Hello Guys, I just want to share my new article about on “How To Root Cherry Mobile Omega HD.” Cherry Mobile Omega HD is 1 of the latest Cherry Mobile 5″ HD 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 1280×720 IPS capacitive touchscreen, with Dragon Trail Glass Technology and improved 2,100mAh battery capacity. Actually I saw this rooting procedure in Facebook group shared by Clifford Cabauatan, so I gave all credits to him and also to that group. Before that please read first the warning message and tips below.

What is rooting?

  • It is a process to access the file system or let say there are files that needs a root privilege to run that files in Android Smartphone device. In laymans term “parang buko pag nakita mo ang buko normal lang na may sabaw at laman, pero sa iba may ibang bagay pa ito na magagawa ex. uling, bunot, langis at iba pa.” (source: tipidcp.com)

Tips:

For those who are planning to buy Omega HD or even any CM units, make sure that always check the screen if there’s a dead pixel or stuck pixel on phone screen because all we know that rooting voids phone warranty so please check it first.
