Useful Links (use the tools below at your own risk!):
- How to get root access? (in case you are running a stock rom)
if you don't know what root is: http://en.wikipedia....Android_rooting
To get root access, download TPSarky tool here: DOWNLOAD
Unzip it and run "TPSparkyRoot.bat", then follow the onscreen instructions.
IMPORTANT: before running the tool make sure that your tablet is recgnized by your computer. Follow the steps on "How to Flash a New Firmware" to install the drivers properly.
To check if the rooting process was fine, download an app called "Root Checker" from Google Play.
- How to Flash a New Firmware:
Big thanks to Roman from TopNotchTablet for the guide provided.
Download the RKBatch tool here: DOWNLOAD
and follow the instructions here: HOW TO FLASH: GUIDE
The instructions are for a different tablet, but they perfectly work for the Pipo M3 3G. Follow the Yuandao N101 II procedure.
NOTE: After you flash a new firmware the default language could be Chinese, this video shows how to change it easily:

- Improve Market Access and APPs compatibility:
unzip it and copy it in /system.
NEW BUILD.PROP HERE.
Then delete Google Play and Google Services data (settings->apps->all apps)
This is a modified build.prop which is based on Samsung SGS II (SGH-I777) to improve market compatibility.
IMPORTANT: Make sure that you already have root access and make a copy of your original build.prop file!
- How do you HARD RESET?
Are you experiencing bootloops? The system hangs often?
The solution may be re-flashing your device with the same or a new firmware. An hard reset will be automatically performed.
- How to Disassemble it?
Just hold it with screen up and start unblocking the clips all around the frame (I used an old credit card to do so).
It's almost impossible to brake something because the tablet is well built, the clips are solid. (If anybody wants to post a video I'll copy it here)
- WIFI ISSUE
Many users reported having wifi issue with this tablet. It seems that the aluminium case causes some trouble to the wifi.
I tried to move the antennas eveywhere inside the case, but nothing has changed. I just noticed little increase in signal strenght but without any effects on wifi speed.
A workaround could be this: http://vondroid.com/...mprovement.704/
and the attempt on mine: http://www.slatedroi...-m3-wifi-issue/
Basically the antenna quality on this tablet is really poor, and the solution is changing it with a new one. (I'll try this later and report how it works)

SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME!
