While I patiently await CM7 for the Triumph, can anyone tell me how to get this thing rooted? I've owned a G1, Eris, and Optimus V. Each one had a different process. How can I do it on this one?

There is an app you install called GingerBreak. It is found in the same forum you posted this question in, just look for it, I believe it is right under this thread, actually. It is a simple 1-Click root method.

Hope I helped. If I did, could you help a brother out by clicking the thanks button? It's all I got

Here is a link to the aforementioned GingerBreak: http://www.4shared.com/file/kJ-skGa5...rbread_15.html

After rooting, go to the market and install superuser.

Damn, I thought that was for a custom ROM. Thank you! I'll give proper thanks when I get to my Chromebook.

Well, that was quick. All rooted now. However, you linked something that only put on wallpapers. I had to go find 1.2 of GingerBreak.

Besides Gingerbreak 1.2 specifically? Which is right here...
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1044765

There's an "easy root method" that involves renaming the sudo binary in your phone to su... If you do this, it's strongly recommended you install Superuser when you're done.

My ROM (hurrhurr) comes with root already available.
