    This is totally built from source code. This is JB so a lot of stuff is not working yet. Also expect another version of this. The whole source code has not been released, and they have two versions, CM and AOSP. I am working on AOSP as we speak. This is just to give you guys a taste of Jellybean. :D


    After spending some time trying to set up the repo for the source code, I found that I was using a few wrong repos because of the switch PA made when they rearranged everything. The CM version got abandoned and this is the actual CM version 2.53 instead of 2.99. Everything is set up and ready to build. Source can be pulled with code below.

    General info:
    To be honest, this is not tablet mode at all, it has nothing to do with silly build.prop hacks.

    This is the first and only Android rom to feature true Hybrid mode.
    This rom lets you scale and project every app, every widget, even systemcomponents individually.
    Remember, android is modular, everything is an app: Lockscreen, navigationbar, dialogs, popups, keyboards, widgets, and your regular apps of course.
    Apps have the capability to switch into various designs or layouts according to the device they run on.
    This can result in a complete new experience as many apps will transform to the better.

    Triumph specific:


    repo init -u git://github.com/MT-ParanoidAndroid/android.git -b cm_jellybean


    Thanks to isaacj87, Tickerguy, Whyzor, mantera, g60madman, rukin5197, and anybody else that was involved with Triumph developement. Thanks to the whole Cyanogen Mod team, and the Paranoid team.

    I'll update with more info in time, just need to figure out how things are running. There is just too much for one person to test, so let me know how it goes.

    If you have never flashed a ROM before, follow these instructions.

    If you are on a rooted ROM, it would make it easier to transition, if you backup all of the apks in data/app with a root explorer. Then you don't have to download them and you can just install them from any file manager.

    For those that have CWM or TWRP Recovery already installed follow these steps

    1. Backup
    2. Wipe Data/Factory Reset
    3. Flash Rom
    4. Flash Symlinked Gapps for JB
    5. Reboot

    6. Enjoy

    Second release.
    First boot may get stuck, it is the graphics driver, I just use adb reboot and it works fine, you should be able to pull battery and should boot fine after that.
    Wifi saves password and reconnects after sleeping.
    Other fixes across the board.

    Not working:
    Camera will NOT preview but will take pics
    Video does not record or play
    to be continued...


    Old Builds:

    Not working:
    Wifi won't save password
    Camera same as CM9 will preview but not take pics but will take pics in panorama
    to be continued...

    Ok, threw this on (making a nandroid backup of the last one), it looks nice. Seemed to want me to login to Google twice. Have setup setting to Phablet to see when it was like.

    Mobile data seems not working
    Wifi works, but doesn't auto save settings so doesn't reconnect.
    SMS Test worked (out and back)

    It's currently downloading 73 apps from Google. This could be interesting.

    wow bsydz excellent work! were you able to put this 3g fix into place: androidforums.com/triumph-all-things-root/606349-rom-mtdev-cm10-build-20120825-alpha-3.html#post5215348

    EDIT: I tried it, did not fix 3g

    Glad to see another JB ROM out. I really hope we can fix the WiFi issue because it's getting on my nerves. Has a real weird error in logcat as well..

    But glad to see you get this out and running!

    Try Silent Camera app from play market.I used it on CM9 and it is saving my pictures but only when I use serial shot.If I use it any other way it force closes and can't be used again til reboot.

    My goodness the devs for triump,h are great first we we get the camera real close to working then we get paranoid ics and jb roms I'm happy to have my triumph and the devs for it. I was getting scared at the loss of devs and the slow in development, so much so I started learning to develope myself. Which I'm almost to the point I could start contributing to the community. That's a good thing but even better is the renewed vigor I see in MT development.Im pretty happy with my phone and until I can afford another 300 dollar phone it will serve me fine especially for 25 a month. I've put my phone side to side with newer "better" phones and see very little to run out and pay for. I'm sorry I ranted off topic a bit but this past week has made a flash junky like myself very happy. I love having something new and exciting to play with. THANKS GUYS.....

    all over really..android development and source pages , Java and their tutorials , all kinds of threads on the development and general sections of xda forums , and all kinds of pages I ran across on google .. I did a lot of researching
    and searching some more, and tons of reading. I suppose the first thing I would suggest is reading on how to setup your android development kit or sdk, and start looking for tutorials it depends how far you wanna go. You can learn Android Java c++ and any other programming languages you get interested in if you really want get into it but it takes time and patients . If you need more info there's general sections here to ask and others will know more than me or pm me and I'll answer what I can and point you to some links

    wow thanks for giving us a taste of a new rom! I've been running it for about a day so far and the only problem that i found that others aren't reporting is how it displays the multitasking cards. Thanks again for all your hard work BSydz.

    Thanks for the feedback everybody! I just don't have time to test everything, so this is a great help. So not working seems to be wifi saving passwords, 3G, video playback, and the multitasking icons not filling. I now there are a lot of other things not working with the UI but right now I need hardware feedback. I think PA switched gears to AOSPA which is based off stock android code, so I have been working on that version but it is a pain switching from CM to AOSP, so I haven't even got a full build yet. But this can help with CM10 in general, just knowing what hardware works and what doesn't. CM10 is more complete UI wise, so some of the PA stuff may not work. Thanks again.

    This ROM rocks!!It's running smooth as of now.So far no 3G,no wi-fi tethering(couldn't use anyways without the 3G),video doesn't work (Download MX Player and use S/W codec for most videos),camera previews but doesn't save (like in CM9 use 3rd party app),and headphones don't work.This is all I found.Calls work,bluetooth works,apollo music works,wi-fi works but won't save passwords.If I find more I'll post.Also used Skype and for some reason I got logged out.I had let it set there without using it while logged in.I'll keep an eye on that too.Anyways great work!!!If you fix the 3G I will make this an everyday ROM

    ok my triumph isnt activated so i cant test 3g speeds, but the rom is is very snappy and after modding the build prop( VM heap is at 96m)and ROM Toolbox app(cache from 128k to 1024k) this feels like a brand new phone! and the UI speed matches my sisters Samsung Reverb running ICS!! im very impressed with this ROM...now im going on a bug hunt
