Hi admin,

First of all, thanks for continually releasing new custom ROM for this tablet.

I'd like to ask about the new feature: "NEW! kernel modules (cifs, tun, lan, serial, xpad) compiled by Oma & Crew RKTablets". Can you explain what are the advantages of having those kernel modules?

Does it have a feature to connect to ad-hoc WiFi network? I was trying to use my Windows Mobile phone as as a WiFi access point. It creates an adhoc WiFi network and the M9 Max does not recognize it. I've tried searching long and hard but so far I can't find any solution that work on the M9 Max.

The kernel modules provide additional functionality to the tablet like external USB GPS support, CIFS, game controller...  The modules are pre-installed but not loaded by default and can be loaded with the insmod command in an adb console or terminal application. There is partial support in ArcTools for some modules like CIFS. We are working in making a better documentation about the features offered by the kernel modules and how to use them.

 

Enabling ad-hoc connections isn't related to kernel modules. In the past some methods like this one worked but I haven't heard of success on newer models.

 

Cheers.

Thanks admin for the explanation. Although I'm not currently using those features aside from CIFS, it's nice to know that's they're available. Looking forward to the documentation.

About the wpa_supplicant patch, yes I've tried many of them. Unfortunately none of them works on the Max M9. Some will allow me to view the adhoc network but not connect to it.

Btw, I've just read the article relating to RK3188 overclocking at http://www.arctablet.com/blog/featured/rockchip-rk3188-cpu-overclock-to-1-8ghz-up-1-92-ghz-ugoos-ug007b-minipc/. Is there a chance to get this to work on a tablet such as the M9? Are there plans to do it in the future may be?

Overclocking was made possible on some RK3188 based MiniPC because of the source code available that was more or less compatible with the devices. To my knowledge that's not the case for the Pipo tablets. 

It might be possible in the future if some source code that works with the M9 is made available, else that would require some binary patching of the kernel, which isn't the easiest thing.

Cheers.

The overclocking depends on the kernel source files, maybe when the source will appear, some custom kernel will appear also.

Thanks both for your answers. Looking by Pipo's history, I guess I shouldn't hold my breath then :p

Hi there, I have a RILEYROM custom ROM (version 1.7) flashed to my device with a working CWM Touch recovery. My question is whether it is possible to flash this ROM upgrade directly within CWM, or whether I still have to flash externally?

Also is there a further upgrade in the pipeline with multi-window support, and if so what is the ETA? Does anyone know what would be the advantage in upgrading to this version over the ROM I have presently?

Thank you.

This firmware is design to be flashed with Rockchip Batch Tool version 1.7 only, there is no other flashing method. 

I haven't heard about a multi-window version for the PiPO M9, but it would make sense to see an update from PiPO in the coming days/weeks.
