Here is the first Android 4.4 KitKat (KRT16O) rooted firmware for the PiPO U8 tablet (aka Pipo Ultra-U8). It is based on latest PiPO update dated 2013/12/04.

(U8_7901_3188_4.4_201311204_体验版.rar)

 

Build information: 

Kernel: Linux version 3.0.36+ (york@mid-Porsche) (gcc version 4.4.3 (GCC) ) #416 SMP PREEMPT Wed Dec 4 10:54:44 CST 2013

Android 4.4 KitKat: rk30sdk/rk30sdk/rk30sdk:4.4/KRT16O/eng.ljh.20131204.162425:eng/opinions-on-teclast-p90hdst-keys

ro.rksdk.version=RK30_ANDROID$(PLATFORM_VERSION)-SDK-v1.00.00

 

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
  • Google Play Store fixes so more application are visible/compatible
  • 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-u8-44-20131204-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.

I just had a look at SuperSU package, it seems to works differently for Android 4.3 and 4.4

I'm checking that and will rebuild a new firmware shortly, any recommendations are welcome as usual Wink

Cheers.

It fails probably because the adb remount command that allows write access to /system did not work, so all the following command end up failing on the read-only file system.

As I don't have a PiPO U8 tablet to test my custom firmware, I rely on users feedback.

It may take a few more tests to make sure the root issue is fixed, here is a new test firmware, please let me know if it works better.

Download: kasty-pipo-u8-44-20131204-rooted4b.zip

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

 

Thanks Wink

So you confirmed you flashed the new file kasty-pipo-u8-44-20131204-rooted4b.zip ?

Have you used Rockchip Batch Tool, with Restore button ?

When you start SuperSU app, does it give any error ?

yes : kasty-pipo-u8-44-20131204-rooted4b.zip (restore)

 

super su error

 

 

binary is not installed, super su can not install
if you just upgrade to android 4.3, you need to manually redo the root

 

I think some guys have made these goglee :(
