    I've followed the HOW TO: Root Your Desire Easily (Method #2) guide and the app reported 'Done' - the phone boots back up fine etc but how do I know it it actually worked ?

    Not trying any customs roms yet but I have tried to install Titanium backup and that failed after I gave it super-user permissions.

    Is the a setting on the on the HBOOT menu that tells me I'm rooted ?

    You should have a Super User icon like the one in the picture if you are rooted.

    Yeh I have that. So that means it's successfully rooted ?

    Any idea why Titanium backup won't work ? do I need a custom Rom ?

    Error Msg

    "Sorry, I could not aquire root priveledges .... Please verify that your ROM is rooted and includes BusyBox, and try again"

    I'm guessing I need to be more than just rooted ?

    No should work.

    test download mybackup and see when you open it if it prompts to allow you super user functions also. if it does, the root is fine.

    Can you open Titanium? If you can click on the problems tab then let it install BusyBox then it should work.

    Thanks Steve (and everyone) - I followed your instructions and it worked :)

    Hit the 'Problems ?' button, it downloaded some magic and now all is good !

    Just need to find some more apps to utilize the rooting with, just too much of a chicken to install a custom ROM yet lol

    Try ShootMe you can take screen shots of your loverly phone. You need root to use it, it's free on the Market. You just shake it to take it :D
