No, it will not be installed. You will have to manually download and install it. If you install it, uninstall it leaving the drivers (or you could just select drivers only for installation at the beginning of the installation).

Just ignore any steps regarding HTC Sync. You do NOT need to install it for any reason. If you have it installed, uninstall it. If you don't have "HTC Driver Installer" listed in your add/remove programs list, then you should install this: http://downloads.unrevoked.com/HTCDriver3.0.0.007.exe and that's it.

I dunno what instructions you are following, but you should not be using Unrevoked.

To flash it, put your phone into fastboot mode (access from HBOOT menu), connect USB cable, then issue

Code:
fastboot flash recovery C:\path\to\recovery_liberty_5.0.2.8.img

is there another way to do this?? lol. its really frustrating. ive had this same struggle when i first rooted my phone and i cant get the cmd on my windows to flash the .img. im sure im doing something wrong though.

and idk what the fastboot.exe is for because whenever i click on it, it opens then instantly closes. i have SDK installed too.

EDIT: this might help u. i decided to go with CM7. i want that rom on this phone.

Hangs in Recovery mode
Hi,

I finally decided to get S-OFF for my Aria using the revolutionary method and i was able to get the S-OFF. I also opted to install the CWM that came along.
Now i can boot into the recovery mode and i can see the list of actions that can be performed (Reboot Now, Wipe data/Factory Reset, etc.) but when i select any of them the phone hangs and nothing comes up , and i can go the main menu of the recovery by pressing menu/back or power button..
because of this i dont have the SU permission yet (as i cannot install the su.zip nor nandroid restore cm7 nor install a new SU'd ROM)
I tried the cwm 5.0.2.3 version as well, but the same outcome..

It's because you are trying to use the power button to select an entry, but that doesn't work in CWM. You need to press the trackball button to select an entry.

Pressing the power button just makes the menu disappear or reappear -- not sure why it does that actually.

Damn.. using Sensation as my primary device really spoilt me. I need to show more love to the lady Aria.
I thought it was something to do with the SD and formatting it. Have to wait for another 5 more min to try that...

EDIT: that worked.. thanks drumist for the reply..
