    Silly question, but what is the difference between this ROM and MTDEV besides more customization? And does that mean once this ROM has camera then the MTDEV will have it too or are you going to merge the two?

    Good question. The difference between this and MTDEV is MTDEV is mostly based on code from TickerGuy, IssacJ, Whyzor and Mantera. There is a lot of the code I am not sure needs to be there specially the camera code TickerGuy added in for CM7. So what this is, is straight stock code from Cyanogen. I will slowly be adding in our changes to fix parts of the hardware (wifi, camera, hdmi, etc) but the key is to start from the beginning and cross the t's and dot the i's so I know what is there needs to be there. That way if something is not working I can blame myself :) after it's said and done this will replace MTDEV.

    It seems you are not a Developer anymore, Your more so a company who provides people with the things they really want. Your work is top notch, Thank you spending your days to give people what they really wanted from the Triumph.

    G60, you are amazing! I would've thought that this thread would have more replies, but oh well. It's our dirty little secret LOL. Thank you so much for putting your time and effort into the Triumph! Without you, we still would be stuck in the dog days.

    The thread has no replies only because when we see new reply we just hope that it's from g60 and update is camera related. I think most of the users read this thread religiously. :)

    If you look at the number of views, you will see that you're right!

    That, and g60 has said he's kinda in the set up phase of things. I think most people are reading that as "He's working on it"

    Wait until he updates the title, then you'll see the post flood.

    I've been checking this thread constantly in anticipation of a camera fix for CM9. Every time someone posts I get all excited :rolleyes: Went back to CM7 until the update comes in.

    G60 man...you are really bangin out these updates...i can't help but to thank you every time i post...so thanks again...and i had a bit of q&a about building android...like when building can you focus on just a certain area say the camera, or do you have to build as a whole with all the device files...and i have a dell laptop with an I7 processor and windows 7...would it be capable of running what i need to get good builds...or do i need more power lol...i have some exp with linux code and would like to put this time i spend stalking on the forums to use working on the camera and hdmi...mainly camera

    Thank you :) So when you build the code you can focus on specific parts of the code, like say the camera.apk or frameworks_base

    Howto: Speed up building - CyanogenMod Wiki

    The catch with the camerahal code is I don't think you can build it separately as it relies on the device files (don't quote me on that). The I7 you have should be pretty decent to build with as long as you are booting from disk and not using a virtual machine.

    The key with building is all you need is CPU and lots of it. RAM doesn't not help once you hit 8GB. Also SSD disk does not help in anyway either so it's a waste of money IMHO, unless you want to boot up fast. CPU will make you shine every single time. With my current RIG I am sitting at about 31 minutes for CM9 and 12 minutes for CM7. There was a lot of changes in the code from 7 to 9 so it takes a longer to build.

    Just an FYI my RIG is a Dell T5400 dual quad core Xeon 3.16ghz / 8GB of RAM which I purchased from Ebay for $253.00. It originally shipped with a (1) 2.0hz Xeon. When I had enough money from donations from cm7-g60style I bought another 2.0ghz. When I had more money from donation and selling some stuff off I bought (2) 3.16ghz and shipped my 2.0ghz off to chairshot and dsmryder since we all have the same systems thank to donations!

    Also I upgraded to 16GB of RAM (Fathers Day gift from my Wife) but found out it didn't help so I sent 4GB to chairshot and 4gb to dsmryder. The only difference in our RIG's is I have the 3.16ghz and they have the 2.0ghz. The time difference for charishot building cm9 in 36 minutes to my 31 minutes. Not a huge leap based on the fact I spent $150 for the new procs.

    Anyways if you have more questions please let me know if I can be of assistance. You are always welcome to PM.

    When you're done with this G60, you should send a nice letter to the fine folks at Moto letting them know how thankful you are to them for helping you update their phone. LOL. When G60 succeeds at this Moto should hire him to do their updates for them. Thanks once again for your dedication to our cause. :D:D

    Holy f**Knuggets g60! Like previously stated you and MTDEVs have been really pumping these ROMs out! I've sinced moved on the the T-Mobile GS3, which does have a great development community but not one as responsive, helpful, and sharing as the community behind this ol' phone. I know that XDA is a hardcore developer site but they aren't really helpful when you are just starting out with a device. This community has always been there for questions and comments and has helped me out plenty of times. Just wanted to say thank you, again for sticking with this Triumph. MTDEV has to be one of the HARDEST working development teams out there on Android, keep it up.

    There has been some weirdness with the version CM Team has in the code. Of course even after installing from the market it keeps acting up asking for permissions over and over again, I think some one posted on this just can't remember the fix :p

    Thanks, all our MTDEV ROM's have donate links on the main pages. All proceed's go towards helping MTDEV with workstations, and dev phones, and website costs. We just got done getting dev phones for dsmryder, and chairshot. I also picked up a special phone that while is not activated has 3g working on it. I am hoping I can script back using the hidden partitions and possible fix BSydz GB Stock ROM, and also maybe find a solution using CM7/CM9/CM10 to script back to the hidden partition for data so we don't need to edit the code. But that will be for another day :)

    G60 you really are a madman (Mad genius is more like it :) )
    Thanks for everything you do. As long as this great team of devs are working on the triumph, I have no plans of leaving for another phone.

    I cannot wait for a fully functioning ICS on the triumph!
    MTDEV for the WIN!!! :smokingsomb:

    I'm sorry, I have to ask.
    I'm on Eastern time here, you're on Mountain time, which makes your reply is posted 3:08 AM. When do you sleep?
