Default The Triumph is Officially staying on 2.2

Hey all,

Motorola just updated their ICS update list and the Triumph is listed this time (Thank god!). Thats the good news, the bad new is that it is listed as "Will Remain on 2.2". Slightly frustrating, but I'm sure that with the amazing dev support we have on this site, that we will still be able to "update" to whatever the latest OS is. Keep up the good work Devs!

So long Motorola! I am flabbergasted at the fact that this device is staying on 2.2. I think that there could be a few court cases against Moto about their lack of updates. (The Droid 3 and X2 are staying on 2.3...)

I'm moving to the Evo V 4G. I can't believe that years ago I adored my PEBL and RAZR to come back years later to the Triumph.

Well we already confirmed that the triumph won't be getting any update about 3-4 days ago from sprint. but with this upgrade list it put the nail, screws, and bolts in the coffin. we spent 300 dollars on a phone thinking it was high end and we full ourselves. should we ever trust another prepaid phone company stating that they have a high end phone. but then never support it. because if you notice u have the triumph which was considered a high end phone but no upgrade insight, boostmobile's marquee and warp no upgrade insight, metropcs esteem, 4g connect no upgrade insight. and crickets the huawei mercury no upgrade insight. sure boost and virgin coming out with new phones but that means you have to spend another 300 and probably no support for them.

Honestly even an update to gingerbread wouldnt have affected me much since I'd still rather use a custom rom like CM9 even if the camera still doesnt work.

Now if VM supported their phone and did regular updates on the android OS then maybe guys like g60madman and ziggy and so many others wouldn't need to make better ROMs with more up to date android OS.Yes it would be nice to have the best and fastest all the time in the phone world but if we got it from the phone company's then maybe people won't be inspired to make the phone better cause it will always be better.The phone company's lack of updates led to the inspiration of the ROM developers on here and many other sites to go and MAKE the phones better THEMSELVES.If VM had kept the MT up to date with gingerbread then ICS would you have ever come to this site to see if you could make/get the phone to do better?That's all you have to ask.While I do agree with you in part about your beef with VM and others like them I feel that VM's lack was picked up by the great ROM developers on here and other sites.

I am all for the ability to install custom ROMS,but to pay 300 dollars to have to give up some of the advertised functions is pathetic, so glad i ditched this phone when i did,seeing now it is a 50.00 dollar phone in my opinion.happy to see VM is getting the HTC Evo,even if you have no 4G service it will be 100 times better then the Truimph.

lolz though isn't that what they said when the Triumph was coming out? I'm starting to loose faith that VM can bring a good phone. I really hope I'm wrong about the EVO V. Would really like to buy one, but I'm scared that it will just be a half-assed version of another phone.

interesting tidbit I found on motorola's blog. Apparently they won't update some devices because it won't "improve them." I'm sure many of their users would disagree and that statment is frankly rather cocky.

so they mean to tell us with all the problems we complain about with the triumph a simple patch or upgrade won't fix them even if its to 2.3. so what there saying is the phone they are not touching is a piece of shit right out the box. so basically every new phone that comes out where all taking a big gamble on the phone not knowing if the phone comes with many problems and they won't update because they don't want to waste there time on it if they think the update won't be helpful. im sorry but even though i love androids iphones is the way to go if you want regular updates and fixes, well mainly because apple doesn't have alot of phones to worry about.

while I cant afford it right now so I will be off line phone wise for approximately 6 months i'm going to move onto the galaxy nexus from Google (all the updates as soon as they go live& unlocked boot-loader) with a sim from straight talk mobile...VM went right from super value to "lets treat our customers like shit" and the fact they never would admit the triumphs gps was less than functional is a big give away of their character as a company.

I think phone manufacturers should be obligated to release all needed for independent developers to further along the progress of a cellphone. If phone manufacturers/carriers decide to not update, patches, upgrade or anything of the nature they should be bound by law to release the codes, kernels what ever needed for a dev. to work on the phone. hell if they're not going to do it why shouldn't they just release everything with a big ****ing warning sign saying once applied don't come crying to us .

If it's so expensive to release an update, why don't they just release all of the codes so we can do it ourselves? Then bam, we'd have an updated ROM and it didn't cost them anything and everyone would be happy.

This is the way it's always been since my parents brought home the shiny new ODYSSEY 2000 game system for us for Christmas so many years ago. (1974-75?) THIS IS GREAT we thought until we actually tried it and figured out it was just PONG with crappy plastic sheets you put on the TV screen and held in place with static cling.

Next year was an incremental imrovement with another product that promised to be light years ahead but again a disappointment.

I came across a cover to a Playstation (one) game title I owned, "Formula One" by Psygnosis. 1996. One of the better PS1 racing titles, funny tho the cover boasted "real cinematic film quality graphics" or something like that. Joke! Pixels about 1/4" square they meant. the next year's title probably the same lie.

Is the Triumph with 2.2 really that bad? Mine isn't. It's been trouble free since day 1 except for the battery door and wonky touch screen. (sometimes I try to touch the same object TEN times and can only select the one above or below it! As if it hates me and wants to frustrate me!)

You only want 2.3 or 2.4 or whatever because of the promise it's going to be that much better.

And almost certainly is not, once you own it, going to be "all that".

I'm going to be 50 years old next month and in many ways I'm still a punk but have inevitably gained some of that age borne wisdom which says this one is fine for its purpose and I don't need the next big thing every year. Maybe every 3 years and I will research it well so I won't get burned.

The bigger message is if you want to keep up with the Jones' in technology you better have money to throw away because you'll be doing a lot of that.

Would be kind of a dumb decision and wouldn't make sense business wise.
Problem with Android is, being open source AND extremely profitable for carriers and manufacturers, they no longer feel like updating all of their phones beyond a very short time span. The issue with lack of updates (whether seen through the eyes of the owner or the manufacturer) will ALWAYS happen. It sucks and it's unfortunate, but it's just the way Android is these days. Looks like the Triumph still has great dev. support so at least be happy for that vs. all those Motos with locked bootloaders.

I'm really quite happy with the performance of my MT, and even the GPS seems to be performing as its supposed to. It's been locking most of the time fairly quickly, and I never really had a problem with anything else except the internal memory filling up for no apparent reason. I do find it annoying we are being disrespected over and over again with OS updates SO far behind initial releases. The only Androids I have that have received more than 1 update is my G1 and my Nexus S (Did the Nexus get more than 1? When I received it, it already had 2.2, then received 2.3). Don't even mention Samsung Behold II. That being said, as much as I want 4G and ICS, I will hold off on upgrading, save my money till later. I don't want to pay $10 extra a month for what I think is very little more.

You only want 2.3 or 2.4 or whatever because of the promise it's going to be that much better.
There are some things they should update whether it means 2.3 or not. The touch sensitivity you mention is one. The CM7 based ROMs are much better about that, and the UI feels much smoother. Bluetooth on the stock ROM is another, it won't stay connected idle for long.

Gingerbread brings some perceived improvements like "better" battery life, and a generally better experience. But some are real measurable things. Talk on 2.3 allows video chat, it is not available stock (have to use Skype or similar), for example. Also Qualcomm has released newer graphics drivers for the Adreno GPU that make significant improvements in 3D performance. That would be nice to have.

Additionally as time goes on, newer apps will stop working with 2.2 before they stop with 2.3. The new Firefox only supports 2.2 and above. How would you feel if you still had a 2.1 phone your manufacturer just didn't feel like updating. That's how we will feel soon on 2.2.

Motorola is saying if they won't upgrade a device, it is because they feel it won't improve it. With ICS, maybe there is some truth to it, though devices like the new One V use the same exact CPU, GPU, and RAM but come with ICS from the start. But there is no way a proper Gingerbread update wouldn't improve the Triumph.

Out of the box, the Triumph isn't a bad phone. But it can definitely be made better with a thoughtful update from the manufacturer. This thing is less than a year old, it's not unreasonable to expect improvements. It would be nice if they cared about delivering that. They don't owe us updates, but we don't owe them repeat business either.

This doesn't mean it will stay on 2.2 there is a chance it will get 2.3.

That is basically Moto's final list. So it means that it will... There may be a minuscule chance it will get an update...

It looks like this may be beginning:

There are more devices on ICS (21% of devices) than there are on Froyo (14%). I can't think of any new apps that are 2.3+ only, but have to think that will start being the case. If you design an app for the 80% case, that now means 2.3 or greater.

I don't think so, the article said first to get the $100 you must send them your old phone, then farther in the ad it says the $100 can only be used for one of the phones they released during the announcement, I don't remember what they were but another user said it 3 new razor phones

And I read an article by google when ics first came out and they were basically talking trash directly to the faces of every mobile phone manufacturer and carrier saying they were not catering to them and carrying different versions of the same apps for different versions of android when most devices now can run atleast ics, at the time i believe it was 1.8% of devices had ICS and 80-85% Could have ICS, I believe they went on to say they would no longer be doing this and after all the customers complain to their carriers or manufacturers maybe then they would learn lol




Plus i dont think the list at the top of this page has anything to do with the recent annoucement, the list in the top link has the very first motorola razor getting updates lol, also the list from the top is dated 2 months ago and the article posted about jellybean is was only 4 days ago lol

This article is old and for ICS. The new one that is currently stickied is for JB and our device is still listed. I believe there is still some hope for and update. We just have to be patient.

I don't think $100 makes up for this $300 piece of garbage they sold me. If they aren't giving us Jellybean I want all the triumph's device files released.

I understand. I'm just saying in general to anyone who sees this and might think that we are no longer getting jellybean. It hasn't been officially announced whether or not we are getting jellybean so keep those fingers crossed.

You're looking at this from the wrong angle.

300 up front for a snapdragon S2 512ram 4.1 inch 5megapixel camera smartphone where you get unlimited data every month for as little as 25$

the best part is ABSOLUTELY NO PERSON ON THIS PLANET can force you to stick with the phone becuase you are NOT on a contract. THATS the real value here.

go buy a mid-high range phone OFF CONTRACT at a carrier and tell me if you can get it for under 300.

the answer is no.

I was HAPPY with my triumph on 2.3 and 2.2(custom roms), it was FAST, smooth, it worked great. did everything I asked of it.

and in the year that I've owned it I saved hundreds of dollars over going with a contract. money that stays in MY pocket that can pay for gas, road trips, meals, amusement parks, things that keep ME entertained. not to some company that has me under contract.


now I have the EVO V 4G and all I really have to say is that android 4.0 doesnt have NEARLY the app compatability that 2.3 has... apps that worked on the triumph break and force close on ICS. and it will be this way for awhile...



Sure, it sucks that Motorola releases phones with no OS updates. But car manufacturers release vehicles and they don't replace your engine every year and you don't complain. You buy a laptop and Dell or HP doesnt give you the next windows for FREE or even make it an option and your ok with that?

but god forbid you buy a cheap NICE phone off contract and save hundreds by paying prepaid per month and they can't give you a software update EVEN while 2.3 and 4.0 roms exist by the community.

Last time I made a post like this on another account, more than half the replies agreed with me but the moderator banned me. I stopped really caring for android central becuase of that so If you don't like what I have to say, ban me again.


edit* you know whats really funny? when the triumph launched, it was right after the LG Optimus V (which was almost flawless for its time)

and the triumps main problems were that some phones shipped with a green splotch on the camera and sometimes the home buttons stopped responding until you flipped from portrait to landscape.

the EVO V ships with a BROKEN RADIO. you activate it and you cannot get texts, send texts, miss alot of calls, and other stuff DOES NOT EVEN WORK until you unlock it and flash the Evo 3D firmware and radio to it. and the process for that is NOT as simple as the triumph. you have to open the phone and touch a wire to a certain spot and short it out for a second and its all very precarious and not fun. but thats the price for getting this nice of a phone off contract for so cheap (229.99) and now the evo works great.

Your opinion is your opinion,i was willing to pay for a contract smartphone where the phone and service is reliable,What good is paying 25 dollars a month for garbage,VM is great if you want a basic phone but fail with smartphones.

I should have been clearer. I didn't mean to suggest the announcement was still valid. I know it is old and that they have created some JB hope. Rather that the "downside" of Froyo, asked about in the thread initially, is becoming more real. And that is app irrelevance. There are now more devices on ICS than on Froyo.

If Moto does not update the Triumph, it will become "irrelevant" soon due to the OS. If you are making a new application, and targeting 80% of devices, right now that means 2.3 and up.

Do you mean now? Or July 2011? You can buy lots of nice phones for $300 off-contract now. T-Mobile has the dual-core SII and S Blaze at and under 3 bills. The One V is under that at VMUSA, as is the Evo V.

You are right that Moto doesn't owe anyone an upgrade. But it is reasonable to expect them to fix software issues, which the Triumph has a few of. Like the slow GPS, the fact that bluetooth is worthless in a car because it disconnects after ~10 minutes, and there are some others. And if they want repeat customers, they ought to give upgrades.

Confused 2.2 and Triumph

This is what they told me when I asked them about it...


Hi, my name is Andrew. How may I help you?
[02:34:46 PM] Me: two questions.
[02:35:01 PM] Me: is the triumph going to be updated to ICS or Jelly Bean?
[02:36:55 PM] Andrew: I will do my best to help you with this.
[02:37:45 PM] Andrew: This phone will remain in 2.2 any further information will be communicated to you. Here i the link of the ICS https://forums.motorola.com/pages/00add97d6c
[02:38:30 PM] Me: the other question is about the system update, when I click on it , it says packet not found.
[02:39:15 PM] Andrew: That is because there's no updates for this phone available at the is time.
[02:40:34 PM] Me: ok, so I signed up for the rebate of $100 bucks if my phone is not upgraded to JB. When can I take advantage of that then?
[02:41:44 PM] Andrew: This is only with Verizon customers. I will send this with Motorola software team for review and see if they have this process for your phone.
[02:43:18 PM] Me: It has the Triumph listed and selectable as your phone, I did not read anywhere that it was for Verizon only.
No response after that, lol

No response after that, lol
Yea lol seems like that Guy really had no idea, was that from Vm or Motorola??, cause if it was vm I could see y he wouldn't know, or if It was vm I could deff see them telling u u can't do it just to try and get u to stay with vm lol

Cause so far vm hasent said it was getting any new Motorola phones so most likely if u want the $100 you loose your triumph and ur carrier

It's preparation for one of the possible lame excuses.

1. Oh, JB will not run on your device, you need at least X ram.
2. We weren't clear, you should upgrade only from ICS to JB, not from old Froyo.
3. Ooops, that was ment to VZ customers only.
4. Sorry, but Triumph was released before 2011, sold in 2011 - yes, but built way before that.
5. You misuderstood, $100 credit applies only if you stay on the contract, and buy phone on the contract (read: VZ, AT&T)
6. Motorola is not obligated to blah blah blah. Please love us and keep buying our phones

I also contacted Motorola and here is what transpired:

Moto: Hi. How may I help you?
Bob : I have a question.
Moto: I'll do my best here to help you.
Bob : Is the triumph going to be updated to Jelly Bean?
Moto: Let me check on my resources. Please hold on.
Bob : thanks
Moto: No problem.
Moto: This phone will remain on Android 2.2, Bob.
Bob : ok, so I signed up for the rebate of $100 if my phone is not upgraded to JB. When can I take advantage of that?
Moto: Please hold on.
Moto: Please go to this page, https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/ci/documents/detail/2/motorola-jelly-bean-rebate_en-US
Bob : I have been to that site and it has the Triumph listed as an eligible phone,
Moto: Okay, just sign up there, Bob.
Bob : I have signed up. But the way I read the page it seems that the $100 will be a rebate toward a new phone. However, Virgin mobile does not have any Motorola phones except for the triumph.
Moto: It says there that, "If we don't upgrade you, we'll send you instructions on how to trade in your phone for a select new Motorola smartphone and get $100 back on your purchase."
Moto: Please wait for the instructions.
Bob : Yes, that is what I just wrote. My question is how will I be able to receive a rebate for a phone that virgin mobile does not have. Or are you saying that I will be forced to change to a different carrier?
Moto: The program doesn't indicate specific models and carriers, Bob.
Moto: Motorola will be the one to send you the instructions.
Moto: Please wait for it and we'll take it from there.
Bob : Not trying to be difficult... just a little confused because Virgin Mobile only has one Motorola phone.
Moto: I understand. Please check out the notation there on the lower part of the screen.
Moto: It says, "Official program details will be found at this site at a future date. $100 provided in the form of a Gift Card, carrier credit or other cash equivalent at Motorola's sole discretion."
Bob : Great, thanks for clearing that up.
Moto: You're welcome.
Moto: Anything else?
Bob : No, Thanks for the information.

It cracks me up tho that they made the announcement, and then later now that people are actually asking questions there like ummmmm, maybe, ummmm, were not sure yet, especially the fact that the last guy told you on the site that motorola may change things at anytime lol, wouldnt that be false advertizement lol they say one thing, then a little while later say things may change at any given time, then change things lol

edit* you know whats really funny? when the triumph launched, it was right after the LG Optimus V (which was almost flawless for its time)

and the triumps main problems were that some phones shipped with a green splotch on the camera and sometimes the home buttons stopped responding until you flipped from portrait to landscape.

the EVO V ships with a BROKEN RADIO. you activate it and you cannot get texts, send texts, miss alot of calls, and other stuff DOES NOT EVEN WORK until you unlock it and flash the Evo 3D firmware and radio to it. and the process for that is NOT as simple as the triumph. you have to open the phone and touch a wire to a certain spot and short it out for a second and its all very precarious and not fun. but thats the price for getting this nice of a phone off contract for so cheap (229.99) and now the evo works great.
You're not shorting anything out, what you're actually doing is taking a pull down resistor low, sends the phone into engineering mode. And for those that are used to the Triumph and have never unlocked a htc phone the wire trick is actually easier than trying to make a working Gold Card like I had to for the Wildfire S. As far as motorola and the Triumph read my post here : http://androidforums.com/motorola-triumph/619397-three-dead-triumphs-vm.html#post4977103

We don't need the Motomonkeys to upgrade our phone anyway. We have a dedicated groups of devs on our side. Thanks G60 and all the others. LONG LIVE THE TRIUMPH.
