Custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU version 1.91 (free version)
  • removed most Chinese and unnecessary applications
  • Google Play Store fixes so more application are visible/compatible
  • updated busybox v1.21.0.git (2012-11-29)
  • Unix like init.d boot scripts support, more details on init.d scripts here
  • changed permissions on external sdcard to allow write access
  • increased space for applications (/data partition) to 4 GB
  • disabled OTA updates (may cause problems, see Notes below)
  • added Google Experience Launcher (GEL) in addition to PiPO's stock launcher
  • use optional package to fix broken apps (Contacts/People and Calendar sync)
  • kernel modules (cifs, tun, lan, serial, xpad) compiled by Oma & Crew RKTablets, thank guys!
  • optional ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery easy install package 

 

Notes: 

- any update received thru OTA may interfere with our custom firmware, we recommend to refuse any update pushed OTA.

- current KitKat based firmwares should be considered as beta software

Missing GPS support is a common limitation for most if not all currently published KitKat firmwares on PiPO tablets. I suppose this will be fixed in the near future by the manufacturers.

Cheers.

Wifi display (miracast) reboots the tablet when connecting.

I've downgraded my m7pro to 4.2 kasty

I'll try later with the stable release

Hello, I have left this Rom for daily use, is much faster and stable than the official last (4.2).

To my, KitKat is the best, even a beta. I will continue using this (4.4.2 beta) until the final version comes out.

 

One question, can you say the url to download the beta versions of the Pipo firmwares?

 

Thank you.
