    I was trying to put clockwork on my triumph. followed the instructions floating around on net now when I press power volume up and volume down all it does is vibrate with black screen. When i just press power all it does is vibrate black screen. I tried reinstalling recovery image, taking off the .img part etc. cannot boot into cwm. When i plug phone into computer I still see mobile drive so an i still in download mode even though no oem polling on screen?
    to make things worse maybe i tired to reformat the mobile drive and now it is completely empty! the link privded to repartition doesnt work.
    Help!! how do i get my phone back to the way it was before trying rhis ( it was rooted) if i can even get the bleeping thing to power on?
    I also charge my battery, took battery out and put bak in etc.

    If you reply please use easy tounderstand language for idiots/newbies. I am not a developer or anything like that- just a girl who wants her phone functioning.
    HEELLP!!! :thinking::(

    Have no fear, help is on the way! I honestly didn't think that we'd see a new member this late in the Triumph's lifespan, but I know for a fact several people have ran into said issue before. It's not even an idiot/newbie mistake. We all have to start somewhere. You have no clue how many Triumphs we've bricked around here, and they were mostly all bricked while doing deving. Just because these guys are not using the Triumph as their main phone anymore luckily does not mean that nobody can help you. They still keep their Triumphs to assist around here, and also to dev occasionally. I haven't touched my Triumph in about a year I'd say, but I can sound the alarm to get help. Plus, it's a work day and all these guys are working. I can promise to bring help, and we can try and fix things, but it may be a little while (a few hours). Thanks for your patience.

    If you can get into download mode you should check the spelling of the 'recovery.img' It should be just that. No spaces, not other spelling. If it's not that report back and we could help you find the right one for your needs.

    ps: Start by pulling the battery for a few minutes.

    Try to get back into download mode. Hold down the volume down and then while pressing it push the power button. Once in download mode connect your USB cable and the replace the recovery.img with the cwm. Once replaced pull the battery. Wait 10 seconds then replace battery and then holding both volume up and down the press power and hold. Should boot into recovery after that.

    when i try to get it in down load mode again it does nothing but vibrate with a black screen. When i hook it up to computer by usb i still see "mobile" drive e. Does that mean it is still downlode mode?

    yes! If you double click on Mobile, you should see a image folder. Rename the recovery.img to recovery.old and then copy the CyanogenMod recovery.img file. Then pull battery, and then follow the steps I listed above to get into recovery.

    I no longer have any files in there except the recovery.img i dragged in because i read in another forum that i might need to reformat the mobile drive so i did that- now all the stuff that was in there boot.img,old recovery is gone!

    Is the Image folder itself still there?

    Anyway, the replacement files you need can be found here: http://androidforums.com/triumph-all-things-root/419789-fix-mobile-partition-fix-phone-wont-boot.html

    If the files in the link in the first post don't work for you, go down to post #14 and try those... May even want to try those first. You'll be good to go.

    Thanks for the files! :) I tried the first set- put the whole folder in to mobile drive.
    Now when i unplugged the phone and tried to power on I get nothing. No lights etc. Do you think it is the battery. I charged it with a wall charger in the phone all night??
    I checked and the new folder and all the files you posted were in there.
    Now what do you think the problem could be? Should I try the other set of files
    Bsyder posted??
