Motorola Triumph Upgrades 12/16/11 Update
First of all you have to have a Virgin Mobile Motorola Triumph in order to do this process that I'm going to start showing you guys in a bit
Step1. Download Gingerbreak from GOOGLE simply type in "GINGERBREAK
.APK" and download any of the files you see that are able to download this app.(THIS WILL NOT HARM YOUR PHONE)!!
STEP2. Now that you have "GINGERBREAK" root your phone (IT WILL REBOOT ON SUCCESSION)
STEP3. Download "4SHARED" from the ANDRIOD MARKET
STEP4. Now that you have installed 4SHARED and created your account type in on the search box "SETCPU.APK"a list will show up get any of them they all work now press and hold to add to your account now simply press it and downloaded instal.
STEP5. Will need to instal CWR ClockWorksRecovery:
Make sure phone is unplugged then turn it
2. Hold down the Power button and Volume
3. It will say on phone "Incoming Download
"polling, get oemsbl_mode = 1" and will keep
Just ignore it
4. Now plug your phone into your computer.
There will be a removable device with storage
that is called MOBILE (F
5. Click on MOBILE (F and you will see a file
called "image" .
6. Open up "image" and there will be a file
called "recovery. img"
7. Copy and paste "recovery. img" to your
8. Now delete the "recovery. img" from the
9. hotfile.com dl/133185967/2993c7c recovery-cwm-22.214.171.124-triumph.zip.html
Rename file inside to recovery. img)
10. Now move the recovery. img from the file
you downloaded into the "image" folder.
11. Now take out your battery.
12. Now press and hold Power, Volume Up, and
13. You will boot into recovery
-Note- You'll need to Sign Up for this some Forums just a few clicks away no biggie right?By Signing Up you'll be allowed to Download files needed.
STEP6. You should have gotten your CWR installed on your phone by simply pressing "VOLUME UP DOWN WITH THE POWER BUTTON ALL TOGETHER" you should be in CWR
-NOTE- Now we will need to instal "UMPH KERNAL" on to your phone using Clock works Recovery (CWR) which is by far better than that of the Stock Motorola Kernal!
-2ND NOTE- You guys Know the Motorola Triumph runs on a 1ghz snapdragon processor by instaling the UMPH KERNAL your phone will be at 1.9 ghz HERES HOW: Download the Umph kernal here's a link to it: Umph-Kernelv1.zip
STEP7. After downloading the Umph Kernal download "ANDRO ZIP"from the ANDRIOD MARKET now simply make a new folder name it "UMPH KERNAL" go to your Download folder look for the Umph kernal Zip. Grab and move to the folder who was just created "UMPH KERNAL" Now tap on the the Umph zip kernal and it extract the files to that specific folder it should say "EXTRACT FILE HERE"
Once done, LEAVE THE SD
After this reboot your phone in ClockworkMod
Recovery.(VOLUME UP DOWN HOLD POWER-BUTTON ALL TOGETHER)
Once you are in the recovery, go to install Zip from SD
LOOK for the FOLDER YOU PLACED IT IN "UMPH KERNAL" select the kernel zip file and flash / install.
After the installation is complete, reboot your device.
Apparently it’s better to keep your phone up to 1.4
GHz for a safe and smooth ride.NOW I FORGOT TO MENTION WHEN ON CLOCK WORKS RECOVERY "MENU KEY IS CONSIDERED BACK" AS VOLUME UP IS USED TO GO UP AS VOLUME DOWN IS USED TO GO DOWN THE POWER BUTTON IS USED AS A SELECT BUTTON"!
STEP 8. Now that your new Kernal is in place simply go into SETCPU which should be installed by now and overclock it from 1 ghz to 1.5 which is at what I have it at because 1.9 kills the battery change "ON DEMAND" to "SCARY"simple press the back button BAM!! OVERCLOCKED
STEP9. Its time to change the PRL of the phone if you guys don't know what it is its Okay ill show you by using the PRL it will attache your phone to the nearest server in your area therefore giving you guys better signal and 3g
NOTE: You don't have to do it but if you want a boost in 3g in both the DOWNLOAD/UPLOAD area then you differently should do this.
STEP10. Instal "ANYCUT" from the Andriod Market once installed simply press on home windows till a windows pops up press on "SHORTCUT" now press on "ANYCUT" View throught files to tell you find and select
COM PORT MODE", After widget is applied tap on widget and choose diagnostic mode or "DIAG"and
there you GO
STEP11. How to obtain your MSL or "MASTER SECURITY LOCK" which most companies including VIRGIN MOBILE won't give to you here's howownload and install aLogcat (free) from the
Run "ALOGCAT" and set it to "FILTER" by pressing the MENU type in "SEC_CODE " press home and
Go to your Phone and dial ##33284#
When prompted for the MSL, type 000000.
Now, go back to aLogcat. It should have found a
"sec_ code:" line with your MSL code at the end
of it. It's 6 digits. That's your MSL save it!
Hope that helps.
STEP12. Now where half way towards getting the PRL:Use the Motorola Triumph USB cable (the one that comes with the phone)- Others may work
but this cable was designed for use with the
phone, use it if possible.
Stock Phone Driver- Found on the phone when
connected via USB. This driver should be
installed before attempting any modifications.
QPST 2.7 Build 366- This is what I use, other
versions may work as well.
Sprint PRL 60683- This is the latest version of
the Sprint PRL and includes the most recently
added towers.But if found other PRL'S like 01115 01119 01120 they work.Ok Just use the Sprint PRL.
MotoConnect- Not technically required but
makes the detection process easier due to
QPST 2.7 BUILD 366 LINK:QPST_2.7_366.rar
MOTOCONNECT: USB and PC Charging Drivers - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA
01120 PRL: 01120.zip
Mt Stock PRL 60680: 60680.rar
Newest Sprint prl 60683: There's a bunch on the web just typing Sprints New prl 60683
NOTE: Make sure to EXTRACT FILES!on your computer or with your phone using "ANDROZIP" which you should have installed by now
STEP13. The next step is to identify what COM ports
your particular computer uses to connect with
the Triumph. Open your device manager on
your computer -it can be in the control panel depending what computer u use-and expand the “Ports” section.
Make sure your phone has USB debugging
STEP14. As I told you before you had to extract QPST and the prl file to your computer in the same folder.
STEP15.Open Up the QPST Click the windows log at the bottom click on program right click QPST after clicking it there should be a list of programs to run click on "QPST CONFIGURATION"
1. Open QPST Configuration
2. Select the "Ports" tab

4. Uncheck "Show Serial and USB/QC Diagnostic
5.Click on your device and hit OK
6. Highlight your phone on the "Ports" tab
7. Open up the "Start Clients" menu
8. Click on "Service Programming
9.QPST Service Programming will open up and a
"Phone Selection" window will appear: Click
your phone if needed, and press OK
10.Now select the "Roam" tab and click on "Read
from Phone" button
11. Enter your MSL, OK
12. Click on the "Browse" button and select the PRL
file you want on your phone
13. Click the "Write to Phone" button next to the
"read phone" button
14.Wait for it to finish writing there should be a line loading on top of the phone. You
might (read as most likely) get an error box,
click OK on it.
15.Once all that is done, you can reboot your
phone and enjoy the changed PRL
STEP16. Get root explorer from the Andriod market or type in "ROOT EXPLORER.APK" on googles Web and download it and instal it to your phone its and APP
STEP17. Ok now Copy this:
ro.product. rat=EvDo only
STEP18. Go into root explorer find "SYSTEM" a new page opens now press and hold on (BUILD.PROP) Tell is pulls up a list of things to do click on "OPEN IN TEXT EDITOR" now you'll see a page of black word on white paper
STEP19.Paste what you earlier copies on to this paste it under "RO.PRODUCT just find the letters And past it at the end of the last RO.PRODUCT file just paste and reboot
NOTE:The next step is if you want full ANDRIOD MARKET access now all you need to is instal the BUILD PROP. file viavia Clock Works Recovery this is the build prop. From and HTC THUNDERBOLT which has the same CHIP SET as The Triumph but with full market access
STEP20. Go to your Andriod market look up order and chaos you won't be able to find it on the normal motorola triumph when you flash it to the thunderbolts Build.prop you will and many more other apps like
Crackle, Order and Chaos, Modern combat 2,
NOVA 2, Backstab etc. Basically it will show
everything a thunderbolt can see. I used that
phone as my basis because it is similar to ours
yet it has more support in the market for apps
such as the ones gameloft offers.
First instal the Thunderbolts zip from here: androidforums.com/triumph-all-things-root/405837-thunderprop-build-prop-market-access-updated-10-4-2011-a.html
NOTE2: You are going to have to sign up for this forum in order to get the zip required the zips name which your suppose to get is called: MTThunderprop.zip
STEP21. Now go into AndroZip which you should have installed on your phone I'f you haven't been following this forum you get it from the market now create a folder name it "Thunderbolt" now look for the thunder.zip file you just downloaded grab and move to the THUNDERBOLT FOLDER now press and extract
STEP22. Go to Manage Applications, click on
market and make sure to force stop first and
then clear data on your Andriod Market App
STEP23. Now turn off your phone
STEP23. PRESS AND HOLD VOLUME UP AND DOWN WHILE HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON ALL "TOGETHER"!
STEP24. Now you are on CWR now go to "INSTAL ZIP FROM SD CARD" and simply look for your folder where you placed the thunder.zip now instal or to your phone and your done reboot back
STEP25. Now that your Phones on go to"SETTINGS" " ABOUT PHONE " and you'll see your Triumph is no triumph its actually "THE HTC TRIUMPH THUNDER" lol check the oses its at 2.3.4 there you go guys Thank you for reading bye!..
