Need help reviving motorola triumph!

    Please I need help fixing my motorola triumph, hopefully there is a solution and it is not bricked. I was installing an ICS Port 4.0 MUIU rom after installing CWM when this happened. I had successfully installed CWM, Speed demon kernel, and MIUI using a youtube tutorial. I then decided to install a new version of miui. I entered download mode and connected the USB to the computer and opened the image folder. When I tried to install the file the computer told me I didn't have enough memory so I deleted all of the files from the image folder thinking they were unimportant and later on realizing the contrary. I tried finding the deleted files on the computer and relocating them to the phone but only found 2 or 3 of them. I have the 2.2.2 android version with the 7 bar codes total. I do not have access to a computer at the moment but tomorrow I will. Is there any way I can copy the files from another triumph with the same version and get my phone working again? I would like to have stock rom back. And if not, can some one please post the directions with links to the files needed? I need to fix my phone because I don't have the extra money to have it fixed for me. I would like to apologize for the novel and thank anyone that is willing to help me and for taking time from your busy schedule to do so. I also forgot to mention that my screen will not turn on AT ALL. I cannot access CWM, download mode or anything :(

    Hey Lolo. Do not use that download from that link. It seems you have older version of the Triumph with seven barcode. It seems, Austrie has deleted the older version of recovery partition. If you put those files, you will only get blank screen on startup. It will however boot up your phone but you will not be able to see boot logo and polling text.

    If that happens, please hang on. Let me look for the older version of recovery partition files. I will get back to you as soon as I find them. If everything went well, then let me know.

    What do you mean by malfunctioned? Is it not detecting your phone at all? Can the phone still go to download mode with polling text?

    "USB device not recognized... the USb connected has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it" The phone shows up as USB Root Hub (4 ports) and under that there are 3 "unused ports" and only one "Unknown Device" When i click the unknown device it says the hardware is not connected to the device (code 45). The phone cannot go into download mode with polling text. i am using windows if that info is of any help. There are 7 bar codes total (one all the way on top of the battery area that reads FD1M1... and then under MOTOROLA there are 6)

    did you try rebooting the pc, im also running windows 7 and from time to time the triumph just wont show up at all, a quick reboot of the pc and all is good again, for me atleast

    im running an old windows xp program, dont think rebooting will do much but its worth a try and switching computers (another old windows xp on this one too) didnt do anything. I think its not recognizing because i am not able to enter download mode and i dont get polling text. I also tried leaving the battery out for a few minutes but nothing happened when i plugged it back in

    If it boots to CWM, just pull your SD card, put it into the adapter and then put into a computer that has a card reader (yours or a friends) and download the ROM.zip to the root of the SD card. Put the Micro SD card back into your phone and flash the ROM. Remember to grab GAPPS before flashing the new ROM.

    The phone will not boot into anything since I deleted everything on the image folder, it will not go into download mode (no polling text), there are no signs of the phone working. The computer will not recognize the phone because it says it has malfunctioned. It shows up as unknown drive not as MOBILE and does not allow me to open it as unknown drive. The LED light does not turn on when plugging it in to a computer or charger and the screen will not turn on at all. I am going to try to get the phone to be recognized as MOBILE and will try to work from there. If any one has more suggestions please post them, any suggestion is appreciated

    You might have corrupted the MOBILE drive and it becomes not useable. Try formatting that drive as FAT file system. If that doesn't work, your drive is dead. If you have access to Linux, connect the phone to it with download mode. Even if the screen is not on, just press Power + Vol. Down. See if a lot of drives showed up. If you don't have Linux PC, then I'm sorry buddy. I can't help you anymore as I can't see what is actually happening. My final guess is your MOBILE partition has been corrupted and it's unuseable now.

    i will try to format the drive as a FAT file but if that doesnt work then i will have to buy a new phone. Although it is a bit weird the phone is not showing up as MOBILE because it has before even after the files in image were deleted. I appreciate all the help you have given me and thank you for taking the time to do so. Is there anyway that i can ask for a replacement from VM without insurance and with an expired warranty?

    I'm on my phone so I can't really link ya to them, but there's atleast one thread called help I deleted he image folder or something, and if I recall the same issues ur having were what the op had happening

    Also I've seen, read and even helped a few people before that had the same issues and thought they bricked the phone then for what seemed to be no reason it began to work again

    So I'd say keep at it, this phone is normally labeled as unbrickable, I like to say its just hard to brick it lol

    There's a great community here so u know ull have help or atleast people trying to help so its worth it to keep trying


    Also if u happened to buy the phone recently and all else failed you could call Vm and tell them that it wont work, I'd leave out the rooting and custom rom cause they don't like that, but you may be able to get a replacement

    I'll start looking for the other threads and will try to get more help, since i wont be able to get a new one in a while. My phone's warranty expired less than a months ago so i doubt VM will provide with a replacement. Thank you for the advice, and i too have heard this phone is practically unbrickable

    nyioo7 Well-Known Member

    Yes. This phone is practically unbrickable. Only way to brick this phone is to corrupt the partition and corrupt the internal drive sectors. Which seems to be the case for you. That's why, you need Linux PC to test this. Windows PC can't do this.

    The thread about someone wiping the MOBILE drive, Image folder is in second post. Or rather, the second post link where there's download is made because of that thread. So, if you want more help, find a way to access to Linux PC and let me know. You might just have to format the partition and it'll be all better again.

    Ive also read a post by someone who tried for days to fix there phone after they thought they bricked it, they ended up putting in a drawer and just buying a new one, then one day they decided to try the bricked one again before they threw it away and it worked perfectly like it should have lol sometime our phones have attitudes lol

    Also once I get off work and back to my PC ill post it here just in case and for info purposes but I have a picture of what the image folder should look like with cwm installed and cm7, file names and sizes are visable, if u find the threads I was talking about you'll probly see it

    Hey Lolo. So, I just woke up and couldn't sit still seeing as your problem is not being able to resolved. So, I formatted my own MOBILE drive to reproduce your problem. But, I cannot seem to make my Windows 7 not detect my phone. It would always show up as a drive I formatted. I don't know how you formatted it to make it undetectable. There might be a slightest chance of reviving your drive. Here's the steps I did. I posted it in other thread just a few seconds ago. So, I'm just gonna copy paste it here.

    Maybe download & burn an install CD for a recent Linux distro like Ubuntu & run it as a live CD (runs the OS in memory) if you are really in need of Linux to fix the phone. I can't remember if you still have access to all the peripherals tho-

    Hey Lolo, have you tried using a friend's PC that has Windows 7? That may recognize the USB.
