HTC Aria rooted -- carrier lockdown be damned

Told you they all fall eventually.  Noted HTC hacker Eugene373 has taken his root method for the MyTouch 3G Slide and got it working on the brand new HTC Aria.  It's not the easiest of methods, but it's one we should be used to by now -- it involves timing and monkeying with SD cards.  Now there's no reason not to love the Aria, as I'm sure the first thing on the agenda is adding support for applications from unknown sources.  Have a look and see what's involved, then get your Aria cracked open and proudly standing alongside it's bigger HTC brethren.  [AndroidSpin via Twitter via xda-developers via Android Central forums]
