Phone Cherry mobile Omega HD (i-mobile IQ6)

Omega HD root
Disclaimer: I will not be liable for bricked devices. Follow these instructions at your own risk. ROOTING VOIDS WARRANTY, as per Cherry Mobile. Please be guided accordingly.

This tutorial is not recommended for newbies. Knowledge of basic adb and fastboot commands is helpful. Better if you have previously installed ADB drivers.

Downloads (http://www.mediafire.com/?ar2ccya8395d1):
SuperSU zip
TWRP
SP Flash Tool
MTK Drivers
MTK 6577 scatter file
if the driver didn't work download this http://www.4shared.com/zip/YXlLFoLm/...l_3_steps.html
install folder step 1 to 3

Place the scatter file and TWRP recovery in the SAME FOLDER.
rename twrp recovery to recovery.img

1. While the phone is still on, enable USB debugging (Settings > Developer options) then plug into PC. Allow drivers to install. Install the MTK drivers as well.

2. Mount phone as USB storage. Copy SuperSU zip to internal or external SD card. Unmount USB storage, then unplug phone from PC.

2. Turn off phone. Remove the battery.

3. Start SP Flash Tool. Under "Scatter-loading," choose the MT6577_Android_scatter_emmc.txt. You will see that RECOVERY has a check beside it. Click on "Download." A warning will appear, proceed anyway.

4. With your phone still off and the battery out, plug it in to the PC. Flashing should start. It will only take a few seconds. You'll see a green circle when it's done.

5. Unplug USB cable and put the battery back.

6. Enter recovery mode by Power and Volume + button. Release both buttons when you see the boot menu. Use Volume + to highlight "recovery." Then use Volume - to confirm.

7. Click "Install." Choose the appropriate tab (internal or external SD card).

8. Select UPDATE-SuperSU-1.25 zip. Swipe to confirm the update. It will flash. Go back to main menu of TWRP.

9. Click "Reboot system." Wait until you are fully booted into your homesceen.

10. Once booted, you should see SuperSU in your app drawer.

Cherry mobile Omega HD info states that its a dual core phone while all info about i-mobile IQ6 states its a single core phone. does anyone know which mediatek chipset the Omega HD uses? It's GPU?

Default How?

How can we flash the CWM to the Omega HD if you don't even give us a flashtool? Is this Rooting process tested? is it working?

Hey guys, if you have FB we have a group with most of oHD users. Just search "CherryMobileOmegaHD" in FB (can't post links yet. sorry)

There are custom roms in the group, the usual rom cooked from dsdixda's kitchen (zipalign, deodexed, rm bloatwares)

@cyzarine

What do you mean with backup? We have the stock rom in the group, you might want to check it out.

-- umm... NO, I DON'T!! There must be a step that's missing... :-S

edit:
nevermind. I forgot to rename TWRP file to "recovery"
Thanks for this!
