    Good evening.. I bought a Nexus 7 and when I got it home I rooted it and is there any way to see if I did it right? It seemed everything went right and when I go into my system on my computer it shows it not as nexus 7 but as Android Composite ADB Interface

    But when I try to install something that needs to be rooted it never installs right .. How can I tell if I rooted it right?

    Thank you in advance..

    Im trying android for the first time over my I phone and Its a whole new world..Im trying..lol

    I am curious.. if the N7 is running the current android version already.. with no overlay such a touchwiz or anything like that.. why would it need to be rooted?
    I understand wanting to get rid of manufacturer overlays.. and provider bloatware.. but am curious why you would on one like this.
