Here is an Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean rooted firmware for the PIPO M9 (aka Max-M9) tablet based on latest official update from Pipo dated 2013/05/16

(M9_update_20130516_Android4.2_No3G#79.rar)

 

Kernel: Linux version 3.0.36+ (root@lzj-desktop) (gcc version 4.6.x-google 20120106 (prerelease) (GCC) ) #79 SMP PREEMPT Wed May 15 09:12:15 CST 2013

Android 4.2.2 JB: rk30sdk/rk30sdk/rk30sdk:4.2.2/JDQ39/eng.ljh.20130426.105106:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys

 

Custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU version 1.25 (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

Download: kasty-pipo-m9_ds1006-422-20130516-rooted0.zip

Flash with Rockchip Batch Tool version 1.6, use Restore button.

 

I have tested this firmware on a Pipo M9 and I just wanted to confirm it works just fine :)

Please report any problem with this firmware, I can’t verify this custom firmware works as I don’t have a PIPO M9 MAX tablet to test the custom firmware.  There have been some problems reported with our PIPO M9 custom firmwares in the past, we hope the firmware is fixed now. If there are problems with this custom firmware, we’ll work on fixing them as soon as possible.

Is the tun.ko module included in this custom?

I need to use Anyconnect Cisco Vpn or OpenVpn to connect to my office vpn and it seems that the tun.ko module is not present in the preloaded firmware.

I know that the tun module can be compiled from the kernel source, but I can’t find the Kernel source used in the Pipo M9 tablet…. :-(

It’s not built in, I’m currently looking to compile a few modules for Linux Kernel 3.0.36 used on this tablet and a few other RK3188 based devices. I’ll post when it’s ready.

If you want to help or have a look, there’s a kernel here from our friends of Crew RKTablets:

I found these useful links for compiling the kernel with the module TUN enabled : http://www.ostalks.com/2011/03/21/how-to-compile-tun-ko-for-android-commtiva-z71/

and http://stevechui.blogspot.com/2011/10/compiling-kernel-modules-tunko-for.html

 

As I’m a windows user I will try to install a windows crosscompiler to do this and let you know what…:-)

Just a quick update on post #1 as I can now confirm this custom firmware works just fine, I have tested it on a Pipo M9 tablet.

Cross compiling is fine, but if you want to work on a Windows environment, you’d probably save yourself some time by setting up an Ubuntu system in a virtual machine, virtualbox is perfect for that.

Does it mean things such as overclocking the CPU would be possible in the (near) future?

Theoretically yes, but I have some doubt as the Rockchip recently changed their RK3188 specs to 1.6 GHz frequency and I’ve never seen a RK3188 CPU clocked at 1.8 GHz so far, these may not be stable enough at that speed.

Thanks. Yeah I see in its website, Rockchip states 1.6GHz as the max. The wiki however still states 1.8GHz max frequency. Nevertheless, I hope the release of this kernel source would bring further improvement to other aspects of the FW.

Thanks a lot for your links and advice. I compiled the module and got a tun.ko that is working fine for me with Cisco Anyconnect Vpn. :-)

Got virtualbox from your link, got a Unbuntu VM from here : http://virtualboxes.org/images/ubuntu/ ,

got the latest Kernel source from your link, got a arm crosscompiler from here : https://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded

I changed the .config file included in the rk3188 kernel source (under the Linux3188-master folder) :

  •  CONFIG_CROSS_COMPILE=”arm-none-linux-gnueabi-“
  •  CONFIG_LOCAL_VERSION=”+”
  •  #CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is not set
  •  CONFIG_TUN=m

I changed the setlocalversion script located in the script folder under the Linux3188-master folder

locate the following line:

if $short; then

     echo “+”

  • change echo “+” to echo “”

I changed the path environment variable to include the crosscompiler path :

  • “export PATH=$PATH:~/path to the crosscompiler binaries”

I set the environment properties for the compiler

  • export ARCH=arm

And then compile the modules:

  • go to “Linux3188-master” directory
  • run “make modules”

The tun.ko will be located in drivers/net directory.

I copy back this file to the tablet (root folder of the sdcard), open a terminal on the tablet and run : su insmod /sdcard/tun.ko

Then the module is loaded. This last operation must be done after each time the device is rebooted.
