    Hi guys, I want to remove crappy apps from my Nexus and underclock cpu which is the only reason i wanted to root.

    I followed the instructions to root without unlocking bootloader and i think its done but not sure.

    How can i check? If i am can i now install a new custom rom without losing all my settings etc?

    I know this has been said before but cannot find it.

    Cheers guys!

    Check your apps list. Do you see an app with a ninja-looking icon called "Superuser Permissions"? If not, there might be a problem. Otherwise, install something like "ShootMe" from the market and see if it works.

    There should be an application caller Terminal. Open it and you will see command prompt type window with a $ prompt.

    At the prompt type "SU" without the quotes and return. If the $ prompt changes to a # prompt then you have root. :D
