    Install and launch a terminal emulator from the Market. Type 'su'. If the prompt changes from a '$' to a '#' you're rooted.

    Or ... download and install any app that requires root. Fire it up and it will tell you if there's an error or not. I recommend anyone who roots to install Titanium Backup IMMEDIATELY. That app will tell you if you have root or not. Then you can start doing backups of apps and their associated data. I also highly recommend paying for the 'PRO' version of that app. Worth it's weight in gold. :cool:

    Every rom and theme will have instructions in the first op on how to install. If you still are confused ask and someone will guide you through.
