I am merely a beneficiary of the hard work that others have done at Unrevoked & XDA, but from what I've read, the short answer seems to be no.

There were posts about early attempts to do so, but I haven't seen any recent reports of attempts or success. Check in with those two sites periodically and maybe something new will develop.

Don't install the update. I'm rooted and am currently sporting Android 2.3.3. If you already have updated, then you're out of luck... ...for the moment. I'm sure someone will hack it soon but this firmware update is specifically designed to debunk root.

I wish I didn't install the update. The phone was better before it. I have to restart every 2 days to keep it running smoothly.

If it is not functioning properly (reboots, freezing, etc) and it is a new purchase; perhaps you could exchange it for a replacement? Perhaps the replacement will not yet be flashed to 2.2.

I wish I could return it, but it is too late.

Thanks anyway though.

Default I have rooted HTC Aria 2.2!

1) Set up ADB by following the instructional video at YouTube - ‪ANDROID SDK Tools (How-To Install)‬‏

2) Gain S-Off by following the instructions at Gain S-Off On HTC Desire, Aria and Wildfire

3) Format your SD Card

4) Download Goldcard Helper from the Android Market onto your phone

5) Enter the Reverse CID at Free HTC goldcard generator | RevSkills and follow the instructions to generate a goldcard

6) Save the Goldcard image to your Desktop

7) Go to How To downgrade HTC Hero ROM GoldCard method | Tutorials | blog.up-link.ro and follow the instructions STARTING from "Download the HxD Hex Editor from here and install it to your computer." (you don't need an asapter, you can just use the mount and unmount features) to "Once HTC Sync is installed and your phone is plugged in, pull down the notification bar on the phone and select HTC Sync. Make sure it connects to HTC Sync on the computer."

8) Download the original RUU at AT&T ROM Update v 1.25.502.12 _ 09.14.2010.exe - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download and run it while the phone is connected to HTC Sync

9) Now you should have Android 2.1 and can root following the instructions at How To: Root the HTC Aria (Unrevoked Method) Updated 04.12.11 | TheUnlockr
