    Thank you for your reply and I'm really happy that this helped someone  :D . I will be posting the ROMS soon :) .
     
    Please take note that flashing these might brick your device :excl: . Even though they're basically the same phones, the original Q1000 and the OHD2.0 (rebranded) have differences and the ROMS I will be posting are for/ported for the OHD2.0. And one more danger is that I have no idea what build number (Build 7/Build 49) should be used for the original Q1000. But the only difference so far in my experience regarding Build 7 and 49 ROMS are their boot.img. So I guess you should extract the boot.img of YOUR phone and replace the one in the ROM with it. Although I am not exactly sure if it would work and THERE WILL STILL BE HAZARDS :excl: .
     
    Please "up" my post if it helped you (in this case it did) it really helps me a lot. Thank you  :D

    [Device][Guide][Root][CWM][ROM] Cherry Mobile OMEGA HD 2.0 (rebranded Xolo Q1000)
    OMEGA HD 2.0                            XOLO Q1000
     
    Device Information:
    The OMEGA HD 2.0 is a 5" smartphone by the local Philippine mobile phone brand, Cherry Mobile. It is simply a rebranded Xolo Q1000. Its specifications are completely the same as the Q1000 except for the camera resolution. Even though the OHD2 is said to have a 12MP camera it only has an 8MP one which is interpolated to capture a 12MP image. You may also notice that the OHD2 is labelled to have a qHD screen on the brand's website but this is false as the OMEGA HD 2.0 is indeed HD.
     
    Specifications:
    Operating System: Android Jellybean 4.2.1
    Chipset: MTK 6589
    CPU: 1.2 GHz Quad Core MT6589
    GPU: PowerVR SGX544
     
    Memory: 4GB ROM (1GB Internal Memory, 1GB Phone Storage/Internal SD Card, remaining for misc partitions)
    1GB RAM
    Micro-SD card, up to 32GB
     
    Display: IPS LCD Capacitive Touchscreen
    720 x 1280 pixels, 5.0", ~294ppi
    5 point Multitouch
     
    Primary Camera: 12.6MP, 4096 x 3072 pixels, Interpolated
    LED Flash, Autofocus
    1080p video recording @ 30fps
     
    Secondary Camera: 1.9MP 1600 x 1200 pixels
     
    Battery: Li-on 2100 mAh
     
    Dual SIM
    SIM1 - 2G, 3G
    SIM2 2G only
     
    More Information:
    Because the OHD2 has a Mediatek Chipset it does not have that much freedom for development of custom ROMS because Mediatek does not provide device source codes openly unlike Qualcomm and a few others. Although some source codes have been released for the MTK 6589, there isn't seem to be much interest in developing custom ROMS like Cyanogenmod or AOKP for this phone or any other Mediatek phones. But because a lot of devices share the same Chipset as the OHD2 many have ported ROMS from these devices to this phone.
     
    The OHD2 also has 2 build numbers, 49 and 7. These can be found in the "About phone" option in "Settings". The build number is crucial when flashing ROMS because some ROMS cannot support both builds.

    Nice job fixing the white texture bug. :) I though it was just my IO scheduler (noop) so I switched to sio but still had the problem. Anyway, why did you disable HW Acceleration on the Lockscreen? :mellow:

    well that was unnecessarily offensive. I just ASKED for a simple (or so it seems) fix that's all, but yeah I already reverted back to CM10 (cont. by daemond) and still suffer the same issues. Why do these new ROMS not feature nav bar resizing, why? :(
