My own thinking is along these lines. If Motorola does release a Jelly Bean upgrade for the Triumph, I expect that it will not be long after that that I see unofficial, pre-rooted, hacker-created ROMs that are better than the stock offering from Motorola. I will wait for one of those to become stable, and go with it.

I have, at this point, no significant Android experience outside of my Triumph. I've seen, in particular, how much the experience is improved by being able to root it, and how much it is further enhanced by the unofficial ROMs. I have no idea what benefits to expect by upgrading from Ginger Bread to Jelly Bean, but I very much doubt that they are worth giving up the benefits of rooting and using an unofficial ROM. I think I'll wait until I can upgrade to Jelly Bean without giving up these other benefits.
