    Are you hitting the correct button to select the menu?

    Volume up --> up
    Volume down --> down
    Menu --> select
    Back --> back

    Could we get an update of the first post? There's a lot of outdated info, namely the newest/best ROMs to use.

    Mantera: You are the man. The select key is the menu, I was using the power key, silly me. And now it works like a jam. I made my 1st Nand backup. Question, Where would I find the file, I want to copy out to a PC to safe store it. I knows some adb push and pull and /mnt etc. I just want to know where is this nand back up hiding and what does it call.

    The next question: what is a good ROM to flash. My goal is tethering. That is it. I dont care about hdmi. I want wifi hotspot. So far, my reading suggest
    1) Tingerguy CM7
    2) Sharp ROM (not sure it tether)
    3) ICS alpha
    4) Would any of these disturb my virgin mobile phone, I mean, the phone still work, right?


    TIA,

    bun

    You guys ROCK!

    I installed CWM 5.0.4.4 and followed with the Sharp 2.2.2 and my Moto Triumph is re-born! Everything works so far, the phone, the wifi, skype, browser, navigation.

    Thank you you all,

    bun

    You might want to start in the thread that you got the ROM. On top of that, you may have a bad download. You could try downloading the ROM again and checking the MD5checksum if it's listed.

    I have an Android Allwinner A10 tablet running A8 cortex ARMV7 CPU.
    Its branded SVP TPC1051
    I followed instructions to the T to get into recovery . In the recovery It says use Volume up and down to navigate. However that does NOT work. Neither does tapping the screen work. Volume + /- navigation gives me a red triangle with exclamation mark and nothing else happens

    This is the forum for the Motorola Triumph. You would probably find more correct support in the forums for your device.

    If you're using a mac, you'll get stumped on moving files between phone and computer. This worked for me with stock Triumph, but give the computer time (at least 60 seconds or more) to read the phone and whatever storage card you have.

    This is it, the thread you'll want if you're sick of stock Virgin Triumph (and you have a mac). I installed the following ROM: MTDEV-CM7 build 2013-03-03 Without Bootsound, took my time, did it per instructions, and so far it works great. On a mac, you don't need to install the Android SDK (software developer kit), don't have to mess around with installing Java, and you don't need anything but that first page and a USB cable. Very nice, many thanks. Wish I'd come across this thread much sooner.

    Glad it worked out for you.
    It always pays to check out the "stickied" posts at the top of every forum. They list all the important stuff.

    Totally confused:thinking:
    Do you have access to the recovery? That's both volume keys and then power.

    the triangle with exclamation mark is stock recovery. put clockwork mod recovery on it.

    All you do is boot into download mode (vol+ power down) plug into computer, and put the recovery.img file (from cwm) in the Image directory, overwriting the existing recovery.img file.
    Then eject the Mobile drive on computer and unplug usb.
    Pull battery and replace.
    Boot into recovery mode (power+ both vol) and you should be in cwm recovery.
    If not, this has to be ironed out first.
