I think this ROM must be a replacement for Stock by default. If you just bought Triumph jump here, flash this ROM and enjoy. I mean everything works from the box.
I can't agree more with this part of Izzard's post- if I were to pick my favorite Froyo Rom for the MT, U9000 is definitely it, hands down. Just so many cool improvements in CM7 tho...

You devs are the unsung heroes that make the MT worth keeping.

It will be shame if this ROM dies somewhere in the forums.
It must be improved, pinned and recommended to every new comers as an option to fix all your problems (log files, gps, hdmi, battery life, bloatware removal and etc).

Say what you want but we don't have 100% working ROM right now. Every ROM is awesome in it's own way, yet it has some annoying bugs that I believe can be fixed.
This is not a demand, I'm sorry if my words came out a bit rush, this is just raising more awareness that we do have a golden egg-ROM with big potential to replace Stock completely (including Activate button), and never ever look back under any circumstances. We should not go back to stock to sell this phone on eBay, we should put this ROM and brag that we fixed what Motorola couldn't so the new buyers won't surf around to find how the hell phone with GPS can't lock for 40 minutes.

No matter how much I like CM7, and CM9 and even Sharp - this is the closest to perfection. I flash all of them all the time to help Devs to find bugs, play for a week, but I always come back to this one if I'm traveling, if I'm expecting a phone call, if I'm showing something to my friends on the big screen, if I watch HD movie... And same thing applies to GB Rom, the one with broken 3G. As far as I know it is the smoothest and the closest we have gotten to 2.3. The second 3G will be fixed I'm buying 4 more Triumph and using them for the rest of my life.

My hopes is CM9 will be the deal changer in time including HDMI. But you are correct this is the closets to perfect ROM we have. And yes the 2.3 GB rocks but I have yet to get data to work on it It's sad after all this time we don't have a fully functional ROM other than Froyo and even more sad is that Moto seems to have given us the final nail in or coffin

I really have to say I am pretty frustrated with this phone at this point and can see why so many people have left. But no matter what, I am not giving up! So screw you Moto and screw you VM! I am going to keep on, keeping on!!!!

g60,
do you mind shifting a bit MTDEV minds and forces toward this ROM?
If you guys polish this thing to perfection, and release under back_to_stock_better_everything edition, you may start charging Virgin Mobile and Moto for fixing their fails.

Thank you. Like I said, I understood what you were saying, but I am just basically up to my neck in this, and it is not easy. I just wanted you and others to understand the situation that I am in. I do appreciate your support and everybody elses. But, I am doing all I can. I'm not angry or anything like that, I am very straight forward and have no issues with conflict. Basically I have been working to get GB on our phone since I started, I understand everybody's pain, that is why I did the Triumph Experiment. I never really intended on becoming a dev, it just happened. I was planning on having this as a stock replacement, I had activation worked in before I even released it but took it out cause I hadn't got it quite right. The voicemail fix is the only thing that is actually stopping this from becoming the Stock replacement, cause I'm sure I can get activation working. I need to get my kernel skills a little more honed and figure out a few more things before I can make this in to a complete package. I am also working on a fix for 3G for GB, if we can get that we can take any one of the X6 variant ROMs except Sharp 2.3.5 and have them on our phone, talk about choices.

I appreciate everything you have done in this community and I feel the same way you do, I just can't do it yet. Me and G60 have been going back and forth with some ideas for quite a while on how to get the 3G fixed but it is a major pain. Hopefully we will get it working soon. Thanks again for your support and raising awareness about this ROM.

I cannot get the MTU fix to work on this ROM. I am typing the following commands from a terminal emulator:

Code:
su
[allow SuperUser to grant root access]
ifconfig rmnet0 mtu 1500
Then I get this error:

Code:
error: SIOCSIFMTU (Invalid argument)
I check the MTU by performing this command:

Code:
cat /sys/class/net/rmnet0/mtu
and it's still showing 1472. The MTU fix worked fine on the Sharp ROM while I was using it... Any ideas?

Edit: I should add that I'm not using the custom kernel (yet) - I'm using the Kernel supplied with the ROM in the first post.

Your edit hit the nail on the head. The custom kernels unlock the MTU to be able to set it to 1500, you can set it to what ever you want under 1472 on the original kernel. I have to redo the whole kernel cause my folder got mangled while I was trying to put my Ver8 kernel together. I'll spend some time tonight getting the kernel started. For now the custom kernel is in the second post.

Ah ok, thanks for the clarification BSydz. I'm updating to custom kernel now then. I was holding off using the custom kernel while I tested the ROM out to see if I had any issues first and, if not, I was going to upgrade. The only issues I seem to have with the U9000 & Sharp ROMs so far are that Bluetooth keeps disconnecting and reconnecting randomly while listening to music / podcasts over my Bluetooth headphones and I have also noticed that I'm having a lot of issues with my data. The data issues may be VM related, but I'm still troubleshooting that (and hoping the MTU has something to do with it).

So I just thought I would post my experience with the U9000 and Sharp ROMs because I ended up having to go back to CM7.2.

I was really loving both the Sharp and U9000 ROM's because, at first, it seemed everything just seemed to work the way it should. I missed stuff from CM7 & CM9 but I really needed the phone to be stable and I really need GPS and Bluetooth to work because I use them a lot, especially when exercising (running / biking). So I started off with the Sharp ROM and I noticed that Bluetooth would intermittently disconnect and reconnect (GPS was most likely active during these disconnects so I don't know if it's somehow related). That was pretty annoying but then the phone kept spontaneously rebooting during my runs or when using Google Navigation - it only seemed to reboot when GPS was active. I figured it might have something to do with the launcher so I moved to the U9000 ROM since I preferred the stock launcher anyway. Unfortunately I had the same exact issues with the U9000 ROM. I got frustrated because I was losing my workouts (GPS data) when the phone would reboot, so to really narrow down that it was the ROM and not another app I installed the U9000 ROM from scratch and only installed Endomondo Pro and nothing else. Two runs in a row the phone rebooted about an hour or so into the run. When I installed the ROM I not only did a factory reset / wipe cache / wipe davlik, but I also did a Format Cache / Format Data / Format System before installing the U9000 ROM, so definitely nothing was left behind. Of course I verified the MD5's matched after moving it to the SD Card and the zip files tested okay. On both ROM's I was using the newest kernels listed in the threads and not the kernels in the first posts.

Just thought I should put this out there as I expect that I use GPS much more than the average person.

I have an issue using Incredicontrol. I've installed the U9000 custom kernel and my settings for overclock & underclock don't seem to be sticking. I change the governor to smartassv2 and min frequency to 61400 but every now and then, it reverts back to min 245760 and ondemand. Any ideas? o.O

Hey bsydz, why does the updater-scripr mount system using the emmc parameter then using the mtd parametric?

There is an issue with some apps not having the settings stick, I have used no-frills with out issue. This was my first kernel so there are a few issues that I want to address before I release another one and put it in the ROM.

I use android kitchen to build and sign my ROMs and to extract boot images cause it is easy and that is one of the first tools I used when I started out, I can almost just type in numbers with out looking at the screen now. I believe it does that for the X6 permissions, it always worked so I left it alone. I think I have seen it in other ROMs also, but I may be mistaken cause I have used more X6 ROMs than Triumph ROMs on my phone. I'll look in to it though, now that I have a better understanding of everything.

After using CM7 for a week I came running back to U9000 :-). While I applaud Chairshots efforts to improve GPS on CM7, the Sharp and U9000 ROM's are leaps and bounds better in terms of GPS, not only in lock times but in accuracy as well. Battery drain on the Froyo ROM's is also noticeably better but I think that's already been well established so nothing new there.

Right now I'm sticking with the kernel packaged with the ROM in post #1 as I don't need over/underclocking nor tethering. I only have one run in so far on this new install but it didn't crash, although when it was crashing before it was intermittent. I'm looking forward to any new kernels. Any chance that the kernel could have been the cause of the crashing when GPS is running for extended periods? It always seemed to happen right around the one hour mark, although not always - one time it crashed about 3 mins in and I had just rebooted the phone shortly before the run.

Can't imagine it will last long- have you rebooted the phone during that time? I've noticed some account-related changes take place with a reboot.

Default New custom kernel

What's up guys, I just finished building a new kernel for the Sharp ROM and got it put together for the U9000 ROM. I need this thing thoroughly tested. I have it running on my dev phone, just need some feedback. I updated everything from the touchscreen drivers to the wimax drivers and tons of stuff in between. Let me know how everything is working, or not working.

U9000 Custom Kernel Test 6.zip

I'll definitely be giving this a try, I just wanted to test on the kernel packaged with the ROM in the first post a little further. So far I've had no bluetooth disconnects or GPS reboots but I've only been able to squeeze in 2 one-hour runs since I've had it on there and haven't had GPS and bluetooth active at the same time. If it would stop raining here I could put it to the test :-)

Okay, so I've got 5 or 6 one-hour runs with the ver2 original kernel (7/15/12) and it the phone has not rebooted yet. One time while using Bluetooth and GPS simultaneously Bluetooth disconnected and reconnected twice in a 3 minute period. This past week I haven't used BT and GPS simultaneously as much as I usually do but it was definitely worse in the "try3" kernel. I'm installing the "Test 6" kernel tonight and I will report back. I may take the CM9 test build that g60 dropped today for a spin too.

I've had the "Test 6" kernel installed for about 24 hours now and noticed a few issues. Shortly after installing the new kernel (wiped cache & davlik cache) I was listening to a podcast over Bluetooth (GPS off) and it disconnected and reconnected. That only happened once so far though, but I've never had that happen with the ver2 kernel unless GPS was on and I have a lot of hours of listening to music / podcasts over Bluetooth with the ver2 kernel.

Shortly after that I turned on GPS to see how quickly it would lock and to see how many sat's it would grab (with Bluetooth off) and it initially locked to two sat's but the SNR levels in GPS Test weren't changing and were just static. I left it on for a few minutes and nothing changed - no new sat's and the SNR levels were stuck. I closed GPS Test and ate dinner and did some other stuff for a couple of hours and came back and tried again and GPS was working normally, but I didn't leave it on for more than a minute or so that time.

Also, I've noticed that it keeps dropping cell / data signal (twice so far) and I have to toggle airplane mode to get them to come back.

Nope, I was running the "ver2" kernel for a week with no issues at all. I didn't install the entire ROM from scratch - I just installed the test kernel as there is no need to do a complete re-install when changing kernels.

Default New test kernel.

Ok guys, I went a lil too far with the last one, I just wanted to see how it would work. I started from scratch and rolled back a few things from the test 6 kernel. Underclock settings should stick now. Just flash in CWM or TWRP recovery. Let me know how it handles.

U9000 Custom Kernel Test 9.zip

I like it so far. Everything is smooth and working just fine so far. Data and wifi seems to be going better than the stock I had but that's hard to tell with how flaky VM network can be. Atleast it works well with 3g and wifi on at the same time. Sent an MMS while wifi was on and it was fast. The kernel is doing great so far. Nice work.

Now to edit my build.prop to reflect the model correctly. I just like it that way but others might like it as is. Change that power on/off sound. It left the VM hidden directory there? I wiped clean, have no idea how that got there. It even used the bootanimation.zip from VM. Weird.

The bootanimation.zip is in the /hidden/data/Power-on animation folder on the U9000 instead of the /system/media folder like most ROM's. I don't know if it's possible to get rid of that power on/off sound.

All that's there from my original rom, it never did erase it when wiped. Got no clue why. It works.

That tweeters sound right when the lock screen shows up is what I'm trying to find. They probably coded it into the launcher.

Yeah, I was a bit perplexed too since I do a format on /cache, /data, and /system before installing ROM's but I guess it leaves the /hidden partition untouched since my old bootanimation.zip was still in there.

Hopped over from sharp to the u9000 since I was using launcher pro anyways...

Can now confirm that the voicemail fix is unnecessary if you load a backup of your dialer system data. I used Titanium, and have not had any odd issues refreshing all of the system data.

Running test 9 kernel with good results...will update after more use.

On a side note... I have the paid version of Speedx, which has mysteriously vanished from the market. It now fails the market verification because the device id is different, and tells me to reinstall it from the market...which I can't do.

So, is there any way to restore the id from my original stock backup? I feel like its just an editable string somewhere....

It probably disappeared due to the rom telling the play store it isnt a compatible app...try changing to the thunder prop.

I deleted everything in hidden except for data since it wouldn't let me, permissions probably. But, there is nothing in it since I deleted what was inside of it. It boots with another boot image and power on sound.

So, I would imagine, if someone wanted their own custom boot animations, power on/off sounds and power down animations, They could just add those directories with the proper files.

The init.rc script calls /system/bin/bootanimation

From there I havn't found anything else about it.

You can copy the original build.prop from the stock rom and over write it with no ill effects and be golden.

Turns out the Dev of speedx got bought out, and the app was removed from the play store and moved to symbian (wtf?)

So build.prop wasn't the issue... thanks for the advice though...

If you're interested, speedx is an awesome game, and I was able to find the free version on softonic. the free version link for the paid version also still works, so I was able to reinstall the paid version!

kernel test 9 is saving oc settings and running great overall!

Hi Bsydz, I see you've been busy Would like to try this one out, I've been using the sharp rom with good GPS results, but one of the downers of the sharp rom is the bad/missing keyboard dictionary when typing (for predictive word suggestions). Is that fixed in this ROM?

I never use the stock keyboard, I always use touchpal with the slide down symbols, and it has a full dictionary. I added it to both of these cause I can't stand the regular keyboard. But I didn't change anything about the included keyboards except adding touchpal from the Triumph, so it may be something I can look into. Maybe you could try replacing the LatinIME.apk or UserDictionaryProvider.apk with ones from the Stock ROM. I think that touchpal comes with its own built in. Like I said, I never use the regular android keyboard, it just doesn't function for me. I will lok into it next time I am picking at these ROMs. Hope this answers your question.

I went almost immediately to the Gingerbread Keyboard on the MT & then to Swiftkey- with so many easy replacement options, it might not be worth the effort to try & fix the stock keyboard...

Using Swiftkey 3 here as well so unfortunately I can't answer cuisinart's question, but from what I recall while setting up the phone (before installing Swiftkey) I do not remember the keyboard having prediction. Although it may have been disabled when setting up wifi passphrase and passwords...

Hey BSydz,

I flashed this last night along with your ICS theme and it is awesome! This is great for someone who wants that ICS look with full functionality. Great job man!

I believe so, I can't remeber right off hand, but that sounds right. It was a smaller US phone service.

Thanks for the feedback. Is that the only problem you encountered? I haven't really got enough feedback, or used this ROM enough, to know what still needs fixing.

Yes, this ROM is fully functional, it just has a few small quirks here and there. The word is, this is one of the best Froyo ROMs for the Triumph, I've been stuck on my Sharp ROM, so I haven't had a lot of time on this ROM, and my dev phone hasn't had a ROM on it for more than a few days. Hope this answers your question.

Rooted and installed this rom and the test 9 kernal a couple of weeks ago. Much better experience than the stock rom I came from. Most everything seems to work, but I'm only a light user of the phone's features. Haven't tried the GPS or bluetooth.

I did notice that the date is missing from the status bar. I saw that this was a problem fixed on the Sharp rom. Is there a quick fix for the u9000 or is a new kernal required?

Thanks for this excellent rom!

Thanks for the feedback. The date being black on black is a framework-res edit, I can easily fix it like the Sharp ROM. I'll put together a patch, when I get some time. Thanks for pointing that out.

BSydz,

First off hats off to you on this ROM! I am not a big fan of Froyo but after installing your ROM and the ICS theme from jjohn I am very satisfied. It's nice to have that ICS feel and also a working camera / HDMI. Way to go, also I have no problem with the date, when you pull down the status bar it's there which is the same for any other ROM that I know of. Anyways nice work like always!!!

Hello BSydz,
I've been tested out the test 9 kernel for a week or so and its fixed many things. The touch on screen is hell of a lot better, the flicker is gone when waking and shutting off screen and the GPS still locks really quick. There is a bug though, probably it being because of the crappy phone, but every once in a while when typing on the keyboard a button will get "stuck". Let's say I press the button "s" and nothing happens but I can press any other button. This lasts for about 4 seconds being stuck then I can use the the button again. Also, there has been a bug on Froyo since Stock in that when I take a picture or play an app that's in landscape, the Beautiful Widgets get distorted. Like they get squished. Not sure if you can do something about that. If not, it's cool. This ROM is freaking awesome. I really appreciate your work, BSydz.
