    I want to root my aria for the live wallpaper and I might use unrevoked 3. Is it permanent? Is there a way to go back to Htc Sense? Plz help!!

    Sorry no help, but do you also loose all tha things you downloaded and bought of tha market?

    Rooting alone will not cause you to lose Sense UI, also, everything you have downloaded, including paid apps, will still show up in the "downloads" tab in the market.

    I was able to root my aria by using another computer. I downloaded the disk that works from hotfile. I burned three disks from a torrent site and they all had errors!

    so what is the point of doing this if i don't want to put any non-fully functioning ROMs on my aria? (seems like there area ll sorts of issues still open with all the "popular" ones)

    The 2 only things i really want to do are to remove protected at&t apps and install any other 3rd party app i want.

    You pretty much answered your own question. The point of rooting is to have control over your phone. Be it to delete apps locked to your phone or to load different ROMs.

    Obviously experimenting with ROMs isn't for everyone. Though the CM6 ROMs are indeed fully functional outside of the FM Radio.

    All Unrevoked does is give you control over your phone, it doesn't load up any ROMs or anything. Honestly if you're perfectly content with your phone the way it is then simply let it be. There are workarounds for loading 3rd party apps without root. Each person needs to decide if rooting is for them. If you do decide to root then cool, if not then cool.

    Also if anyone needs help with any root methods or with the Liberated or CM6 ROMs feel free to drop into the IRC channel and ask questions.

    so the only way to get rid of those att apps is to root it?
    how do i uninstall them after i root?
    will they reinstall when att finally releases 2.2? or will rooting it cause their 2.2 update not to work? yes, i'm a total noob when it comes to phones. i have put CFW on my psp before and mess around with pc's a lot, but never phones.

    will everything else still work the same?

    then i will be able to install 3rd party apps too?.... (trying to kill 2 birds with one stone here instead of just using that sideloading program to get my 3rd party apps, but not being able to delete protected apps)

    Yeah, the only way to get rid of those apps is to root.

    To load 3rd party apps you'll need to be rooted then you'll need to change a setting using adb.

    Start android, enable usb debugging. Stay in Android.

    adb remount
    adb pull /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db settings.db
    echo update secure set value = 1 where name = 'install_non_market_apps';|sqlite3 settings.db
    adb push settings.db /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
    adb reboot

    I got those instructions from attn1:
    xda-developers - View Single Post - I'm rooted but

    Again, the easiest/best way to do all this is to download the Ubuntu LiveCD as all the tools you'll need will be in it.

    yeah, i downloaded that earlier today (remotely from work desktop...to my laptop at home).

    will burn it once i get home to pop in a cd.

    i have no idea what those above instructions mean, hopefully i can figure it out.

    one other question: can i install apps to my sd card, or does that only work in a custom 2.2 ROM?

    The best way to do it is(if you have some kind of webmail like gmail or hotmail or something) e-mail yourself the links to the instructions above and also to the IRC channel. Once you're booted into the LiveCD open your e-mail then open the links back up. If you have questions during the process someone in the IRC channel will be able to help you out.

    using ubuntu now.

    i had to hook up an ethernet cable to download the unrevoked thing.

    how the hell do you get wireless to work? i tried to install a driver and it just me restart...which since i am just "trying" ubuntu, it didn't actually install anything

    so i rooted my aria.

    i am now on the screen that has options:

    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition
    install zip from sdcard
    partitions menu

    should i do anything in these?

    how do i get rid of the att apps and how do i go about installing other apps i want?

    i don't want to install any ROMs, i'll just wait for att to release the official one.


    Unfortunately, the only way you can get rid of the AT&T apps is by "rooting" your phone and installing a custom "ROM".

    These custom ROM's are available here: ROM: Liberated_Aria (beta) - xda-developers

    If you read the description, you will see that there are some ROMs that are untouched except for the fact that they removed the AT&T Bloatware.

    So, your next question should be, where do I go from here?

    And you'll be good to go. :)
