    According to my information there is one Application called as
    GingerBreak used for this purpose that you have to install if you want
    to Root your Motorola Triumph, so for that first go to the download for
    that application if it is not there in your Motorola, after getting that
    application just install it and when you open that application you will
    see the option for the root, and there you have to click for the Root
    Option if you want to Root your Motorola Triumph.
