Here is an Android 4.4.2 KitKat rooted firmware for the PiPO M7 PRO (aka Max-M7pro) for both WiFI only and 3G models. This custom firmware is based on a PiPO update dated 2014/03/26 featuring small changes on the Android system and a kernel identical to previous 2014/03/06 firmware.

 
(M7 pro 3G & NO 3G Chinese 4.4 20140326.rar / M7 pro 3G & NO 3G Chinese 4.4 20140326.img)

Build information:

Linux Kernel: Linux version 3.0.36+ (root@lzj-desktop) (gcc version 4.6.x-google 20120106 (prerelease) (GCC) ) #172 SMP PREEMPT Wed Mar 5 11:03:34 CST 2014

Android 4.4.2: rockchip/rk3188/rk3188:4.4.2/KOT49H/eng.root.20140326.162553:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys

ro.rksdk.version=RK30_ANDROID$(PLATFORM_VERSION)-SDK-v1.00.00

RK3188Loader(L)_V2.10.bin
 
 

Custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU version 2.00 (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 7 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

Sorry for the late reply.

 

This ROM flashed without problems and seems to be stable so thanks.

I would like to request that any future ROM kernel be compiled with /proc/mic_level so recording level can be adjusted. At the moment it suffers from very bad clipping and distortion making recording simple videos with sound impossible. I cant see any way of using an external mic to correct this problem.

 

Many thanks.

RAR file ? The file we offer for download is a zip archive !

You can try to download it again, use another mirror from the server list on the download page.

If it still doesn't work, please post the filename you are downloading and the size of the downloaded file on your computer.

 

Cheers.

Hi, I just downloaded "kasty-pipo-m7_pro-442-20140306-rooted7.zip". I never did the root of the Android device, so I put the unzipped file "update.img" to the MicroSD card. When I return the card back, it asked me, if I want to make an update. I chose "Yes". It started to update the device, however then the screen turned off itself, and now I'm not able to do anything with my tablet - I'm not able to turn it on. (I tried also to charge the device, however nothing happend.) Could you please a bit help me? [Yes, yes, I'm stupid, I was used to simply jailbreak my iPhone and I didn't expect this problem with Android :)  ]

chudst, hi.

 

Try re-flashing it but this time use the Rockchip Batch Tool which is linked on the download. Its fairly simple to do but read the instructions as you will need to use the reset pinhole on the tablet.

 

Hope that helps.

We have NOT sanction the update of Kasty ROM through SDCard. Where did you read the instructions to update the original RK firmware through SDCard method??. We use the BatchTool (ony version BatchTool 1.7 can work on JB and KitKat version). Admin has put up a clear instructions up there and never once did he says to update through SDCard. CONGRATS You are now "softbricked". Please read in previous posting around Jan/Feb this year for how to flash in a "softbrick" situation. May be if you are lucky you can just flash it straight away using RKBatchTool (if you are lucky).

If not you will need an extra finger to press 3 buttons on the PiPo to get it to flash.Next time dont DO THIS, READ INSTRUCTIONS in PLAIN ENGLISH CAREFULLY!

You have too much customs ROM experience that can only be flashed through CWM/TWRP Recoveries??But this is the original factory "Xyz123.img" format. Even the factory instructed to use RKBatchTool.But when using RKBatchTool use "DOWNLOAD" buttons instead of "UPGRADE" button (dont tell us that you didnt get this instructions later on)

Thanks, both of you. However still it didn't help.

Cracktech: Sorry, I've no idea what topic do you think: I tried to find it, but I didn't found this in M7 forum. I tried to connect Pipo via USB with my laptop. I hear a sound (from laptop - just like when you connect a new device), in Device Manager is displayed "Unknown device" now. But when I turn on Rockchip Batch Tool, I don't see any connected device. (I tried to press with various combination the Power & Esc & Reset button, nothing happend.) Yes, I know I'm the new one here - sorry, I really had no idea, that admin has put up a clear instructions up there: but I just don't see them in M7 forum.
