Hi there,

after several weeks of reading through the forum and other online resources I'm ready to buy the Pipo M1. So I made a sum-up of the thread to see all the remaining issues. Can you please check and tell if some of the mentioned problems have disappeared or are no issues at all? Here we go:

Pros:
  • RK3066 (best chipset right now)
  • good build quality (metal case, etc.)
  • very thin (9.6 mm)
  • good battery (7800 mAh)
  • ...more, but too lazy ;)

Issues:
  • WiFi connection could be better (different statements, 65 mbps would be very good for me?!)
  • no root possibility specifically for the M1, but via custom ROM from R2000 (Roman2025 succeeded in rooting it and will probably upload a tool later)
  • bad placement of speakers
  • a bit of screen bleed
  • high battery drain in “sleep mode”?
  • Problems with saving APN settings

What do you think? Or are there better choices right now? I've seen first details for the M2 on the PIPO website (PIPO Website)...hmmmm?!

Thank you!
there is no other world,
and there has never been.

It has a working ClockworkMod Recovery. Everything seems good excepted when I used Ads Aways to block ads, it said this firmware has S-ON/OFF feature like HTC phones.

Thus, at the end, I can't get access to host file to apply ads blocking rules. Does anyone know how to fix it ?



hey i saw that in the custom ROM firmware say that use adfree instead of ads aways becuase it had problem working on rom.

also wanna let you know i have order the PIPO M1 and a PIPO UI 7" tablet and thinking to sell my aoson m11 on ########### anyone interested just email me but before i'm thinking on make a video showing the quality.

Just received my PIPO and I'm pretty impressed. It really feels like a quality product!

I've been reading through different posts as well as translated the chinese manual to find a way to root my baby, but I have problems to find the "upgrade button". In the chinese manual, which I translated" it says: Turn off the player before upgrading the firmware. Press and hold the upgrade button pressed while the device is connected to a PC USB port. If you have not installed device drivers, it will pop up the following prompt:

Could any one elighten me on which button is the "upgrade" button? :(

/Max

EDIT OK got it now : The upgrade button is Volume - button :)
I Think PIPO should get it's own Subforum. And not being placed under "Unlisted Rockchip RK3066 Tablets"...

Look here http://www.flashmyan...0-Date-13-08-12
Is a custom rom pre-rooted CWM recovery that say it work for pipo m1 , 97s, Yooe R2, CUbe U9GT3 we are save peoplee


Kind of weird I tried to root it with the custom rom, but the new one 01A but failed. Had to restore with the stock rom. Maybe zBeYuz rooted with the "older version" 01. Anyone else that could confirm that the custom rom has worked?

Ok. didn't know it was prerooted. It had some chinese apps as well as on the keyboard there's still some chinese keys... but as I said I flashed to the stock image and cleaned up the chinese apps etc and it works great to me so I guess a new rom isn't needed. Not for me anyway since all things right now are working. I don't know about the games from gameloft though since I don't play games, but I may check that as well soon.

I don't know the PIPO site. I got the info from my supplier. You can probably google around and find it though?

It should be stated again that the speaker kind of sucks :)

@ Haneya - I am a retailer so I get my devices directly from a supplier or the manufacturer ;). I will probably start a presell on these in a few weeks and will offer both a import/modify option as well as a dropship option. I quality inspect anything imported/modified before shipping and also provide support. The question right now I am asking is if this unit is good enough to rebrand/co-brand as the Quantum Meson. Currently I am leaning that direction but I want to spend a few more days with it first.

Regards,

Roman

Thus far - Gameloft games refuse to run (not compatible BS that gameloft pushes, will need a build.prop mod once I get firmware and tools to dissect it) however EA's excellent new Mass Effect game runs AMAZING! Awesome game, amazing GPU in this beast :)

How did you get it to run? I have thePiPo u1 and I've tried many ways yet I keep getting the "those application is not authorized for this android device" error. Any suggestions? Also can you tell me if Street fighter 4 would work?

I am fairly certain the PIPO isn't "pre-rooted"? I have new batch coming in hopefully later this week though so I will check and report back. I know I have been beating this drum for a while and am sorry. My time is so crunch... but I DO have a tool and I DO plan on sharing :). I am so sorry it is taking me so long to get to. I am currently doing major transitions for our partner sites, testing out two new devices, and still keeping up with orders :(. I also work another full-time job lol :).

Dear Roman, Since you share hotline with Chinese, Do you have some info on when these guys are coming up with "built in 3G" models with DualCore chips like RK3066 and 8726-MX6 etc.

Thanks for sharing.

Allright if it isn't prerooted it works excellent for me anyway. Had the chance to play with it all day yesterday and man it feels quality and it's really fast. Can't believe I paid $200 for a great piece like this... regarding the WiFi it works just as good or bad as my 24" iMac (early 2009). Well a bit better that my iMac actually from the same distance. But as I walk closer to my router I have full connection on my WiFi bar :good: Now when I have seen the JB though I can't wait until it'll be released for my baby.

Hey Roman,
Can you do a Quadrant bench on the N101 II as well? I would like to see how these 2 models compare to each other (memory and flash performance).
Thanks!

Hi jareds20,

That looks very interesting. Not that many original rk3066 10.1 inch tablets around. Cube U30GT, Window N101 are the main ones. This could be another contender.

I think it's this tablet on Pipo's website...

It's a shame there is only one picture, but looks like it may have front facing dual speakers, which may win some fans what with the N101 II taking a step backwards in design and losing the speakers up front. Hope it turns out to be as good as Roman says the M1 is!

In all honesty, I'm really not bothered with the side speakers on PIPO M1. But I do have to note that I've never owned a slate before, except than using iPAD for a couple o weeks, so I can't judge how much a difference it would make to have front speakers. I watch quite a bit of online video like TED or some lerning videos and haven't thought that much about speakers being to side.
