I've tried this briefly. The first thing I notice is the "ask product key" message pops up on startup and it continually harass you afterwards. Hopefully it can be removed completely on your next build

Thanks. Just an update, I uninstall Certificate Center via Titanium Backup and it seems OK, no more popup and hopefully does not break anything else :D

Hi there, since we are discussing the Pipo M9, I hope you won't mind me going a little OT here? My question is whether flashing this ROM will make it any easier to flash a custom recovery, because I have already flashed a custom ROM, but despite being able to do Onandroid backups I cannot access CWM Recovery, so it is pretty useless to me, and given the difficulty in physically accessing recovery on this device I am now really nervous about being able to recover from a disastrous event.

I would really appreciate the benefit of your expertise here - if I knew precisely how to use the RK tool just to flash recovery that would already be a real step forward, but Fun's instructions for flashing CWM are not sufficiently in depth, and I believe that many Rockchip 3188 device owners have been left high and dry on this issue.

Thanks in advance ;)

Yes, it will make it easier because you can use adb shell to sideload the recovery.

Thank you. I believe I have the adb tools sdk installed, but have no idea how to use adb shell - care to enlighten me?

Try to google a little bit :)
In big lines, adb shell is the command line from inside the android. (similar to the terminal app from ubuntu, or commander from windows)

Copy the recovery to the sdcard
the commands should be similar the the fallowings
adb remount
adb shell
su
cat /proc/mtd (keep an eye on the values from here)
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mtdblockX (X is the number of the block where the recovery is, you will find the number of the block with the cat /proc/mtd)

The following users say thank you to globula_neagra for this useful post:

You wouldn't believe how many tabs are open in my browser right now! Coming from the world of Cyanogen Mod on the Samsung Galaxy this learning curve just wasn't necessary - it was relatively simple to flash everything from within recovery, but this Pipo system with no volume up/down keys is making what should be simple into a nightmare! 

Otherwise it is a wonderful device compared to that SGA.

To the root of the card?

adb remount
adb shell
su
cat /proc/mtd (keep an eye on the values from here)
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mtdblockX (X is the number of the block where the recovery is, you will find the number of the block with the cat /proc/mtd)

 

Thank you, I'll try this ;)

OK, I finally managed to sort out the issue with CWM.  The version that I flashed had the DPI set too high so that the touch screen was not synchronized to the menu on the screen. I was surprised at how small the fonts were with the new version, as well as by how responsive it was now to touch. So that is a real relief to be able to access and exit recovery mode.

The next issue I need to sort out is how to flash build prop scripts - any ideas? When I make any changes to the build prop scripts, they are lost once I reboot. I am trying to usevthe tweaks in Pimp My ROM.

Use an application from Google Market or, extract the build.prop to your pc, use a text editor like TextPad, save what you want, re-push the file to the tablet, setting the appropriate permissions.
