Default Thanks aria777 worked great !!!!

You are the man aria777. I just got my aria not to long ago due to the whole AT&T buying out Unicel stock with 2.2.2. I bumped into a few posts on other sites so I knew I was gonna have a mess of stuff to deal with before the root, like the hboot s is on and the firmware had to be downgraded to 2.1. everything went smooth your explanation was really clear step by step. now its time to flash new ROM.
