I mean they tend to make a loudish creaking noise. It's pretty impossible for anyone to tell if there's a problem given that you gave next to no info.

It's very unlikely it's broken though.

Yeah especially if it's a cheaper guitar, adjusting the truss rod can make lots of noise

Assuming you didn't torque it 3 times around with a power drill it shouldn't be broken

Wood creaking is an expected noise when turning the truss rod. Unless you see damage on the neck or fretboard, or the rod now turns freely, you should be fine.

i don't think the truss rod is broken or damaged for that matter. get it to a guitar tech and get it sorted out. no biggie.

BTW why were you trying to adjust the truss rod? were you trying some alternative tuning's?

truss rods are not just adjusted for tuning and gauge changes and need periotic adjustment.

I've tortured truss rods without ever breaking one....so I doubt it's broken. You may have popped a wood joint somewhere that you can't see yet....but probably no biggie either. Were you able to straighten the neck? If so, can you loosen the truss rod and see the neck curving more...if so nothing is broke.
