    So im wondering, are there any places other than searching the andriod market for apps if you are rooted? Or can I just simply dl regular apps from the market that will work normally even though im rooted?

    Any app will work on a rooted phone. There are certain apps that are for rooted phones only, but since you are rooted, you have no concerns.

    As rockcrawler says, there are market apps marked 'root only' that will (mostly) work for you now. All of the other apps will continue to function normally without regard to your rooted status.

    As for downloading apps outside of the market, especially anything claiming to require root, use scrutiny and caution. Now that you're rooted there is potential for malware to do some real 'damage' to your system. At least on the market, you have other user's comments and ratings to help weed out the 'bad' stuff.

    What are some highly used root-user specific apps out there? I flashed the fresh 0.6 ROM.

    The only thing i see so far is the wifi tethering app. Any other apps that I should know about?

    Let's see:

    Setcpu
    Rom manager
    Leds hack
    Root explorer
    my backup pro or titanium backup
    Cachemate and/or cachecleaner
    Wireless tether

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head. They are all really useful.
