Gingerbreak is an app developed by XDA-Developer Chainfire who has also brought us quite a few other goods in the past.

Motorola Triumph is one of those devices, so as long as you haven’t done something crazy to the phone and are running Android 2.2 Froyo, this rooting method will work for you like a breeze.
