AT&T actually sent you an update that enabled the Unknown Sources option, it was nothing that you did or downloaded. This was publicized last week.

Default still can't download non-market apps....

Saw the announcement and been checking my applications setting but still no 'Allow from unknown source' check box. Announcement implied it would be by type of phone so just figured didn't send out aria ota yet. Any advice? Thanks!

If you have received the Aria update that allows Unknown Sources, can you post the version it shows? Not sure if the Kernel changes, but it may be needed to. I can not run the AT&T Software Update. Tech support told me to reload the Froyo 2.2 update for it to work. I can not tell from the HTC site if it is a newer version then I had already updated to.

Your version may be helpful.

You now need to wait to receive the silent OTA update that will enable "Unknown Sources". Simply installing the upgrade does not do it, it simply puts your phone in a state that can receive the OTA that enables the option.

Some have reported that powering the phone off and then on after installing the upgrade will trigger the OTA.
