The Motorola Triumph is one of the better handsets in the market right now. It’s got a decent 4.1-inch WVGA screen, nice 2GB of storage, and a fairly reasonable $300 price tag. The main problem with it is that it only uses vanilla Froyo. This puts it at a disadvantage compared to phones that are packing Gingerbread. There are also several advantages that aren’t available to Froyo users, like a better and improved interface and others. Unfortunately, Motorola hasn’t announced any plans to upgrade the phone to a more modern OS, which is a pity.
Well, here’s some good news for Triumph owners. The CyanogenMod7 was recently ported to the Triumph and the the popular modding/rooting tool is bring something with it. Namely Android 2.3.5.
Yup, it seems that a clever modder managed to get Cyanogen Mod 7 working on his Triumph and upped the version from 2.2 to 2.3.5. That’s a decent enough jump from a consumer’s standpoint. However the bug problem is that little-to-nothing is working on the phone. The largest part of the blame for this lack is due to the fact that the kernel source not being released quite yet for the Triumph. We’ll have to wait for Motorola to get on the ball and release it, so development can resume on making Gingerbread a viable platform for the Triumph to run on.
