I contacted them yesterday but for U1, and was able to confirm that they are not upgrading its firmware to 4.2, not sure though with M1Maybe you should email Pipo, don't think anyone here could answer, I already email Amy @ Pipo about this a couple of weeks ago but received no reply, I wouldn't get your hopes up. Chinese tablet updates don't normally last that long
It boots up to Chinese but its easy to go into settings and change the default language and keyboard - then carefully remove unwanted Chinese apps (bloatware) or download Roman's TNT rom this is English and zero bloatIs the Android version (4.1) on the PiPo M1 English or will I have to flash to change from the Chinese version? Thanks
Holy crapThere is an english version now too! Downloading now, but slow as heck.
The Chinese version is mirrored by TNT http://www.rockchipfirmware.com/node/140
Actually I timed it and I noted about a 15 second decrease in "real boot time". It still takes about 30 seconds from cold -to- lockscreen but you are then pretty much instantly ready to go as widgets only take another 2 seconds or so to load vs like the 15 seconds they took on TNT R5. There is definitely some kind of improvement and that wasn't just the placebo affectActually the time to boot is about the same 45 seconds, it just felt quicker ;-) But at least it is now responsive directly after booting, unlike in previous firmwares where you had to wait for one minute before trying to do anything with the tablet.
