    Back in the 2.0.1 days, I rooted my droid, using the "rootyourdroid.com" guide. I never did anything with it, never loaded any roms (planed on it, just never got around to it)

    When 2.1 came out, I did the OTA. After the OTA, I still have the "super user" ninja icon.

    Now I want to jump on the 2.2 bandwagon and I need root. But do I still have root? how can I tell?

    if you did the OTA you almost certainly lost root. Download terminal emulator by Jack Palvich from the market. Open it up and type SU if a # symbol doesnt show up then you are not rooted
