Well, the caution symbol is normal. That is an indication that the kernel has been messed with. Have you tried running a root check app? There are plenty on the market.

I am assuming that you followed the instructions found here:

[KERNEL] [GUIDE] Root Your Stratosphere! :-) - RootzWiki

??

If so, you should be on your way. If not, then do what it says, they are pretty straightforward. If you don't think so, then check out the "simplified" version here:

[How-To][Guide]Rooting the Stratosphere - Simplified - RootzWiki

Good Luck.

Any questions after following either of those guides? Let us know.

Have you tried to install any root-only apps?
