    I used the SuperOneClick method to Root and it said it worked. I have a SuperUser Pirate icon. When I try to to a restore from Bootstrap it says it can't find files even though when I backed up it said Success!

    So how do I know if my X is rooted?

    Did you press bootstrap recovery before you hit reboot recovery?

    I was looking for this thread as I recalled you had this issue too. I couln't find it though so thanks. It worked! Why is that Recovery button on the app anyway? Now on to figure out theming!

    Quickest way to tell if you are rooted:

    Have terminal emulator installed (you should anyway, it's the most useful app ever created)

    Text prompt will be a "$" sign

    Type "su"

    Text prompt will change to a "#" sign if you are rooted. If not you are not rooted.

    Then this confirms it (although I suspected as much), I am rooted! Although me with a terminal emulator = dangerous. I should probably uninstall it now before I totally hose the device.
