    hey every one i saw a leaked version of gingerbread for the droid 2, and i though "isnt the triumph basically a remake of a droid?" so i decided to see if anyone here could port it. i think it would be easier since its already coming from a cdma phone already and the phones are so similar :D.... heres the link gingerbread leak

    Probably not by a good chance.....triumph is a remake of huewii X6 thats why huewii software from other variants have been able to work for us without bricking our phones.....

    The TB might have the same SoC, but it's quite different.

    To port any android version the both phones have to have ATLEAST 90% the same software, 80% is hard, 70% the deveoper isnt going to get any sleep for a couple weeks, hardware barely means anything, except a estimate of how much load the phone can handle.

    Bluntly that ain't (very) true.

    The problem with "oddball" devices like this one is that companies like HTC use the same chipsets for various functions across different devices with only minor changes. Same with LG. This makes it pretty simple.

    This device is..... odd. That's the best way to describe it. And it's responsible for the problems we're having right now - the implementations we have to crib from are all from firms that have NOT released source to what they did. So while we have a kernel (which Moto was obligated to release) what we're missing is a lot of other bits, and we're literally looking for the match in the code with "grep" that happens to correspond with what we know we have, turning that on, and then looking for why it doesn't work and attempting to fix it.

    We got lucky with the graphics hardware in that the adreno driver is already there in open source or we would have been completely hosed. That particular part of hardware, incidentally, is a monster - it's a very high-performance implementation.

    It isnt odd, just cheap/unoriginal by the company, Huewii toke parts from different phones(high end phones of 2009/2010) and made them into the X6, meaning, also its variants/rebrandings, but is still is still the powerfulest prepaid phone.

    Oh no, it's odd. Drivers show up in odd places, etc. It makes it lots of fun doing development for it.
