Default (GUIDE) How To S-Off and ROOT Aria 2.2.2

Thanks to AlphaRev Team we can now S-Off the Aria(Removes Security Flag)

**This is for any Aria either shipped with or upgraded to 2.2.2 Firmware**

For an alternative guide check out post #84 by zervic in THIS Thread

Requirements you must have:
*All Drivers installed on Windows PC (See Aria Superthread)

*Aria S/W v2.2.2 (either from the Update RUU or Factory Shipped)
***WARNING*** Installing the Aria Update RUU will format the phone. Any info not backed up will be lost. SD Card is not affected
---If you have ClockworkMod installed you can make a Nandroid backup which can be restored later
*HBOOT 1.02 (installs with the Update RUU)


Difficulty Level= Medium/Some experience required

How To S-Off
-If you have s/w version 2.1 or Custom ROM follow installation instructions for Un-Rooting in the Aria Superthread

if needed: Download ATT Aria Shipping ROM 2.2.2
1- Make sure USB Debugging is checked in Applications/Development
2- Go to Revolutionary Website and click "Download For Windows". a form will pop up which we will fill out later
3- Save file to PC and keep web page open
4- Plug in phone with data cable then run downloaded program Alpharevx.exe

5- Take note of where it reads "Enter Beta Key [Serial: your personal serial ]
5- On AlphaRev website fill in the short form with your info including the alphanumeric serial given from the program (case sensative)
6- Click "Generate Key" and copy the beta key into the AlphaRev.exe program (case sensative) and press Enter

Congrats!! you should now have S-Off. If fail, check the alphanumeric serial and key for accuracy
__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _________

Install Clockwork Recovery
Download CWM 2.5.0.1 OR CWM 2.5.1.7 Off-Mode(no annoying recovery screen while charging)
Download Android Flasher

1- Extract Clockwork Recovery.zip to folder
2- Connect Phone with data cable then Run Android Flasher
3- Check box "Recovery" and click Begin
4- Navigate to Clockwork Recovery folder extracted earlier and select "Recovery.img" click Open
Once complete the phone will boot into recovery
If you made a Nandroid backup before running AlphaRevX it can now be restored

NOTE: you may also install CWM using ADB command, but this is much quicker

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _______

How To Install Superuser Permissions
Three options to aquire this:
1- Restore your Nandroid backup from CWM Recovery
2- Install a Custom ROM which includes SU
3- Follow the steps below to add SU to the Stock 2.2.2 ROM
Newer SU 3.0.6 Signed
-Older SU 2.3.6.1
-Copy SU_2361.zip to SD Card
-Boot into CWM Recovery
-Select Install Zip file from SD
-Select Choose Zip File
-Select SU-2.3.6.1-ef-signed.zip and confirm install
-Reboot and you now have SU in the App Drawer

Enjoy!! and please support the Dev's that make this possible

Just wanted to point out that this step is OPTIONAL. This will allow you to acquire root with your default, stock ROM. However, if you intend to install a custom ROM (Cyanogenmod, Liberated, etc.) then you should just skip this step entirely and go straight to installing the ROM of your choice.

Finally, a well done step by step writeup, that pulls all of the pieces together along with the necessary links.

Well done.

Thank you for the comments guys!!

@drumist thanks for pointing that out. this was explained in the guide i made on other forums. fixed it here now

@cHarley04 the download for 2.2 RUU is linked in the Aria Superthread, which is linked in the first step on how to S-Off
maybe i will include the direct link for simplicity

I was just about to do this and went to alpharevs sight and the windows download link is replaced with, "windows version is under review, sorry". Noooo! I'm off today, kids and wife are asleep and my little little aria almost saw the future. Oh well, next weekend hopefully that puppys up and running. I know there's a Linux download link but I like sticking to what I always use, sucky windows.

Yeah I would have no idea how to run a virtual linux instance so I could do this... hopefully AlphaRev gets the windows version cleared soon, so I can root and use wifi hotspot.

Vm player is easy to set up a virtual machine with and you can get it free from vmware.
