    Don't know the Pipo M3, I'd guess it's probably an off-brand Chinese device. Unlikely there is much, if any information about it. Have you tried any of the universal rooting tools?

    I have to ask, do you have any reasons for rooting your tablet? Like to remove pre-installed software bloat or something? If you don't have any genuine reasons for rooting it, I'd suggest you leave it alone.

    I want to root it for many reasons, but mainly for the reasons 90% of people root their androids

    100%, purchased direct from Pipo. There are two types, both have major issues with cpu speeds, a fix is available for the one with the newer mainboard, no fix for the old board, yet Pipo still sending out the Oldboard type. Pipo support is very poor, trying to get a fix for slow processor speed. Also a way of rooting is available for new mainboard, sadly mine is old type

    That sounds about right. :rolleyes: Unfortunately you're dealing with firm in Shenzhen, China here. They often send out tablets that have problems, and support is usually poor or non-existent. Thing is, some of these devices coming from Shenzhen can be absolute garbage.

    This is one of the dangers of buying cheap Chinese tablets from some brand you've never heard of, unlike say Samsung, Asus or Motorola.

    You might want to have a look at this, it's not good news though.
