    Well, I'll admit, I haven't had much sleep in the last few days, but it's definitely worth it. I figured I'd put that donation money to good use, right?

    In any case, we now have CyanogenMod 7 booting on the Triumph! Now, before you get excited and ask me when can you download it, I have to admit: Pretty much everything isn't working... yet. However, this is a big first step. Once I do get everything working, you can be sure that I'll let you guys know. :)

    However, to hold you over and whet your appetite, here's some pics of CM7 running on the Triumph:

    Awesome work man! Would be good to have a log of what doesn't work or what works (probably this will be shorter) :p

    Anyways Keep up the good work!

    Edit:- Is the FM Radio working in CM7. you will need a wired headset to test.

    Can you tether with a non ad hoc network in CM7?

    Great work! I haven't had the privilege of using CM7 yet, but I've heard many great things about it. Looking forward to putting this on my wife's Triumph when you're done.

    I'm assuming nothing works due to not having the kernel source?

    WOW! I just picked this phone up yesterday because T-Mobile was putting the screw to me - figured I'd live with AOSP Froyo - nice to see this milestone having been reached!

    isaac, I am guessing due to the lack of any kind of kernal source(aka drivers) is the reason why nothing works... or am i wrong on this? anyway, thanks for all the hard work!
    PS anyone who can answer that is free to chime in...

    google "gingerbreak.apk"

    download and put on your sd card

    go to settings>applications> check "Unknown sources", then go to Development and check "usb debugging"

    if you don't already have a file manager, install Astro File Manager (or another) from the market

    go into Astro, find the file you downloaded

    install

    run (might take a minute), it'll reboot

    done.

    Great job isaac on the work!!! Saw a pic of TJ_Styles ported over miui for the x6 variant as well! Maybe he would be so grateful to port something over for the triumph? Looks like this phone was worth leaving contract after all!

    I'm so excited for this! I'll definitely try and donate what I can as soon as I'm able to. I just flashed CM7 on my Optimus to get a hang of it before this is released for the Triumph, can't wait!
