Shane ported the MIUI custom ROM to the Motorola Triumph android phone. It was used as the daily operating system for over five thousand Motorola Triumph phone owners. (Link)
Before the Motorola Triumph was fully unlocked. Shane made and released a ROM to the public called: "Princely ROM." This ROM was based on the stock operating system that came with the Motorola Triumph. It included extra operating system features, speed improvements, battery life improvements, and several unique visual themes. Each variant of his Princely ROM received thousands of downloads. (Link)
To accompany his MIUI ROM port, Shane released an Android kernel for the Motorola Triumph. It was based on the stock operating system kernel that came with the phone, as well as multiple open source kernels. It, along with his MIUI ROM, was then ported by other developers of similar devices. (Link)
