How multi-window works.
– to improve UI feeling: disable all animation scales in developer options,
…use Nova launcher and set animation/scroll to “faster than light” and
…enable Entropy Fixer with value 256
– to improve battery drain set keep wi-fi on during sleep to never
– to get full access to the build enable /system rw in File Manager HD
– to disable su notifications change notification in settings/SuperSu
– to prettify the build use Xposed Framework > Starter Pack
– to enable multi-user use the Xposed module Multi Users
Be aware: it is your own risk!

The following users say thank you to Oma7144 for this useful post:TuscaniV6
Thank you very much for this rom OMA, everything runs nicely on this one.
There is only a single flaw on this rom that gets really annoying, and that's the internal storage being used as the default write disk without the ability to switch to external SD for application data.
Do you think you can add this feature with a small new update for this rom?.
Thank you again for your hard work on all the devices.
I managed to swap the default mount points specified in fstab.rk30board.bootmode.emmc and fstab.rk30board.bootmode.unknown found in boot.img by extracting and rebuilding the kernel image.
The problem now is that the REAL SD card is named "Nand Flash" and the REAL Nand flash is now named "SD Card". I'm unable to rename these mount points anywhere, if you could give some help in achieving this or include this feature in a small new update, that would be awesome.
You have about 4 GB internal storage and about 10 GB internal sdcard. This should be more than enough. Why do you like to use the slower medium?

It's a 64GB Samsung EVO with 48MB/s transfer rate, wich is fast enough for me. I dont really mind waiting about 2~5 seconds longer between transfers if i am able to store 5 times more data.
10GB is a joke if you plan on install heavy games on the device, wich is the main reason i bought this tablet (powerful GPU + relatively low resolution screen), movies are also very heavy in size depending on the quality.
There are many reasons to need more than 10Gb of storage. Android apps keep getting bigger and bigger as time passes.
Google probably tought the same at the earlier stages of android, when HTC G1 had 56Mb of app storage and the later allmighty Nexus One had just 156mb.
Either way, do you think that what i'm trying to do is possible, or at least somewhat easy to achieve?, it's just renaming things as they should be.
Doesn't matter what is advertised for the sdcard. In fact (if the tab has eMMC) you will get a performance as shown in attached pic.
Anyway, I do not recommend to touch the mounting. You will face some untraceable errors after a while.
Simply install Exposed Framework and use the module obb on SD.

No. The way is to use the included Flash-Tool.

Hm, copy the pack to the root folder (c:) and make sure there are no greek letters in the path.

This just reflects the current way of life. The majority of tabs comes with an "always on strategy". The only "possibility" to power-off is when you are away from any cable.
The stock firmware is available on the Pipo homepage.

Thank you Oma7144 for this rom, it looks great!
Edit: never mind, I flashed everything including RK3288 loader uboot and except cwm and TWRP and then TWRP and parameter. It's working fine so far
But kodi (xbmc) does not work at all :'(
I've tried with 14.1 and latest rc 14.2
Is kodi working for anyone on this device?
I just flashed it following your instructions attached, but I don't know if I did it correctly
First I did lowerformat and flashed everything that was checked by default in androidtool (everything except RK3288 loader uboot, TWRP and CWM)
Then I flashed just parameter and TWRP
Did I do it correctly? Should I flash the rk3288 loader uboot file too?
When youi did it acc. to instructions yyou should be fine.
