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 pro tablet to test the custom firmware.

I wish I could, but I haven't seen a revision history of the official firmware 2013/10/15 update from PiPO so I don't know what they have changed. I cant even check and test the firmware myself as I don't have an M6 Pro tablet
With October update, some Pipo M9 pro users mentioned a better working WiFI.
Not sure I remember... if it's about overclockable kernel, I still need to experiment with that on other devices.
I'll post updates if there is anything new.

I'm actually impressed with the latest firmware. It seem more snappy and I also achieved a score of 19,135 with Antutu Benchmark which is at least 1,000 points more than previous benchmarks on older releases.
The only problem I ran into is that the launcher restarted itself while doing Play Store updates but other than that, very pleased. Will report any further glitches. Cheers
Could someone do a read me file on how to flash the rom using rockchip batch tool v1.7. I just got it wrong and bricked me m6 pro 3g wifi gps.
Thanks in advance.

We have a more up to date flashing tutorial in the works, I was we could get more help on these documenting tasks from the community...
I agree it's a waste of time. I am trying to reinstall rileyrom 1.2 for my pipo m6 pro 3g but it won't let me do it for some reason rocksub recognizes my device but then when i try and reboot to flash it says "device canot do switch, because of no drive" i have installed the correct drivers for my computer, i want to reflash as the gps has stopped working.
I am actually looking into disabling OTA in this custom firmware so there is little or no risk to run the update by mistake. I'll post updates when it's ready.
My experience is that notes are not always enough for everyone and it's always good to have some extra protection when possible
