Having trouble with the wifi, what do I do?  Everything else seems fine, just wifi doesn't seem stable.

Edit:  Well, found a hardware fix for the wifi on another forum and gave that a shot as I was reading that there is a specific way to downgrade that I couldn't find it.  So did the hardware fix and so far so good, stronger signal than before too.  I'm also now finding out KitKat doesn't have GPS?  I didn't know and hadn't noticed, next update will have it?

I've a lot of WiFi issues too, can you please link me the fix you are using?

Thanks very much!

Hope you know how to solder, http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.php?8568-Pipo-M9-Pro-wifi-antenna-modification-instructions and I would use a real guitar pick to open it as it doesn't leave scratches like the cheap "picks" that come with like phone repair kits.  It's still working great months later, still strong signal and not dropping anymore.

Here is latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat rooted firmware for the PiPO M9 PRO (aka Max-M9pro) tablet based on an update from PiPO dated 2014/05/04.
The fake Linux 3.4.0 version display from previous firmwares has apparently been removed as the Kernel is listed again as 3.0.36.
 
(PiPO M9pro_update_andriod4.4_20140504.img)
 
 
Build information:
Linux Kernel: Linux version 3.0.36+ (root@alex-System-Product-Name) (gcc version 4.6.x-google 20120106 (prerelease) (GCC) ) #407 SMP PREEMPT Sun May 4 11:18:12 CST 2014
Android 4.4.2: rockchip/rk3188/rk3188:4.4.2/KOT49H/eng.root.20140504.171845:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys
ro.rksdk.version=RK30_ANDROID$(PLATFORM_VERSION)-SDK-v1.00.00
 
 
Custom firmware features:
  • root with latest SuperSU version 1.94 (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 7 GB
  • disabled OTA updates (may cause problems, see Notes below)
  • added Google Experience Launcher (GEL) in addition to PiPO's stock launcher
  • temporary fix for multi-user support, thanks to didierm
  • kernel modules (cifs, tun, lan, serial, xpad) compiled by Oma & Crew RKTablets, thank guys!

 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.
- while previous firmwares for the PiPO M9 pro were mosly beta software, it seems this release is one of the first stable KitKat update for the tablet.
 

Download: kasty-pipo-m9_pro-442-20140504-rooted7_mu.zip

You said you somehow corrupted the Systems file, that is the hint to your problems . You some how have to format the system through using other RK flashing Tool try (tools from Freaktab Forum). Reinstall back ALL your Rockchip drivers. and try to flash the ROM again, you can also redownload the ROM one more time (maybe your have a corrupt "update.img" file since it is a big contiguos 400MB file and anything can happen, you dont use dial up ,must use high speed broarband. I had that problem once before I started shouted for help. I redownload and then everything went fine.

Dont use factory ROM ! their downlod speed will take ages and is prone to terminate halfway. I have uploaded drivers for you to reinstall. Apart from that I dont know what else to say, start by formatting the system partition first by using other Rockchip Tools (from FreaktabForum)

@cracktech

Thanks a lot. My problem is solved. Actually it was driver problem. I did following:-

1. Using usbdeview-x64 I uninstalled all the devices concerning my Tablet.

2. Using Universal-USB-Installer-1.9.5.3.exe I installed the drivers.

3. Then I Run RKBatchToolv1.7-with-x64 and the ROM was flashed without any problem.

My gratitude......

Hello @cracktech,
Is it possible to instal DRM WIDEVINE in this tablet?
I can not see the application of TV "Yomvi" of Spain.
Is there any approximate date to have a new ROM?
Thanks.

I can install the YOMVI app even in Malaysia (where I am right now) and can assure you that DRM drivers are present in our M9Pro ROM. The only thing I cant test out is the video playing ok or not because I dont have an account with YOMVI. Maybe you have to enable the DRM line in the build.prop (it is enabled in ALL my build.prop version from phones to tablets). If you want my build.prop file I can give you with DRM enabled better net buffer sizes for Wifi/GPRS/ as I dont use the normal build.prop files given by any factory ROMs/Customs ROM.

Changelog :

Added in build.prop increase net.buffer sizes/power saving/Google signatures for market accessibility/drm enabled/data&mobile enabled/mild performance tweak/network location enabled

Added more permissions and additional tablet core permissions includes gsm enable/wifi enable. Sound effect

Corrected/Updated to SuperSU2.40 with correct daemon/init.d/ ota survival script (can only be seen when using SuperSU Pro) 

This file DO NOT unzip it, just INSTALL the zip through CWM/TWRP. For anybody who wants to use ths zip after INSTALLing zip do a dalvik-cache/cache wipe before REBOOT to SYSTEM.

I installed the zip but I have not gotten results .
With DRM Info app I get the following:
"Available engines:
OMA V1 Forward Lock"
On my mobile Lenovo A806 if I can see Yomvi TV, and with the app DRM Info I get the following:
"Available engines:
Widevine DRM plug-in
OMA V1 dcf"

From what I can ascertain the problem is the absence of Widevine DRM plug-in in this tablet.

Is there a solution? Thanks.

Give me time time to check on my other LENOVO ROMs and compare that to whats is available on the PIPo ROM , I have got 20-30 Lenovo ROMs modded but too bad this part of the world we dont have subscription Mobile Subscription TV only free Internet Tv which is free we can get National Geographic based channels/ Fashion TV/our own country made for internet based channels on LENOVO/PiPO/ASUS/ZENITHINK /and almost all brands without the DRM issues cropping up. So like I said previous I dont know if it works or not since I am not a subscriber of YOMVi so now, we know! I will have to check with my LENOVO S939 /A880/A889 which is in my hand right now. and compare that DRM drivers issues amongst the 20-30 other LENOVO ROMs against PiPo firmware but it is not my priority. Just doing a favor.

Yesterday I successfully installed this firmware and it works great. Thanks!

I found two tips that helped me greatly, and I hope that these might help others:

(1) I had to trim the plastic on the end of the USB connector to expose about 7.5mm of the connector in order to achieve a positive and consistent connection to the Pipo M9 Pro tablet.

(2) I had to follow this procedure to use the Rockchip Batch Tool v1.7:

a. Start with PC running the Rockchip Batch Tool v1.7, and the Pipo M9 Pro tablet OFF with USB not connected.

b. Connect the USB cable between the PC and the tablet.

c. While pressing and holding the ESC key, press the power button for about 4 seconds. My PC made the sound for the USB connection and the Pipo tablet started. I released both keys. The PC searched for and installed the driver.

d. The Rockchip Batch Tool v1.7 gave the GREEN indicator, and I was able to easily use RESTORE to install the new firmware.

Your mileage may vary. :)

Like they all say! Back to basic! It is the most basic thing in flashing this PiPo, the micro USB connectors like (all old timers here knows) that is a known issue.
