  • Pipo M8 Pro 4.2.2 RileyROM 1.5

    This ROM is based on the Pipo firmware dated 6/1/13.

    They released both a wifi only version and a 3G version. I have ROM's posted for each version in the download page linked below.

    Update: I fixed some problems with the 3G version on 6/13...it is now 1.5a


    This ROM is:
    Rooted
    Debloated (to remove all apps that require a password to run)
    Init.d support
    Busybox links added
    Google Play Store fixes
    Parameter files for 2, 4, 6 and 8 gig user app space
    Tattman65 boot graphics
    Reboot app from Petrus
    CWM Recovery by Fun

    Thanks to 900Supersport for the use of his flash kit.

    Just follow the readme file for instructions.

    Hi,

    i want to flash 1.5 FW right now, but today my device has become unuseable so I cannot even restart. Freezes and hangs all the time. Right now I got a "Freeze" that touch is not working. How can I manually reset the device, without destroying the back cover and removing the batteries? :-)
    Another thing. Can we directly flash from CWM? Or is RKTool installation via usb required, like the first time?

      Just no way to manually reset device, nothing working. Tried pressing power button for 10+ seconds. Combining with ESC and menu key. What is the secred forced reboot Combo?
      Anyway, after ~20 minutes it rebooted by itself
      I flashed 1.5 firmware. First thing I noticed was that buttom menu bar is darker AND that flickerring on the right side of 'house' home button is gone! Nice, pipo! And of course, nice Randy

      Where can we find Pipos changelog?

        Any news on DRM certs? Netflix is a must-have on this for me, so being kept back on old ROMs is less than ideal.

          Hmm there is something strange. Latest FW was 0518, I have tested both stock and RileyRom based on same Firmware. 0518 was a chinese release Firmware. Now 0530 english FW is out. This should be the same FW as 0518 only english Version. I've got the feeling I just installed the same fw again, though menu bar appeance is definitly not the same.
          I need a changelog in the future. Flashing without changelog does not make much sense IMHO

          PS: on pipos website, netflix support ist the only comment on latest english 0530 fw....

            Where on their website do you see a change log...so far I haven't been able to find one. Google translate doesn't translate everything.

              ??? I did not say that I saw a changelog I am searching for one, actually.

              There is just about nothing info on each firmware. On English version of pipos site:


              M8pro software_english version_android 4.2#115
              support netfix

                That is why I don't provide change logs.

                  I installed the Xposed Netflix fix before I found out that the supposed change in this firmware was to fix Netflix.

                  Has anyone tested Netflix without applying the Xposed fix?

                  If not...ill reflash and check it.

                      If you don't have a Netflix account don't worry. Ill just reflash and test before I add that fix.

                      Some were saying the the screen flickered on past ROMS. I'm not seeing a flicker this time.

                        Yes, I had flickering problem. But it went away after a few minutes/reboots. New 0530/1.5 firmware flickered, too. At least on my device But my home button drawing bug/issue is gone...

                          I just took a screenshot of the new Homescreen, which has a screenshot of old homescreen opened within.
                          You can see that the buttom menu bar ist thinner and less visble, now. Also, the home button is not flickering, but you cant see the latter in the picture

                            For those of you who have a 3G version of the M8 Pro, I have made a ROM using the latest firmware for the 3G. Follow the same link above to the download page.

                              Thanks Riley.

                              Can anyone please tell me if I need to root before installing Riley's firmware? I can't find instructions anywhere on how to root or install CWM. I am on the last 4.2.2 Pipo English update (the one before 1st June). I would really appreciate any help. Thank you!
