rooting my phone and without there being a recovery for the hydro I was nervous as hell but I took a deep breath and jumped...lol...it the .bat file ran just fine my phone rebooted all my stuff was still there as well as superuser so I assumed my phone was rooted well I tried running TB and it gets stuck at the "asking for root permissions" or something like that so am I safe to assume my phone isn't rooted and if it's not what do I need to do to get it rooted...

Edit: I installed root checker and it said I have root access. I also have restarted my phone and I'm still getting the asking for root rights message on TB. Let me clarify I'm not new to DROIDs or rooting so for me to b scratching my head on this one is highly frustrating... Lol
