Default Foehn & Hirsch H16 Sleek Screen MP4 Player 4GB 3.0" TFT Screen Rk2705


Foehn & Hirsch H16 Sleek Screen MP4 Player 4GB 3.0" TFT
Screen Rk2705

I have recently acquired one of these players.

I have managed to extract the firmware from it and produce
an image uploaded here:-
MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

This Rk2705 player uses .img format files which can be opened with ultraISO
and flashed to the player using RK27_update_Image, so modifications to the UI
are possible using the standard Rk27xx tools.

You are advised to use this firmware for DEAD player recovery only! -mod at your own risk!

btw tag to open the firmware partitions is FRK.TAG. :-)

Thanks Knob for sharing this.

You "recently aquired"? Did someone give it to you or did you buy another MP4 player to add to your collection?

;-) yes another MP4 player!

Foehn & Hirsch H16 Sleek Screen MP4 Player 4GB 3.0" TFT Screen Rk2705 and Rockbox.

You can use Rockbox on this player using the rk27xx reference build unmodified.

I have modified a standard cabbie theme to the rk27xx 240x400 layout, music plays very well in fact better quality than the OF using playfx. Many plug-ins also work including Coverflow and Lyricplayer.

Click the image to open in full size.

To do this I had created base.rkw from rockbox.bin using alemaxx patching tool and placed in the original firmware (.img) image.

Please bear in mind if you try this:-

1) Soft shutdown does not work so you need to use the mechanical on/off switch to turn the
player off, other rk27xx players may not even have this option.

2) You cannot go back to the original firmware unless you open the player and
short out the nand pins to get back into update mode, some players are difficult
to open without damage.

3) No flash memory access from Rockbox or USB transfer, but a 8GB microSD
works fine.

4) Only 5 out of the 6 buttons work, but Rockbox only requires 5 anyway.

5) There is no FM radio option or recording.

In spite of the above overall I have found Rockbox much better than the original firmware, but it might be worth hanging on ‘til the above issues are resolved. ;-)

Attached is a Rockbox build for this player.

Remember you need to have a microSD card for this and copy the .rockbox folder
to the root and then flash the image file.

The build can work for many other generic rk27xx series players with buttons and
a 400x240 screen layout, but it will be a matter of trial and error at your own risk! be sure you can restore your original firmware first and good luck!

p.s anyone wishing to develop this further you can check out the source code at
