Excellent work! Well done!
One question to anybody who may knows, is there any way we can deactivate the "Hide feature" of the System bar? It conflicts with Swiftkey. Is there something that I can change in build.prop?

(A little off topic, maybe admin would like it as a new thread?)

 

AN EASY WAY TO UPDATE THE ROM

 

I came across some information that suggested it is possible to install a new ROM on the M9Pro (maybe other PIPO products?) by simply placing the update file in the root of the external SD card and renaming it to "update.img".  When you next boot up the M9Pro, the update file is recognised and you are given the opportunity to install it in a pop-up window.

First I tested it whilst my system was (AHEM!) RileyROM2.3   Embarassed and used the official chinese ROM that was released 20/11/13 on my external SD card. I rebooted, and yes, the update was recognised and installed.  During the install the little busy android figure shows along with a sliding scale showing progress of install.  The system seemed to reboot a couple times ... have patience ... and eventually it rebooted into the official Chinese ROM.

Just in case it only worked with the official ROM, I then tested it using the latest Kasty ROM  and rebooted the official version, and it recognised the update file and installed that too.

So it seems to be an easy method, doesn't it?

Maybe other PIPO owners would like to take the bull by the horns and test it out.... (the usual warnings apply... if it bricks it isn't my fault!)

 

EDIT:  I realise that this method doesn't allow for changing the size of the NAND, but I've been informed that it won't either allow the change of the bootloader (if this is altered in the new ROM) nor the kernel (unless the kernel is in boot.img.)  But still, I think it is worth being aware of.

Might one ask the source/location of this information.

If correct(and I don't doubt your experience) it seems an incredibly easy way to install without the use of third party tools and the initial hassle of installing drivers,  particularly as Kasty ROM is in the form of "update.img" allready.

Like yourself I am concerned if there are any potential pitfalls, though users seem of the opinion that m9pro is very difficult to brick.

Anyone else have any input?

Hi.

I already tested this ROM and it's amazing, very great job!! even solved an issue with my pipo m9 pro 3g, i couldn't turnt it on after turning it off, and had to "restore" the firmware with RKtool to power it up again....thanks!!

 

Anyway i really like to test the differences in this rom with the original pipo last update, but i cant find the 2013/11/20 update at any pipo webpage.... anyone can give me a link? please

 

Sorry for my bad english, i'm from canary islands and i had horrible bad english teachers and mainly learned english from "the big bang theory" with subtitles! XD ;)

@ segundus: I was spending a little time trawling the Chinese forums using Google translator.  Unfortunately such translations aren't really brilliant, but I got the gist of it.  It seems that this method is supported by all Rockchip devices (so I'm told) - but with the limitations I mentioned in my edit.

 

I agree with you that it seems very hard to brick this unit, which was why I took the plunge and tested out what I thought I had interpreted from the Chinese, and went in both directions.  Going from the official ROM to a custom one was the real risk (I thought), but it seemed all went well with mine.

....so, do i have just to copy the update file in the external sd card? 

thx a lot

Has anyone installed the Rom using ARCTOOLS to add CWM functionality?

http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/arctools-application/clockworkmod-cwm-recovery-easy-install-on-rk3066-and-rk3188-devices/

If so would they be able to share their experience. I think ARCTOOLS creates the partions for Nand flash,  bootloader and recovery but obviously as there is no documentation other than the video it would be incredibly useful if someone who had used it described how they did it and what happened. (Including for example does it reformat internal sdcard? Does it resize Nand or is that determined by the Rom being installed via ARCTOOLS? - I still can't figure that out... .;=)    )

Tested this...Not working!!!

I have Riley Rom and i have placed an update.img from Kasty on the root of the Ext.SD card and let the device reboot ,2 times,no result.

Dont't got the notification for installing the img. file

Edit:

Now ,i put the file in the root of the internal memory,reboot...no succes
