Thanks for the ROM.

Flashed it twice.

Problems: Wifi will not turn on and bluetooth won't find any devices?

The rest seems to be working, but the above is pretty essential.

So I guess I'll go back to Jelly Bean and wait for the next Kit Kat update. 

Cheers.

Hello Q,

I can't comment on Bluetooth and I don't have a M6 Pro anymore to check but WiFI was reported to work on this firmware release. Are you sure you flashed on a PiPO M6 Pro tablet ? Have you used Restore button in Rockchip Batch Tool ?

Cheers.

Hi there,

Thanks for the quick response.

With all the confusion regarding M6 Pro and M6 3G with nearly the same specs and design (I have the latter) I just thought I'd give this ROM a go. It seemed pretty ok, despite the WIFI issue (and the BT for that matter).

Used the restore button as well. 

Now I have some other problems to attend to ... cause I think I accidentally hit the upgrade button, instead of the Restore, in my attempt to flash the jelly bean based kasty-pipo-m6-422-20131227-rooted4 ROM. Everything was going as planned ... but with my back turned away for a second ... the batch tool window had suddenly closed and the tablet was totally dead. (pretty weird)

I will not use the word "bricked", cause it's a Pipo :-) ... but I guess I need to somehow follow these instructions http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/pipo-max-m9/need-help-with-bricked-pipo-m9-pro/page-2/  ??

Any suggestions?

I don't know your exact situation, but would like to suggest to try Riley's ROM instead of the factory one.

I had the same problem not with this rom have not used it yet, but one morning it was working fine within a couple of hours the wifi stop working as you described and could connect with bluetooth but nothing happens, had to send back to pipo for repairs as the mainboard WiFi/Bluetooth chip had problems, they replaced i think the mainboard as the backcase is the same, have not pulled it apart to check if anything else has been replaced. Hope that helps also it happened about the same time August 2014 was a 6 week turn around just got it back 1 week ago seems fine except 1 speaker is down a small problem possible just not connected will check when it stuffs up again.

I installed the "kasty-pipo-m6_pro-442-20140213-rooted4_mu" and it works very well and it helps a lot the tablet.

Unfortunately I found 3 issue for which I would like to have feedback:

- Miracast on TV does not work: when I select the device from the list, the tablet crash and reboot

- GPS: does not work at all

- YouTube miracast: it starts working then stop and reboot the tablet.

 

Someone can help me on this?

 

Thank you

Hello,

Thanks for your feedback. I think the manufacturers Android 4.4 Kitkat firmwares for RK3188 devices such as the PiPO M6 Pro have similar issues to what you reported. Manufacturers won't likely provide better updates or support these "old" devices anymore.

Best option is probably to flash back a more reliable Android 4.2 firmware.

There is also the alternative to try custom Android 4.4 firmwares from the CrewRKTablets, see this section in the forum:

http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/crewrktablets-rk3188-entwicklung-customroms-development-croms/

I haven't tested Miracast features with these firmwares so I can't confirm it's working, but I may give it a try on my PiPO M9 pro in a couple of days.

Cheers.

Hi, I have an app "TIMVISION" which does not work because the tablet is root, how can I solve it? How can I unroot the device?

 

Please give suggestion.

 

Thank you

Hello enricogreco,

In SuperSU application, check in the Settings, you should have a "Full unroot" option that lets you remove an installed root permanently.
