Here is an Android 4.4.2 KitKat rooted firmware for the PiPO M8HD based on an update (not yet released) from PiPO dated 2014/01/13. 
(1009_4.4_update_20140113.img / M8HD_1009_4.4_update_20140113.zip)
 
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 Sat Jan 11 10:54:57 CST 2014

Android 4.4.2: rockchip/rk3188/rk3188:4.4.2/KOT49H/eng.root.20140113.153506:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys

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

 

 

Custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU version 1.86 (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
  • added Google Experience Launcher (GEL) in addition to PiPO's stock launcher
  • disabled OTA updates (may cause problems, see Notes below)
  • 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.

 

Download: kasty-pipo-m8_hd-442-20140113-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 M8HD tablet to test the custom firmware.

I don't think PiPO specified the M8 HD firmware is for WiFI AND 3G models, but it was the same for their KitKat firmware on the M6 pro and M9 pro and the firmware were reported to work on the 3G model too.

Cheers.

ritterchen,

Most early KitKat firmwares for RK3188 like this one have some display glitches. I'm sure it will be fixed in future and more mature firmwares.

Is root working for you on the KitKat firmware ? I am surprised about stassen feedback above, I double checked and everything should be in place in our custom firmware to have root working like our other KitKat firmwares.

 

Cheers.

Hello, I saw over at freaktab.com some kernel patches, manly for 4.1/4.2, however maybe you can incorperate them into the KitKat kernel?  Thanks.
