I just double checked my stock firmware details .  I read it from Android System Info App and the 'About' tab.

Kernel: Linux version 3.0.8+ (root@wzq-G41M-ES2L) #106 SMP PREEMPT Mon Dec 17 16:51:40 CST 2012

Build number: RK30_ANDROID4.1.1-SDK-v1.00.00 DS733-eng 4.1.1 JRO03H/20121010.100452 release-keys

Android 4.1 JB: PIPO/DS733/DS733:4.1.1/JRO03H/20121010.100452:eng/release-keys

If I am reading it right, this seems to be a later android build 2012 Oct 10 with the new Kernel.  That probably explain the fix in the 3D performance.  This is based on the stock firmware loaded on my tablet (S1 update_20121224.rar)  http://pan.baidu.com/share/link?shareid=169408&uk=1811948349

 

Thanks.

I would like to ask if the firmware also supports gameloft games since other firmwares cannot launch games from gameloft..

Thanks in advance..

I just finished another round of game testing based on Mandrake_14's request.  I picked only Gameloft games this time.  The good news is I was able to play all the ones I tried (free from play store) without any lags or performance issues.  Some of the games are 3D, some are not.  I tried a variety of different games to give a broader scope.

Here is the list of games I tried:  Six Guns, Brothers in Arms 2 Global Front, Real Soccer 2012, GT Racing Hyundai Edition, Zombie Wood, World at Arms, Men in Black 3.

 

I am very happy with the stock rom right now.   I think PiPO used an older firmware to create the English version but release it after the one with the chinese apps.   Don't know why.   Based on the firmware details and the gaming testing I have done, I think the best one is definitely the one I got now (S1 update_20121224.rar).  

ArcTablet - when you have the time, I would really appreciate (I am sure other PiPO owners will feel the same way) if you can customize the version of the firmware I have currently.   Thanks.

@ lms : Thanks for sharing !

"games for testing : Asphalt 7, Backstab, N.O.V.A. 3, The Amazing Spider-man … They are using great "visual effects" and I think they need a lot of GPU resources …"  Just search in your browser for "apkmania" ... Thanks in advance !

I tried to get the games to try but I haven't been successful.   Most of the links are dead.  The only one I could find is N.O.V.A. 3 but I couldn't get the game to install properly even after following the instructions.   The game is supposed to download some cache files but it just goes in a loop of checking for required files and then verifying files.   It doesn't get out of this loop.   I have tried the installation steps multiple times but couldn't get it to install properly.   Between trying to find the games and getting NOVA3 to install, I have spent a better half of the day.  I don't think I am going to spend anymore time on this.  In anycase, the other Gameloft games I tried all work and some of them are 3D.   Although I am not 100% sure if the ones you mentioned work but based on the 2 dozen games or so that I tested (which quite a few of them are 3D), I have not had any lag or performance issue.   That's enough evidence for myself to verify the firmware I am running is good.

I looked up Rayman on the play store and it is not free so I can't test it.  It sounds like both the english and non-english version have performance issues with some specific games.  Since this china tablet is cheap, I kind of expected some things don't run well on it.   Afterall, it's not a Nexus 7 or even a Samsung Galaxy 2.  It already performs much better than my expectation so I am happy with it especially with the firmware that I currently have.  To me, all the major issues that affect my everyday use of the tablet are resolved in the 20121224 firmware.  Everything I threw at it so far runs very well.   The ones that don't seem to work well are a few specific games that I am not going to play anyways.

The 2GB partition expansion that ArcTablet customize is very helpful in allowing me to install more apps so I really appreciate that.  I wonder why PiPO create a 'NAND Flash' partition at all, it certainly doesn't help users when most apps don't see the actual microSD card as SD storage.   I don't know enough about Android OS to understand the reason or limitation, but it seems strange PiPO developer would design it that way.  I actually emailed PiPO a week or so ago about this but haven't heard back from them.   I hope in the next official firmware release they will just partition 2GB by default or even get rid of 'NAND Flash' partition alltogether, that will make the tablet perfect in my perspective.

Thanks for info !

"Since this china tablet is cheap, I kind of expected some things don't run well on it."

Hm...With TNT-R3 all the games mentioned in my earlier post work flawless !!! I think PIPO sacrificed the performance (at last graphic performance) for stability... Too bad :( ...

Interesting.  I didn't know about that.  When I had TNT R3 running, I didn't try many games.   I typically only has fruit ninja, angry bird & UNO on it.  I am hopeful that the next release of the official firmware may include the best of both worlds.  PiPO seems to be pretty good about releasing firmware updates to fix issues and I really appreciate there are people like Roman2025 and ArcTablet to customize the firmware to make them even better.

Hi, can anyone show me a link where I can download the TNT 3? I just got my S1 a few week ago and i just flashed it with the 20121224 Chinese version and my stock ROM seem to a bit more fluid.  I want to try TNT 4 and TNT 3 just to compare.

I want to use it for games and hook it up to my TV via HDMI and use sixaxis, which ROM would you suggest?

 

TIA
