    If it is running stock ROM (froyo) just do a factory reset.

    If it is running a custom ROM, boot to recovery and see if there is a stock back up to restore. If not, you can download a stock ROM from the all things root sub forum here and flash that.

    You will have to be on stock to activate it.
    After that you have a choice of basically CM7 (gingerbread), CM9 (ICS) or Paranoid android (ics also). There are no official ROMS other than the froyo ROM it came with.

    Ok, number 1
    2.2 is not your problem.
    Froyo is the only stock ROM ever released for the Triumph.

    I need to know, in detail, exactly what you did. Step by step.

    I'm thinking you're misunderstanding something.

    ok, now we're getting somewhere.
    that's all wrong.

    This is all in the stickied post at the top of the All Things Root sub forum...
    (That's where this post belongs, too so expect a mod to move it at any time)

    1. To install clockwork mod recovery, you boot to boot mode and replace the recovery.img FILE inside the recovery FOLDER with the cwm one

    2. To flash a ROM, you put the ROM zip file on your sd card (DO NOT UNZIP), boot into cwm recovery (power+ both vol) and navigate to it and install.

    If you unzipped a ROM into the recovery FOLDER on the Mobile drive, you need to get all that crap off of there.
