    so i am a noob here but i would like to share this info with all Att users :) i have HTC Aria running android 2.2 non-rooted and i was downloading launchers from the app market, not sure which one allowed me to get the "UNKNOWN SOURCES" OPTION but I will share that i have downloaded AWD.LAUNCHER along with the GINGERBREAD THEME AWD and at the same time downloaded an app just called LAUNCHER and both had flaws i did not enjoy so when i went to delete them in my Applications menu i now have the option to allow non-market app to be instaled :) hope this helps ya'll

    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.

    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!

    some have got online with att tech support chat to push it manually with success if youre impatient

    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.
