Here is an Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean rooted firmware for the PIPO M7 Pro tablet based on an update dated 2014/02/19. This firmware should work on both 3G and WiFI M7 Pro models.

( M7pro#128_892_new_ui_ZH_20140219.img )

 

Build information:

Kernel: Linux version 3.0.36+ (root@alex-System-Product-Name) (gcc version 4.6.x-google 20120106 (prerelease) (GCC) ) #128 SMP PREEMPT Wed Feb 19 14:18:09 CST 2014

Android 4.2.2 JB: rk30sdk/rk30sdk/rk30sdk:4.2.2/JDQ39/eng.root.20140219.142118:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys

ro.rksdk.version=RK30_ANDROID4.2.2-SDK-v1.00.00

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)
  • kernel modules (cifs, tun, lan, serial, xpad) compiled by Oma &¬†Crew RKTablets, thank guys!
  • NEW!¬†:¬†optional¬†ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery easy install package

 

Notes: 

- any update received thru OTA may interfere with our custom firmware, we recommend not to apply any OTA update

- I have left some tiny Chinese bits in the custom firmware (in Weatherforecast widget) it shouldn't bother you much.

 

Download: kasty-pipo-m7_pro-422-20140219-rooted4.zip

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

Warning: if you are currently running an Android 4.4 KitKat firmware and wish to flash to this Android 4.2 Jelly firmware, you may face some troubles downgrading. If you are not sure how to handle that, we recommend that you wait until this procedure gets properly documented.

 

I flashed this firmware and verified it is working on a PiPO M7 pro test device (thanks sclstore.fr) Unfortunately, I don't have much time for extensive tests on this new firmware release, users feedback is welcome.

thanks so much, just flashed my PIPO M7 Pro 3Gby clicking "Restore" to lowerformat and update Android

 

- upgrade procedure works, android boots

- restore procedure is stuck in com.android.provision.DefaultActivity for some time with no response but continues after a few minutes

- google play works

- wifi and 3G both work!

- quick boot option is unavailable! (was available in kasty-pipo-m7_pro-422-ota_106_20131205-rooted4)

 

will go in deep later

 

PS: Win8.1 + rkbatch1.7 still does not allow me to click switch. however, win7 works fine.

I actually noticed the bug with the provision screen at first boot up and had no time to have a closer look yet.

It may be related to the provisionning procedure having an issue due to some Chinese apps removed, it should not be a big deal and the tablet works just fine after the provision screen is skipped and it just affects first boot.

Regarding quickboot, it looks like this firmware doesn't offer the feature anymore.

Cheers.

Hello there. This is a great custom ROM for the PIPO M7. I have tried also RileyROM from FreakTab, but I believe the KastyROM is more responsive. I would like to ask a question regarding Deep Sleep (aka Quick Boot) function. When enabled the tablet goes to Deep Sleep mode and wakes up in 10 seconds, after powered on. The problem is when I try to charge it. As soon as I plug the DC cable, the tablet wakes up with the large green battery charging animated indicator in the center of the screen. The problem is that it stays there all the time, thus the screen never turns off while charging. I have checked the Developer Options for the Stay Awake Option while charging, but it is Unchecked. During Deep Sleep the tablet loses about 1% battery per hour, which is good but it would be ideal if I could leave the table in Deep Sleep connected to the charger, as I use the tablet occasionally. Any ideas would be appreciated.

 

Thank you for your time
