    Pipo U8 RileyROM 2.0 KitKat

    Wow, it's been a long time since we've received a KitKat update from Pipo. The U8 was the very first tablet Pipo introduced KitKat to, in beta back in January. I think version 1.9 has served us well...but time for v2.0....finally!!!!!!!!

    This ROM is based on an OFFICIAL Non-beta release from the Pipo site made on 4/21/14, but released on 5/24/14:

    Stock Firmware

    There isn't a change log, so I don't know what Pipo has done different with this firmware, but I've been improving my development over the last several months, so I can say that things are a little more polished.

    This ROM is:

    Rooted with SuperSU
    Debloated removing unnecessary apps
    init.d support
    Busybox support
    Auto Install on first boot (see this thread for details)
    Google Play Store fixes added
    English default language, but changeable to all standard Android languages
    2, 4, 6, 8, or 12gb user app space by changing parameter files
    Multiple ko modules for VPN and other networking support added
    Working TWRP Recovery by abdul_pt
    Boot Animation by me

    Reboot app by Petrus
    Updated First Time User's Guide

    Download

    v2.0.1

    Updated TWRP Recovery

                  Open the flashtool, tick only recovery and point it to the TWRP image file. DON'T ERASE IDB and press run/flash.

                  You can also tick the same parameter file you used to flash the Rom.

                      Working smooth

                      The touch controls for TWRP are now working! although I have not done anything with it yet but test the touch buttons, thanks abdul and riley,

                      I'm still testing the ROM for overall performance but 1 great thing about this update are the Kernels it's now back to 1.6ghz unlike the ones from the previous KitKat updates which are locked to 1.4ghz cpu-z logs and cpu identifier now says its rk3188 at 1.6ghz unlike the previous ones where its says rk3188 @ 1.4ghz I thought I have a 3188T since I bought this U8 just this year and antutu now scores it at 20K+ unlike the previous ones at 18k to a little over 19k...

                        If you have flashed this ROM, the new TWRP Recovery is already installed on your tablet.

                        The way it works is that your system will boot the first time with stock recovery. After stock recovery finishes formatting all of the partitions, it will reboot to system.

                        On the first system boot, TWRP recovery is automatically installed in the background (so it's always a good idea to wait a minute or two to let it finish). You will see the reboot app in your app drawer. Use it to reboot to recovery and you will be in TWRP.

                        One note about my TWRP experience....EVERYTHING WORKS!!!!!!!! Don't worry that the bottom two buttons are cut off...they still work.

                          Off Charging

                          off charging is now possible... I turned off my U8 and plugged it to charge to my surprise it didn't fully boot up but instead it shows a charging animation unlike before, some camera apps still have inverted viewfinder but others worked perfectly fine, still have to test some more but it's charging now

                          [IMG][/IMG]

                          I lol'd when I saw this pic, most of the time I put my tab wrongly on its case and wonder why the camera is all black

                          btw: I'm using abduls updated resolution on twrp, it works and the buttons are not cut out...

                            error: android.process.media has topped

                            error found it only occurs whenever I click Downloads app (download manager) it says "android.process.media has topped" tried re-flashing the rom and test it on first bot but it still gets that error, anyone also encounter this error? don't know it it affects some apps operation it seems to be the only problem...
