I first want to thank everyone at UnrEVOked for what they've done. I'm posting this because there aren't any really detailed instructions. Its an easy enough root, but I know I've been there before and even the simplest things can be tough if things aren't laid out. So here's a step by step tutorial.

Due to some bugs, Unrevoked 3.2 was taken down shortly after being released, but the updated version is now LIVE! So obviously we're going to bring you a video tutorial on how to do it! Thanks to the guys at Unrevoked for giving us this simple solution to rooting the HTC Aria.

◄●REQUIRED DOWNLOADS●►

◄●How to Install HBOOT Drivers (Windows Users ONLY)●►

If you're using Windows, you're going to have to install the HBOOT drivers first. You can follow this video tutorial:

and follow along with these written instructions provided by the Unrevoked team:
  1. Download the unrEVOked modified USB driver and expand it somewhere you will remember.
  2. Turn off your phone, then boot it into the HBOOT menu by holding power and volume down.
  3. On your phone, you will have to select HBOOT USB at that menu by pressing volume down four times, then power. Wait until the screen flashes through an “SD Checking” message before pressing buttons; otherwise, the phone will ignore keypresses.
  4. Connect the phone to your Windows machine with a USB cable and wait for the phone to say HBOOT USB PLUG on screen.
  5. Open Device Manager.
  6. Click Start, then right click on Computer, then click Properties, then click Device Manager.
  7. Under Other devices, you should now see the Android 1.0 device.
  8. Right click on Android 1.0 and click Update Driver Software:
  9. Click on Browse my computer for driver software.
  10. Click on Browse and select the Android USB Driver folder on on your computer, click ok, then click next.
  11. You should get a status bar indicating that the driver is installing. If you get any warnings, just click Ok.
  12. Your driver should install.
  13. Click Close and make sure Android Bootloader Interface is listed under Android Phone.

◄●Instructions●►
  1. Make sure you downloaded Unrevoked3 for your OS.
  2. If you're on Windows, make sure you "uninstall HTC Sync or any other program that might talk to the phone over USB (doubletwist, etc). They will cause problems" (Unrevoked.com).
  3. Plug your phone into your computer with USB.
  4. Drag down from the notification bar on your phone and select "Charge Only" and "Remember this"
  5. Make sure your phone has USB Debugging turned on by going to Menu>>Settings>>Applications>>Development and checking USB debugging.
  6. Run the Reflash application that you downloaded.
  7. Unrevoked will run its processes. Follow the few instructions it gives and thats it!

You're now rooted!

HTC Sync will load the necessary ADB drivers onto your computer, but so long as you do not let the process run while you are trying to run unrEVOked3, it will NOT interfere. Knowing this would have saved me quite a lot of time, so hopefully someone else reads this and they can salvage their sanity

Also, if you're stuck on "Waiting for Root", go ahead and restart your Android while its connected to the USB. It took me one reboot for the root to go into effect, and right after that, unrEVOked3 finished.

I rooted my girlfriend's Aria with this and I see SuperUser Permissions (as you would with a root) but when I go to Android SDK and type "adb shell" I get a $ back instead of a 2. I also typed su and got back a permissions denied. I am also unable to do "adb remount" due to permissions. Is there any way around this?

Thanks
-Mike

You need to give the adb shell SuperUser permission, too. Load the SuperUser app and then make a adb shell connection while the SuperUser screen is up. Then when you type su at the $ prompt, the SuperUser app will give you the Allow/Deny prompt.

Regards,

Tom

Question
I just tried this and can't seem to get it to work. Can anybody help me out? I'm sure that I've done something wrong. I finally got unrEVOked to recognize my Aria, however when I clicked "Ok" (to root it when the message popped up) it said "Failed to push recovery. Terminating." What did I forget to do??
