Here is an Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean rooted firmware for the PIPO M8 PRO tablet (3G model) based on latest official update from Pipo dated 2013/06/28

(update_PIPO_M8 pro-3G_EN_2013628.img)

 

Build information: 

Kernel: Linux version 3.0.36+ (root@alex-System-Product-Name) (gcc version 4.4.3 (GCC) ) #117 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jun 28 15:56:00 CST 2013

Custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU version 1.41 (free version)
  • removed most Chinese and unnecessary applications, removed Certificate Center asking for product key
  • 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

Download: kasty-pipo-m8_pro-422-20130628-rooted4.zip

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

 

Please report any problem with this firmware, I can't verify this custom firmware works as I don't have a PIPO M8 PRO tablet to test the custom firmware.

I have used this release for the last 2 weeks.

I cannot test the G3 functions as I don't have a working SIM at this stage, but for all the rest this ROM works very nicely. The only issue I have (lowest illumination too bright) was already on the stock ROM.

Thanks for this excellent custom ROM, one of the rare ones for the 3G version.

BTW: Who is Kasty?
