Preparation :

A rooted ROM or (but this is for only  for Kasty PipO M9pro #407. 20140504 version) bcoz it contains the build.prop  for this version and device. If you are and advanced user you can change the "build.prop" inside this versionwith your device version.

1.The "gps.conf" file with the following statement in it :

Contains reference to "asia.ntp servers, europe.ntp servers and north america only ntp servers.

2.This will install NTPSync app that is most important for GPS accuracy. It syncs with your country's  ntp time servers

3.  NULL and VOID

4. Copy the zip files onto sdcard and go into CWM >>>select INSTALL>>(this zip file)

5 NUL and VOID

6. When restarted go to NTPSync >> select "NTP server" option and enter your country code.  e.g "de" for Germany, "fr" for France, "in" for India, "cn" for China.

CHANGELOGS:

Install only through CWM/TWRP therefore DO NOT UNZIP THE FILE

Installs GPSTest and NTPSync

Install QuickExit to quickly exit a non responding applications without waiting or rebooting it will always auto restart.

 DONT USE THE PREVIOUS VERSION, USE THIS LATEST VERSION that instals through CWM/ TWRP

Does the tablet need to be in recovery mode before you do this?

No need just make sure that it has USB debugging  to "ON" and connect the PC and device (wait for the USB device and USB debugging on the PC and device to be connected, ensure that all USB drivers are available)   and just run the "**.bat" file and it will do the rest. If you are wiser yu can use this to manually "ROOT"a stock firmware by adding the appropriate file with the appropriate "chmod/chown"  permission statement (I took this from the ROOTING script.)

Sorry bout the late reply been busy on other forums too. If you are living in the US you can request from me  another suitable script specifically for the USA from the rest of the world all you have to do is to change the gps.conf file to your appropriate country.Remember to to rename the file "gps.conf(xyz123)" to just "gps.conf"

 

After it has finished it will reboot the device.

 

USE THIS LATEST VERSION

Could you be so kind as to tell me where to get the proper ADB windows drivers for the M9 please?
No matter what I try I cannot get your script working on windows 8
I even used the Windows 7 laptop that I use for flashing roms and tried to change the drivers but none are working

I wonder if its as a result of using Finless 1.5 rom and the computer picking it up as an I9300

I did try restoring the original build.prop instead of the one supplied so the play store works properly but I cannot find the proper drivers anywhere

 

I even tried installing Moborobo to install the drivers but nothing works

Try this : https://mega.co.nz/#!XlAHXDyC!Qr6y0lhd2rpSAdU0rk-CSmrc36Bjjju4hvFkSEMM_08

or the RK Driver installer for Win7/Win8 (not Win8.1) : http://www.mediafire.com/download/sd9h9dckq10wz09/RK-Release_DriverAssiStant.zip

Or in case of emergency plaese use the universally recommended ADB driver PDA Net (attached below)

 

Please delete the "build.prop" file inside the folder or just add the sysmbol "##" to the front of "build.prop" file as the build.prop is meant for Max M9Pro with a different version and screen resolution, or else you might end up with a non booting M9 (this build.prop is meant for M9Pro only) Please omit the "build.prop" from being installed into M9 this is meant for M9pro.

The 2nd driver worked beautifully on windows 8.1 X64 all I did was go into the properties and choose compatability as Windows 8 and it installed and worked perfectly

Thanks

This is actually a general settings fix for GPS settings , it doesnt solve the problems of poor hardware (like M9Pro it has a metal back cover that hinders a good GPS receptions but every little bit of helps count)

Discard the old files  and use this version only for M9Pro #407 20140504 , since this mod contains the "build.prop" to M9Pro only. (If an advance user you can substitute the buid.prop with your device (any) build.prop) but try to leave evrything else intact for effective settings.

Copy this zip file (DO NOT UNZIP IT) and use CWM to INSTALL. In the NTPSync  app you only need to enter your country code in option "NTP server" example : fr.pool.ntp.org (France.)  de.pool.ntp.org (Germany) you only key in 2 letters and set the settings to update daily.

If you find that a lot of time out to connect to ntp (slow sync with servers)servers to your coutry substitute that with your continent i.e. "europe","asia""north-america", "us"

I give you this download link : https://mega.co.nz/#!LFsxXIRZ!CjO8oT7ustBGlGwBy-pbcCCAbr6ZyrW8yDHi-G7_73E for your request. Unzip only this file get the update.zip file inside. The size is about 70Mb but that is due to me being lazy in writing an elegant script for symlinking busybox so the bloated size is the full "/xbin" folder content. The actual update is less than 25Mb. Sorry about that.

First use Kannan Recovery Flasher (included) to flash TWRPrecovery (incl.). I am an advocate of TWRP Recovery rather than CWM and almost all of my firmware mods have TWRP rather than CWM.

Then install the zip file inside (DO NOT UNZIP !) It will install SuperSU2.49 and correct the original rooting file where the busybox is installed in "/bin" folder whereas majority of root would expect to find "busybox" in the "/xbin" folder (this will correct it.)

It will install GPSTest Pro for testing satellite signal/ NTPSync where it will sync time to your nearest NTPServer (in your case I have set it to Canada/north-america) this is important to sync your device time and satellite time.

i found where is the problem... i also try to flash the first post update.zip package but using ManuPc recovery this time and ... same result: sdcard, external_sd and data partition not remount at reboot after the update.zip applied.

i try many way to adb shell some remount command with no success...

it is why all system app that doesn't have depency on /data work fine and system load almost by luck ūüôā and why example my 'root explorer' app won't work like all other user apps....

i'll try that solution https://mega.co.nz/#!LFsxXIRZ!CjO8oT7ustBGlGwBy-pbcCCAbr6ZyrW8yDHi-G7_73E

maybe i would have to flash whole fresh kasty rom again before this update ....?.... due that for now i can't access any partition (sdcard and external) i'll try a workaround to adb push update.zip to system and flash the provided M9ProTWRP_recovery using flash tool 1.37 than reboot to recovery from there and flash the update.zip right from system ūüôā not sure...

Really thx for your hard work on this forum and providing a fast solution to me

CryMy apologies about the error! I had to use another device to generate the GPS update zip  file. This time with a smaller xbin file (it will symlink on the device itself) so the file have shrunk to 8Mb only.If it doesnt symlink download Busybox installer(Stericson NOT JRummy) and get it to symlink . DO NOT UNZIP the GPS update.zip just straight away INSTALL using TWRP , I had tested it on my own M9Pro.WinkWink
