Were you one of those early adopters who picked up a PIPO M9 10.1-inch tablet with Android 4.1, only wishing you waited until the company started selling the Android 4.2 version? Well, relax – you can now update the device yourself.
PIPO has released a Android 4.2 ROM update for the M9 tablet that you can pick up from Geekbuying.com’s MediaFire account here. (Password is ‘geekbuying.com’).
The installation process is pretty simple – download the file, un-rar it, rename the .img file to ‘update.img’ and copy it to the root of a MicroSD card.
You then power up the M9 and you’ll get an upgrade prompt.
Although the details are scarce, you can check out the details at GeekBuying’s blog. (We recommend you do so before attempting to update the ROM.)
The M9 is one of just a number of 10.1-inch Android tablets powered by the ever-popular Rockchip RK3188 quad-core processor that’s taken the Asian tablet market by storm. The tablet features 1280×800-pixel resolution through I-PS screen technology and with the update, will run Android 4.2 operating system. It’s powered by a huge 7600mAh Lithium-ion battery and features 2GB of DDR3 RAM.
Wireless connectivity on this one is good with Bluetooth 4.0 along with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi networking.
PIPO is also squeezing that CPU, getting it to clock at up to 1.6GHz.
You can read more about the tablet over at the PIPO website.
