How to Root the HTC Aria on At&T

Rooting the HTC Aria on AT&T is made trivial by the program you can download at

So far the only good reason I have found to root your HTC Aria is so that you can enable wifi tethering, but that requires a few more steps which you can read about in my next post.

In addition to rooting your phone, the unrevoked application adds a custom recovery image to your phone (Clockworkmod recovery – )

This open source recovery system allows you to backup your phone to SD-card (nandroid backup), and load other ROM’s.
