No Rockbox port has yet taken off on such hardware, no.

I'm sure it can help a lot!

Telechips being one of them secret companies refusing to hand out data sheets,
makes the effort rather big. Still quite doable of course.

The procedure on how to do this is still roughly the same:

I think you should try to find such people outside of the Rockbox camp since
most Rockbox users and devs own and use Rockbox-targets and they don't have
telechips (yet)! Possibly you can find user-devoted forums on the net for
specific players that have telechips MCUs and in them you might find
interested volunteers to join you in this quest.
