    Hi, I've installed TJ Style's recovery. It's working great. I've been following your CM7 progress, and I'm very excited. Also, I'm on MotoDev. I saw the thread requesting code, but I'm not seeing if they've released the kernel source code yet. I know there's been talk about the Ascend being similar, but no way those kernels could work for this Snapdragon processor. Any word on that code being released by Motorola? So far the Triumph isn't listing on Rom Manager. :( I am mega impressed with you and TJ for getting this far so quickly. Thanks for all the hard work! I'll be following you. Thanks again!!!

    I am one of the people asking for the source code on When it's released, you can be sure I'll be all over it. They're source packages seem very complete and I look forward to getting it.

    As for TJ's CWM, it wouldn't flash a package made by me. I have a CWM that I worked on that does. For now, however, there's no point and having people migrate to a new CWM. I think there are some users who actually have my CWM.

    The Triumph will not be listed on ROM Manager until someone submits the recovery sauce to Koush.

    I'm sure that a kernel for another Foxconn FB0 variant device would work on the Triumph. The question is, how much of it will work?

    As of right now, I'm sitting on my hands waiting for Moto to release something to us.

    Why cant you just use the drivers from the sys/bus directory?

    I don't have time to work on anything this week. It's summer session finals week, but I am going to send in the Triumph to be included in ROM Manager.

    If Koush approves my configs, he'll add the Triumph CWM port to ROM Manager.

    Let me know if things change over there on opensource.motorola!

    I should mention that this is good because we'll have an official build of CWM for the Triumph that can be found in ROM Manager.

    Was it? One of the first issues I opened on Gerrit was a patch to get MMS working with Virgin... and nobody's even commented on it.

    After dealing with lots of bug fixing on the Optimus V I've got some experience (altho mostly with a pretty straightforward MSM7k chipset). What's broken on the Triumph?

    there really isn't anything broken on the triumph, just a lot of people are experiencing different bugs. bad reception/gps, hotspot is somewhat limited, low battery life, screen issues, low quality camera etc

    I could be wrong, but I think he was wanting to know what's broken on the CM7 build, not stock.

    Isaac, this may be helpful - maybe not though...

    I'm not sure if this will help us much at all, but, I figured I'd put this out there.

    Froyo and GB ROMs for some GSM variants of the Foxconn FB400 phone (which is what the Triumph is ) can be found here:

    Kernel Source and other goodies can be found here:

    Thanks, I'll have a look through that. I'm actually using the Spice Mi-410 kernel source, but the keymapping is wrong. Since I don't have radio/3G working yet, I can't tell if the kernel is usable. I'm just going to wait for the Moto sources as it'll hopefully be easier to work with.

    I have a nice little surprise coming later today. I'm sure you will all approve. ;)


    Here's what I have working:

    - Screen rotate/orientation
    - USB mounting
    - LED and keyboard lights
    - Touchscreen with multi-touch
    - 3D graphics/hardware accelerated
    - Badass CRT monitor animation

    Check the thread. The only real source is the kernel and I'm already using it. The GB roms could be useful if I could unpack the nb0 file. I don't dare flash the thing on my own phone.

    kevmanw430 Member

    All right, thanks! I actually don't have the phone, or I'd flash it on, I'm very much considering getting one, and if CM7 works great on it, I'll pull the trigger. (Running CM7 on my Nook Color @ 1.3GHz OC, love it)

    Well, it's definitely a work-in-progress, but what I have so far runs like a beast. I'm hoping to push WIFI and audio fixes tonight.

    Wifi would be great, but is the source your using GSM? I figure, since the Triumph is CDMA, you won't get 3G running on it until Motorola releases sources. Course, you probobly already knew that. Good to hear GPU is working.

    Isaac, by beast do you mean like really fast? :) Is it faster in the menus going back and forth and stuff then the stock ROM? Would it be possible to film a short video clip so we could see your work?

    Thank you, the CM7 build your working on is leaving hope for the phone. :D

    I've moved this thread to the all-things-root sub-forum.


    ...and I'm going to link to it from the root guide...
