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.

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.
