    If you are on 2.2.2, then the gingerbreak apk should work for you. I did it and it gave me root access in minutes. Even though you don't need to root if you want to install custom roms. All you have to do then is install which ever recoveery you like and most of the roms come with root access.

    This is only for the Motorola triumph for some reason every triumph is already half way rooted you just need to command it to fully give you root access

    Step 1: Download Android Terminal Emulator
    from the market.

    Step 2: Open up the Emulator and type in sudo,
    you should get the # symbol.

    Step 3: Type in the following code:
    Code:
    ln -s /system/xbin/sudo /system/bin/su
    ln -s /system/xbin/sudo /system/xbin/su

    Step 4: Reboot and you should have root
    access

    NOTE: This will not install busybox, so if
    you wish to have busybox you will have to
    install it from the market or manually. This just
    provides you with root access.

    THERE YOU GO GUYS

    Thank: b_randon14 at XDA and ANDROID FORUMS for making this happen
    Does this mean, in a few words, that I can root my Triumph without a PC!!!!

    Yes it does sudo is the superuser command in Linux, it bypasses.not having to have superuser already installed on your phone.

    But it only works for certain phones.

    Triumph running 2.2.2 can use Ginger break to root without a PC? Just as easily as the optimus v was?

    That's what I used on my husband's Triumph. I have an HTC Evo 3d on VM but he still has his Triumph. It worked like a dream. Now I'm stuck without root on the HTC because I don't have a computer. Not to mention having to unlock bootloader, gain s-on, ect. I wish every phone was so easy to root. It's a must If u want to get rid of all the bloat mfr 's like to toss in.
