I understand it so:
Mix M2 = wifi version
Max M2 = 3G version

Gesendet von meinem M2 mit Tapatalk 2
Yes that's clear now

Unfortunately the Mix M2 FW on the Pipo page is dated the same as the FW on my tablet so there is no new FW for me.

So do you think the fw you d/loaded was for the Mix M2 and not the 3G M2 after all?
By the way is the 3G M2 called the Max M2?

I never got into "green" mode using Rockchip Batch Tool (first time that's happened with 7 different RK3066 tablets!).
I'll try the Pipo tool when I get some fw for the Mix M2.
Hey Jezz,

I succeeded in upgrading with the rom/tool I posted in the other post I made.
The pipo tool works pretty easily, as long as you are not in debug mode.

I will report on the rom itself in the other thread.

I cannot figure out Rayfile for the life of me. We are planning on launching the S1 and S2 tablets possibly and I was trying to get the firmware. RIDICULOUS...

If you want China Porn -or- China Video Gaming.... Great! (what an odd mix? lol)

If you want PiPo Firmware... not so much.

Bah!

Hi there roman,

yeah, hideous!
but
did you
install the app
go to the rayfile (use google translate in chrome to auto-translate it
choose add to myspace/dump to my network (white button right next to the red "go to the download" button
then you go to some myspace/dump download thing on their website and from there you add it to their app you installed on your pc.
if you want to return there, choose manage file at the top, takes you to this list of items you have chosen.

btw, you can change the app to english! i dont have the app on this laptop, but its one of the buttons which has two options, the one not selected is english


good luck, it is possible, just massively confused/confusing.

Holy Crap I finally got it to work!

Thanks for the instructions. I will append them a bit... To actually get the #$%^ file to start downloading once you have the client installed you have to go to the file you want to download and click the RED button. Then on that page wait and click the "raysource" button. It will launch a window in your browser and you click okay and then it will open the raysource application on your PC and start downloading. The speed isn't horrible. About 212 KB/S for me. for one file and 60 KB/s for the other.

Also, thanks a million on the language switch tipoff... To further specify for others... Raysource client has a little icon that appears in your taskbar (next to the clock). Click that, and there is one option on there that has 2 selections. The one not selected is English.

None of the above worked for me, not sure if Rayfile changed the way things work. Beklow is what worked for me:

1: Go to the Pipo webpage that directs you to the file you want, in my case it was for the old type main board Pipo M3
2: Having clicked the link at Pipo site, I am now taken to Rayfile. Click the Ray Source V2 Button or click here
3: Download and Install the Raysource client
4: Start Raysource, In notification area of screen near clock, right click Raysource icon, you can change language as stated in another post.
5: Click the RED "Go to the download Button. On page that opens, Translate to English
6: You will see: Click the button below to use client download, click that, On pop up click "Launch Application", the correct download URL will add to The download client, then you are good to go.

Thanks Mark,

I wonder if that fw is for the Mix M2 as that comes with 4.0.4 rather than JB 4.1.1?
That's good news from Amy Ye. I'll try Raysource again although using it is rather like Chinese water torture


Here's what I have found for the M1 and M3 regarding flashing (I suspect the M2 is one or the other but I don't have any firmware to flash so haven't tried it):

UPDATE: According to the update instructions here (I used Google translate) the M2 instructions are the same as the M1.

For flashing M1:
With tablet turned off
Press and hold Vol -
Press reset (use paper clip)
Still holding Vol - connect the USB cable to the USB (not Host) port

For flashing M3:
With tablet turned off
Press and hold Vol +
Press reset (use paper clip)
Still holding Vol + connect the USB cable to the USB (not Host) port

Cheers
Jez
What about the instruction to go into flash mode with the M3 that has the old motherboard?

That's what we're trying to find out! No idea why Pipo are being so tight lipped about it.

They make great tablets but I can't say I am impressed by their after sales. Still not even had a reply from Amy Ye!
