    My apologies if this has been posted already, but I am relatively a total noob with Android, rooting and all the fun details associated with it, but am learning fast... But is there ANY way to root my OTA froyo aria(AT&T) or any way to rollback to 2.1 and root from there??

    Short answer is No! You could rollback to 2.1, but it does not roll back the HBOOT loader, so you still won't be able to root your phone. You my friend are stuck until a new rootable exploit is discovered.

    Do we know that anyone is actively trying to come up with a root method?

    I really hope that someone is trying to crack this. I would have been better off not updating, the phone was better before.
