    The usb driver was apparently accepted on windows 7 64 bit however when attempting to get the P1 to go into upgrade mode, pressing the volume and power button only turns off the unit.

    Looking to flash marshmallow on Pipo P1. Having problems again getting into upgrade mode. After powering down the tablet, then pressing volume- and power, the tablet begins coming on but then shuts down.

      Did you try to disconnect the power supply while booting? The pipo p1 has sometimes issues with starting and rebooting with the supply connected. It might bother getting in the upgrade mode.
