Default I erased the image from my MOBILE file....

I accidentally (ok, mistakenly) deleted the IMAGE file from my Motorola triumph while trying to flash over CM7 Reloaded ROM. It bricked on reboot (after I had realized I needed to flash Gapps as well) and kept bricking. I tried to flash a Stock ROM over yet when I did, the space was not enough in the MOBILE file. So.. I erased what was there. The file ejected itself and now the phone won't do a thing EXCEPT come up with MOBILE and show what files I was able to transfer of the Stock ROM. I am new to all this so I'm positive I did something wrong, I'd just like to be able to get it back to stock if I can. Just got the phone so nothing major would be lost. But like I said, it won't launch into anything, so I don't know how possible this is with only access to IMAGE file through MOBILE or SD Card is obviously readable. Help?


Thanks, and thanks to those who did the step by steps of how to do custom ROMS and install CWM....Those were helpful, I'm just positive I didn't fully get what I was doing.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I forgot my USB cable today. Hopefully you can drag and drop someone elses info there. Maybe the recovery file itself would be enough?

Follow the clockwork mod install instructions and drag it over. Rename it to recovery and see if you can access CWM.

did you make a backup before trying to flash ? can you still access download mode (the thing you did from the guide that showed you how to put CWM) if you can access download you can just flash CWM and fix from there if you cant even get into dowbload mode looks like ADB will be the only option well as far as i know maybe theres other options

ok you delete the IMAGE file only right? the file that was name "recovery"?or did you delete the whole folder name Mobile(idk if is a folder or a partition i dont have my cable)if you did erase the recovery only then that only means you dont have a recovery on your phone anymore and is a simple fix but it odd how you were able to flash a stock rom after it was erase and if you did erase the whole folder/partition MOBILE then is not that bad that folder mainly contains all the files to boot up dont worry the triumph is pretty unbrickable with download mode and ADB anything can be fix its just a matter of getting all the files you need to boot back into your phone

What i believe the OP is saying is they were trying to flash CM7 but instead of going into download mode and replacing just the recovery and booting into ClockworkMod, they deleted the entire folder named Image


When you connect in download mode, developer mode, whatever you wanna call it the phone comes up as MOBILE and it only has 1 folder i believe, Image
ill attach a picture of what the image folder looks like on mine


Without the Files Boot, Splash, and recovery atleast , i dont think the phone will be able to boot, Ie. thats why no matter what you do its bootlooping

now to better help you i will need to know what version on triumph you have there is the old triumphs and new triumphs knowing which one you have can maybe help get you back the files you need if im not mistaken the old and new triumph have different files that go into the internal memory (i could be wrong)

You can tell which version of the phone you have by looking under the battery cover - if you have SIX barcodes you have the NEWER revision. If you have SEVEN barcodes then you likely have a phone from the original batch the OLD revision

You guys are awesome with wanting to help! I expected very little helpful responses but these seem legit and totally possible. Phew--i thought I was out a few hundred bucks....

Here is a description of the phone as of now: No download mode, no CWM mode, no mode, period. The ONLY thing I can do with the phone is plug it into the computer, and MOBILE comes up. Here it has the IMAGE file, inside the IMAGE file is another file to open. It was or is a version of the fully Stock ROM (but I'm almost 100% sure it did not download correctly or all the way into the IMAGE folder). Inside that file are 3 files --boot, splash (i think), and ftm (i think). The reason for (i think) is because I am now at work and did not bring the phone or USB with me to work. But it's something similar of that nature and I'm almost 100% there is no file called recovery.

Okay, with that being said-- Here is what I did, step by step, link by link:

I downloaded CWM on my phone through Download Mode using a mixture of this forum: http://androidforums.com/triumph-all-things-root/445483-guide-installing-cwm-custom-rom-motorola-triumph.html

and this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txP8pqtIlXE

this is download I used: http://www.mediafire.com/?5scliag5unk2ldu
(I FIRST DOWNLOADED THIS STRAIGHT FROM THE INTERNET TO MY PHONE RATHER THAN HOOKING UP TO USB, DONT KNOW IF THAT MATTERS EITHER)

Afterwards, I replaced the IMAGE file from my phone with the downloaded recovery file (**WITHOUT MAKING A BACK UP OF THE IMAGE FILE ON MY PHONE BEFOREHAND**don't know if that matters or not)

After that, I was able to boot into CWM, make backups, etc. and also power into my normal stock version of my phone.

Once I had installed CWM, I then downloaded this (without the GAPPS, I didn't realize I needed to download those until after I had already TRIED rebooting): http://androidforums.com/triumph-all-things-root/470282-rom-cm7-tg-reloaded-final-03-25-a.html

and followed these instructions on how to flash/install:
http://androidforums.com/triumph-all-things-root/445483-guide-installing-cwm-custom-rom-motorola-triumph.html

After I got to reboot, it bricked and wouldn't move past the Motorola "M" symbol. Sat like that for at least an hour. By then, I was removing the battery, trying to power on, re-doing the flash, etc.

Since it kept bricking, I attempted to replace the IMAGE file with a Stock ROM (not sure that I can find it again). Once I downloaded the stock to my desktop, I tried dropping it in the IMAGE file but there was 'not enough space'. So then, I erased all files within the Image folder and attempted to replace them with the Stock folder. At that point, the USB ejected itself and halfway downloaded the Stock. Now, it's at its "as is state" that I mentioned in detail at the beginning of this post.

I'm sure I did something terribly wrong. First time doing this.... By the way, i apologize for not giving as much detail at the beginning. Was in a hurry and wanted to test the waters to see if I got any bites before wasting my finger energy on something that cannot be fixed.


Thanks again!

Also I'd like to mention that I may not have properly UNZIPPED the files when having downloaded them. Working from Windows 7 and I was unsure of how to do that or if it needed to be done. I guess I would have needed a newb's step by little baby step instructions and I jumped the gun and took a huge nonbaby-stepped leap.

Uggh.

I'm not sure... I know the phone was bought in March 2012 and the original files were modified then. I can look later when I'm back at home.

haven't worked on a triumph with this situation but have done work on a triumph with a similar problem that sounds bout the same the other triumph the MOBILE partition was format it completely from using a old CWM which apparently formats your whole MOBILE partition .... as i was reading what was up seems like the same is happening to you as you can confirm you can get into the MOBILE partition from the pc which means your phone must be stuck on download mode since there isnt anything to boot .....also like you said the screen stays black (it might have something to do with the display driver that got delete or something) because even after fixing the other triumph there wasnt a splash screen or a display of anything when on download mode but everything else was fine

Screen definitely stays black. This may be what is up with mine. So there is a fix?

TY!

ok looks like maybe your just missing a recovery but then again there is 8 files on tokens210 and you only said you got 3 (but then again not sure how many stock files theres suppos to be)

ok maybe ill just guide you threw the installing CWM part and see what that does if you can boot into CWM then we can replace the missing files threw a zip or manualy and will be more easy on you im guessing long as theres a working recovery on the MOBILE partition then it could boot into Recovery evrything else should have to do with booting the actualy phone/ROM

well windows 7 has its stock zip program but yes its kinda hard to work it if your not familiar with windows 7 there is other programs you can use which are more user friendly i use winrar which is free heres a link for the 32 bit version (which i assume you have since its standard i my self use 64 bit so if you need 64 bit version let me know)just download make sure to right click and run as administrator(dont forget to do that on windows 7 since some programs act up)install leave evrything as is standard installation onces is install wait until it saids done or show readme or w.e onces is install your good to go when you want to unzip something right click it (you will see all files associated with winrar will have the winrar icons on the files)and click extract here (whick will extract on the location the zip is located or extract files...(which you can choice where to extract files to a windows will open to pick the location or 3rd option extract to "what ever name the zip is" (which will extract to a folder named "what ever zip file is name "

Thank you. In the meantime, I'll search too. But I believe you're right. It seems to be in download mode, what you're describing. What is ADB? From what you're saying, it seems as if it's a from scratch re-do of the phone--which I don't mind doing UNLESS it's far too complicated to do. Obviously my complications came from not knowing what I was doing....

im guessing since it cant boot into anything it boots into what ever mode is available which will be download mode and like i mention nothing will be display on the screen ....ADB (Android Debug Bridge) basically a program for developers and /or developing needs which everything is done manually its for advance users or who ever knows what they are doing main purpose if for debugging dont worry much on it since you have access to download mode which is also more noob friendly

So basically, if the MOBILE file is accessible--that means it's in download mode. Should I try downloading CWM again like a previous response had mentioned? I just wish I knew what to do to make the display come back on. Is it as simple as downloading the files, unzipping them, then placing them into my IMAGE folder? Confusion is starting to set in.

yes if you have access to MOBILE folder/partition you are in download mode ...yes i would suggest to first try to put the 'recovery' file back to see what happens and then take it from there ...as far as the display i seem it before when boot into download mode there is no display the normal thing that happens when on download mode it shows words and stuff on the screen but since stuff got erase i suppose thats why the screen stays black not sure what MOBILE does or contains only know it holds boot up related files like recovery splash screen and stuff

ok lets start off by getting the zip issue figure out to make sure its not that
ill follow this tutorial since is clear and well put together

[GUIDE] Installing CWM and a custom ROM on the Motorola Triumph

1.ok here is the recovery file which is already unzip so no need to unzip it

Download recovery img

i would suggest learning how to unzip a zip file since most things come zip up like i mention you can use winrar or w.e you like best zip files are use for many reason one being saves space when downloading another is you can md5 check then after download to make sure you have a good working file

i suppose it would be best to try to get CWM flash instead of the stock recovery but im not sure if some one can confirm which will be better on this situation please do .....i assume CWM will be better since it has all the helpful options like mounting SD card so files can be copy also gives access to ADB but then again maybe stock recovery can get evrything back to stock hmmm im not sure

wow.

ok, the MOBILE drive you are seeing is the phones first and most basic storage.

it contains the things absolutely needed for it to boot up and run.

you DO NOT put the ROM file into this area. you do NOT unzip the rom to this area.

the ONLY use for this MOBILE drive is to replace the recovery image with the CWM recovery.

then you turn off download mode and do all your rom installing while on the phone from within CWM recovery.


from what I read, it sounds like you tried to unzip the rom itself to the mobile partition thinking that was installing it. then you panicked and deleted everything.


your in luck. you have an unlocked bootloader, thats why the phone defaults to download mode when its missing important files, it expects them to be replaced.

I believe the guides and how tos suggest for you to make a FULL BACKUP of everything in that mobile partition, so in case you totally fudge it up, you can just erase everything, and replace it with the backed up files.

sooooo lets hope you followed directions

in case you didnt follow the simplest directions, your next step would be for someone ELSE to send you their backed up MOBILE partition.

partway thru the production they changed the triumph and the older software might not be compatible with the newer phone. as other users in this thread suggested.

youll have to find out exactly what model of triumph you have so someone with a similar one can get you a backup of the MOBILE drive. once thats backed up, you can start over.

basically, never, ever ever put anything inside the mobile drive unless its a recovery image, and even then you HAVE to back up the old one and replace ONLY that one file. never ever just go randomly deleting things or unzipping things to this area of the phone.

I have a recovery file from when i first downloaded CWM. I don't know particularly know what this will recover, as I don't think I backed up the recovery.img file in the MOBILE-->IMAGE file when initially installing CWM. So, since the simplest instructions were most likely not followed, I'm going to assume I need to be sent a backup.

When you say, this, and if I can get a backed up file of the MOBILE partition for my Triumph, do I need to replace the whole MOBILE partition or just the recovery area? I understand once the MOBILE partition is backed up on my phone to never ever ever put anything other than recovery--ever again.

Thanks for a thorough explanation as to what's happening--or what my phone is thinking. Makes more sense now rather than not understanding what's going on.

11.(make sure to do 11 and 12) 12********* 13. make sure to press all the correct button

hopefully after this The phone will boot into CWM. The latest version 5.0.2.6 will have blue lettering.

if you are able to get to CWM let me know if not then will work from there

Thank you for the steps. I will attempt to get CWM back on once I can get a backed up newer version for the triumph.

Follow the clockwork mod install instructions and drag it over. Rename it to recovery and see if you can access CWM.

[GUIDE] Installing CWM and a custom ROM on the Motorola Triumph
Recovery file itself wasn't enough. Tried just now

I have the newer Triumph. Mind sending me yours when you can?

Thanks so very much for the help.

yes, you will need to wipe everything in the mobile drive and replace it with someone elses mobile drive backup. not JUST the recovery file.

there are a few files in there that make the phone work, the recovery is just one of them.

....Any chance that you would be willing, or possibly know someone that may be willing to send me a backup of theirs?

Now it won't load MOBILE at all. it would off and on, and each time (twice) i tried copying the image file over to the MOBILE file, it would eject itself from USB. Now it won't come on at all, like download mode isn't coming up anymore.

that guide is if you formated your whole partition meaning the hidden fiels got erase too you only erase the files that were visible..... ok so you were able to copy the recovery file right ??? did you try the guide that you posted ???

you shouldave waited for more instruction well here is the files follow the instructions step by step

http://www.noxtek.com/android/triumph/good_triumph_mobile_image.zip

Download and unzip the above file somewhere on your PC, you'll wind up with an 'image' folder. Boot your Triumph in download mode (vol-down + power) and then plug it into your PC. When the 'mobile' drive pops up on your computer, open it and delete the 'image' folder from it. Now copy the 'image' folder from the unzipped file above back to the 'mobile' drive. Once it's done you can unplug your Triumph, pull the battery, put the battery back in and then power it up! (wait a while since it might boot but not show anything on the screen so give it some time)

You should have your boot splash back, the big green battery (charging animation) should show up on the screen if you plug the phone in to charge while it's turned off, and the white USB polling text should show up on the screen if you power it on in download mode(if there is no boot logo or txt when in download mode but everything works fine then this is also normal)

just to make sure once you successfully copy all the files it should look exactly like this

MOBILE X: /image/"all the files include on the zip"
(make sure it looks exactly like this )
when you go to my computer phone should display as MOBILE drive and be shown as MOBILE X: inside this drive there should be a folder named 'image' make sure there is a folder named "image' inside the MOBILE drive should look like this
MOBILE X: /image/"all the files from the zip'
(X=what ever letter your computer shows the drive as most likely F: or w.e you might have make sure there in the folder named 'image' inside MOBILE and inside 'image' folder all the files from the zip are inside test and let me know

Thank you all for your help. I ended up sending the phone into Motorola. They say it's still under warranty but I'm almost positive when they look at it further, they will have to charge me to fix it. It ended up not going back into download mode at all. My computer stopped registering the MOBILE portion when the phone was plugged into it by USB.

:\ I will never. ever. do that. again. Lesson learned
