Default How To: Update Firmware for Teclast T29


As with every guide on this forum or the internet, the steps described below are of my personal views and may or may not reflect any official guides from the Teclast manufacturer, HouseOfDAP.com, or MyMPxPlayer.org Forum.

While i try to keep the guide as accurate as possible, i'm not responsible if you should brick or damage your player/computer.

Updating the firmware on your Teclast T29 is by far the easiest as compared to the other Chinese players. You do not need any software for doing so, the player itself has a built-in updating software to make life easier for us.


STEP 1 Downloading required files

If you are using Windows 98, you will need to install the Windows 98 driver. The driver file can be found Here

Download the latest version of T29 firmware, the current latest version is v1.07 at the moment. The various version updates contains numerous bug fixes and additional images available for theming.

For archiving purposes, here are the other versions available.
v1.03
v1.04
v1.05
v1.06
v1.07


STEP 2 Which file goes where

Now that you have downloaded the required firmware update, unpack it and locate the 3 files within it.
Firmware file: TL_T29FW.rom
Resource file: TL_T29RS.BIN
Help file: 固件升级方法说明.chm

Next, plug in your T29 via USB to your computer, and enter the player's Root Directory from My Computer.

Cut/Copy the 3 files into the Root Directory as shown below, my player's root directory is F:\, however your player may have a different drive letter assigned:
Click the image to open in full size.
The 2 important files are the TL_T29FW.rom and TL_T29RS.BIN files. The help file is not important, and do not matter if you did not copy it into the player.


STEP 3 Safe removal of player

This will be the player's screen whilst it is connected and drive mounted to the computer:
Click the image to open in full size.

Once you are done with the file transfer, Safely Remove the player from your computer, this will dismount the drive from the computer. The player screen would be like this:
Click the image to open in full size.

Now unplug the USB cable from the computer. The player would shutdown subsequently.


STEP 4 Updating firmware

Next, turn the player On.

You will be shown a white screen with the Upgrade F/W display. This is very brief, about 1-2 seconds.
Click the image to open in full size.

After this, the player would shutdown again.

Now, turn the player On again for the second time.

You will be shown a similar white screen, but with the Upgrade Resource display. This would take slightly longer, about 5-6 seconds.
Click the image to open in full size.

Once done, the player would startup normally.


STEP 5 Change display language to English

The firmware has now been successfully updated.

The problem with these players are that once a new firmware has been updated, the language switches back to the original Chinese language.

To switch it back to English, scroll the menu to the Setting menu. You can identify it by looking for the icon menu with the gears:
Click the image to open in full size.

Once entered, chose the first selection at the top of the list:
Click the image to open in full size.

Entering, chose the first selection once again:
Click the image to open in full size.

Next, scroll down by one. This would select English as the language for the player:
Click the image to open in full size.

The language immediately changes as you scroll between the choices, so you won't go wrong selecting the wrong language:
Click the image to open in full size.


STEP 6 Update Complete!

Firmware update and language setting has been completed. Now enjoy your player!


Feel free to post any comments or questions.
Do inform me if the download links are outdated, these are temporary links until the formal links in the downloads section are approved.
