Here is an Android 4.4.2 KitKat rooted firmware for the PiPO M7 PRO (aka Max-M7pro) tablet. This custom firmware is based on an update dated 2014/02/12.  GPS support is expected to be working. I have tested a few minutes, found 1 satellite but haven't obtained a fix yet.

Custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU version 1.93 (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)
  • temporary fix for multi-user support, thanks to didierm
  • 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

Download: kasty-pipo-m7_pro-442-20140212-rooted4.zip

Flash with Rockchip Batch Tool version 1.7, use Restore button.

 

This firmware was successfully flashed on a PiPO M7 Pro, thanks sclstore.fr for the test Pipo M7 Pro device.

are you sure GPS is supported ?

I don't see any satellite ... 

Should I have to switch on something ?

(I've switched on GPS in settings->location)

modify build.prop ?

Is update_GPS_4.4_20140212.img missing ?

I am not sure of anything, I just mentioned I got 1 sat. but no fix during my test, I haven't tested any further yet.

The img file listed in post#1 is the name of the stock firmware just for reference.

 

Cheers.

Hey admin,

Will this work on proline L10A1G. It also uses rk3188 chipset. If not, is there any rom that would work with it that has 3G?

Hi Mr Admin,

 

thx again for this custom firmware.

Would it be possible to have an option to get a partition of 4,8 or 16 Gb ?

I need 8 Gb to convert everything to ART (I have many apps, around 2Gb with Dalvik but the need is > 4 Gb for ART)

 

Thx !

Our custom firmware is already set for a 4 Gb apps (/data partition)

I already commented in our forum that this value will soon be increased in our custom firmwares, probably at least to 6 Gb, maybe 8 Gb, depending on what most users require. This should be in effect for our next custom firmware builds.

I am also thinking of a procedure to let users choose the size they want in a list of few presets, this currently require some work and I will post later when something is available for testing.

 

Cheers.

Perfect !

If it's too hard to code the procedure, may be could you release 2 firmwares: one for 4Gb partition, the other one for 8Gb ....

 

Thx again for everything

A custom firmware should be published later today, with bigger storage space for apps (at least 6 GB, maybe 8 GB)
