    Default why there is NO upgrade for motorola triumph?

    The title say it all. Comment? I paid $275 from BB and thought I got a upscale smartphone. While all my friends are running at least gingerbread, and we are still stuck with 2.2.2. WHY? I am very upset. Yes, yes, yes, one can use CM7 mod. But how about those less techie, we are just as loyal.

    Virgin Mobile USA and Motorola may or may not officially release Gingerbread for our phones.

    And it only takes you about 5 minutes of your time to install CM7. Literally. Just don't mess anything up.

    the rumor the guy above me posted also said that it should be upgradable to ICS as well after a while. I say return the triumph and borrow someone's old VM phone till its released. Also I will note the triumph is a beautiful phone. And except for my job(cnc) I'm clueless when it comes to tech and a friend walked me through the install of. Cm7.2. If you like I could help you. :-)

    Sorry to triumphme, but virgin mobile phones do not allow roaming of any-kind. It really sucks but. I know it's super tempting to try but I think it's one of those things you can get kicked off for doing too.

    That aside, I know of a few links that are great, and this guy has a TON of Triumph stuff: Motorola Triumph Hacks, Mods, Reviews and More - YouTube
    ^that's all dedicated triumph stuff. It is rather quick if you know what you're doing, but reading the how to-s and watching videos are HIGHLY recommended so you don't screw up your phone, but it's more time consuming.

    Glad you got it working, and I did just get a text from VM yesterday about a privacy policy change. It looks like in July they may start allowing roaming. I'll make a post of it.

    No. It takes less than 2 minute now. A package is out now, dont have to do the 27 steps somebody posted. Just download the package, and follow a step by step guide I posted, VM motorola triumph 2.2>CWM>Sharp port>Miui 2.3.7 step by step, you will get it right.

    Hacking up the Triumph is very easy. If you need additional info, try AndroidForums ( part of the Phandroid site). An option for you may be to take it back to BB, and ask if you can get trade in value
    on an upgrade to another phone. Take a good look at the HTC EVO V, the HTC One V, and the new Samsung phone. I heard of folks doing this, so good luck if you try this route.

    5 minutes my a$$ I've recieve 4 replacements since mar. of 2012. yet paid 300 bucks for this phone. and never ever have i had a simple cm7 installation. i always loose HOURS out of my life. and the last time i did it, my triumph stopped recieving and making calls, it would just reboot. if i answered a phone CALL, it would reboot. 3g constantly dropped. the only thing i was able to edit about the boot graphics what muting the "to get started, press the enter effing key." and this was with the newest cm7. what is the point of hacking your phone if only to clock it????? and have bloatware deleted if youtube flickers in portrait mode. and yet gingerbread is now about obsolete itself!!!! I demand that us loyal MT users get upgraded. 300 to pay another sum of money a year later, 4 replacements later. in cm7 tons of apps crashed. lagged. such a great phone, but motorola held it back from its true potential. WTF!!!!!
