One possible way to check if Gingerbreak worked is use a an adb shell and type su, you should get a # prompt.

Root check tools usually check if/system partitions can be written to confirm you are rooted, which won't happen even if you root your device, as /system resides in a CRAMFS (read only partition) partition on the default firmware from the manufacturer.

Depending on what you need root for, you can also use a custom firmware for your tablet that will have root thru su binary and Superuser app to control the access and a fully writable system partition in ext3/ext4...
