You know you're rooted when you visit a HTC store and try to compare your desire s with sense 4 to the ONE V...

You know when you're rooted when the first thing you type in the Play Store is 'TIT' ... and wait for the Titanium Backup suggestion to pop up.

You know your rooted when saying "I'm going to root my phone" no longer sounds a bit perverted.

Think someone came close with these already, but they're so true I simply had to duplicate:

You know that you're rooted when you wake up in the night for a pee, can't sleep and end up on Xda for thirty minutes

You know that you're rooted when you main advice to any new Q&A is a combination of downgrade, unlock, root, install 4ext recovery and then apply a custom....sorted

You know that you're rooted when you main advice to any new Q&A is see link in my signature

You know that you're rooted when you main advice to any new Q&A is look in the INDEX

You know that you're rooted when you main advice to any new Q&A is 'have you heard of google', something that's probably not say enough!

You know you're rooted when your one-year-old phone has a newer version of Android than your friend's brand new phone.

Once you switch off the app, the devices can connect again by restarting their WiFi...
