    So I picked up an HTC Aria yesterday, my first Android. Naturally, the first thing I want to do is root it.

    I found the instructions for rooting via unrevoked and followed them to the letter. Running unrevoked goes perfectly until the end, however, where I get this error:

    Internal error: am reported error starting service

    I looked around, but haven't found anything on this (besides this).

    Any ideas?

    I am having the same problem. I followed all the instructions and when android restarts I get the internal error: am reporting error starting service as well.

    I think this happened because I changed the default install location for apps to sd card. I suspect this causes the unrevoked service (called "zyspkloit") to be installed to SD. As the SD card is unavailable immediately after boot, the service is unable to start.

    The solution that worked for me:

    1. Set your default app install location to "phone"

    2. Use "manage applications" to uninstall "zyspkloit"

    3. Re-run unrevoked

    :D

    Hmm, I'm not sure this fixed the problem for me.

    Seeing as how the Aria comes with 2.1 installed, I don't know how I could have set the default install location for apps to the SD card. There's nothing in the Settings to change it back either.

    Any other suggestions?

    I have this same problem using HTC Desire. I know its not the same phone but i thought it was appropriate. I am running 2.1 so I don't think I can change install location of apps. Maybe another version of Unrevoked? I am running 3.31 and i'm getting the: Internal errror: am reported error starting service. Anyone know anything else to try?

    Try using Unrevoked 3.21. It seems that the current 3.31 has some issues with phones running Android 2.1
