Here is an Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean rooted firmware for the PIPO M6 (3G model) tablet based on latest official update from Pipo released 2013/08/14

( update_M6_3G_20130814.img )

 

Build information:

Kernel: Linux version 3.0.36+ (root@alex-System-Product-Name) (gcc version 4.6.x-google 20120106 (prerelease) (GCC) ) #81 SMP PREEMPT Wed Aug 14 14:33:30 CST 2013

Android 4.2.2 JB: rk30sdk-eng 4.2.2 JDQ39 eng.root.20130814.154159 test-keys

 

Custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU version 1.51 (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
  • NEW! kernel modules (cifs, tun, lan, serial, xpad) compiled by Oma & Crew RKTablets, thank guys!

Download: kasty-pipo-m6_3G-422-20130814-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 M6 tablet to test the custom firmware.

I've tried to connect to server by OpenVpn, but it failed.

It seems like tun.ko doesn't works properly.

 ------------

- On some ICS images the permissoions on /dev/tun might be wrong, or the tun module might be missing completely.

- Cannot open TUN

- Exiting due fatal error

 -------------

 

It seems like tun.ko module is not loaded in kernel.

Thanks for reporting that dem.

I expected the modules to load properly on a stock Pipo kernel. Can you do a dmesg to see if it gives more details about the format error and post the results here ? I'll see if I can fix it...

Cheers.

Problem in version number of kernel.
<3>[48703.918580] tun: version magic '3.0.8+ preemp mod_unload ARMv7 ' should be '3.0.36+ SMP preemp mod_unload ARMv7 '

 

It's hapend for all modules. By the way, if it possible, please add module usbnet.ko and axis.ko!!!

Thanks!

I have rebuilt a custom firmware with modules that should work with Linux 3.0.36+ kernel, these modules were built by Oma & Crew RKTablets as well.

 

New firmware download: kasty-pipo-m6_3G-422-20130814-rooted4b.zip

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

 

I can't test these firmware modifications at the moment as I don't have a RK3188 based tablet, please report how it goes, so I can update the firmware file in post #1 and add the modules on custom firmwares for other tablets as well.

usbnet.ko and axis.ko modules aren't in the package yet, I'll see what can be done.

 

Cheers.

Thank you!  Now modules are loaded correctly by hand. Module axis.ko as I understood is a part of android kernel and my dlink usb->ethernet is working correctly. 

But, I was not able to load modules tun and etc automaticaly!!

I used:

su
touch /system/etc/init.d/01mod
chmod 755  /system/etc/init.d/01mod

But after reboot I did not find tun-module loaded.

Also, there is not file initd.log in /data directory.

What can be a problem?

I think there is no different. Different is in power consumption 3G models.

In my 3G M6 there is some process (Radio Interface Layer for 3G), which does not allow CPU to go into a Deep Sleep state.
