    First Time User's Guide for RileyROM's

    Each of my ROM kits contains a pdf file with a complete set of instructions in great detail. Thanks to Freaktab member Pr0xZen for doing much of the research and producing the first versions of this guide. I have since updated it with some more information and features.

    If you are just considering installing a custom ROM to a Rockchip device, and would like to look at the guide without having to download the entire ROM...here is a link to the First Time User's Guide for your review. Actually, this guide will help you with any Rockchip device, and any ROM you download from Freaktab.

    Download (for RK3066 or RK3188 devices)
    Download (for RK3288 devices)
    Download (for MTK devices)

    The First Time User's Guide has been updated to v7.

    I cleared up some confusion about the file name of the flash tool used to flash RileyROM's.

    I also added some links to some important Freaktab threads that should be studied before making an attempt to flash for the first time.

          Rom and App backups before installation

          Thank you Randy for all your work on the Pipo tablets!

          I would like to install RileyRom (in my case RileyROM 2.0 for Pipo U8) on an a Pipo U8 running unrooted stock 4.2. Before I install a new Rom I would like to backup the current Rom, the apps and their data.
          Where can I find instructions for backing up the Rom (as I am still with the Stock Rom) and rooting the tablet (for using Titanium backup) or an alternative route for backing up apps and their data?
          The guide mentions an experimental "Flash Tool with instructions on making a backup of your device prior to flashing". Is this tool fully operational and does it backup apps in addition to the current Rom?

          Thanks!

                    Good work you are doing here Bro. But this userguide is for those using rockchip devices. Please what about we using MTK devices?

                    Cos for me, am using Pipo U7, and I need to upgrade the firmware to either any of your custom rom(thats if you have any for Pipo U7) or the one on their website. Please help me out. Thanks

                      I created one for MTK, which is included in my ROM zip files. I need to revise it some more and I will post a link here. Thanks for the interest. Also watch for a U7 ROM in the next few days.

                        I've updated post #1 to include new versions of the First Time User's Guide for RK3288 and MTK devices. This guide is also included in each RileyROM zip file.
