Copied from captin throwback 8) If "$" appears, you do not have root access. Type "su" to access root. "$" should change to a "#". NOTE: If it doesn't change (though I don't know why it wouldn't), go to Market (signing into Google will be required), and download "Root Checker". Open Root Checker, and you should be prompted to allow root access. If successful, type "su" at the adb prompt again, and you should have root.
