[ROM][UPDATE: 04/05/2012][bROM v1.2]
Thanks to ziggy46 for the graphic here!!
bROM is a heavily themed ROM based of the stock 2.2.2 Motorola Triumph ROM. I have added many mods to it, sch as the reboot/recovery and power widgets mod thanks to mantera. It features a custom kernel capable of OC/UV, and has many tweaks I developed specifically for this device. I have removed alot of the bloat from previous versions, and this should be a very fast and stable ROM with very few bugs.

and list of bugs
Please read through all of these post to obtain the best understanding of this ROM!!
- for helping me build my kernel, and lots of Android/Linux advice along the way
- for testing, giving advice and suggestions, and always believing in my skills, plus some tweaks from his ROMs
for his work on his ROMs and ideas and PNGS I took from them
- without him, the theme would be nothing like what it is
- he provided me with the links on how to make the reboot recovery mod, and helped me with it, as well as the power widgets and a lot of kernel stuff
- for all his hardwork getting issues straightened out on this phone, and helping me with questions I had
- he is the one who got alot of dev work started on this phone, without him it would probably still be a mostly stock phone
- he built the first Triumph kernel, and found the DooMLoRD's OC clock tables would work on our kernel as well
- he provided pwnyourace with the OC tables and allowed us to have an overclocked kernel
- he took over the ideosX6 kernel, and some of my kernel ideas came from him, and he helped in the OC tables
- he helped get the 2GHz patch into the OC tables
- he is the theming God, and helped me in countless ways when theming
- they all got my brother(shane87) interested in building kernels, which he intern got me interested and helped me build mine, and built the stock source code I used to build my kernels
he made the MusicMod for FroYo and I have included a themed version for download with my ROM
he made the 720p Youtube I used in my ROM

*Kernel & Ramdisk
Built using linaro's android-toolchain v4.6

Undervolt support for all frequencies(Working but me and my brother need to tweak it to get it to work with his Control Freak app we will be using along with this kernel)
Sio and v(r) I/O schedulers, with v(r) set to default. No-op and deadline are also included

Removed init.qcom.post_boot.sh service from the initram so no more worrying about your CPU governor and min frequency not sticking

I/O schedulers tweaked for NAND memory devices
Page table optimizations(thanks to spica234)
SPINLOCK optimization(thanks to spica234)

***IF YOU ARE COMING FROM A CM7/CM9/MIUI BASED ROM, FLASH THE STOCK OR STOCK DEODEXED ROM FROM THE DOWNLOADS PRIOR TO FLASHING MY ROM!!!***
**MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP PRIOR TO STARTING THE INSTALLATION PROCEDURE AS A FAILSAFE***
Download the bROM_Prep_ROM & the bROM_v1.1 zip from the Downloads page and place them on your SD card
Boot into Recovery Mode(Must have a CWM Recovery installed!)
**THE NEXT STEP WILL WIPE ALL USER DATA FROM PHONE**
Flash the bROM_Prep_ROM
(This deodexes your system and wipes data to prepare for a clean ROM install, If you flashed the Stock Deodex ROM, you don't have to install the prep ROM and can move straight to the ROM install)
Boot the phone up and allow it to fully boot on the bROM_Prep_ROM
Reboot back into Recovery Mode
Flash the bROM_v1.2 zip, DO NOT WIPE ANYTHING, and reboot the phone to enjoy the epicness
**NOTES ABOUT bROM INSTALL** I do not recommend restoring the data from another ROM install(Even stock based ROMs) as this may cause FC's and undesirable performance. Restoring data from a CM or MIUI build will most undoubtedly mess things up. If you want to back up app data and restore it, use Titanium Backup or something similiar. AND ONCE MORE, NEVER WIPE DATA ON THIS ROM!!!
**IT IS BEST TO START OVER FROM A CLEAN SLATE ON THIS ROM FOR BEST PERFORMANCE**
**INDIVIDUAL APP DATA CAN BE BACKED UP WITH TITANIUM BACKUP IF NEEDED!!!**
**NOTE*** Wiping data will most undoubtedly cause a bootloop. It's best to make a nandroid backup right after flashing the ROM and allowing it to boot so that you can wipe data and then do an advanced restore and restore the data back before booting!! ONCE bROM FILES HAVE BEEN FLASHED TO PHONE, DO NOT WIPE DATA, TO FACTORY RESET, EITHER FLASH THE STOCK ROM OR FLASH THE bROM PREP ROM TO WIPE DATA!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE DONE WILL USING MY ROM. ALSO DO NOT RUN AT HIGH FREQUENCIES(ESPECIALLY ABOVE 1500 MHz!) FOR PROLONGED PERIODS OF TIME, THIS CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE CPU!!
*Some things to remeber:
To use the lbstestmode app you must use LP or AnyCut to make a shortcut to the lbstestmode activity. From there you can set the default gps state to MS based. Some users have confirmed this to help with GPS woes.
To undervolt, use Incredicontrol, a free app on the market!
If you have a mass of alog and plog and other log files in /data(which shouldn't happen to bad on this ROM), open up a terminal emulator, and request root permissions( su ), then type rmlogs and hit enter. This will clear out the log files from /data!
This ROM should be compatiable with just about any MOD available out there for FroYo ROMs. If you have a specific MOD that don't work with my ROM, let me know and I will try to fx the issues!
If you are having FC's or lagging issues, first go back and say, "Did I follow all of b_randon14's directions verbatim when installing?" If you answered yes, then we have some real issues, If you answered no, then maybe you should follow my instructions better to produce the best outcome of this ROM, trust me I know what I'm doing
If you have any bug reports, please post them in this thread or pm them to me!!
