WARNING!
THIS NO LONGER WORKS FOR VERSIONS 4.8.184 and up.


It will continue to work as long as you don't mess with it or reflash your recovery if it's already working for you but for newer versions or ROM Manager it's even easier!

Alquez now has Unofficial Official Support!!!

For newer versions simply do the following to allow full functionality in ROM Manager and ROM Manager Premium:
1/ Flash Alquez's Unoffical 5.0.2.6 ClockworkMod recovery
2/ Install ROM Manage from the marketplace
3/ Click on Option 1 to flash CWM recovery in ROM Manager
4/ Choose "Upsupported Device"
5/ Choose "3.x"
6/ You're done!

Video Tutorial And Proof it works here.

First off. Some warnings!
*This generally works but you COULD possibly have to do a nandroid restore of your system so BACK up before you attempt!

*This DOES NOT allow you to flash downloadable ROM's from within Rom Manager!!! There are no downloadable roms for the Wildfire S. The one's you see will be for the HTC Aria!!!

*This does not allow you to use the experimental and other CWM Recoveries available from within Rom Manager!!!


What this does do:

*Allows you to make PROPER format Nandroid backups that will work in programs like Titanium Backup, etc (Although TBP now has support for "exotic" CWM files like CWMU 5.0.2.6.

*Allows the following features in Rom Manager:
-Reboot Into Recovery (Will boot into 5.0.2.7 though)
-Install ROM from SD Card
-Manage And Restore Backups
-Backup Current ROM (The most important as this method creates a by the book Nandroid backup unlike creating one from inside Unofficial 5.0.2.6)
-Fix Permissions
-Partition SD Card


How to achieve this trick and where it came from:

*Credit for the this trick goes to Insink72 and myself. Insink72 played around in Rom Manager and it started working for him. He managed to remember at one point he flashed the HTC Aria image so I figured out what he did and made it a confirmed process that can be replicated if instructions are followed.

What you are going to do is to install Unofficial CWM Recovery via hboot, install ROM Manager, then through ROM Manager leave some HTC Aria ghost code in place that enables some functions lost in the ported Unofficial version while keeping the majority of your recovery as Alquez's Unofficial 5.0.2.6

ROM Manager is going to think, and in a way it's right, that you actually have 5.0.2.7 installed.

Ready?

1/ Download Alquez's Unofficial ClockWorkMod Recovery 5.0.2.6
2/ Place the PG76IMG.zip file on your SD card's root folder
3/ Power down.
4/ Remove and replace battery
5/ Press Volume Down and Power at the same time to boot into hboot
6/ When it finds the PG76IMG.zip press volume up to flash it and reboot the phone.
7/ Boot to the OS and download Rom Manager from the Android Market and install it.
8/ Run ROM Manager
9/ Choose the first option "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery"


10/ From the list choose "HTC Aria"


11/ When done power down again
12/ Remove and replace battery
13/ Press Volume Down and Power to boot into Hboot
14/ Press Volume Up to AGAIN flash Unofficial 5.0.2.6 recovery
15/ Reboot phone and go into operating system (At this point look at troubleshooting below if it doesn't boot)
16/ Rename or remove the PG76IMG.zip from your SD card's root folder (I rename mine to CWMPG76IMG.zip and leave it there)
17/ Go to Rom Manager. It should say you now have 5.0.2.7 installed


That's it! You inserted the remaining code required to backup your rom from ROM Manager!

To verify it choose "Backup Current ROM then click ok. it should reboot to the ghosted bit of 5.0.2.7 code in ugly green and pink and start making a NANDROID backup followed by an auto reboot.

If you reboot into recovery it should boot to the nicely coloured 5.0.2.6

Troubleshooting:
If your OS gets stuck on the boot splash screen (not very likely but can happen):

1/ Power Down
2/ Remove the PG76IMG.zip from your SD card using a card reader and and computer or via fastboot USB in the phone
3/ Replace SD card and replace battery
4/ Volume down and Power to get to Hboot then enter recovery 5.0.2.6
5/ Wipe Data/Factory Reset
6/ Mounts and Storage/Format System
7/ Advanced/Wipe Dalvik Cache
8/ Backup and restore/Restore your last backup made before the freeze.
9/ Reinstall ClockworkMod Rom Manager from Android Market

Good to go!

Nice tut. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you have the unofficial installed, can't you just hit settings in ROM manager and manually override as an aria?

Uh, s-on is still there after unlocking. Bootloader unlock does NOT give S-OFF.
