Here is latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat rooted firmware for the PiPO M9 (aka Max-M9) tablet.
This firmware based on latest update from PiPO dated 2014/06/04.
Please note this firmware is designed for the older M9 model (1280x800 display) and is not compatible with the newer PiPO M9 Pro models.

 
(update_DS1006_4.4_20140604.rar)
 
pipo_m6_pro_android442_kitkat_2014013_kitkat_b.png
 

Build information:

Linux Kernel: Linux version 3.0.36+ (root@lzj-desktop) (gcc version 4.6.x-google 20120106 (prerelease) (GCC) ) #40 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 3 16:19:18 CST 2014

Android 4.4.2: rockchip/rk3188/rk3188:4.4.2/KOT49H/eng.root.20140604.100616:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys

ro.rksdk.version=RK30_ANDROID$(PLATFORM_VERSION)-SDK-v1.00.00

RK3188Loader(L)_V2.10.bin
 
 

Custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU version 1.99r3 (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
  • increased space for applications (/data partition) to 4 GB
  • disabled OTA updates (may cause problems, see Notes below)
  • added Google Experience Launcher (GEL) in addition to PiPO's stock launcher
  • use optional package to fix broken apps (Contacts/People and Calendar sync)
  • temporary fix for multi-user support, thanks to didierm
  • kernel modules (cifs, tun, lan, serial, xpad) compiled by Oma & Crew RKTablets, thank guys!
  • optional ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery easy install package 

 

Notes: 

- you should get an error saying "E:failed to mount /metadata (Invalid argument)" on first boot, you should have no problem ignoring the message.

- any update received thru OTA may interfere with our custom firmware, we recommend to refuse any update pushed OTA.

 

Download: kasty-pipo-m9-442-20140604-rooted4_mu.zip

Flash with Rockchip Batch Tool version 1.7, use Restore button.

If you like our work, please support us to keep the site alive and contribute to our efforts.
 

 

Please report any problem with this firmware, I can't verify this custom firmware works as I don't have a PIPO M9 tablet to test the custom firmware.

If you later want to downgrade and flash an Android 4.2 (or older) firmware, please follow this tutorial.

 

Thanks mattiesragWink

As I wrote on Facebook of PIPO

I installed this version now 
And still have a problem with Hebrew and Arabic (RTL) 
I get error "Unfortunately, System UI has stopped." 

Is there a patch for this problem? 
Thanks Yossi

yossiv69,

Can you confirm you are flashing this firmware on the PiPO M9 (Max-M9) and not a M9 Pro ?

Cheers.

I have a tablet-type M9 PRO MAX PIPO
I managed to fix the problem after I installed 10 times in different versions
I returned to version 4.2.2 and everything worked
Then again I installed the latest version before 4.4.2 you have posted on the forum

This version

We are writing it one more time, the firmware in this topic is for the PiPO M9 (Max) and is not designed for the PiPO M9 Pro. If you have a M9 Pro, don't flash it and use a M9 Pro firmware in from this forum section.

Just installed this ROM, seems very promising. Copying files by USB is much faster than on 4.2.2 and the tablet doesn't freeze up completely when installing/updating apps.

Downloaded sucessfully and it seems to be working great. Is the kernel for the kitkat update available as a single download, i would like to overclock the cpu speed in my tablet.

Thanks for your hard work.

Hi,
      I had the same problem too.  Later found out that this ROM is not for all PiPO M9 units.  Some units (older I presume) have single NAND flash chip.  Now your only option to revive your tablet is as follows:

1. Open back cover
2. Connect charger to tablet, press power key and connect USB cable to computer
3. After you see RkAndroid Loader device found in RKAndroidTool, with power key pressed short pints 8 and 9 on the Intel NAND flash chip4. Once the display shows RKAndroid maskrom device found in RKAndroidTool, Erase IDB
5. Then flash any other ROM to get back tablet to life.

I have the same problem.
I followed step 1 and 2.
Should I see RkAndroid Loader device found in RKAndroidTool before I short pints 8 and 9?
In RKAndroidTool I see: "No Found RKAndroid rock usb".
What do I do wrong?
