    Root question

    Is there any way for me to know for sure if I have rooted my xoom successfully? I went through the steps of rooting the xoom and thought everything worked, but when I try to run Droid Overclock I get a message that I do not have root access.

    Most likely sometime in the near future, perhaps after sd support is launched.

    Do you have Superuser in your apps? When you ran Xoom Overclocker did it get granted root access?
