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