Here a second Android 4.4 KitKat (KRT16O) rooted firmware update for the PiPO U8 tablet (aka Pipo Ultra-U8). It is based on latest PiPO update dated 2013/12/10.

(U8_DS7901_3188_4.4_201311210.rar / U8_software_chinese version_android4.4.1)

 

Build information: 

Kernel: Linux version 3.0.56 (york@mid-Porsche) (gcc version 4.4.3 (GCC) ) #437 SMP PREEMPT Tue Dec 10 11:17:59 CST 2013

Android 4.4 KitKat: rk30sdk/rk30sdk/rk30sdk:4.4.1/KOT49E/eng.ljh.20131210.163032: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! (won't work, as Linux kernel has been updated to 3.0.56)
  • NEW!¬†¬†optional¬†ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery easy install package

 

Download: kasty-pipo-u8-44-20131210-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.

Thanks for the updated ROM,

 

so far been very stable, everything seems to be working, will really test it out this weekend.

Have to say think it is quicker than the stock 4.2 rom that came with the device.

 

Mx player complaining about the OS version but it seem to be MX player issue. 

 

thanks again

cheers
