    Hi I am new to android and have just bought my new G1 phone. I want to know how to check if my phone is rooted, I bought it second hand and am currently getting to understand different things but I need help to understand this.

  2. the easiest way to check for root is,
    Download terminal app from market and type 'su' in terminal after opening it.
    If it says access denyed-u'r not rooted
    But it if you see '#' this sign ,it means u'r rooted
