Yummy Fruitcake

Most of the new development on XDA is in the genre of kernels and ROMs but every now and then a gem like this falls into our lap. Everyone meet Fruit Cake Maker. XDA user samcripp has released a tool that will, as he puts it:

allow the user to create a picture perfect .img from your boot and system partition. It will then create an update.zip from it…a self contain ROM, already ready for installation, already inside an update.zip.

What that tells me is that this beast of a tool will take what’s currently on your Motorola Triumph and turn it into a fully functional, fully flashable ROM. That is pure win. If you have a Motorola Triumph, are feeling bold and understand that XDA and samcripp are not responsible for anything bad that happens, then check out the thread for additional details and download links.

For those who aren’t familiar with Fruit Cake Maker, it’s actually a pretty widespread project supporting several other devices. You can check it out here for more details!

If you’ve tried this on other phones or have tried it on the Moto Triumph, take a sec and leave a comment to share your experience.

As it is customary, the CyanogenMod AOSP rom makes its way into virtually every new device out there and the Motorola Triumph seems to not be the exception to the rule. While it is a slow process, it is going on nicely and much to everyone’s delight, XDA member¬†Genesis3¬†just got the radio working properly on this new 2.3.5 version of Gingerbread (CM7, of course). According to a video posted by the dev, the device seems to be able to have two way communication (send/receive) working for both calls and SMS. However, the device still lacks data, which is attributed to the device believing that this has not yet been provisioned for the device. Another thing is that sound is still missing, which renders the phone kinda useless at this point in the project. Not a daily driver just yet, but slowly getting there. Big props to the people working on all this!

The port is at a very early alpha stage and still has a lot of things missing. However, if you would like to become part of this, make sure that you test it out and report feedback (in the form of a logcat if you know how to do it).

That’s real progress – we now have a working radio.

Motorola Triumph Forums Added

August 11, 2011   By:

A little late of an announcement but worth pointing out for those of you who have not noticed this. Late last week, we added Motorola’s latest member of the droid family to our forums. The Motorola Triumph is a step in the opposite direction for Motorola. It was likely released as a mid range phone, while it has rather good hardware, it really does not offer anything that one could call breaking. However, for those of you who are just getting started on Android, this is a pretty good device as it comes loaded with Froyo, which is nice and stable. Most of the regular features in the Motorola Droid family are present such as a 4.1 inch WVGA screen, 1 GHz processor, and a HD out port capable of putting out up to 720p video.

This is one of the largest screened devices on its range and while it may not be a match for devices like the Sensation or the Galaxy S II, it should prove to be a rather interesting development platform. So, if you have one and would like to share your thoughts or apps from this device, please do so in its new forum.

You can visit the Triumph home on xda here.
