Notes: 

- any update received thru OTA may interfere with our custom firmware, we recommend not to apply any OTA update

 

Custom firmware features:

  • root with latest SuperSU version 1.80 (free version)
  • removed most Chinese and unnecessary applications

  • 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¬†4 GB
  • disabled OTA updates (may cause problems, see Notes above)
  • kernel modules (cifs, tun, lan, serial, xpad) compiled by Oma &¬†Crew RKTablets¬†thank guys!
  • NEW!¬†¬†optional¬†ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery easy install package

 

Download: kasty-pipo-u8-442-20131212-rooted4.zip

Flash with Rockchip Batch Tool version 1.7, use Restore button.

 

Please report any problem with this firmware, I can't verify this custom firmware works as I don't have a PIPO U8 tablet to test the custom firmware.

Hi, can you please tell me how your tablet is seen in the Google Play Market with this rom? Nexus 7 ?

Can you install Gameloft games as Asphalt adrenaline?

Thanks

It is not spoofed as nexus 7. It is as it is, a U8.

Gameloft games should be no problem as the next screenie can tell you. I even got GTA SA running although it doesn't show up at Google Play.

Thanks for your quick answer Gizfreak ! 

 

In fact, I was trying unsuccessfully to install Asphalt 8: Airborne (Gameloft) and also Sonic Dash (SEGA) for my son (he has those games on his samsung galaxy 3 )

OK. Windows 7. I had no problem when I first made the upgrade to 20131004. All worked fine.

I tried the same way to upgrade to 20131212 but when I connect the tablet nothing happens. There is Usb connection (I can tranfer files) but it cannot connect to Rocktchip Batch tool.
