This ArcTools package helps to enable multiple users accounts on your Android system. It requires a device running Android 4.2 with root access.

 

Quick usage instructions:

  1. Start ArcTools application, it should be installed if you are running our kasty custom firmware, otherwise you can download latest update here: com.arctablet.arctools.apk
  2. Select "Enable multi-user (Android 4.2 or newer system required)"  in the packages list.
  3. Press Download button, wait for the quick download to complete
  4. Press Install apps button. 
    You'll have to Grant access to ArcTools when you get a SuperUser request, this is required to allow copying system files. After the script has run, wait a few seconds and reboot your tablet.
  5. After your device has restarted, it should allow multi-user accounts for up to 5 usersWink
  6. To add new users, please select Settings then Users menu, you should have

This package has been tested successfully on a few tablets based on Rockchip RK3066 processor, it should work on most Rockchip devices (including RK3188 based models).

As usual, please note this package does simple system file modifications but may not be compatible with your particular device, use at your own risk.

Please let us know how it works for you, thanks in advance for your feedback.

ohh No Works correctly in Pipo M7 Pro NO 3G! :(

 

Install App correctly, restart, and apper the USERS option in settings menu.

And I press  "add user" and appers a Alert window, i say YES and the Pipo sesion reboot instantly.

In new "welcome" screen appers 2 users, if i select the new user appers a black screen with a text "com.android.provision.DefaultActivity" and secons past appers a new Alert Window "Close or wait the com.android.provision.DefaultActivity" I press (close / Wait) and same past minuts and no running.

If i close with fisic button , its posible enter with the primary user and delete the wrong.

This may be a side effect of enabling multi-users on a system that is not exactly designed for it.

I don't have a Pipo M7 device to test the problem but I'll see if I can reproduce the problem on another tablet...

Cheers.

futzmaster mentioned in another topic that removing provision.apk file in /system/app directory may help fixing the multi-user issue. Please let me if it works for you, so I can add that in ArcTools package.

Cheers.

Hello, to delete the application "provision.apk" Fixed access to the user's account, but does not work very well:

- You can change the wallpaper of the new user.
- The photo album / videos are shared

I read in another forum that to work the multiuser in PIPO, you also duplicate the contents of the main user folder to the folder of the secondary.
This is not because they've proven not find that folder (I'm waiting for response)

Today we have taken a step forward!

thank you!

I try this:

To copy the data you need to go to the folder / data / system / users

and copy the folder 0 (fixed which is a folder) to the new folder for the new user, it will be a larger number, such as 10.
Copy only the content.

Restart.

Then reported.

Well, this last has made no effect.

In short:

Applying ArcTools + provision.apk erasing we create and enter a new user session.

The cons:
The gallery of images / videos is shared.
You can change the wallpaper of the new user. (Yes if either animated) ¿?

 

but! The Multiuser WORKS!!!! ThankYou !

Multiuser tested on iFive 2S HD and doesn't work. System goes to infinite reboot loop after selecting new user and trying to log in.

epsilon79,

There are issues with multi-user on current KitKat firmware, it's not recommended to use it at the moment. 

These problems come from the manufacturer's firmware, hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Cheers.
