Please note I haven't tested this firmware yet as I currently don't have my PiPO M9 pro with me during the holidays, please report any problem with this firmware

Edit 2013/01/05: this firmware is confirmed to work by many users in our forum and myself. I have added some screenshots as well.

I think PiPO will publish a firmware for the 3G model shortly.

Still, the firmware in post #1 for the WiFI version should also work for 3G models, with 3G function disabled, at least that was working like that on previous firmwares. It even appeared that some WiFI firmware did support the 3G models, so it may be worth trying...

 

Edit: furonai, you mean you have the 3G model, installed the firmware from post #1 and 3G works ?

 

Cheers.

Yes, now is in 3g mode

 

Mobile data indicator is always on, but if you activate the 3g data icon appears and that is when 3g data works

Downloaded (fast) and restored onto my Wifi only M9 Pro. Had a few problems initially (crashes & freezes) but I think my external SD card was playing up. Now seems good. But:

GPS is not working. I loaded this ROM and then did load the gps.conf files as for the previous version. Z-Device Test had GPS crossed out (ie no module) and GPS Test showed it as off. In Settings I tried both 'use device (GPS)' and 'High' settings in Location. In previous version I only tried GPS Test but this did show GPS On (& eventually picked up some sats). I could not see any GPS.Config file or other GPS type of file in the root apart from the gps.conf file I had loaded.

The Miracast feature is not working - it does get further than previously - my wifi direct TV sees the Android Tablet, when I start connection the Tablet asks if I agree to the request. The TV then tries to connect but eventually gives up. I will have another try with my bluray player which I think may have Wifi direct as well.

 

I note the start screen is same as before (saying 4.22) then it goes to the boring 'android' word whilst loading and ends up with the google only launcher. Some of the settings reflect phone and not Tablet and certain files in root mention Nokia and Samsung; I wonder if Pipo have knocked something together in a rush?? Is this simply a 'work in progress' release?
